Our Verdict: The price of GTX TITAN BLACK is ridiculous. Upgrading from GTX 1060 6GB to GTX TITAN BLACK is not recommended as it is less than 30% of improvement in performance. In general, a reasonable upgrade is between 30% and 50% or more to justify the purchase of new hardware. The price/performance ratio is much better for GTX 1060 6GB .

GTX 1060 6GB vs GTX TITAN BLACK with i7-6700K vs i7-4770K at 4K and ultra vs ultra settings

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 TITAN BLACK / i7-4770K

In terms of cost, pricing clearly is a genuine issue here and the price of GTX TITAN BLACK is simply ridiculous. At 1440p, GTX TITAN BLACK can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is worth noting that the GTX TITAN BLACK is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the GTX TITAN BLACK 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. This combination between GTX TITAN BLACK and Intel Core i7-4770K @ 3.50GHz has less than 8% bottleneck in many games and is perfect match to avoid FPS loss. This combination between GTX TITAN BLACK and Intel Core i7-4770K @ 3.50GHz is a perfect match to avoid FPS loss.
