In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Gainward Ghost OC 6GB.

The GTX 1660 has a 15 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce RTX 2080, but the GeForce RTX 2080 has 96 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1660. As a result, the GeForce RTX 2080 exhibits a 144.2 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 15 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce RTX 2080, but the GeForce RTX 2080 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1660. As a result, the GeForce RTX 2080 exhibits a 23.6 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 less than a year after the GeForce RTX 2080, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

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 GeForce RTX 2080 has 2048 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 GeForce RTX 2080 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce RTX 2080 has 255.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1660, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 is massively better than the GTX 1660.

The GeForce GTX 1660 Gainward Ghost OC 6GB has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2080 has 2944. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1660 is 2577 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 is 5299. The GeForce RTX 2080 having 2722 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce RTX 2080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1660.

The GeForce GTX 1660 Gainward Ghost OC 6GB requires 130 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2080 requires 215 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 1660 and a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the GeForce RTX 2080. The GeForce RTX 2080 requires 85 Watts more than the GTX 1660 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce RTX 2080 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 The GeForce RTX 2080 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Turing Architecture. This card has also been rumoured to be called the GeForce GTX 2080 or the GeForce GTX 1180. Architecture It equips a Turing GPU Codenamed GT104 which is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 2944 Shader Processing Units, 184 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It also has 368 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU Name: TU104-400A-A1 GPU The central unit runs at 1515MHz and goes up to 1800MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448 Gb/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 215W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with available 8-pin + 6-pin power connector. Performance Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 suggests it will be faster than the Geforce GTX 1080 Ti, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2080 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
