Ashes of the Singularity

Planet by planet, a war is raging across the galaxy. The technological singularity has given humanity the power to expand further than they ever have before. Now, they compete with each other and their sentient artificial intelligence adversaries for control of newfound worlds.

ASUS’s ROG Strix GTX 1660Ti OC provides very playable frame rates in Ashes of the Singularity, easily passing the 60 FPS mark in 1080p and still holding on to playable frame rates at 1440p and even 4K.

For a more affordable card, it sits exactly where it should on the charts and provides a good experience in game without requiring a 2nd mortgage.


Far Cry 5

Anything can happen. Everything will.

Welcome to Hope County, Montana, land of the free and the brave, but also home to a fanatical doomsday cult—known as The Project at Eden’s Gate—that is threatening the community’s freedom. Stand up to the cult’s leaders, Joseph Seed, and the Heralds, as you spark the fires of resistance that will liberate the besieged community.

Far Cry 5 shows awesome performance, even up at the 1440p level with the Strix 1660Ti holding the minimums above 60 fps at max settings. You could even do 4K with the eye candy preset lowered a notch or two.

We again see the 1660Ti trailing the RTX 2060 only by a small amount.


Middle-Earth: Shadow of War
In the epic sequel to the award-winning Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, go behind enemy lines to forge an army, conquer Fortresses and dominate Mordor from within. Experience how the award-winning Nemesis System creates unique personal stories with every enemy and follower, and confront the full power of the Dark Lord Sauron and his Ringwraiths in this epic new story of Middle-earth.

In Shadow of War, the Strix 1660Ti narrowly misses averaging 60 FPS at 1440p. 4K still stays above the 30 FPS mark which makes it playable.

The Strix GTX 1660Ti slides into the charts right under the bigger RTX 2060 cards.


Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Experience Lara Croft’s defining moment as she becomes the Tomb Raider. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. As she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse, Lara will ultimately be forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.

The latest installment in the Tomb Raider franchise runs quite well at max settings and the Strix 1660Ti is able to swing 1440p quite easily.

Again we see predictable results.


Tom Clancy’s The Division
We live in a complex world. The more advanced it gets, the more vulnerable it becomes. We’ve created a house of cards: remove just one, and everything falls apart.

Black Friday – a devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City, and one by one, basic services fail. In only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, an autonomous unit of tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, these agents are trained to operate independently in order to save society.

When society falls, we rise.

The Division is easily playable at max settings at 1080p and does a great job holding decent frame rates even at 1440p.

The Strix GTX 1660Ti actually comes in just a little under the RTX2070 cards in The Division.
