Nvidia 1060 Max-Q vs 1060 - Laptop Graphics Comparison Benchmarks

1437 ratings | 128442 views
In this video I’ll compare the performance difference between two laptops running an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 and 1060 with Max-Q design. The 1060 with Max-Q is clocked slightly slower in order for it to run cooler and quieter, but how does this affect gaming performance? Although the regular 1060 is more powerful, how much better is it, and is it worth paying extra for in a laptop? I’ll perform some gaming benchmarks and see how well each graphics card does in a series of tests to help you choose between the 1060 with Max-Q or 1060 for your next laptop. In this test we’ll be benchmarking the following games: PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) Rise of the Tomb Raider Watch Dogs 2 The Witcher 3 Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Shadow of War Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation Check out my other benchmark videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLFBbwFM8jIbOTCvEC_s_R99iKCxZd2poF Shopping for a laptop with an Nvidia 1060?

Regular 1060 then undervolt and repaste the GPU to get the same benefit of MaxQ but with higher clock speed. 😁. Stable undervolt will result to lower temps and sustained boost clock speeds.
Jarrod'sTech (8 days ago)
I've never found undervolting the GPU to make much difference myself, at least compared to just overckocking it. I still suspect the 1060 will come out ahead though, when I test overclocking if the max-q one (I do that in the full reviews of the Dell G3/5/7) it doesn't get that much of a boost
Brandon Bridges (12 days ago)
Interestingly my laptop with a 1060 Max-Q got 9091 on firestrike, whereas your Max-Q result was only 8,386. Your 1060 scored 9,160, yet when I overclocked my 1060 Max-Q by 200 mhz with MSI Afterburner I pushed its score from 9091 to 9520.
Jarrod'sTech (12 days ago)
Hmm, don't suppose you have a newer laptop with 8th gen CPU? These tests were done with the i7-7700HQ, so that could make up the difference if you have an i5-8300H/i7-8750H. I probably should have provided graphics only scores.
Jackt 220 (24 days ago)
There really isnt much of a difference hahahahha
Jarrod'sTech (23 days ago)
Yeah not really, if I was playing the same game on both laptops I probably couldn't tell you which was which.
Nick K (28 days ago)
Thank you for the videos your making. I have a suggestion though. I noticed that in some of your videos you dont reference which products do you use which would be a very informative point for us the consumers and viewers. So just a little suggestion to write in your video description at least which laptops do you use on your testings. I figured out that the one was the Dell G5 but for the MSI i didnt realise yet. Thanks a lot !
Nick K (28 days ago)
+Jarrod'sTech i know and your absolutely right. Its just for educational reasons only. You know just at the description below your video you could write at the very end for example " the following models have been used.... " something like that. Thanks Jarrod for your reply
Jarrod'sTech (28 days ago)
Yeah I don't bother mentioning in comparisons like this, because the idea is that it doesn't matter. The point is to compare the 1060 and 1060 Max-Q graphics, regardless of the laptops. I do mention it some times briefly at the start though so I'll try to remember to quickly do it at the start along with the specs.
waleed afandi (29 days ago)
Looking at the numbers, 1060 is clearly ahead of max q varient, but would you be able them apart if you're gaming without looking at fps? P. S love your videos <3
Jarrod'sTech (29 days ago)
Probably not😛 thanks!

Hey, thanks for the great video ! I want to buy new laptop for gaming and I'm not sure which one is better, what are your experiences with those laptops ? Which one do you think is the best and why ? Thanks for your answer.

