    Phoronix: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Linux Benchmarks

    Last week NVIDIA announced the GeForce GTX 1660 as the newest RTX-less Turing GPU but costing only $219+ USD. The GTX 1660 is a further trimmed down version of the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti that launched several weeks prior. After picking up an ASUS GeForce GTX 1660 Phoenix Edition, here are Linux OpenGL/Vulkan gaming benchmarks compared to a wide assortment of AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards under Ubuntu.

    Another question -- have you used driver which is in official ubuntu repo, or installed nvidia driver manually?

    OK, thanks. I was here for the first time and did not pay attention.

    You missed it, all the hardware/software information is clearly displayed on a table on the second page.

    Michael any change to have performance per dollar comparison of Radeon VII with rest modern GPUs?

    Absolute most people out there do not undervolt their GPUs, so this mantra that AMD "shines" when being undervolted is just a stupid excuse to justify very poor AMD's showing for the past three years.

    Also, undervolting is a huge lottery - works for some and doesn't work for others.
    While I'm aware it's anecdotal, undervolting my previous two AMD GPUs helped with performance more than anything. Under gaming loads, my 260x would hit 90C w/o undervolting (75-80C afterwards) and my 580 went from 75-85C to 65C. Both instances prevented throttling...yeah, that 260x ran really hot...surprised it lasted 7 or 8 years...

    I'm also just as curious of the effect that undervolting would have on Nvidia GPUs. Since throttling would make my 580 have a 45/60 in the min/max FPS tests versus the 50/60 I have afterwards, makes me wonder if Nvidia cards are in a similar situation after a bit of use.

    For fairness sake, I imagined some sort of "gaming" motherboard with an automagic undervolting option being used (do those exist? I know automagic overclock exists) -- anyhoo, whatever that comes up with is what the tests would use.

    Also, coin mining made undervolting rise in popularity. It's safe to assume more people are undervolting and bios modding now than they ever were.

    Watch those ASUS cards. I've had issues with their heatsinks not being properly seated and the fans locking up after six months.

    I can only assume that nvidia is no longer making series 10 dies anymore and has fully moved onto their 12nm process for all things, which is why we are seeing such cards as this as a replacement for older gen stuff. There isn't a huge leap in performance but it means nvidia can forget about 16/14nm?

    The frames per second per watt graphs would have been interesting for Hitman and Paraview
