3DMark Fire Strike is a showcase DirectX 11 benchmark designed for today’s high-performance gaming PCs. It is our [FutureMark’s] most ambitious and technical benchmark ever, featuring real-time graphics rendered with detail and complexity far beyond what is found in other benchmarks and games today.
It’s a bit of an ‘up and down’ start for the MSI GTX 1660 Ti in our 3DMark benchmarks. It’s roughly on par with the RX 590 in the Fire Strike test, before outperforming GTX 1070 in Time Spy. In the 4K Fire Strike Ultra test, however, it falls behind even the RX 580.