+Jarrod'sTech Thanks for your answer. I'm stuck between two laptops now. First is : ASUS ROG STRIX GL502VS-FY247T Intel Core i7 7700HQ Kaby Lake 15.6" RAM 16GB DDR4 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB GDDR5 SSD 256GB + HDD 1TB 7200 rpm + this one is 100 euro cheaper . Second : MSI GP73 8RE-444 Intel Core i7 8750H Coffee lake 17.3" 120Hz RAM 16GB DDR4 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5 M.2 SSD 128GB + HDD 1TB 7200 rpm What do you think is better ? i7700+GTX 1070 or i8750h+GTX 1060 ? Game requirements are raising, so would you choose for gaming the better CPU or GPU ? Let's say we're in 2021 and I would like to play some new game, which laptop would run the game better ? Thank you very much, have a nice day!
Jarrod'sTech (1 month ago)
Thanks! I haven't tested any HP stuff so straight away I can't really talk about that, however based on the specs the others would be better with the newer 8750H CPU. I'm working on a video right now actually comparing the 7700HQ and 8750H CPUs, so look out for that one - but basically on average I was seeing more than a 10% boost in games with the 8750H, and even higher outside of gaming where multiple cores are actually better utilized. That said the 7700HQ is still a great option, especially if it's a good price. As for the rest I can't personally recommend the FX504, I have a full review on the channel and I had some pretty serious power limit throttling on it which reduced performance, the Dell G5 would be preferable despite it having the Max-Q graphics. In terms of raw specs though the Nitro 5 would win, I've heard good things about it but haven't had the chance to test it myself. I do actually have a Nitro 5 at home waiting for me to review, but I got the AMD/Radeon configuration rather than Intel/Nvidia, so the review of that when it comes probably won't help you out. I think all those companies you listed are pretty good, but that said I haven't used any of them long term so can't comment on durability over time unfortunately.
TY, man. I am buy with Nvidia 1060 Max-Q 100% !
Jarrod'sTech (1 month ago)
Nice one 😁
+Jarrod'sTech just pre-order Dell g317 7671 with 1060 max-q =)
Jarrod'sTech (1 month ago)
No problem! Cool, hope you like it 👍
Abhijeet D (1 month ago)
which laptop should i prefer for gaming between these two:- Dell G7 7588 with i9-8950HK (Max-Q GTX 1060 6 GB) Vs. Lenovo legion Y720 with i7-7700HQ(GTX 1060 6 GB)
Abhijeet D (1 month ago)
lenovo & dell laptops are good for gaming but the screen displays in both are worse....i recently changed my lenovo's TN glossy display panel to IPS panel...hp omen 2018 gaming laptops offers much better specs than dell & lenovo in the same price category, i hope they perform good enough for gaming.
Jarrod'sTech (1 month ago)
I think with the G7 you could definitely save money getting the i7 model, as I cover in my review of it the i9 doesn't perform too much better due to power limit throttling. Not sure about the Lenovo laptops myself as I've never had any for testing, but I have heard some good things about them.
Abhijeet D (1 month ago)
1070 will definitely cost me a little extra but the seller options are very less in my country(india). i read other reviews on G7 i9 that it is not best pick for gaming. lenovo legion y720 was in my top priority list but i would probably wait till next year for any new laptop launch in CES 2019.
Jarrod'sTech (1 month ago)
I mean if you can afford it 1070 should definitely give you better longevity than either of those options and would be the recommended option if viable.
Abhijeet D (1 month ago)
so based on graphics, gameplay performance doesn't matter as seen in this benchmark fps video....i would probably not be looking for any upgrade till next 4-5 years....or shall i go with laptop with 1070 graphics?
Richard Brian Dee (1 month ago)
Hi all, I'm planning to buy a laptop for 3D rendering purposes. I want to know your opinion on getting a 1060 with Max Q or not? There's a 200 dollar difference between the laptops so I'm wondering if the price difference worth it? Also if you could recommend a laptop best for 3D render? Thank you so much in advance for the help.
Richard Brian Dee (1 month ago)
+Jarrod'sTech thanks a lot for your inputs. I guess Asus is a clear winner. But I'm confused now as to which model is better. FX505GM-ES055T or GL504GM-ES052T. I think both have the same specs? But different model series. What's the difference? Thank you!
Jarrod'sTech (1 month ago)
Given the specs are basically the same on all laptops (8750H/1060) you'd want to look at other things such as design/weight/battery life, most of those are personal preferences though so I can't really say. I also haven't tested half of them so not sure how they compare in terms of thermal performance. Based on what I have tested I'd probably stay away from the G7 as the screen isn't as good as the ASUS models (especially GL504), and the Max-Q 1060 is about 10% slower than the regular 1060. To me the GL504GM sounds the best based on those specs, lightest, good specs, and I've tested the GL504GS version with 1070 (videos coming soon) and think it's pretty decent, though it does cost more as a result.
Richard Brian Dee (1 month ago)
+Jarrod'sTech thank you for your quick response.. my laptop choices are the following: 1. Alienware 15 - usd1810 - i7 8750H - 16gb 2400mhz - 256SSD + 1TB HDD - Nvidia 1060 OC 6gb gddr5 - 3.5kg 2. Dell G7 15 7588 - usd1857 - i7 8750H - 16gb 2666mhz - 256SSD + 1TB HDD - Nvidia 1060 with Max Q 6gb gddr5 - 2.86kg - 1yr warranty 3. Asus FX504GM-EN019T - usd1670 - i7 8750H - 8gb 2666mhz (then I'll just buy another 8gb) - 128SSD + 1TB HDD - Nvidia 1060 6gb gddr5 - 2.3kg - 2yrs warranty 4. Asus GL504GM-ES052T - usd1950 - i7 8750H - 16gb 2666mhz - 128SSD + 1TB HDD - Nvidia 1060 6gb gddr5 - 2.3kg - 2yrs warranty 5. Acer PH315-51-766p - usd1580 - i7 8750H - 8gb 2666mhz - 1TB HDD - Nvidia 1060 6gb gddr5 - 2.7kg - 2yrs warranty I'm looking for a laptop that I could use for a couple of years. The main use of the laptop would be 3D/2D render (SketchUp, Photoshop, etc). So sorry about the inconvenience this may cause. But I hope you could give clarity. More or less the specs are the same, maybe you could share some info about the brands as well? Thank you so much!
Jarrod'sTech (1 month ago)
I probably wouldn't bother myself, in games at least (not sure how this translates into performance of the apps you plan on using, check that) the non Max-Q is only 10% better, to me at least that isn't worth $200, though depends on the price of the laptop - if the laptop is already over $2000, then a 10% increase of $200 for 10% performance boost seems decent, but in a $1000 laptop then it's a 20% increase for 10% gain.
Javen (1 month ago)
What is max q?
Javen (1 month ago)
+Jarrod'sTech Not sure if i should sacrifice gpu speed for better cpu or not..
Jarrod'sTech (1 month ago)
R6 runs quite well on basically anything, 1070Ti should give you excellent performance in most games too. For video editing the graphics doesn't matter too much in the editing process, can speed up exporting a little though with CUDA acceleration, though the CPU still matters more. More cores are generally better for video editing.
Javen (1 month ago)
+Jarrod'sTech r6s mostly but i edit 4k videos often im planning to get a 1070ti and a i7 8something k not sure if it can handle
Jarrod'sTech (1 month ago)
I guess depends more on whether you need to take it anywhere with you, if so definitely laptop, but if not you can get more performance for the same $ with a desktop. Water cooling is definitely not needed, you can run really good hardware on air these days, water only needed usually if you want to overclocking, but even then you can still overclock most stuff fairly well on air, it's basically for the 1%. What sort of games do you plan on playing and what setting levels/resolution?
Javen (1 month ago)
+Jarrod'sTech im kinda new i wanna get a desktop/laptop which should i get? is custom watercooling needed?

