This article tells you what to expect from laptops built on Intel Core H platforms and Nvidia GTX 1060 Pascal graphics in terms of performance and features, as well as includes a detailed list of all the gaming laptops with Nvidia 1060 dedicated GPUs available in stores at this point.
In few words, GTX 1060 notebooks handle everyday activities and work-loads fine, and are the value-buy if you’re looking for the best gaming experience you can get for the money. Most sell for $1100 to $1500, with a few more expensive options with thin-and-light form factors, premium builds and specific features.
In terms of gaming performance, GTX 1060 notebooks tackle the latest launches at FHD resolutions and High to Maximum settings, but there are exceptions with taxing demands that might require you to lower the details. GTX 1060 notebooks are also VR Ready.
Based on your expectations and budget, you should also check out our articles on the faster-variants built on Nvidia GTX 1070 and 1080 chips, the ultraportable variants built on the energy-efficient Nvidia Max-Q variations of the 1060/1070 and 1080 chips, as well as the more affordable options powered by mid-level GTX 1050/1050 Ti graphics.
The GTX 1060 Pascal mobile chips are available with either 3 or 6 GB of GDDR5 video memory and are much faster than the Maxwell GTX 970M and even the 980M solutions used in older laptops.
We’ve added a few benchmarks results below, enough to give you a big picture on the differences between the GTX 1060 and other similar level Pascal and Maxwell variants. They’re based on our reviews, as well as on Notebookcheck’s greater pool of tested devices.
|GTX 1050 Ti 4GB||GTX 1060 3GB||GTX 1060 6GB||GTX 970M 4GB||GTX 1070M 8GB|
|3D Mark 11||~9000 points||~12100 points||~12400 points||~9400 points||~16800 points|
|3D Mark – Fire Strike Graphics||~7600 points||~11500 points||~12000 points||~7500 points||~17300 points|
|Tomb Raider – FHD Ultimate||~90 fps||~134 fps||~139 fps||~85 fps||~200 fps|
|Shadow of Mordor – FHD Ultra||~57 fps||~83 fps||~86 fps||~52 fps||~116 fps|
|Bioshock Infinite – FHD Ultra||~73 fps||~96 fps||~100 fps||~72 fps||~134 fps|
|Witcher 3 – FHD Ultra||~27 fps||~34 fps||~37 fps||~26 fps||~60 fps|
Keep in mind that these results vary between implementations, as each manufacturer is able to choose the power limitations and frequencies of the GPU within each build, according to the frame’s thickness and cooling design. That’s why you should look for reviews of the exact specific model you’re interested in in order to find out what to expect in terms of performance and gaming capabilities.
Below you’ll find a full list of all the modern gaming laptops with Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics, with details about the hardware inside, battery, screens and each unit’s important particularities. We’ve included mostly the latest-generation units, with few exceptions of portable computers with older slightly older hardware, but we took out most of the older full-size entries. We’ve reviewed many of these devices, and you can follow the links for the detailed articles, or you can check out the updated configurations and prices at the time you’re reading the article.
We’re constantly updating this list, but if you spot any mistake or some particular model that should be here and is not, please get tell us about it in the comments section at the end of the article.

