In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 MSI OC 3GB.

The GTX 1060 has a 329 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 2070, but the RTX 2070 has 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1060. As a result, the RTX 2070 exhibits a 63.8 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 329 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 2070, but the RTX 2070 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1060. As a result, the RTX 2070 exhibits a 3.7 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 RTX 2070 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 1060, and so the RTX 2070 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 1060.

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 RTX 2070 has 5120 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 RTX 2070 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RTX 2070 has 255.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1060, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2070 is massively better than the GTX 1060.

The GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI OC 3GB has 1152. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 2070 is 3318 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1060 is 2026. The RTX 2070 having 1292 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 2070 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1060.

The RTX 2070 transistor size technology is 4 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1060. This means that the RTX 2070 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1060.

The GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile requires 115 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI OC 3GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1060, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the RTX 2070. The GTX 1060 requires 5 Watts more than the RTX 2070 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 1060 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the RTX 2070.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile card is a high-end RTX 20 Series graphics card for laptops and considered an enthusiast graphics card based on the Turing GPU architecture. Architecture It equips a Turing GPU Codenamed TU106 which is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 36 SM activated, offering 2304 Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It also has 288 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU The TU106 GPU used in the GeForce RTX 2070 Mobility is clocked lower than the desktop variant, caused decreased performances. The standard model has a base clock speed of 1215 MHz and a boost clock speed of 1440 MHz. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1500MHz. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 80-115W the RTX 2070 Mobile is fairly power hungry and will significantly reduce laptop battery life at full load. System Suggestions GeForce GRTX 2070 Mobile is capable of resolutions all the way up to 3840x2160 but is best suited for 1440p displays. We recommend a high-end processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.Overview
The GeForce GTX 1060 MSI OC 3GB is an Overclocked variant of the GeForce GTX 1060 which 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 1544MHz and goes up to 1759MHz, 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 MSI OC 3GB is a high performance graphics card that can run triple AAA games from 2016 at 1080p on very high graphic settings and delivering 60+ frames per second. At a screen resolution at 1440p is will run these same games on high/medium at 60 fps. The 3GB memory reduction that will hamper the high quality game textures that this card can deliver, making it less future proof as more GPU memory hungry games are released. This is a small form card that will be perfect for those wanting to conserve space inside their build.