Benchmark and stress-test please razer 15 2018 1060 maxq vs 1070 maxq, please.
Jarrod'sTech (2 months ago)
To be honest I probably won't get the 1060 version as they've already sent me the 1070, generally companies just want me to do the review rather than all these comparisons which I do as extras because I know they are important.
Retrocidal (2 months ago)
Wow cool way less of a difference then I was told it would be 15 to 30% difference the video I was looking thanks and take care I got this one because almost all the newer gaming laptop around 1k USA where max q mostly and the others ones where to much like a laptop and 1070 1500 to 2000 that’s way to much for me I got a dell g7 had to return it in two days weird glitch in the screen looked like a old tv static so let’s hope this one is good
Jarrod'sTech (2 months ago)
No problem! Sorry to hear about the G7, I definitely didn't have that issue with the one I reviewed 😰
Laup (2 months ago)
Jarrod...nice reviews man.
Jarrod'sTech (2 months ago)
Yeah stay up pretty late testing stuff and making videos then do it all again 😛 I want to but can't really do that at the moment unless I have my own laptop to test with. I can't take off the stock paste on a review unit as they all get sent back afterwards, if I do that the next person that gets the laptop will report incorrect thermal results without knowing and mislead people.
Laup (2 months ago)
So u work at night. Do some liquid metal tests on laptops, please.

Dude awesome videos! How much quiter is max q?
Ian Wafla (3 months ago)
+Jarrod'sTech Nice.
Jarrod'sTech (3 months ago)
To be honest I think it depends more on the performance differences as realistically there seems to be minimal difference in fan speeds from the laptop overall, so depends on the games you play, settings you use, and what you deem as acceptable frame rates, either of these are good options, I'd pick the laptop you like more with either rather than specifically picking for a max-q version or not.
Ian Wafla (3 months ago)
So, should I get a max q or the normal one? What's your say?
Jarrod'sTech (3 months ago)
Nah not really, to be honest I haven't noticed much difference once you start playing games, but in most laptops I've tested with 8th gen CPUs the CPU gets hotter so that might just be where the fan noise comes from. If you want an idea of how they sound, check my full reviews, I show how the fan noise sounds with a sound meter at idle/gaming/stress test/max speed.
Ian Wafla (3 months ago)
+Jarrod'sTech Yes, kind of is it significantly quiter compared to other laptops running the full 1060? And how quiet is the specific model? Is it greatly wuuet proportionally to the performance or is it I'd rather go for a laptop with the fully pledged 1060? Thanks
Very good, congratulations
Jarrod'sTech (3 months ago)
Cheers!
Kwame Gyanko (3 months ago)
What about the GTX 1060 3GB vs GTX 1060 6GB Max Q? Which is better?
Jarrod'sTech (3 months ago)
Not sure as I've never had a 3GB 1060, I suspect it would be better as the clock speed tends to make a larger difference in most games than more VRAM, but depends on the game and setting levels used, for instance high texture games may make the 6GB one more useful.
Thomp YT (3 months ago)
can you play VR games on max-q?
Thomp YT (3 months ago)
1060 max-q is apparently pretty good! and did you know you can even play VR games on the 1050/1050 ti But why have I never seen anyone playing VR games on the g3?
Jarrod'sTech (3 months ago)
Sure, as for the performance I'm not too sure, depends on the requirements, I don't personally have any VR experience, however most seem to suggest the 1060 as the minimum requirement, and the Max-Q 1060 as shown here is about 10% less performance, so it may still be ok, hard for me to say without having ever tested it.
Akshat Chadha (4 months ago)
Just overlock the normal 1060
Jarrod'sTech (4 months ago)
I avoid showing overclock results in these tests as there are no guarantees of what results you'll actually get, it will vary between laptops based on a number of factors such as power limits and the silicon lottery.
Ashish Parmar (4 months ago)
I will compromise 5 fps for my component reliability
Jarrod'sTech (4 months ago)
I'm not aware of one GPU being any less reliable than the other? Unless you're just talking about the differences between two different laptops.
Qk9CWU5ib3x (4 months ago)
Can you overclock max q to run at 1060 rate?
Jarrod'sTech (4 months ago)
You can overclock it yes, as for whether or not you can get it high enough it will depend on the specific laptop and card itself.
Yacy (4 months ago)
So what’s the goal of MQ at the end? Is it just cheaper?
Jarrod'sTech (4 months ago)
Cheers!
Yacy (4 months ago)
Jarrod'sTech Nice ^^ Well, keep it up man!
Jarrod'sTech (4 months ago)
Oh yeah for sure, just depends on your requirements, for instance a lot of people can only afford one machine and might also need to be able to travel with it, to school for instance. Personally I have a powerful desktop for editing video, then a thin and light laptop with no discrete graphics that I just use for travelling with when I go away, it's a good combo 👌 probably looking at something a bit more powerful next time around so I can still edit 4K video while I'm away from home, e.g. if I go to an event or something and need to make a video.
Yacy (4 months ago)
Jarrod'sTech At the end, it’s cheaper to just build a tower than buying a gaming laptop I believe tho :/ I think ill do that for now and keep my current laptop.

