NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop) vs NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (Desktop) vs NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (Desktop)

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop)

► remove 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).

For thin and light laptops Nvidia offer a Max-Q called version of the GTX 1060 with lower TDP and also significantly lower performance. Sadly this variant im sold with the same GTX 1060 name, making it hard to judge the performance.

The performance of the mobile GTX 1060 is a few percent below a reference GTX 1060 desktop card. In our benchmark so far (no max-Q version) the mobile GTX 1060 was somewhere between -1 and -16% slower than a desktop variant. 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 GP106 chip is produced in 16nm FinFET at TSMC and offers a range of new features, like DisplayPort 1.4 (ready), HDMI 2.0b, HDR, Simultaneous Multi-Projection (SMP) and improved H.265 video de- and encoding (PlayReady 3.0). A list of improvements and features can be found in our article on the Pascal architecture.

The power consumption is specified with a TGP of 80 Watt and therefore slightly below the old GTX 970M. Since summer 2017 a low power variant (Max-Q) is available for thin and light laptops with reduced performance and a lower TGP of 60 - 70 Watt.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (Desktop)

Die Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 ist nach dem Topmodell Titan X die zweitschnellste Pascal-Grafikkarte für Desktop-PCs und wurde im Mai 2016 vorgestellt. Die GPU verfügt über die vollen 2.560 Shadereinheiten des zugrundeliegenden GP104-Chips sowie 8 GB GDDR5X-Speicher an einem 256-Bit-Interface (10 GHz, 320 GB/s).

Features

Der GP104-Chip wird in einem 16nm-FinFET-Prozess bei TSMC gefertigt und bietet eine Reihe neuer Features, unter anderem Support für DisplayPort 1.4 (ready), HDMI 2.0b, HDR, Simultaneous Multi-Projection (SMP) sowie verbessertes H.265 Video De- und Encoding (PlayReady 3.0). Eine genaue Auflistung der Verbesserungen und Features der neuen Pascal Desktop-GPUs finden Sie in unserem Pascal-Architektur-Artikel.

Performance

Die Performance der GeForce GTX 1080 liegt etwa 65 Prozent über dem Vorgänger GTX 980 sowie 30 Prozent oberhalb der GTX 980 TI und Titan X (Maxwell). Damit ordnet sich die GTX 1080 im absoluten High-End-Segment ein und kann die meisten Spiele des Jahres 2016 in hohen Einstellungen und 4K-Auflösung flüssig darstellen.

Leistungsaufnahme

Die Leistungsaufnahme der GeForce GTX 1080 wird vom Hersteller mit 180 Watt beziffert und liegt damit nur leicht über dem Vorgänger GTX 980 (165 Watt).

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (Desktop)

► remove

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (N17P-G1) for desktops is an entry level gaming graphics card that was announced late 2016. It is based on the GP107 chip using the Pascal architecture and manufactured in 14nm FinFET at Samsung (the bigger Pascal chips are manufactured in 16nm at TSMC). Usually it is equipped with 4 GB GDDR5 memory with a 7 Gbps data rate. The mobile GTX 1050 Ti version should be announced later (beginning of 2017) and feature similar specs.

The performance of the GTX 1050 lies between the Radeon RX 460 and the RX 470 on a similar level of the old GeForce GTX 960 (or 970M). Therefore, the card is most suited for 1080p gaming at high detail settings (but not maximum settings).

See our extensive review of the MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti for more information on power consumption, benchmarks and noise level.
