NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile vs NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Mobile

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile

► remove from comparison

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 for laptops is a fast mid-range gaming graphics card for laptops. It is based on the desktop RTX 2060 chip but at reduced GPU clock rates (-30%) and reduces power consumption (80 - 90 Watt TGP versus 160 Watt for the desktop version).

NVIDIA manufacturers the Turing TU106 chip on a 12 nm FinFET process and includes features like Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) and Real-Time Ray Tracing (RTRT), which should combine to create more realistic lighting effects than older GPUs based on the company's Pascal architecture (if the games supports it). The RTX 2060 is also DisplayPort 1.4 ready, while there is also support for HDMI 2.0b, HDR, Simultaneous Multi-Projection (SMP) and H.265 video en/decoding (PlayReady 3.0).

The gaming performance of the mobile RTX 2060 is similar to an old Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 (Desktop) and clearly behind the desktop RTX 2060. The mobile GTX 1660 Ti is only a few percent behind in our gaming benhcmarks, but offers no raytracing features built in the GPU. For demanding games of 2019, the RTX 2060 is most suited for full HD (1080p) and high / ultra settings. However, there is not much headroom to activate the taxing raytracing features in most games.

The power consumption is rated at 80 - 90 Watt TGP by Nvidia and therefore similar to the Max-Q variants of the RTX 2070 and RTX 2080. In our real world laptop-tests the power draw of the whole systems running The Witcher 3 shows that the RTX 2060 slots in slightly below the Max-Q Variants and slightly above the GTX 1660 Ti mobile (as expected).

► remove from comparison NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Mobile

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti for laptops is a mobile graphics card that is based on the Turing architecture (TU116 chip). Compared to the faster RTX 2000 GPUs (e.g. RTX 2060), the 1660Ti integrates no Raytracing or Tensor cores. The performance is similar to the old GTX 1070 (laptop) but at a reduced TGP of 80 Watt (versus 115 Watt). Compared to the desktop GTX 1660 Ti, the clock speeds are reduced (3% lower base, 10% lower boost).

In April 2020 Nvidia refreshed the GTX 1660 Ti with the new codename N18E-G0-A1 with similar specs and pin compatible to the refreshed RTX chips (e.g., RTX 2070 Super Mobile).

The Turing generation did not only introduce raytracing for the RTX cards, but also optimized the architecture of the cores and caches. According to Nvidia the CUDA cores offer now a concurrent execution of floating point and integer operations for increased performance in compute-heavy workloads of modern games. Furthermore, the caches were reworked (new unified memory architecture with twice the cache compared to Pascal). This leads to up to 50% more instructions per clock and a 40% more power efficient usage compared to Pascal.

The power consumption of the 1660Ti for latops is specified at 80 Watt TGP (Total Graphics Power) by Nvidia and therefore 20 Watt higher than the efficient (and slower) Max-Q variant of the 1660 Ti. The TU116 chip is manufactured in 12nm FFN at TSMC.
