In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super Gainward Ghost OC 6GB.

The GTX 1660 has a 283 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega, but the RX Vega has 168 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1660. As a result, the RX Vega exhibits a 184.6 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 283 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega, but the RX Vega has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1660. As a result, the RX Vega exhibits a 6.4 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 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.

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 RX Vega has 2048 MB more video memory than the GTX 1660, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 1660 has superior memory performance.

The GTX 1660 has 80 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX Vega, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1660 is much better than the RX Vega.

The Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB has 4096 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Gainward Ghost OC 6GB has 1408. However, the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 6332 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1660 is 2577. The RX Vega having 3755 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX Vega delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1660.

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 Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB requires 295 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Gainward Ghost OC 6GB requires 125 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the RX Vega and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 1660. The RX Vega requires 170 Watts more than the GTX 1660 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX Vega may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1660.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the fifth (5.0) Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The Vega 10 XT GPU offers support for HBM-2 Memory, DirectX 12.1 and Open GL 4.6. Vega 10 XT is the Full Variant of the GPU with 64 Compute Units activated, offering 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1247MHz with a boost clock speed of 1546MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with stacked HBM-2 Memory and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 2048-bit memory interface.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 8GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
The GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming. The 8GB HBM2 framebuffer should be enough to prevent it bottlenecking performance in any AAA title at 4K.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 295W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
The Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB is in in the same region as the GeForce GTX 1080. However, the ultra-wide HBM2 memory may offer the Radeon RX Vega an advantage at higher resolutions.
System Suggestions
Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB HBM2 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x 2160 (4K). We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
The GeForce GTX 1660 Super Gainward Ghost OC 6GB is an entry to mid-level Nvidia graphics card which is expected to launched at the end of October 2019. The GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB 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.
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 TU116-300-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.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of fast GDDR6 through a 192-bit memory interface, while the memory clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective.
Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 125W, this graphics card requires one 8-pin power connector.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1660 Super Gainward Ghost OC 6GB 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 quite a bit faster performance than the GTX 1060.

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1660 Super 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.
