NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti vs RTX 2060 – pure performance comparison

Today we are looking at two GPUs that are sitting in the opposite spots of the hierarchy of their family. As of now, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti happens to be the flagship of the GTX 16xx graphics cards, while the RTX 2060 seems to be the underdog in the Ray-tracing enabled GPUs. That’s why we thought it would be a good idea to put it side by side and pick a champion if we are not taking the ray-tracing capabilities in mind (since the RTX 2060 is the obvious winner there).

Specs overview

Spec-wise these two devices are different, yet so alike. They feature the NVIDIA’s N18E-Gx Turing architecture, where the GTX 1660 Ti has an N18E-G0 core, while the RTX 2060 is equipped with an N18E-G1. The main difference between the two is the amount of CUDA cores – 1536 vs 1920 for the GTX 1660 Ti and the RTX 2060, respectively. This means, that the former has a lower TDP – 80W, compared to 90W of the latter. Additionally, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti works at a base frequency of 1455 MHz and a Boost one of 1590 MHz, whereas the RTX 2060 goes significantly lower – 960-1200 MHz, respectively.

If we consider the memory, both of them feature 6GB of GDDR6 VRAM, built across a 192-bit bus. However, the higher memory frequency of the RTX 2060 results in a significantly higher bandwidth – 336 GB/s vs 288 GB/s.

Benchmarks

In 3 out of 4 synthetic benchmarks, the GTX 1660 Ti scores a better result than its opponent. It is not very big but is still a difference, isn’t it?

Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Results are from the Unigine Heaven 3.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Results are from the Unigine Heaven 4.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Results are from the Unigine Superposition benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Gaming tests

Moreover, in real life gaming, we saw the margin to drop even further to almost negligible results. However, the win is once again in the hands of GTX 1660 Ti, even by a couple of fps per setting, per game.

Conclusion

This battle was fought neck on neck throughout its entirety. However, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti emerged as a winner with victories in both the synthetic benchmark and gameplay segments. Actually, RTX 2060 was very close to the match its competitor’s results in real life gaming, although it failed to do so by very little.
