I gotta disagree. The 1060 3gb out performed my 1050ti by a long shot on every game I wanted to play. Yes the lower vram really sucks on open world games but man it's much smoother. Good for budget builds and the second hand market is great for them. I paid 80 bucks for mine on facebook and I haven't seen too many go for more than 120 on there. Great card but obviously a cash grab on nvidias part. Hopefully going to grab a 1660 ti soon, since I really can never justify something beefier until I completely rebuild my system from the ground up. The i5 4690k is going to start holding me back soon. Great video as usual though!

I had to spring extra money for the MSI Gaming X 1660 vs the cheaper EVGA because it has 2 DP connnectors. I wouldn't be able to run my 2 144z 1440p screens on the cheaper card. The 2nd screen would only run 30hz using DVI/HDMI

I just bought a 1660 6G for $219, and now after watching this video I'm beginning to think maybe I shouldn't have bought the card. Then I remind myself I'm using a GTX 780 XD

I’m a fan of value for money much like yourself - a reference model is fine if it saves a few bucks and offers a acceptable noise and thermals. That being said I usually buy used so why am I commenting on a review for a new card? Good chat.

Currently own the 1060 6GB. I will patiently wait and see what happens at the end of the year. If I do upgrade, it will probably be to the RTX 2060.

I started to buy the 219 card until I realize it took up 3 slots. My rig uses a pci express slot for a wifi card and I am wary of moving my cards around when I got the airflow just right. I am also considering trying sdd out and a 3 slot video card would nix that idea.

I got the Palit GTX 1060 6Gb dual fan... It's a beast, with no hassle I got the core up to 1950mhz and memory 4050 mhz and it's around 78°C on a all night stress test, but I bet it can go over 2000mhz with no prob since the fans are at only 65% during the stress test

People talk about performance per dollar but all I gotta say is I can be saving all the money in the world and be getting a “great value” but if I’m getting 40 FPS, I’m getting 40 fps. No bullshit. If you can save up a little more and be patient, don’t settle for less. Big balls, big fps... and buy used lol, legit like no difference besides a little dust, but your shit is gonna get dust either way so who the fuck cares? You save like +$100, just don’t buy miner cards.

I hate this price system coz you're like I could just save $30 more for a slightly better card, then you save that money and think, well if I save another $30 I can get an even better card and one thing leads to another and before you know it you're spending an extra $200 than you originally planned on a component that will be outdated in 2 years.

3gb card from Nvidia. I'm sure it's nice but wyf where they thinking. The 1060 6gb is one hellava budget card andceske especially if you 4K game but the Amd/ati RX580 8gb is still the overall ultimate budget card for 1080p gaming.

I legit bought that same card and let me tell you, I LOVE IT, The TI keeps it SOOOO cool, my room is like 15 degrees cooler now, my case doesnt even get hot now, The card IS SEXY looking, its quiet, it gives me like 40 more FPS over my old GTX 1060 6GB, Idc, its legit like a 1070 ti and I love it. Same as a 2060 without RTX, so its a dab.

My overclocked 1060 from 2016 is faster than the average 1660 on UserBenchmark
reNegade oVery0u.
well, you get the same performance as the 1660 Ti if you overclock the 1660 non Ti... by 130mhz core + vram 900mhz. its capable of overclocking by extremely, so what your point?

In short if you have a gtx1060 6gb no need to upgrade to 1660.

+Quplas but it is nice to know that something purchased on the tail end of production and at a discount is still relevant and not compleatly rendered irrelevant like the gtx960m being compleatly overtaken by the mobile version of the gtx1050 due to nvdia dropping the M for its laptops. Side topic is max q basically a new name for the m of the gtx and rtx lineup?

Somebody who upgrades their gpu every generation has probably not bought a 1060 anyways, so it's a moot point.

Should of compared with the 2060 also. I wouldn't touch these because they do a poor job of handling games at high quality right now so there's no future proofing. My gtx-970, it had a ton of future proofing. And where's the AMD cards in the same price range?

