In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Gainward Ghost OC 6GB.

The GTX 1660 has a 165 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 2060, but the RTX 2060 has 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1660. As a result, the RTX 2060 exhibits a 29.2 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 165 MHz higher core clock speed and 1 more Render Output Units than the RTX 2060. This results in the GTX 1660 providing 9.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. 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 RTX 2060, 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 GTX 1660 Gainward Ghost OC 6GB and the GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 1660 has 48.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 2060, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1660 is noticeably better than the RTX 2060.

The GeForce GTX 1660 Gainward Ghost OC 6GB has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 has 1920. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1660 is 2577 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 2060 is 3226. The RTX 2060 having 649 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 2060 delivers a noticeably 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 2060 6GB GDDR5 requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 1660 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RTX 2060. The RTX 2060 requires 20 Watts more than the GTX 1660 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the RTX 2060 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than 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 RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 is a mid-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance graphics card based on the Turing architecture. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. The GeForce RTX 2060 does support real-time ray-tracing and excels at 1080p screen resolution. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106 which has 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 47 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1365 MHz and goes up to 1680 MHz, in Boost mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of slower GDDR5 memory compared to the GDDR6 model, running through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1500MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with an 8-pin power connector. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