It's a trvp (4 months ago)
I'm new to pc gaming and I cant find a definitive answer I just bought a asus rog with a 1060 and a i7 8750h and I'm curious at what are safe cpu and gpu thermal temps? like what's the maximum that I can play it at without having to worry. and what are temps that I should start to worry at lol
Jarrod'sTech (4 months ago)
No problem, should be ok!
It's a trvp (4 months ago)
Jarrod'sTech my temps on more demanding games have been in the 70-80°c range to low 80's. I'm concerned on ruining my parts from playing too long of sessions and having it get that hot because I'm not sure if those temps are bad or not, also I appreciate the response thanks
Jarrod'sTech (4 months ago)
Welcome! Those are some pretty nice specs 😃 to be honest you shouldn't need to worry too much, if you are getting too hot the hardware will thermal throttle itself back, it'll perform slower so that it doesn't run as hot. From personal testing that CPU seems to max out under full load around 90c, GPU around 70-80 seems about common. If you're getting throttling / want to look at running cooler you could look at trying a cooler pad for the laptop, or perhaps undervolting the CPU later down the road if you're still concerned. What temperatures are you actually seeing while playing games? You can use a tool like HWInfo to monitor.
Cadir Zenur (5 months ago)
lenovo y520 I7 7700hq gtx 1060 6gb max-q design 1t hdd 256gb ssd OR lenovo y720 i7 7700hq gtx 1060 6gb non max-q with 1t hdd? wich?
Cadir Zenur (5 months ago)
Whort 1060 maxq design?
Jarrod'sTech (5 months ago)
I haven't used any Lenovo laptops myself, so with that aside and just going purely on the specs it depends if you need the extra ~10% or so graphics power from the non Max-Q 1060. Keep in mind you can always change and upgrade SSD/HDD later, but you can't upgrade the graphics, so may be worthwhile getting the best graphics you can afford and working out disks later.
Sofiane Zhr (5 months ago)
What is the MSI pc that you used during this video with the 1060 ?
Jarrod'sTech (5 months ago)
Can't recall to be honest, probably the GF62VR 7RF I reviewed on the channel previously.
Alper Tekin (5 months ago)
i have a Lenovo Legion Y520 16 GB ram and NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1060 With Max Q Design is that enough to play games in 60 fps?
Jarrod'sTech (5 months ago)
Yeah it should definitely be up to that 😀
Alex Reader (6 months ago)
Did you test this against a 3GB 1060 or 6GB ?
Jarrod'sTech (6 months ago)
Both were 6gb, I've never had a 3gb 1060 to test with yet
jovan marinovic (6 months ago)
Guys they are actually the same you just need activate the cooling of the 1060 max q in order have the same results
jovan marinovic (6 months ago)
Its depends on the laptop sorry you were right
Jarrod'sTech (6 months ago)
How do you do that? I've had some luck overclocking the Max-Q version, but yes the only difference seems to be clock speed / power limit.
javier candia (6 months ago)
so ... should I get the 1060 or the 1060 max-Q? is for gaming, development and design
javier candia (6 months ago)
Jarrod'sTech what about development in Android studio? Or a good amount of tasks opened at the same time.
Jarrod'sTech (6 months ago)
Depends on what you're doing, as shown the 1060 is about 10% better in general on average but the Max-Q version is still pretty good and may give you cooler and quieter operation.
McLovin McBabies (6 months ago)
what were the 2 laptops that you performed this test on? why didn't you mention them?
Jarrod'sTech (6 months ago)
Thanks!
McLovin McBabies (6 months ago)
Alright, anyway, i wanna tell you again how much i like your channel :)
Jarrod'sTech (6 months ago)
Maybe they ran out of it / no longer sell it there, I assume they have limited models available and want to push the new ones.
McLovin McBabies (6 months ago)
yeah, i guess i'm gonna stick with the G7...but something weird happened, yesterday i was looking at 7577 on dell's website the i7 variant (i5 is there), not i can't find it either there or on amazon, wtf?! i wanted to make sure that i'm not crazy because i thought the 7567 i7 7th gen, 1060 max-q, 1 hdd, 128 ssd, 16 ram was the same price as the G7 (same specs but 8th gen). so that was weird, the 7567 was supposed to be cheaper
Jarrod'sTech (6 months ago)
I'm not aware of anything, all the new laptops I've heard about were mostly April/May releases to coincide with the new 8th gen CPUs, so most of the new stuff til the new GPUs will probably be out pretty soon. The 7577 is pretty good, but yeah the G7 with 6 core CPU would be pretty sweet! I've got a G5 here at the moment and working on the review + comparison with the 7577 😃
koki angelov (6 months ago)
1060 laptop is gtx 970 desktop lol
koki angelov (6 months ago)
yep and gtx 960 desktop is 970m i've tested on my old laptop and performance is the same.
Jarrod'sTech (6 months ago)
Ah ok, nice! I know the 970M is fairly cut down from the desktop 970 (compared to the difference in the 10 series at least) and the 970M seems to be close to a 1050Ti.
koki angelov (6 months ago)
i have 970 and this is very impressive for laptop
Jarrod'sTech (6 months ago)
Yeah probably pretty close, haven't tested the 970 myself so can't say for sure.
Therin Springer (6 months ago)
My 1060 Max Q OCed performs right under the laptop 1060 by about 1-10 fps on depending on game. See a steady 1650-1750 clock and 4200mhz on the memory. As high and higher than the 1060m. Don't forget it never passes 60C. I feel happy with it.

