The Nvidia GTX 1060 3gb mobile version is a top-midrange GPU, based on the Nvidia Pascal architecture and the GP106 core. The GTX 1060 3gb could be found in gaming laptops for as low as $750 with a typical price of $900-$1000 and has a very high cost efficiency which makes it an easy recommendation for gaming/3D purposes, especially for 1080p gaming, for which it delivers very high FPSs almost all across the board.

As 2018 progressed, the GTX 1060 3GB offerings have dwindled, perhaps because they are too strong of a rival for the GTX 1060 6GB and GTX 1060MQ offerings.

The GTX 1060 GPUs family also includes the GTX 1060 Max-Q (6GB) and GTX 1060 6GB versions. The GTX 1060 MQ is the slowest usually due to being more TDP limited (and less hot) and aimed towards cheaper gaming laptops like the Dell 7577 or G3 3579 that can sometimes be found for as low as $650-$700. The 6GB variant is the same chip like the GTX 1060 3GB except it has more VRAM which makes it a little more suitable for scenarios that require it. This is unlike the desktop version in which the 3GB version has lower cores count, beyond having less VRAM.

Compared to previous generation GTX 970M, the GTX 1060 3gb delivers around 50-60% higher gaming performance in 3D demanding games, on average, for the same roughly the same power consumption.

The Pascal based GPUs, including the GTX 1060 3/6GB/MQ are about to be replaced with next generation Nvidia GPUs, starting at the end of 2018. I would suggest waiting until then, unless it can be bought for a significantly low price.