We’re constantly updating and improving the listing of laptops with Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics above, but if you spot any mistakes or if you found a laptop that should be in here and it’s not, please get in touch.
In the meantime, you can also check out our list of portable gaming laptops, as well as our articles on the faster-variants built on Nvidia GTX 1070 and 1080 chips, the ultraportable variants built on the energy-efficient Nvidia Max-Q variations of the 1060/1070 and 1080 chips or the more affordable options powered by mid-level GTX 1050/1050 Ti graphics.
August 24, 2016 at 4:28 am
I notice you have the Razer 14″ listed on here but their website shows it still having the 970m. Which is right?
August 24, 2016 at 6:46 pm
They will have a 1060 version somewhere in the future, it hasn’t been launched yet. Not all the units mentioned in here are available right now.
August 25, 2016 at 9:00 pm
You meant 1060 version, right? I think they will unveil new razer blade in PAX. Lenovo and acer are said to be unveiling Kaby lake line up at IFA (may be just U version) but razer might surprise (though I highly doubt it) with Kaby lake.
August 27, 2016 at 8:15 am
Yes, 1060, of course.
August 30, 2016 at 7:05 pm
Seems like (given intel’s announcement) kaby lake is not coming in quad core till next year.
November 8, 2016 at 12:11 am
Look at this link below mate it shows a laptop with a 7700hq: linustechtips.com/main/topic/687600-new-alienware-15-r3-and-dell-xps-13-spotted-on-import-shipment-data/#comment-8826560
August 26, 2016 at 1:34 am
thanks for the info!!
Any idea or ETA for Lenovo W/ GTX 1060 ?
i would like to see an ideapad with this video card
August 27, 2016 at 8:16 am
Should see new announcements at IFA in early September. I don’t think they’ll have a portable option though, probably an update of the IdeaPad Y700, which is seriously bulky
August 26, 2016 at 1:49 am
new laptops w/ gtx 1060
– Eluktronics P650RP6
– GIGABYTE P55Wv6-PC3D
Check Here: newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100167732%20601211658&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&Order=PRICE&PageSize=36
August 31, 2016 at 3:09 pm
Thanks for the heads-up. The P650 is far from being portable, so I won’t add it here. I did add the Gigabyte though.
September 2, 2016 at 4:55 am
Alienware is out but they too seem far from portable, even the 13 according to pcworld will weight 6 pounds.
Herman van der Blom
December 28, 2016 at 7:43 am
You know why they are not so portable? Nvidea makes bad coolable GPU's. If you don't assemble those laptops very well, like Dell and you play Doom at high framerates the GPU gets very hot. A lot of those laptop farmers cuts on good cooling. Thats how my Dell x702 expensive laptop got screwed. So don't buy a Dell for gaming. I think it deserves the writing of an Article about cooling GPU's in Hardcore gaming laptops because right now it sucks.
September 2, 2016 at 4:19 pm
Great list, thanks, I’ve come back here several times in the last few days. Any chance you can add battery run time to the table?
Razer just released more info on the new Razer Blade with gtx 1060 , starting price $1799
September 3, 2016 at 6:30 am
There’s battery capacity mentioned for most in the Comments field. Battery life is going to differ based on your activities, I can’t really get in depth, but you can estimate based on reviews and battery size.
Thanks for the headsup on the Blade, we have a post about it but I haven’t yet updated this one
September 14, 2016 at 10:43 am
I’m looking for a laptop with the 1060 with the best battery life. I wanted to purchase the Gigabyte Aero 14 with a 94Whr battery. However I see laptops with the 1060 are around the same price. I like the Aero 14 because it is lightweight, has a decent graphics card, and has a big battery.
I hope gigabyte comes out with an aero 14 like device that has the 1060. But I doubt they will soon, as the Aero 14 has been sold out since release.
September 14, 2016 at 12:55 pm
How’s the build quality of the Aero 14 compared to other laptops? I’m asking cause I never got a chance to see this product live and quite a few people are generally complaining about shabby builds on Gigabyte laptops.
January 1, 2017 at 8:17 pm
In order to be cheaper, Gigabyte put some plastic in this machine. The screen flexes a little, but it's not a problem considering they were able to fit a huge battery and great components. So, overall the build quality is great.
September 14, 2016 at 5:41 pm
Are you certain the AW13 is shipping with Kaby Lake processor? Do you have a link with any more info?
September 15, 2016 at 4:01 pm
Well, there are no sources mentioning kaby lake hardware just yet, details are very scarce on this one, so call it my assumptions. Could be wrong, but I don’t see why they would push the update for November if they weren’t updating the CPU as well, as the 15 and 17 inch options are scheduled for September (and there’s no CPU upgrade on these.
September 19, 2016 at 10:43 pm
Possible upcoming Alienware options, with both Pascal & Polaris variant. This should be interesting.
As for AW13, it is likely to get Kaby lake variant as the new XPS 13 is also on KL. I think AW13 has always been on U variant previously if I’m not mistaken.
September 23, 2016 at 9:03 pm
I’d love to find a tablet with pen support and a 1060 or 1050 chip in it. Heard of any upcoming pen enabled tablets? Vaio Z Flip with 1060 would be my dream machine.
September 24, 2016 at 5:07 am
I doubt there’s going to be such a product, but who knows. I’m not aware of any right now.
October 10, 2016 at 3:15 pm
Alienware 15 will be 5 pounds, have quad core H series processor (no generation mentioned).
October 11, 2016 at 5:55 am
Thanks, I’ve update the listing
October 19, 2016 at 6:36 am
Asus FX502VM, (GTX 1060, Core i5) basically a cheaper version of the GL502 without all the head turning lights and crap…
October 20, 2016 at 5:05 am
Thanks, I’ve added it to the list.
October 25, 2016 at 5:06 pm
my question is… will switchable graphics ruin the experience? if the only physical connection is to the integrated graphics, will the GPU try to funnel through the Integrated graphics on most the laptops? basically are they all software based hybrids? if so it doesnt matter how powerful they are, this technology is full of bugs.
October 29, 2016 at 2:52 am
Looks like Gigabyte has a page up for the NEW AERO 14 with GTX 1060
October 30, 2016 at 2:40 pm
Thanks, I've added it to the list. This is one of the most interesting portable options, alongside the MSI GS43 and the Razer Blade 14.