i think i know why the non q max gtx 1060 runs lower FPS when compared to the Qmax gtx1060 when on the low settings, I think it has to do with the fact the gtx 1060 card either throttles itself or only uses the amount of resources needed to run the card as it can help the TDP i would assume when there isnt demand for the full resources on the lower setting, or perhaps the heat at that level of low performance effects the ability of the card as it has a huge amount of power going into it that is not needed/doesnt get use for the low settings but still has the heat of the input power, or perhaps Nvidia thought, who the hell is going to run the GTX 1060 on very low to low settings and didn't optimize the cards for such low performance/low demand on the gpu compared to the input power/TDP So perhaps like a car with a Turbo system on it, where you dont truly see the power of the system unless your going above a certain rpm/level of demand from the engine so to compare it to the gtx 1060 , at the low settings/low demand the 1060 card isnt design/optmized to for the low settings so its in fact more demanding on the gtx1060 to design low settings due to the fact the card is designed for high medium to high/ultra graphics, so like a turbo car that doesnt go pass X amount of rpm/demand makes your system less effect/efficnet as its designed for a certain level of performance and having the card be used for what it wasnt design for (low to very low graphics settings when the card has a pretty large TDP/constant draw power meant to be more effective/effiencecy at the higher settings) Where the Q max is a optmized verision of the card that runs on a lower TDP thus the card is design to run games on lower graphics settings so it will have a better FPS at those settings vs the high settings. this is my overall idea, like a high end turbo car never buidling the PSI to power the turbo, your car wont perform as good as if your turbo isnt running as the overall car was design to have the turbo running putting more air into the engine in order to maintain proper fuel air ratio for gas mileage,etc, but now compare that to a car with no turbo and that car its performance is better at the med to lower rpm for gas consumption.

Ah ok, Eluktronics use the Clevo chassis if I recall, so I've got a few videos on the channel with the Metabox laptops which are essentially the same things with the same model numbers so that might help.
nick SOULE (7 months ago)
Yea its very interesting result tho, and glad i found this video as im looking for a very simulair set up, I7700hq+ gtx1060 6gb in a Eluktronics laptops/lenvoo case, and the one thing im having issue finding is real heat testing done with this setup in a certain laptop chassis as the airflow of the chassis itself can effect the heating/cooling of the components
Jarrod'sTech (7 months ago)
Yeah I could have done some more testing around temps etc while I had the cards, but in the end figured it probably doesn't matter too much, as like you say these games are unlikely to be played on low settings with these GPUs.
[OCB] (7 months ago)
Ah this is a tough one. I can get the Dell G7 with 1060 Max-Q and the new i7 8750H. Or the Alienware laptop with a full 1060 and an i7 7700HQ for the same price. Which one should I get?
Jarrod'sTech (7 months ago)
What are you using it for? Personally I'd get the 8750H laptop, as the extra cores benefit what I do, I don't game much so the difference between graphics is negligible. If you want the best gaming experience the 1060/7700hq will probably be slightly better, from the benchmarks I've seen so far gaming with 8750h isn't that large of an improvement, hopefully I'll have more comparisons with this soon.

