The Nvidia GTX 1060 MQ mobile version is a mid-midrange GPU, based on the Nvidia Pascal architecture and the GP106 core. The GTX 1060 MQ can be found in gaming laptops for as low as $650-$700 from time to time with a typical price of $750-$900 with a relatively high cost efficiency which makes it an easy recommendation for gaming/3D purposes over lower propositions like GTX 1050 Ti laptops that are available for these prices too.

The GTX 1060 GPUs family also includes the GTX 1060 3GB and GTX 1060 6GB versions which are the same except the VRAM amount. Both are faster than the GTX 1060 MQ for gaming purposes and are the preferable choice given the price is close enough.

  • GTX 1060 6GB (laptop)
  • GTX 1060 Max-Q
  • GTX 1050 Ti (laptop)
  • GTX 970M
{"labels":["Deus Ex : Mankind Divided, Medium @1080p","Metro : Last Light, Very high @1080p","Thief, Highest @1080p"],"series":[["58.000","82.000","81.000"],["49.000","60.000","73.000"],["38.000","55.000","58.000"],[null,"55.000","54.000"]],"chart_gpus":[142786,147198,145517,136055]}

Compared to previous generation GTX 970M, the GTX 1060 MQ delivers around 20-25% 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.
