I have a 1050ti laptop for $750, should I exchange it for a 1060 $1100 laptop?

The 1060 does not offer double the performance of a 1050ti, it's about 25%.



Gtx 1060 6gb is about 85% more powerful than a gtx 1050 ti and if the gtx 1060 would be the 3gb model, it is still about 75% more powerful in average user bench.


Apologies all, when I wrote that post I was comparing a 1060 to a 1070. Yes the 1060 is a lot more powerful than the 1050ti lol. My bad.


Average user bench tells that the gtx 1070 is something like 40% more powerful than the gtx 1060 6gb model.

I could use your help to better understand, if you look at my source here:
http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1070-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1060-6GB/3609vs3639

The real world FPS difference is around 25%.

Do the 'benchmark' scores really matter if it doesn't translate into FPS? The Benchmark score may be 40% but FPS only 25%?

Is there something that I'm missing?

I appreciate the help.

It means in an ideal situation the gtx 1060 can get that much more FPS but usually it cannot , usually bcuz of cpu bottleneck

Some difference can also scale at different resolutions/settings. The 1070 simply has more headroom in all aspects so that is why it can be up to 40% faster.

For example, my 1080 is not twice as powerful as 1060, but it does have "nearly" twice the potential performance. In practice, I won't necessarily get twice the framerate across all resolutions/settings, it will depend on what I am running at, as well as CPU bottlenecks etc. Maybe at 4K max settings I will be getting 80% higher fps, but at 1080p I will only get 45% more fps.
