Our Verdict: Upgrading from GTX 1650 to GTX 1060 6GB 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.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650

The GTX 1660 might be the entry-level flagship of the latest Turing set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most budget PC gamers. On the other hand, the GTX 1650 is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 149. NVIDIA ’s xx50 cards have always been defined by budget prices with performance that knocks on the door of entry-level graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the Turing graphics card inside the GTX 1650, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

Spec for spec, this GTX 1650 leapfrogs its direct predecessor, the GTX 1050, by boasting 2 % more fps. The GTX 1650 has 4 GB RAM compared to the GTX 1050 's 3 GB video memory.

Fortunately, gaming performance was quite impressive. The GTX 1650 consistently delivers great frame rate increases over the GTX 1050, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and it really justifies an upgrade. For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Fallout 76, Battlefield V, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Resident Evil 2, Strange Brigade at 63 fps to 74 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 69 fps.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

The GTX 1070 might be the mid-range flagship of the latest Pascal set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most entry-level PC gamers. On the other hand, the GTX 1060 6GB is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 254. NVIDIA ’s xx60 cards have always been defined by entry-level prices with performance that knocks on the door of mid-range graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the Pascal graphics card inside the GTX 1060 6GB, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

The GTX 1060 6GB is much more expensive than the GTX 960 as it costs a whopping $ 254. Compare this to the GTX 960, which came originally at a price of $ 199. Meanwhile, the AMD closest equivalent card is the RX 580 which costs $ 229. Spec for spec, this GTX 1060 6GB leapfrogs its direct predecessor, the GTX 960, by boasting 2 % more fps.

The GTX 1060 6GB has 6 GB RAM compared to the GTX 960 's 2 GB video memory. In our synthetic benchmarks, the GTX 1060 6GB blows past the GTX 960 and, amazingly, even the GTX 970 as well.

Fortunately, gaming performance was quite impressive. The GTX 1060 6GB consistently delivers great frame rate increases over the GTX 960 and it really justifies an upgrade. For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Hitman 2, Apex Legends, F1 2019, World War Z, Battlefield V at 61 fps to 68 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 65 fps.
