In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Gainward Ghost OC 6GB.

The GTX 1660 has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1080 Ti, but the GTX 1080 Ti has 136 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1660. As a result, the GTX 1080 Ti exhibits a 196.9 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 1660. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1660 has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1080 Ti, but the GTX 1080 Ti has 40 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1660. As a result, the GTX 1080 Ti exhibits a 56.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 1660. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 1660 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 1080 Ti, and so the GTX 1660 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 1080 Ti.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GTX 1080 Ti has 5120 MB more video memory than the GTX 1660, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1080 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1080 Ti has 292.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1660, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is massively better than the GTX 1660.

The GeForce GTX 1660 Gainward Ghost OC 6GB has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has 3584. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1660 is 2577 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is 7654. The GTX 1080 Ti having 5077 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1660.

The GTX 1660 transistor size technology is 4 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1080 Ti. This means that the GTX 1660 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1080 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1660 Gainward Ghost OC 6GB requires 130 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti requires 220 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 1660 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 1080 Ti. The GTX 1080 Ti requires 90 Watts more than the GTX 1660 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1080 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1660.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The GeForce GTX 1660 Gainward Ghost OC 6GB is an entry to mid-level Nvidia graphics card which launched on March 14th, 2019. The GeForce GTX 1660 is designed to compete against AMD's more affordable gaming cards such as the RX 570 and the RX 580, and replaces the outgoing GTX 1060. The GeForce GTX 1660 Gainward Ghost OC 6GB is a dual-slot graphics card with a dual-fan cooling solution, Expertool II compatibility, and is certified VR-Ready. This graphics card has average overclocking potential.

Architecture
The Turing GPU architecture aims for 30-50% as much performance as the previous-gen Pascal Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Turing TU116, more specifically the TU166-300-A1, which has 22 SM activated and thus 1408 Shader Processing Units, 88 TMUs, and 48 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1530 MHz and goes up to 1830 MHz with the Boost Clock, providing a small 3% overclock versus the reference model.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5 through a 192-bit memory interface, while the memory clock Operates at 2001MHz, or 8GHz effective.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 130W, this graphics card requires one 8-pin power connector and a minimum of a 450W power supply.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1660 will enable medium to high graphics performance on modern AAA 2018 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect this card to deliver around 50+ FPS on High graphics settings at 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will have slightly faster performance than the GTX 1060.

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1660 Gainward Ghost OC 6GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440, so our recommendation would be to use 1920x1080 in order to get the most out of your settings. We recommend a high-end processor such as the i5-8500 and 12GB of RAM for optimal performance.
Overview
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is the top 1000 Series graphics card and considered an Enthusiast graphics card based on the Pascal architecture.

Architecture
The Pascal architecture aims for twice as much Performance as the Maxwell Architecture and introduces support for second gen HBM.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed P102-300-A1 which has 3584 Shader Processing Units, 224 TMUs and 88 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1480MHz and goes up to 1584MHz, in Boost mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 11.2GB frame buffer of second gen GDDR5X memory, through a 352-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1376MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 220W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with 2 power connectors, a 6-pin and an 8-pin connector.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