Jarrod'sTech (7 months ago)
I haven't used 3ds max for a while, so you might want to look at some benchmarks specifically for it, I'm not too sure how GPU accelerated it is these days. As for photoshop, premiere etc, in a laptop I think it's plenty
MutoreoCookie (7 months ago)
I have picked out a few choices on Amazon. It's either 4k screen i7 7700 16gb of ram with 1060 max Q for $1200 or 1080p screen 8gb of ram, i5 processor, and pull power 1060 for $1000. I think the extra $200 and 8% slower gpu is worth all of that
MutoreoCookie (7 months ago)
Jarrod'sTech sounds good I will check it out! see ya tomorrow then 😁

Jarrod'sTech I don't think I will mind. I require a really crisp image so I can see very small details in high resolution drawings and renders. With 720p and 1080p screen I always have to zoom in significantly before I can see small details. I tend to be working with 4000x4000 canvases and 4k animations so I need a screen that can keep up a bit better than what I'm used to

So, if you overclock the max-q, can you essentially turn it into a regular 1060? i really want to buy the 7577 over the helios but that would be a deciding factor
Jarrod'sTech (7 months ago)
Yeah probably possible to boost the performance a bit if it's cool enough, not sure by how much though as this will depend on the card and I didn't test it myself
PunkeyDoodles Corners (7 months ago)
Just ordered a 7577 w/no Max Q. Received my order confirmation and in the item it says "NVIDIA N17E-G1" which is the non Max Q1060. Just thought I'd share, might have just been that model - almost bought the new G7 15 and I am happy I did not because it has 1060 max -q - all tho i would have preferred the i7-8750h over the 7700HQ. TY for the post!
James Le (7 months ago)
I spoke with a dell rep since I was also curious and they confirmed that there is no variant of the 7557 that comes with a non max-q 1060. The *New* in the listing is simply due Dell's Canadian website including it within its name. The USA website just lists it as Dell Inspiron 15 gaming. They're one in the same.
James Le (7 months ago)
I'm fairly interested in your claim. Could you come back after you receive the laptop and let us know if it really has a standard 1060
PunkeyDoodles Corners (7 months ago)
Right!! I am hoping so, and honestly I didn't know that there was such a variance in performance between the Max-Q and the regular 1060 until I watched your video - I greatly appreciate that. When I receive it, I will let you know what the verdict is - they keep updating these laptops, and do no marketing around it so it will be a nice surprise - no one seems to be talking about it, so it would be good if someone brought this change to light *wink, wink - nudge, nudge* ;)
Jarrod'sTech (7 months ago)
Hmm it does seem like it's got the regular 1060, interesting!
PunkeyDoodles Corners (7 months ago)
Maybe Dell watched your vid and smartened up lol correct me if I am wrong, but the Max-Q GPU is "N17P-G1 Max-Q" - this is saying "NVIDIA N17E-G1"
Aman Somanna (7 months ago)
Basically the 1060 Max Q versions are clearly meant for the single player Fps games which are competitive and gamers usually switch to lower graphic settings for improved gaming performance hence in your video the max Q performed better than 1060 In non competitive games like watch dogs and Witcher the difference was clearly shown Csgo Rainbow 6 Pubg on the other hand are competive and the max Q has the upper hand Peace ✌
Jarrod'sTech (7 months ago)
The difference is even clearer in my upcoming 1060 vs 1070 Max-Q video 😃
I will bet my left nutt that the max-q is just simply underclocked and not actually with any consideration with max underclock while maintaining performance, they're literally ripping you people off
Jarrod'sTech (7 months ago)
Possibly, the specs they list just shows basically the same thing but with lower clock speeds / power usage, I don't really have any idea though.

Using unigine heaven i get 7 fps and my frame rate is capped at 30fps for some reason on my dell 7577 i5-7300HQ 1060 max q I'm thinking of returning it, something is wrong especially when it looks like it's running smoothly on your model
David Vu (2 months ago)
i5 procesor thats why
Make sure you are not using the intel HD graphics
Jarrod'sTech (8 months ago)
I don't suppose you're running in battery power? By default nvidia battery boost caps the frame rate to 30fps when running on battery to save power
Nawras EpicDuel (8 months ago)
Yo what about a 1060 max q with i7 8750H vs 1060 with 7700HQ (aka Dell g7 15 vs Acer Predator Helios 300)
Jarrod'sTech (8 months ago)
I'll do that comparison when I get a 1060/8750H laptop, at the moment my first 8th gen laptop will probably have 1070 Max-Q graphics though in a week or two.
Juan RD (8 months ago)
Man your videos are good! i just cant decide between Asus gl503 or Dell 7577, the key factor for me is that Asus gets pretty hot and Dell doesn't, but i don't know if i'm not gonna regret not getting a 1060 over a 1060 Max-Q. What would you recommend?
Jarrod'sTech (8 months ago)
I'd probably go the 7577 for better battery life and thermals, but I don't think I'd personally notice the difference in graphics performance, but that's just me 😛

Kevin Snijder (8 months ago)
The Dell has higher clock speeds than the normal 1060 max-Q for some reason. Beware of that.
Jarrod'sTech (8 months ago)
Yeah that's true, like I mention in the video not all Max-Q graphics cards are equal, depends on the laptop and yeah this is on the higher end of the spectrum of what's available.

