In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super Palit StormX OC 6GB.

The GTX 1660 has a 404 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 980, but the GTX 980 has 168 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1660. As a result, the GTX 980 exhibits a 153.7 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 404 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 980, but the GTX 980 has 80 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1660. As a result, the GTX 980 exhibits a 70.7 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 three years more recently than the GTX 980, and so the GTX 1660 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 980 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 GTX 980 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 GTX 980 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 980 has 112.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1660, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 980 is massively better than the GTX 1660.

The GeForce GTX 1660 Super Palit StormX OC 6GB has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI has 4096. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1660 is 2577 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 980 is 6724. The GTX 980 having 4147 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 980 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1660.

The GTX 1660 transistor size technology is 16 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 980. This means that the GTX 1660 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 980.

The GeForce GTX 1660 Super Palit StormX OC 6GB requires 125 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI requires 350 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 1660 and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the GTX 980. The GTX 980 requires 225 Watts more than the GTX 1660 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 980 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 Super Palit StormX 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 Palit StormX 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 Palit StormX 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 GTX 980 4GB SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 980 4GB put together using NVIDIA's SLI technology.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It consists of 2 GPUs codenamed GM204-400-A1 which, together, offer 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 128 ROPs, on a 512-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 1126MHz and goes up to 1216MHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1753MHz.

Power Consumption
Power Consumption lies between 300W and 400W.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks prove that at 4K (3840x2160) GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI is over 7% faster than AMD's Radeon R9 295X2.

System Suggestions
We recommend a very strong processor (Intel Core i7 Six Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 16GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI.
