1660 Ti Strix OC FPS Performance,bad?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Rise of the Tomb Raider:

Guys I cranked all the settings to Very High and enabled SMAA,I'm on 1440p.

In open world scenes I get FPS drop to around 47 minimum,and in most scenes around 55.

I would like much more then 60,but then again it's 1660 Ti.

I thought about getting 1080 Ti,but spending 400+ euros for almost twice FPS,is it really worth it?

Would I notice any difference in gameplay?

Is this bad FPS for smooth gameplay?

Maybe game is not ideal optimized,because in Far Cry New Dawn I get well more then 80 fps.

The problem was I sold 1080p monitor for which I planned this card,and got 1440P after purchasing card.

I know this is not 1440p card,but does it really suck for 1440p?

Obviously the 1080ti would be quite a bit more powerful. As for does the 1660ti suck at 1440p, that's down to your own preferences, and if you think you're getting a bad experience or not. If I were recommending a 1440p card, I wouldn't go lower than a 2060, but as I say, all that matters is what looks good to you

The 1660Ti is a great 1080p card, not so much 1440p. You're FPS is right around what you'd expect. A 1080Ti would absolutely outmatch a 1660Ti, especially at 1440p.

There's hardly a difference between a 1660Ti and 2060 asides from ray tracing (if that's your thing), and a couple more FPS at best. If OP is really interested in 1440p gaming at high refresh rate, he should be looking at a 5700XT/2070S minimum. Or go with a used 1080Ti like he mentioned.

My 1080p results with my extremely overclocked GTX 1660:

Quote

Raw Benchmark Statistics for 1 run:

    Benchmark Statistics (Run No. 1):
        Min FPS: 0.0
        Max FPS: 144.0
        Average FPS: 88.5
        Num Frames: 13922

Average Benchmark Statistics for 1 runs with 0 extremes excluded:
    Min FPS: 0.0
    Max FPS: 144.0
    Average FPS: 88.5

 

My card is more powerful than yours (it's between a 1660 Ti and a 2060) but 1440p is not a smooth experience.

My 1660 is sadly the second powerful 1660 in the world,it used to be first since i have broken world records with it.

 

Anyway i recommend to just play in 1080p in that title.

The difference is significant but not huge,you can get there with overclocking as long as you have sufficient cooling,

If you go that way you might need to do something about the power limit of the card.

Dude I can OC this model and get performance bigger then 1070 Ti in games,but why would I...

The difference between stock 1660 Ti and RTX 2060 is few frames towards RTX,but if I'd OC this model I'd have advantage...

Just google OC 1660 TI Strix

I wouldn't consider the different "significant". It obviously varies depending on the game, but I'd say it's probably an average of 10-12% better, which translates to under 10fps in most games at 1080p. If you applied it to his average of 55 in Tomb Raider, that's only an extra 6.6fps. Taking him from 55 to 62fps. Which i don't think would make him happy..

 

I also would never recommend on buying a card banking on needing to OC that card for good performance, that's too risky, and IMO since OP already has a 1660Ti, upgrading from that to a 2060 just isn't worth the money. He said he would like "much more"' than 60fps, so I'd probably classify that as high refresh rate, which I really think he needs a better GPU than a 2060 for. Especially if he gets one that's just scraping him by at 1440p at the FPS he wants now, likely in a year or so he'll be back in the same position he's in now.

Why don't you just OC the fuck out of your card then...?

Why should I risk OC the card for just 5 fps more?

Sure, I would definitely recommend the 5700XT first for 1440p. I'm saying the minimum I would go would be a 2060 (which I also would not recommend buying anyway, because the 5600XT is better value)

Damage components OC it...

Besides this model is factory preclocked for GPU...I can OC memory but not worth it for few frames...

If you keep your temperatures at a safe level there's essentially zero risk to overclocking. Everyone calls it "free performance" for a reason. Also "factory OCs" don't really mean anything in regards to how far you can OC the card.

I love overclocking so i am fine with that...

But as long as you know what you are doing an OCed card can last for a long time.

I slapped a cooler from a 2070 on mine so it's nice and cool,after a hour of MSI Kombustor i get a max temp of 73 with my crazy OC :D
