Gaming Performance Comparison

Recommended System Requirements
Game GeForce GTX 1060 3GB 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 3GB.

The GTX 1060 has a 26 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1080 Ti, but the GTX 1080 Ti has 152 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1060. As a result, the GTX 1080 Ti exhibits a 223.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the 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 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 GTX 1060. As a result, the GTX 1080 Ti exhibits a 57.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the 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 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 8192 MB more video memory than the 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 GTX 1060, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is massively better than the GTX 1060.

The GeForce GTX 1060 3GB has 1152 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has 3584. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1060 is 1969 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is 7654. The GTX 1080 Ti having 5685 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 GTX 1060.

The GeForce GTX 1060 3GB 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 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 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 GTX 1060.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1060 3GB is currently the entry level Nvidia GTX 1000 performance graphics card, based on the Pascal Architecture. It comes with locked memory of 3GB instead of the full 6GB.

Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed P106-300-A1 which is a first gen Pascal GPU and has 9 SM activated, offering 1152 Shader Processing Units (the GTX 1060 6GB version offers 1280 SPU), 72 TMUs and 48 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1506MHz and goes up to 1708MHz, when Boost mode is activated.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 3GB frame buffer of GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2002MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
The Geforce GTX 1060 3GB is capable of playing most modern game system requirements at high graphics settings. The 3GB version is normally around 5% worse than the GTX 1060 6GB full fat version in terms of sheer processing power. But its the 3GB memory reduction that will hamper the high quality game textures this card can deliver, making it less future proof as more GPU memory hungry games are released.
Overview
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is the top 1000 Series graphics card and considered an Enthusiast graphics card based on the Pascal architecture.

Architecture
The Pascal architecture aims for twice as much Performance as the Maxwell Architecture and introduces support for second gen HBM.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed P102-300-A1 which has 3584 Shader Processing Units, 224 TMUs and 88 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1480MHz and goes up to 1584MHz, in Boost mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 11.2GB frame buffer of second gen GDDR5X memory, through a 352-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1376MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 220W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with 2 power connectors, a 6-pin and an 8-pin connector.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
