GeForce GTX 1060 3GB vs GeForce GTX 1660 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 3GB has a core clock speed of 1506 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 2000 MHz. It also features a 192-bit memory bus, and uses a 16 nm design. It features 1152 SPUs, 72 Texture Address Units, and 48 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, which makes use of a 12 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1500 MHz. The GDDR6 memory runs at a speed of 1500 MHz on this particular card. It features 1536 SPUs along with 96 Texture Address Units and 48 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti should be much faster than the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 294912 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1060 3GB 196608 MB/sec
Difference: 98304 (50%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti will be quite a bit (more or less 33%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 144000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1060 3GB 108432 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 35568 (33%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB is superior to the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1060 3GB 72288 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 72000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 288 (0%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
