GeForce GTX 1050 Ti vs GeForce GTX 1060 benchmarks

For gaming, the GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card is better than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti in our tests.

In our comparison, the GeForce GTX 1060 has a slightly higher core clock speed. This is the frequency at which the graphics core is running at. While not necessarily an indicator of overall performance, this metric can be useful when comparing two GPUs based on the same architecture.

Next up, in terms of GPU memory, the GeForce GTX 1060 has significantly more memory with 6 GiB of memory compared to 4 GiB. If you're planning at playing games at high resolutions with high-quality textures, you will need a lot of memory.

In addition, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti has a significantly lower TDP at 75 W when compared to the GeForce GTX 1060 at 120 W. This is not a measure of performance, but rather the amount of heat generated by the chip when running at its highest speed.

In terms of raw gaming performance in our GPU benchmark, the GeForce GTX 1060 is better than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.
