Hello,

I had the opportunity to play Escape From Tarkov on GTX 1080 for a week and I was getting stable 90 FPS on 1440p resolution.
That card was sold and now I have a 6600 which is supposed to be a bit better than 1080. Its a fresh windows install for 6600 but my FPS is nowhere near the 1080 it frequently dips into the 50 fps and averages around 70 fps.
I did a DDU uninstall just in case and removed everything from NVIDIA, didn't change anything.

What could be the problem?

And which GTX 1080, there were two versions. One with 10,000MT/s memory and one with 11,000MT/s memory. Not too mention the wild difference between the reference clock speeds and what some of the custom A cards could do.

Still, in terms of memory bandwidth, the 1080 has more by a wide margin. Any game that uses a lot of VRAM is likely going to be faster on the 1080.

It is this one: Specification GeForce GTX 1080 GAMING X 8G | MSI Global - The Leading Brand in High-end Gaming & Professional Creation
And the 6600 is this one: PULSE AMD Radeon RX 6600 (sapphiretech.com)
 
that looks like downgrade to me tbh, gaming x has pcb from 1080ti, it pretty highly overclocked, while pulse has low end pcb with barely any overclock

i do have 1070ti from msi (armor), but its using vbios from gaming x, pcb is same, just armor got crappier cooling, but its watercooled, so no issues, it beats GTX 1080 on userbenchmark (not in games obviously xD)

well anyway, post screenshot from gpu-z and run some benchmarks

6600 is definitely slower than the 1080, even the cut down 1070 Ti in my laptop (Quadro P4200) edges out the 6600 in most cases. I'd just return the 6600 if you can. Not to be disparaging but some Tom's reviews are very misleading at times.
