GTX 1060 6GB vs GTX 1650 vs GTX 970 at 1080p performance

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB / i7-6700K

At 1440p, GTX 1060 6GB can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is clear that the GTX 1060 6GB is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for GTX 1060 6GB against the competition in budget mid-range cards. In terms of memory, the GTX 1060 6GB 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 / i7-8700K

For the most part, the GTX 1650 is still capable of playing modern games, but you would have to reduce settings to sustain those higher framerates. If keeping graphics quality settings closer to ultra or high is important, there are a few options for upgrades. The price/performance ratio is excellent for GTX 1650 against the competition in budget graphics cards. The price/performance ratio is excellent for GTX 1650 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. The GTX 1650 's power requirements are reasonable and it is very efficient compared to the competition. With regards to max load temperature, the GTX 1650 's cooling is excellent at keeping it cool and under control. With current 4096 MB RAM, the GTX 1650 can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 / i7-4770K

At 1440p, GTX 970 can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is clear that the GTX 970 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. With regards to max load temperature, the GTX 970 's cooling is excellent at keeping it cool and under control.