Ryzen 5 2600x, Asus b450-f strix,8gb trident z 3200, 27in 2k monitor 144htz. Currently running a 1060 6gb armor(over clocked with no crashes) . The gpu is struggling to push 2 monitors under load. Should I get the 1660 or just save for a better card? My price range is about $200. I just built this system but I didn't upgrade my gpu because I thought it would be fine. It ran fine on my old system.

Sort of.... IF we're looking at performance per dollar only. However, the 1660 out performs the 580 pretty much across the board, BUT it retails for ~$50 more, and the 1660Ti nearly $100 more. Personally going for a rebated RX 580 8GB just to be an AMD purest(have a Ryzen 5 2600X ready. Got it crazy cheap on ebay). If I find a killer deal on a 1660 or 1660ti, who knows I might just snag it.

Just bought one of these because I'm building my first pc and I'm on a hard budget. I used the extra $30 from getting the basic model to get a little more wiggle room for the ssd. I'll probably keep using it until I find a good deal on something better.

"With 30 bucks more you can get the Ti version" *Laugh in italian* Here prices make no sense at all: -1060 3g 200€ -1660 236€ -1060 6g 270-300€ -1660Ti 300-350€ With almost 100€ of difference the 1660ti isn't worth It imho, and the old 10s serie make 0 sense with the prices.

How much better is a 1660 than a 760, 40%? I've been waiting YEARS for realistic prices for an upgrade. I just want to run Dark Souls 3 at 60fps without overclocking on minimum settings

I mean, that's generally common sense. You don't upgrade every generation (unless you have to have the best of the best.) If you have a 1060, wait for the 2100(?) series 60 card that comes out at a similar price point.

I have a gt 1030, a historical intel i5 2500 with 8 gigs of RAM, a very cool case (I mean by temps ☺️) and a 1080p 60 hz display and I only can play a "real game" by setting everything to low, close all the other applications behind, like CCleaner and those apps which keeps running on background(seriously) and I still get 13-15 fps in Assassin's Creed Unity for example, oh and the vram usage is 1900 mb, which is almost all of it 😁 So, he is damn right, gaming with a gt1030 is a no go... I wonder if I crank up the settings all the way to the ultra high what happens?

Thanks for the video. Now I kindly want your advice. I am a Sim racer, I play Assetto Corsa, Race Room, rfactor 2 and project cars 2. Currently I have the Radeon hd 7850 and I feel that I am on the edge of sacrificing the quality of the visuals to keep the preference in a good shape, specially I do online racing. Now my question is which graphic card you recommend out of these three cards: 1- Radeon RX 590 2- GTX 1660 3- GTX 1660 ti All I need is to run these simulators with ultimate graphics possible without any problems. My budget is around $270 and I don't do any other games. Just sim racing and I'd like to get the VR maybe next year. Thanks in advance

Correct me if I’m wrong but it seems like the GTX (insert 10 or 16here)60 lineup looks like this... In order of least to best performance: GTX 1060 3gb GDDR5 GTX 1060 6gb GDDR5 GTX 1660 6gb GDDR5 GTX 1660 TI 6gb GDDR6 If I built a pc, I would probably get the GTX 1660 cause I would also get an intel core i5.

The world in anything you can imagine really, is starting to reach peak evolution In materialistic things. Cars are becoming electric and shit but there design is staying the same throughout the last 5 years , and I can't see huge exterior or interior changes except for advanced technology. Just goes to show graphics cards after 3 years of having the 1060 , 1660 hasn't changed much, meaning they have reached peak performance now and there is only MINIMAL difference. Same applies for many phones. Iphone is legit getting design upgrades but barely any differences to performance compared to previous ones. If anything I think all these companies in any industry like NVIDIA, rushed all their releases of cards and have hit a dead end. Fuck man so many examples, even games can relate. Literally fortnite is soon dead, last season 5 there has been NO difference except for bullshit add-ons that get vaulted.

dairycow009 if you're not dissatisfied with current performance, then I wouldn't upgrade if I were you. This generation of cards just doesn't have a big enough jump in performance. The upcoming AMD cards seem to be promising for their price point, probably worth waiting for.
