RX 570 vs GTX 1660?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, I can't decide between saving AUD$120 And getting an RX 570, or just going with a 1660. Is the performance gap worth the $120? The PC will be used for gaming and HTPC duties.

 

Thanks!

Do you need that kind of performance? What game you will be playing?

570 shall handle ALL games at high setting, 1080p 60fps (with custom setting for a few specific games)

1660ti shall handle most games at ultra 1080p with enough headroom for few more yrs, also overclocks to match 1660ti/ 1070/ti

1660 of course. Just use it for longer and it will pay for itself.

There are options between the two like RX 580 and 1060 6GB you might want to consider. 1070 is above a 1660 but sells used for what a 1660 (non-TI) sells new.

Yeah im pretty sure the 580, 1060 and 1660 where all very close in performance.

1660 is on higher tier compare to 580/1060. It generally faster than a 590 and could reach reference 980 Ti performance.

Hm.. the benchmarks i saw showed the 1660 only about 5-8ish fps ahead in most titles although it could very alot between games or benchmarks.

I could see the 1660 beating the RX 590 but the 980 TI seems to be pushing it. The 1070 slightly beats the 1660 TI so I am having a hard time with 980 TI being beat by 1660 (non-TI).

I've seen overclocked RX580's able to get very close to 590 levels of performance. I love my 570, but kind of wish I got the 580 now

Wait for AMD's next gen of ~$200-$300 'mid grade' GPU's that are rumored to be released. Will probably save you $100 😃

Keyword here is "reference 980 Ti" 

 

TPU review of 590 Nitro show 980 Ti is 3% faster compare to 590 and 16% slower compare to 1070.

and in 1660 Ventus review, the card is 10% faster compare to 590 and 12% slower compare to 1070.

The 980 Ti is nerfed slower for newer games anyway.

Thats essentially what a 590 is, an overclocked 580 lol

Reference being the keyword is understandable. Although nerfing is denied, Nvidia does admit to refusal to support old hardware. Wouldn't be surprised if nerffing is passively done with plausible denial.

Well, there is no nerfing but more like neglecting to optimize older hardware which is understandable from business stand point.

That is what I stated that they admit to. And you're right. It makes business sense.

RX580 or RX590 if you can get one cheap (they are essentially same performance). Still very good cards.

Right now I have a RX570 and IMO, the performance gain isn't worth the cost to upgrade to a RX590. I think a RX 580 is about 10% more powerful than a RX570 and a RX590 is roughly 10% more powerful than that. I'm waiting for a mid grade navi to be released around $200-250. I usually don't upgrade until I absolutely have to, so in a year or so if they haven't released the new navi I'd probably get a RX590 if I can get one cheap.
