How well can the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q run games
25 Mar 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A strong performing piece of hardware, GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q can still meet a lot of the game system requirements of modern games. All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q is at running the more popular games of 2020. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 387.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Grand Theft Auto VI will get 5 FPS with the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q, Cyberpunk 2077 predicted to get 26 FPS and Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord getting 48 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q will run the upcoming game Grand Theft Auto VI to a weak performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 10 FPS, Medium: 8 FPS, High: 5 FPS and Ultra: 4 FPS. Another game researched was Cyberpunk 2077 with predictions of L: 51FPS, M: 40FPS, H: 27FPS, U: 19FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord, which returned L: 97FPS, M: 76FPS, H: 51FPS, U: 37FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q is not the best resolution for this GPU, but if you adjust some graphics settings, perhaps lowering to medium or low at 1440p then this graphics card might be ok.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q in your PC? This GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q then a good choice would be 20 Series GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile as this is better than 846 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 33% better performance as well.

GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Mobile is a mid-range GeForce 16 Series graphics card for laptops based on the Turing GPU architecture. It is smaller and doesn't drain the battery as fast compared to the mobile version, but it is weaker in performance.


Architecture
The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. Unlike the RTX series, the GTX series does not support real-time ray-tracing.


GPU
It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU116, which has 1536 Shader Processing Units, 96 TMUs, 48 ROPs and 24 SMs. The central unit runs at 1455 MHz and goes up to 1590 MHz in Boost mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1500MHz, or 12GHz effective.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 80W the GTX 1660 Ti Mobile is averagely resource-intensive and will fairly significantly reduce laptop battery life at full load.


System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Mobile is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