Coffee Addicted (8 months ago)
so regular 1060 gives you more FPS
Jarrod'sTech (8 months ago)
Yes that's correct, it runs at faster speeds so it performs better
Aaron Zeyner (8 months ago)
What does "1% lows" mean? Is that throttling?
Jarrod'sTech (8 months ago)
So we have average frame rate, and then the minimum frame rate would refer to the lowest FPS during the whole test, however showing the lowest isn't really useful because a one off dip during a test run could give an incorrect display of the real minimum, so the 1% lows are basically the 1% lowest FPS numbers during the test, which are a bit more useful at giving an idea of what to expect worst case on average.

umm no it's not. At the time mark I am pointing there is some forest and rain, it's definitely not Firestrike which I played on my laptop many times.
Jarrod'sTech (8 months ago)
It's fire strike from 3DMark
mario megale (8 months ago)
PUBG definitely benefits from the higher clocks speeds from the regular 1060 at higher settings than the MAX-Q because it is way more gpu intensive at those presets. The lower settings show the MAX-Q pulls ahead at lower settings because that laptop has an intel core i7-7700HQ whereas the regular 1060 laptop has the i7-6700HQ so the better cpu helps when the load is removed from the gpu and put on the cpu.
Jarrod'sTech (8 months ago)
In this test both laptops had the same 7700HQ CPU, I'm guessing at lower settings the GPU matters less as there's less work for it, but still not really sure why the MQ comes out in front.

Zenur Cadir (9 months ago)
Jarrod'sTech I will buy the i5 7300hq with gtx 1060 6gb in gaming and in steaming i will use the gpu.. ;)
Jarrod'sTech (9 months ago)
Hmm the better CPU would probably be beneficial then, I'd probably pick the 7700HQ and 1060 3GB, I use a 1060 3GB in a desktop and I don't have issues even with larger map games like PUBG.
Zenur Cadir (9 months ago)
Jarrod'sTech I also want to do streaming..
Jarrod'sTech (9 months ago)
6GB is better, but it depends what you're doing with the laptop. For me personally I don't game that much, so the CPU is more useful to me in other tasks. If you are primarily gaming, then the 7300HQ should still be fine for games, and the 6GB 1060 might be beneficial. I haven't tested the 7300HQ myself so hard for me to say for sure.

pjecki (9 months ago)
So how do you spot which laptop got the Max-Q version?

You'd have to check for it in the specs when you're looking at a particular laptop. If you have a laptop, it also lists the graphics as "Max-Q" in device manager.

Jarrod'sTech i did have a question, ive found a lot of laptops in my price range with a 1060, but its always the 3gb version. If i dont plan on gaming at 4k or VR is the 6gb going to give me noticeable performance over the 3?

I also have dell 7577 and is noticeably loud. As suggested below, use wisper mode in GeForce Experience. If you are a more advanced computer user, you can re-apply thermal paste with a nicer option or liquid metal. Guides for that are all over YT, considering doing it myself

To be honest I've found them both to be pretty similar in terms of overall build quality, and in many cases you can get similar specs for the price. I might go with ASUS, but only because I've had the chance to test their high end stuff, I haven't yet tried any high end MSI laptops 😛

Hi Jarrod, how does this 1060 Max-Q perform in video editing ?
sok chanrado (10 months ago)
It is very best way to use on editing
Jarrod'sTech (10 months ago)
No problem! From what I understand the GPU doesn't help that much during the editing process, at least with Adobe Premiere. I haven't done any proper testing but I don't really notice a difference between different levels of GPU, and not sure how I'd benchmark it well, any suggestions? Unfortunately I haven't gotten my hands on the HP Omen yet, I reached out to them a few weeks ago to see if I could borrow one for review for a bit but they basically said no :p
Jackson Leesj (10 months ago)
Appreciate your speedy reply! Yeah I understand that the exporting is based on the CPU, I mean during editing does it support 4K well...? Maybe you can try? haha I'm still thinking whether to get this or the HP Omen. ><'
Jarrod'sTech (10 months ago)
Unfortunately I didn't test it in Adobe Premiere, sorry about that! I'd assume a similar performance difference lower than the regular laptop 1060 though, so perhaps around 7% or so, but that is just a guess based on my other data, the video exporting process isn't purely GPU based so it doesn't really seem to make as much of a difference I don't think, at least compared to the CPU power.

Jarrod'sTech (10 months ago)

Tamás Cseke (10 months ago)
Do you think a 1060 max q with only 3Gb Vram is still better than a 4Gb 1050Ti?
Jarrod'sTech (10 months ago)
Depends what you're doing with it and the games you're playing. I'm going to do a comparison of 1050 Ti and 1060 with Max-Q soon, so you'll be able to see the difference, however I'd probably prefer the 1060, as I think realistically both cards are designed for 1080p, and higher memory is mainly more useful at higher resolutions, but of course it does depend on the game.

