GTX 1060 Max-Q with i7-6700K 1080p, 1440p, 4K benchmarks at Ultra Quality

In terms of cost, pricing clearly is a genuine issue here and the price of GTX 1060 Max-Q is simply ridiculous. For the most part, the GTX 1060 Max-Q 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. In terms of memory, the GTX 1060 Max-Q 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks.
