GeForce RTX 2060 vs GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER specs and performance

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the GeForce RTX 2060 GPU is faster than the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER in gaming.

In our comparison, the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER has a slightly higher core clock speed. This is the frequency at which the graphics core is running at. While not necessarily an indicator of overall performance, this metric can be useful when comparing two GPUs based on the same architecture. In addition, the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER also has a slightly higher boost clock speed. The boost clock speed is the frequency that the GPU core can reach if the temperature is low enough. The allows for higher performance in certain scenarios.

Next up, in terms of GPU memory, they both have the same amount of memory at 6 GiB. If you're planning at playing games at high resolutions with high-quality textures, you will need a lot of memory.

In addition, the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER has a slightly lower TDP at 125 W when compared to the GeForce RTX 2060 at 160 W. Heat output doesn't match power consumption directly but, it's a good estimate.

In terms of raw gaming performance in our GPU benchmark, the GeForce RTX 2060 is better than the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER.
