GTX 1660 and 1660 Ti mining benchmarks: tuning, overclocking and hashrate

Which graphics card to choose 1660, 1660 Ti or 1660 SUPER

After running a mining test for the GTX 1660 for comparison with the 1660 Ti, and the GTX 1660 SUPER, you can see that the model with the SUPER prefix, due to the use of more modern GDDR6 video memory, demonstrates higher performance than the GTX 1660 and at the same time its price is lower than 1660 Ti.

The test results showed that the more budgetary GTX 1660 SUPER is almost on par with the GTX 1660 Ti. Optimization of the chip for working with GDDR6 memory allowed to really increase the performance in mining.

Which manufacturer has released the best 1660 Ti / SUPER for mining, what to choose:

  • Armor;
  • Palit;
  • Msi;
  • Gigabyte.

It is difficult to give a definite answer, because comparative tests have not been carried out, and it is unlikely that the graphics processor of any manufacturer will be seriously different from the rest. An interesting option is the GTX 1660 Ti made by Gigabyte with a proprietary Windforce 3X cooling system, but this is one of the most expensive models.

As practice shows, even identical video cards assembled into one mining farm have a slight difference in hashrate among themselves.
