In the case of F1 2018 running on Linux via Steam Play (Proton + DXVK), the GeForce GTX 1660 could still deliver above a 60 FPS minimum/average at ultra high quality settings at 1080p. In fact, the GeForce GTX 1660 performance matched the Radeon RX Vega 56 running on RADV in this particular game. But the RX Vega 56 did have slightly better frame times than the GTX 1660.

The GeForce GTX 1660 could handle running at 1440p with high quality settings but with the Radeon RX Vega 56 inching ahead and the Radeon RX 590 getting closer to hitting this ASUS graphics card.

DiRT Rally 2.0 is a new Windows game that has been running remarkably well under Steam Play. In this game though with Proton + DXVK, the RADV performance comes out stronger than the NVIDIA Vulkan Linux driver. The GeForce GTX 1660 in this instance saw the Radeon RX 580 slightly ahead while the RX 590 was competing with the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.


Where the GeForce GTX 1660 easily beats out the NVIDIA competition, however, is in the performance-per-Watt.
