    Could you do these comparisons with drivers that are up to date for the Vega and 590 cards and not 6 month old ones?

    You do mention the Vega56 can be had from 270 and is much much faster so kudos for that.

    I fail to see any point in buying a GTX 1660 with such a big, OTT cooler.

    For the market of people who don't want to be able to hear the fans on their GPU.

    It takes a lot to get the fans turning on my Vega 56, I should imagine that 1660 can run passive most of the time in a decent sized case.

    The next quietest card, on the noise graph, is only half a decibel louder when gaming, not exactly noticeable and it only has two fans.
