[36 Gaming tests + videos] NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q – a great performer with just 60W TGP

When it comes to NVIDIA Max-Q video cards, most of the informed buyers know what to expect. They are essentially the same as their full-blown siblings but the reduced frequencies and the smaller TGP lead to lower heat dissipation which makes them suitable for thin and light laptops.

For example, today we are going to check what the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q is capable of and it can be found in compact gaming machines while the Max-P GPU sibling is fitted in bigger and heavier laptops (at least most in most cases).

Meanwhile, you can check out all available laptops with GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q here:

Verdict

As you can see, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q is a capable video card. Despite the fact that it’s an efficient GPU with lowered clocks, if your laptop is decently cooled, you can expect even more performance out of it. Speaking of efficiency, the performance of this graphics card is very good despite the fact that it has just 60W TGP.

Games like Far Cry New Dawn, Rise Of The Tomb Raider, or Battlefield V are not a problem for our Max-Q buddy. Lighter games like CS:GO or Dota 2 are just flying and if you play such titles, maybe a 144Hz display isn’t a bad idea.
