No, that is usually due to different out of the box colour settings. AMD calibrates for more vibrancy. If AMD knew they had a superior solution in terms of colours, they would have exposed the situation by now, it's been years since this issue is brought up.

The way ppl fawn on nvidia, I doubt it would make one bit of difference if it was indeed the case that AMD had a superior solution.

And knowing how much AMD backers like to complain about the general public holding NVIDIA in higher esteem, if the color situation were ever proven to be a defect we'd never hear the end of it.

Different vibrancy with Digital interface? I thought they send 0x007F7F7F and LCD would convert it to correct colors.

The pricing of 1660Ti vs 1660 is very close each other this time.
I think the GTX 1660 Ti is a better buy as memory bandwidth gets utilized more. There's a few times where the GTX 1660 is only 10% faster than GTX 1060. These happen to be the titles where the GTX 1660 Ti is on par with Vega 56 due to the memory bandwidth and DCC (Delta color compression).

By increasing the GDDR5 memory speed by 22% this helped to boost frame rates by 11% in Apex Legends. Not bad considering how small the core overclock was. Clearly the GTX 1660 is memory limited and squeezing the most you can out of the GDDR5 is an easy way to boost frame rates.

It's a similar situation on GTA V , The Division 2 (DX12) , Shadow of the Tomb Raider (DX12) , Dirt Rally 2.0 and such

If it had 9Gbps GDDR5 it might have been better but in its current state it exists only to kill off RX 590 / RX 580 and GTX 1060 6GB and 3GB.

fwiw i've never seen the issue for years using vga/hdmi/dvi connections w/570,780,780ti,980ti. though i have always set color range to full in the NVCP for color banding in movies but never seen the "washed out" claims many have made.

but last night i connected to the DP port (first time ever for DP) and oh boy! until i set the NVCP to 32/8/RGB/full it looked like my cheap TN panel TV (via igpu hdmi) was the IPS screen. i have no idea why DP was so worse . .but it was. i had though it was more "user perception" until then.

again, never used DP and never saw it before and the NVCP settings corrected it, but it was shockingly bad.

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

I always wondered why didnt they use 10gbps GDDR5X. It wasnt long ago they have excessive GDDR5X inventory, Nvidia had to waste it on 1060 & underclock it, which do not actually benefit much.

It's one thing to have some "excessive" GDDR5X laying about that can be redirected to a card that's on the tail end of its lifespan and going EOL within a few months, it's another thing to commit to using GDDR5X on a new $219 GPU that will be sold by the hundreds of thousands if not millions over the next couple years.

The problem is just... Where is the competition for the 1660?

Lets hope the best for Navi.
