NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB Video Card Review


VRMark and Superposition Benchmark

VRMark is a relatively new benchmark aimed at those that might be thinking about buying an HTC Vive or an Oculus Rift and knowing what hardware will give them the best VR gaming experience. VRMark includes two VR benchmark tests that run on your monitor, no headset required, or on a connected HMD. At the end of each test, you’ll see whether your PC is VR ready, and if not, how far it falls short.

We used the Cyan Room to benchmark our cards as it is a DirectX 12 benchmark. Sitting between the Orange and Blue Rooms, it features a large, complex scene and many eye-catching effects. Cyan Room shows how using an API with less overhead can help developers deliver impressive VR experiences even on modest PC systems. The target frame rate for the Cyan Room benchmark when running in desktop mode is 109 FPS. The rendering resolution is 2264 1348, which is 1132 1348 per eye.

Benchmark Results: The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Tifinished with a score of 5,818 points. A very solid score that put it ahead of the GeForce GTX 1070, Radeon RX 590 and Radeon RX Vega 56 cards.

Superposition Benchmark

UNIGINE introduced the Superposition Benchmark in April 2017 and it contains a benchmark based on the UNIGINE 2 Engine that is pretty tough on modern graphics cards.

We ran the Superposition Benchmark performance test with the 1080P Extreme preset.

The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti completed the 1080P Extreme preset in Superposition with a score of 3,447points. That is a strong finish that puts it ahead of the Geforce GTX 1070 and Radeon RX 590 models.

Here are the FPS results from the benchmark for those that would like more details. The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti averaged just over 25 FPS and that isn’t bad as this benchmark makes most cards beg for mercy as you can see from the chart above. The only single-GPU solution that can run this benchmark with over a 60 FPS average would be the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti models.
