Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti for simracing

    I've seen a lot of great reviews for the Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti but none that mention simracing. Have you used it for simracing and what do you think?

    Please don't comment if you have NOT used this card. No disrespect intended just looking for reliable opinions. Thanks :)

    If you like to play at 1080p@60FPS it is a rock solid choice. But the 2080Ti is such a better, bigger, COOLER card ;) Just stop being cheap (You really do only live once afterall!) and pony-up for the badboy 2080Ti, or holdout for the 3080Ti or whatever is next. Then get the Rift-S or whatever, or a sick ultrawide to go with it ;)

    Nvidia works well for Simracing.
    1660Ti is on par with GTX 1070, so yea it's fine.
    I wouldn't recommend Turing after all. 2070 is OK isch, not more.
    2080ti is worse. It was the smallest Step ever VS old generation and the most expensive one. Nothing cool about it and I do say it with a 2070.

    Also that he recommends a Rift S. Boi you seem to have no clues.
    Rift S is really a letdown overall.
    Only the higher resolution is nice..

    Is this any kind of joke??

    So there's a guy here asking about a 300€ card and your answer is "meh, it's ok but you better go for an over 1’000€ card"??

    Holy Christ, we must be all losing our mind here waiting for the 0.8 or something

    GTX 1660 Ti appears to be the best bang-for-buck card at the moment especially for 1080 and 1440p gaming. You might need something beefier if you are pushing more pixels though.

    I'm upgrading from a 970, so I'm also looking at a 1660 or 1660 Ti, although I'm holding off until Navi is released to see what AMD brings to the table for mid range graphics cards.

    It’s a shame the 1080ti is now out of production as that probably would beat a 2070 and is an all round better card and could have been had for about £450 a few months ago.

    I don't have an EVGA GTX1660Ti SC3 Gamers Edition and it is great for games but not for simracing. Beware!

    @Deatroy, do you have a 1660Ti or used one?

    @henkjansmits you said you DON"T have one. Did you mean you DO? If you do, can you explain why it's no good for simracing? Does it struggle to hit 60fps (or is a higher framerate needed)?

    My Desktop has a RTX 2070 due VR.
    My Laptop has also 2070 Mobile. Before the 2070 Laptop I had 3 Months the 1070 Mobile until it died and it was quite similar to the 1660ti besides the power consumption.
    Also I read a lot in hardware magazines for CPU's and GPU's, doesn't matter which brand.

    'Simracing' and 'gaming' are the same, a graphics card can't differentiate between the two.

    The 1660 series have just been recently released and it's unlikely anyone reading this thread owns one. If you want an idea of how they perform with ACC, check out gameplay videos or see if any of the hardware based tech sites have included ACC into their test suite. You might have to wait, but you'll get a better idea of how they'll perform.

    Otherwise it'll be a thread saying this card is best ad infinitum.

    I have a 1660 ti gaming and it runs very good on high settings on 1440p. Stable 60 fps(vsync on, vsync off around 80 fps) on a 55" OLED tv. Running it with a Ryzen 5 2600 and 16 GB @3200, all put in a B450 mobo.
    Before this card I had a RX580 8 GB and it's a huge step forward.
    You get a very good card for the money

    Nice setup there, thanks for posting that. I'm thinking of moving over to Ryzen with a B450 board, so that bit of info is useful as well.

    @Supercyco Thank you. This is the kind of info I'm looking for and from someone who has used the card.

    I'm running a GTX 1660 Ti and an i7 4790.

    Tested full 30 car grid at Monza starting last.
    Full Medium settings. Lowest 48 fps at T1. 60 fps after field spread.
    Full High settings. Lowest 41 fps at T1. 55 fps avg after field spread.
    Full Epic settings. Lowest 38 fps at T1. 50 fps avg after field spread.

    If you lower some unimportant settings obviously you can get higher fps.

    I am using a rtx2060 on epic settings. The game runs great. Maybe one to consider.

    Out of interest, would you care to share your processor spec? Also, what FPS are you getting, and at what resolution with a full AI grid?

    EDIT. Sorry to hijack thread, but I'm interested in this card's performance.
