You're right. Gtx 1660ti max-q is the same as 1060. I'd say they are equal in performance.

How come this is a 3000 series name for the Ryzen? Isn't the 3rd generation Ryzen Zen 2 still an upcoming thing?
For Ryzen based APU, it is always -1 from the naming. For example Ryzen 3 2300G and Ryzen 5 2400G or Ryzen 5 2700U and Ryzen 5 2500U are not based on Zen+ architecture, they are based on the first generation Ryzen series with some more optimization in thermal design, CCX design Cache size.

It will have a hard time keeping up with a 1060 @ 60 watts. It will be interesting to see the benchmarks on it. My guess is it will underperform the GTX 1060/8750h models you can get on sale now at a cheaper price. Especially in the CPU department.

Nvidia strikes again at the consumer with this trash TDP. This will be between a 1050ti and 1060. What are they doing?!

I am not sure but most of the Benchmarks suggest the Max-Q version of the 1660 Ti is around 11% slower than the standard version. Doesn't it mean that even the Max-Q version performs better than GTX 1060?

They screwed up on the naming of their mobile APUs. 3000 series = Zen1+ architecture.

Anyway, I bought msi gs65 with rtx2060 for 1400$ and quite happy. The only issue is 16gb one stick in single channel. Can I add 8gb to it to get dual channel? I found ram that the same model, brand, speed but 8gb. I don't need 32gb in total. Just to get dual channel Smilie

Its all in the wattage that they will allow the GPU to pull. From the article I posted it was 60 watts on this model and 35 watts for the quad core CPU. I have a hard time believing it will outperform a 80-90 watt GTX 1060.

The article you link shows the 1660TI running at 1800mhz +. This system is limited to around 1300:

Asus brings forth some of the cooling improvements we've seen in other ROG launches today to the GA502 including multiple heat pipes, self-cleaning mechanism, and thin-blade yet high density fans. The GTX 1660 Ti can boost up to 1335 MHz at 60 W when the Turbo mode is enabled. The extra speed boost should help in better utilization of the 120 Hz display for smoother gameplay.

And from where you get that information apart from your speculation? Do yourself a favor and read first before commenting. Below is the link of the GTX 1660 Ti Benchmark which makes it faster than GTX 1070 Laptop. The RTX version is just 11% slower than the standard version and still better than GTX 1060.

It actually ties with RTX 2060 in 3Dmark.
No it doesn't.

The distinction here isn't that it's an RTX card (it's still a GTX), it's that it's a max-q card. If you can link a bench of the 1660 ti max-q compared to other cards (if it's available yet), your argument would make more sense. I have a hard time believing that this is anywhere close to a 2060 considering that what the 1660 ti (non-max-q) gains over a 1060 (non-max-q) is ~30%, which is pretty much a wash for what you lose with max-q technology.

But the manufacturing process is more mature 12nm in all the Turning and performance per watt should be approximately 40% better compared to pascal.
My point is that just by using TDP value, two different generation cards' performance can be compared directly. the 80W version of GTX 1660 Ti has same TDP as the GTX 1070 but still performs good amount better than it which is anyway, way over the full version of GTX 1060. As per the tests, even the MAX-Q version of GTX 1660 Ti performs 11% slower, it should be still over the full version of GTX 1060.