+RANDOM PLAYER64 if you have the latest version of windows you can look at the GPU name in task manager performance tab, otherwise look in device manager, or install a third party tool like hwinfo. Basically if it doesn't list max-q then it's probably a regular 1060

Oh, you were testing on the Dell 7577? I thought it it was an MSI with a 1060 Max-Q. Lol. Probably because the thumbnail showed two MSI laptops? Anyway, I already saw your review for the Dell 7577, it's currently my number one choice right now.

To be fair the temps are worst case rather than while gaming, I'm going to try and include gaming temps going forward too. The Max-Q laptop is the Dell 7577, which I personally liked better. I've got a full review of that one here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlHml4BU270

I will say only one Intel Radeon Rx Vega M
Jarrod'sTech (10 months ago)
Haha maybe, I hope I can get one to compare it, I've heard it should be similar to the 1060!

Jarrod'sTech (11 months ago)
I'm getting a 1050 Ti laptop next week, so I will be doing this comparison soon!

1050 is bullshit
zeyad jy (11 months ago)
don't worry man I know its very hard to get all this hardware and do all these tests, i hope you will have a 1050 ti soon, wish you the best luck.
Jarrod'sTech (11 months ago)
+zeyad jy I really want to do that, but unfortunately it's been a while since I've had a 1050ti laptop to get all the numbers I need, if I can get one I'll definitely do the comparison!

No problem!

I am getting max q because it's quiter and a performance looks close to the non q version.
Jarrod'sTech (11 months ago)
+FourtwentySoldier fair enough! Yeah it's fairly close
bruh, max q 1060 is cheaper

NORMIE MEMES FOR NORMIE TEENS What you listed is NOT MAX-Q! And the processor in the item you listed is an i5-7300HQ! While the one in the Helios 300 is an i7-7700HQ! Which is why there’s a $100 price tag difference between the Helios 300 and this Dell Laptop!
Jarrod'sTech https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0764HW117/ref=psdcmw_13896615011_t1_B06Y4GZS9C its $899 which is cheaper than acer helios 300 with 1060

i don't own a laptop whit max-q but one may run the i7 whit better peak performance since better thermal design max-q since more power is available for the chip since ashe of singularity is intensive cpu wise may impact when receiving lot of call (low setting)more fps.Take a look at the number on the cpu when doing you run for long time may reveal my though right or not.Clcok speed are probably able to hold better on one model versu the other.If i got the right answer than send me one of those nice laptop ^^;)like we said in my region a men try...Sorry for my bad english it is late and it is my second language i'm french

did i just win a laptop rolf ;)
Jarrod'sTech (11 months ago)
Yeah that's a good point, lower GPU temps could definitely reduce CPU heat and throttling, given most of the time I 100% load both CPU and GPU during testing in many cases the CPU will overheat and throttle itself, when the GPU load is removed the throttling stops, so having a cooler GPU would indeed help that.

How many dB did you get on dell compare to the msi?
Jarrod'sTech (11 months ago)
Cheers! Yeah I expected it to be lower too.
Pendeliko (11 months ago)
@Jarrod'sTech Seems decent but it should be much lower as maxQ, I might be wrong tho. Thanks for the awesome video :)
Jarrod'sTech (11 months ago)
54.3dba on the 1060 and 49.4dba on the 1060 max-q
Joshua Okolie (11 months ago)
Thank you for this Jarrod. I've been looking for something like this as I'm planning to get this laptop.
Jarrod'sTech (11 months ago)
No worries! Hope it helped :)
Jet Gadz (11 months ago)
Just want to ask if what model is the MSI laptop you'ved been used? Thaaanks!
Jet Gadz (11 months ago)
Thanks man. That's a lot of help!
Jarrod'sTech (11 months ago)
Hmm in that case could be worth it, in cs:go you'll probably be getting pretty good FPS even with a 1060 / max-q 1060 so the 120hz screen would be worth it there, less likely in pubg though unless you're playing on very low.
Jet Gadz (11 months ago)
Thanks for the suggestion man. BTW I play more on FPS games (PUBG, CS:GO, Paladins) should I get the 120hz display or nah? If not, should I get the MSI GF62 or GE62 (coz I want to try the msi brand)?
Jarrod'sTech (11 months ago)
In general I think the 1060 is great for 1080p 60 FPS gaming, for the games that I play I wouldn't really benefit from a 120Hz display unless I was playing on lower settings, or less demanding games, so if you're doing either of those then it should be fine, otherwise if you want to play higher demanding games such as the ones tested here and be able to best use the 120Hz display I'd personally be looking at getting a 1070, or otherwise getting a 1060 laptop with a 60Hz screen which should be a bit cheaper.
Jet Gadz (11 months ago)
Cool. I'm planning to buy the MSI GF72 (the 17 inch version with 1060 and 120hz screen) any thoughts?