Will this list be updated with new laptops announced at CES 2017?

Yes, I'm working on that right now

checkout the new AERO 14W v7-CF1 with:
14" 2560×1440 IPS
1xPCIe NVMe SSD
3.1 + 3×3.0
I have been looking for a light (< 2.4kg) 1060 laptop with 2xNVMe 2000MBs, LAN, HDMI + DP to support dual monitors. The only one which fits this is the Aorus X3 Plus v6 for which there are no detailed reviews and very few re-sellers. Nice to have are colour accuracy and fast SD reader for photo work. No interest in thunderbolt unless there are two or it is addition to LAN and at least one 4k monitor port.

Guys, there's a lot of misinformation regarding weight on your lists of gaming laptops. Not just on this page, but also 1050, 1050 Ti, 1070 and 1080 list as well.
For example, the Clevo P650HP6 on this list is actually 2.8 kg, not 2.5, and Asus FX502VM is 2.6 kg, not 2.2, as both measured by reputable review sites like notebookcheck.net. I'm seeing lots of wrong weightings on MSI lapotps as well.
Not saying this is you're fault, just reminding that weight listings of gaming laptops on ODM/OEM websites' specifications page are usually not to be trusted, just like battery life in "hours" of non-gaming laptops.
I really like how you put the battery in "watt-hour" capacity, not hours, because it's the most accurate measurement. Please just check your weight listings with other reviews that've actually measured laptops on scales.
And btw, each of your list also has a lot of missing models. In this case for instance, a few of Clevo's and Gigabyte's lower-end models have 1060 as well. Just trying to be helpful! :)

Hi Kyle, thanks for your feedback.
Most of these laptops are added before we actually get to review them, based on official specs and initial data. Unfortunately we don't get to double check often and update the info, this site is on the most part, a one time job. Comments like yours help though, so heads ups on the errors and missing products are more then welcomed.

Hey Guys…what are your thoughts on the Gigabyte Sabre 15
FHD 120Hz 3ms 92% color gamut panel
i7-8750H Gen 8 CPU
…looking at buying one at the moment :)

I haven't personally reviewed it, but there's a good review here you can check out: notebookcheck.net/Gigabyte-Sabre-15-i7-7700HQ-GTX-1050-Laptop-Review.235772.0.html#toc-verdict . Lots of nits and quirks.

Thanks for the reply Andrei. Have a squiz at this review of the new version of the Sabre 15 that was released this year after Computex 2018 (www.trustedreviews.com/reviews/gigabyte-sabre). And fortunately I'm not in the UK so the model I can buy has the GTX 1060 6GB graphics adapter available in it :)

That's not a review though, it's merely a hands-on impression at the show. Unfortunately there's not much I can say, as I've personally never touched the Sabre, it's not available over here. I'd reckon you should at least get it from a place that allows easy returns in case you decide it's not what you want.

Great article – can you add the ability to sort by weight? your list is pretty long by this point. Thanks, if this is possible, but I understand it might need a complete recode of how you display your list.

Not really possible to add sorting with this layout, sry

This laptops in this list may be old, but it can do with a little updating.
My Lenovo Y520 has a 6GB GTX 1060 paired with an i7-7700HQ.
