Questions and Answers

  • Question: Should i upgrade my gtx 780 to a gtx 1060. i am looking at a new gpu anyway and dont really want to spend anything more than the cost of a gtx 1060

    Answer: Well, it would be about 30% faster roughly with the 6GB version. The 3GB version probably wouldn't be worth it.

    You would mostly be gaining memory bandwidth, memory size, and all the architectural improvements.

    Ideally you should go for a 1070 to see a significant performance increase.

  • Question: I just bought a second hand computer and I'm planning to exchange the 2 GPUs EVGA 780 GTX SC 3GB it has in SLI for a single Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 AMP! Edition 6GB GDDR5. The goal is to achieve similar performance with less power consumption. CPU is a 2013 i7 4770k, RAM is a HyperX Savage DDR3 2400 16GB kit and motherboard an ASUS Maximus VI Extreme. Will it perform better or worse? Is it a good idea to buy the 1060 and remove the two 780?

    Answer: Yes a 1070.

  • Question: So I want to get a 1060 for a completely updated gaming rig (1080p), but I've read the comparisons of the 780 Ti and MSI 1060 and it seems like the 780 Ti is at the same, or even slightly better at performance than the 1060. Is this actually true, and should I keep the 780 to save money, or is there some other factor like updated hardware and things of the sort that would give the 1060 some sort of performance edge over the 780 Ti? I'll place some benching results from GPUBoss and UserBenchmark:

    http://gpuboss.com/gpus/GeForce-GTX-780-Ti-vs-GeForce-GTX-1060

    Thanks for the help in advance :).

    Answer: If you already have a 780 ti, its not a huge upgrade.

    I had a regular 780 and upgraded to the 1060 and it was a good upgrade.

  • Question: Hey guys,

    I'm in a situation where I can essentially swap out a 780 TI 3GB to a 1060 3GB at no cost if I sell the 780 TI. I know the 1060 is a gimped version of the 6GB card, but when comparing to a 780 TI 3GB would this be a good upgrade?

    I remember reading somewhere that a GTX 1060 should be equal to a GTX 980. The 780 TI being lower than a GTX 980 probably means it's a good upgrade especially when considering the lower power requirements.

    The only thing is, benchmarks and performance for the GTX 1060 3GB mini versions are very hard to find. Especially those comparing it to a 780 TI in real world frame rates.

    Does anyone have these cards and put them through their benchmarks? Or know of some articles showing which is better?

    Thanks.

    Answer: https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_1060/26.html
    780 ti offers ~ 85% of the performance of a 1060 6GB. Given the reduced performance of the 3GB version, it probably won't give more than a 10% performance boost. Not worth it in my opinion, unless you're getting the 1060 for a really good deal or a trade for your 780 ti.

    Edit: oops, didn't read the OP well enough. If you can exchange your 780 Ti for a 1060 at no cost, that's a good deal.

  • Question: Hi, so the deal is plain and simple: gtx 780 ti vs 1060, paired with a 550w psu and an i5 8400. Which one and why?

    Answer: 1060 imo because in some games it slightly edges out the 780ti, and uses less power and is bit more efficient.
