With the RX 5300M winning most of our GPU comparisons, it’s time we up the challenge a little, or maybe a lot. That is why for today we have the RX 5300M go up against the GTX 1660 Ti, which should provide an amazing opportunity for the RX 5300M to sweat it up and actually have to put some effort towards winning these comparisons.
The GTX 1660 Ti absolutely outperformed the RX 5300M, regardless of the benchmark, or even the game. In 3DMark Fire Strike it was 41% faster. In Unigine Heaven 4.0, the NVIDIA GPU showed 74% better performance. For the last benchmark, which is Unigine Superposition, the GTX 1660 Ti scored 62% higher. The same story followed in the gaming tests, with the GTX 1660 Ti being on average 29%, 34%, 25%, and 42% better in FarCry 5, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, respectively.
Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)
It was about time that the RX 5300M suffered its first major loss. The GTX 1660 Ti completely dominated it, regardless of what benchmark or game we decided to put both of them through. The performance gains were quite large, with some of them nearing or even excelling 50%. The GTX 1660 Ti is still a beast in the mid-range market, and it should never be underestimated.
