Gaming Performance Comparison

Recommended System Requirements
Game GeForce GTX 1060 GeForce GTX 1080 Ti

In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060.

The GeForce GTX 1060 has a 26 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1080 Ti, but the GTX 1080 Ti has 144 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 1060. As a result, the GTX 1080 Ti exhibits a 211 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce GTX 1060. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GTX 1060 has a 26 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1080 Ti, but the GTX 1080 Ti has 40 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 1060. As a result, the GTX 1080 Ti exhibits a 57.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce GTX 1060. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 1080 Ti was released less than a year after the GeForce GTX 1060, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GTX 1080 Ti has 5120 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 1060, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1080 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1080 Ti has 292.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 1060, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is massively better than the GeForce GTX 1060.

The GeForce GTX 1060 has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has 3584. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1060 is 2953 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is 7654. The GTX 1080 Ti having 4701 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 1060.

The GeForce GTX 1060 requires 120 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti requires 220 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1060 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 1080 Ti. The GTX 1080 Ti requires 100 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 1060 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1080 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GTX 1060.
