Is the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti good for 4K gaming?

Best answer: The GTX 1660 Ti is not good enough to play games at 4K. For that, you'll need to spend a fair amount of funds and grab an RTX 2080 GPU.Best GPU for 4K gaming: EVGA RTX 2080 (opens in new tab) ($800 at Amazon)

GTX 1660 Ti is not powerful enough for 4K

NVIDIA's latest GeForce 20 series of GPUs are powerful cards, allowing gamers to enjoy better-looking games at somewhat budget-friendly pricing. The GTX 1660 Ti may have some of the features found in newer RTX cards, but it's still in between the GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 in terms of raw performance, making it unsuitable for 4K gaming.

To enjoy games at 4K resolution, you'll want to spend the big bucks and look at the RTX 2080 or RTX 2080 Ti. The latter would allow for smoother 4K gaming but does so at a considerably higher price. The RTX 2080 is a great middle ground between affordability and enthusiast performance when it comes to 4K. Saving money and choosing the RTX 2070 could handle gaming at 4K but it wouldn't be stable.

GTX 1080 GPUs are coming down in price with the launch of GeForce 20 series cards like the RTX 2080, but you'll still want to go with the latest technologies if your budget can stretch it. For more options, have a look at our best graphics card picks.
