The first of the mobile RDNA graphics cards is here, in the face of the AMD Radeon RX 5300M. With it come the questions of “How good it is against X graphics card?”.
We have already done some comparisons and are continuing to do more, in order to give you the most complete picture of should the RX 5300M be the GPU that will be powering your next device. For today we have picked a quite powerful challenger, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.
In 3DMark Fire Strike, the GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q performed 21% better than the RX 5300M. The same happened in Unigine Heaven 4.0, where the NVIDIA Graphics card scored 55% higher, and for the final benchmark, Unigine Superposition, the GTX 1660 Ti dominated again, this time with a 45% lead in performance. In the Gaming tests, which featured four of the most graphics-intensive games, the GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q had a big lead that was permanently in the double-digit numbers.
Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)
The GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q definitely hides its age pretty well, and if we had taken the nameplates off, you wouldn’t even think for a second that this card would perform this well. It had a 21%, 55%, and 45% lead over the RX 5300M in 3DMark Fire Strike, Unigine Heaven 4.0, and Unigine Superposition, respectively. In the gaming tests, the NVIDIA GPU outperformed its Team Red rival across all the games, regardless of the graphics settings.
