NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop)

The mobile Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 is a graphics card for high end laptops. It is based on the Pascal architecture and manufactured in 16 nm FinFET at TSMC. The GPU is using the smaller GP106 chip. Compared to the desktop version of the GTX 1060, the laptop version offers the same amount of shaders but slightly lower clock rates. The TDP is slightly less than the old GTX 970M (predecessor).

The performance of the mobile GTX 1060 is a few percent below a reference GTX 1060 desktop card. A comprehensive review of the dekstop GeForce GTX 1060 Founders Edition with 6 GB GDDR5 can be found here. Therefore, the card is most suited for Full HD or WQHD gaming in high to maximum details (see benchmarks below).

The power consumption should be around 80 Watt (TGP), later in 2017 a low power variant (Max-Q) is expected with reduced performance but a lower TGP of around 70 Watt.
