GTX 1060 6GB (laptop) vs GTX 1060 Max-Q performance comparison

Jump to Benchmarks
GTX 1060 6GB (laptop) is
~21% fasterx0.8-x0.98 as cost effective in our tests; typical prices

The GTX 1060 6GB (laptop) is based on the Nvidia Pascal architecture same as the GTX 1060 Max-Q. According to the raw specs of the two GPUs, we see that the GTX 1060 6GB (laptop) has around x1.13 the maximal TFLOPS compute power and 0% higher memory bandwidth compared to GTX 1060 Max-Q. Based on the current tests, the TFLOPS advantage potential is not fullfilled in real gaming benchmarks. In some benchmarks, the performance of GTX 1060 6GB (laptop) exceeds significantly the rough projected performance of GTX 1060 Max-Q. Since the basic specifications are the same, but GP106s’ TGP is lower, then it could be the cause of this performance difference.
