Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1060M, Core i7-7700HQ 4-Core 2.8GHz, 16GB performance review

When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a Core i7-7700HQ 4-Core 2.8GHz CPU with a GeForce GTX 1060M GPU and 16GB RAM is more powerful than 322 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of Core i7-7700HQ 4-Core 2.8GHz. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 336 games at recommended requirement.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Battlefield 2042. In summary, a good way to look at the performance with this GeForce GTX 1060M is to consider, do you want 1080p gaming with ok graphics settings or would you be needing 1440p resolution with bottom end graphics settings. Take a look at the following results to help you choose. 1080p Medium 56 FPS, 1080p High setting: 50 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 40 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 55 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 43 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Forza Horizon 5 - In summary, we feel that the GeForce GTX 1060M looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Forza Horizon 5 experience it will generate 108 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 85 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 57 FPS when played at High settings and down to 41 FPS when turned up to Ultra on 1440p. You might still be looking for 1080p though to get some higher smoother FPS, where you could get 54 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.

3rd most popular game: Far Cry 6 - In summary, this GPU, GeForce GTX 1060M, is only suitable at running Far Cry 6 on a small screen size resolution. Probably best suited to small laptop screens. In terms of Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we recommend considering medium or high settings at best.
