In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Armor OC 6GB are massively better than the AMD Radeon RX Vega 8.

The GTX 1660 has a 599 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX Vega. This results in the GTX 1660 providing 60.1 GTexel/s better texturing performance. 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 599 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the RX Vega. This results in the GTX 1660 providing 43.6 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 over a year more recently than the RX Vega, 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 RX Vega.

The GTX 1660 has 2048 MB more video memory than the RX Vega, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1660 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX Vega has 166.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1660, which means that the memory performance of the RX Vega is massively better than the GTX 1660.

The GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Armor OC 6GB has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX Vega 8 has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1660 is 2598 and the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 841. The GTX 1660 having 1757 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1660 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX Vega.

The GTX 1660 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RX Vega. This means that the GTX 1660 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RX Vega.

The GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Armor OC 6GB requires 130 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon RX Vega 8. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 1660 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the RX Vega. The GTX 1660 has been recommended a PSU with 50 Watts more than the RX Vega. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1660 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX Vega.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Armor 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 MSI Armor OC 6GB is a dual-slot graphics card with a dual-fan Torx Fan 2.0 cooling solution, Zero Frozr, custom PCB and solid anti-bend backplate. This graphics card has above 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 1845 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 MSI Armor 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 Radeon RX Vega M GL is a dedicated Graphics processor found in Intel's Desktop 8th Gen G-Series CPUs. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed Vega M which offers 20 Compute Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 931MHz and goes up to 1011MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU utilises its own onboard HBM2 memory. Radeon RX Vega M GH has 4GB of second-generation High Bandwidth Memory, clocked at 1.4Gb/s. Sat on a 1024-bit memory interface, this provides total memory bandwidth of 179.2GB/s. Performance The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GTX 1050. Select the Specific Version you have of this Graphics Card According to your Processor for a more Accurate Rank and experience using our tools. System Suggestions We recommend 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon RX Vega M GH.
