I have a 1050ti laptop for $750, should I exchange it for a 1060 $1100 laptop?

Thats a nice looking laptop. Even when I was watching some of these laptop reviews, so many of them had atrocious editing and dubstep electro music with kinda make everything about these types of laptops corny. But there's hope. Dave Lee for example is awesome, I subscribed to him recently, very clean and professional.

^Thanks, I really like that the shell is made of aluminum, I tried a couple of similar laptops with plastic shells, they all felt and looked kinda cheap (even though they were expensive haha) :p

PS: it's fully aluminum, a lot of laptops I saw were only partly aluminum, partly plastic which doesn't look good either.

What laptop is that and how much did you get it for?

The 1060 does not offer double the performance of a 1050ti, it's about 25%.

I had a laptop with the same specs as yours except for an i7-7700hq processor and the 1050ti could handle most of the games at 1080p60 on max, or close to max settings. Exceptions to this were your well known demanding games like Tomb Raider and Witcher 3 which were around 45fps.

I never had screen tearing and ran all games with v-sync on.

I don't think the extra $400 justifies the actual gains you will get from switching.

I know the Dell 7567 and it is a very nice laptop with excellent build quality. Is yours the one with the TN screen or the end of line IPS?

The only way I think $400 would be worth the switch is if you plan on using the laptop for recording and rendering because the 1060 paired with the i7-7700hq will give you more headroom and performance for those tasks. Also if you are going to make the swap to a 1060 laptop from yours make sure it has a 75hz or preferably 120hz g-sync screen or I wouldn't bother.

Your biggest issue seems to be that you are sensitive to varying frame rates, if this is the case you would notice the biggest difference not from more power but from a g-sync screen, it really is that good. You will get no more screen tearing and no more frame just from vsync, just silky smooth frames.

TLDR; I wouldn't switch unless GSync screen.

Its more like 70-80% more performance not 25

Gtx 1060 6gb is about 85% more powerful than a gtx 1050 ti and if the gtx 1060 would be the 3gb model, it is still about 75% more powerful in average user bench.

The 6 GB model is only like 5% stronger than the 3GB model. So it would be more like 80% more powerful instead of 70.

All depends, what kind of overclocks both models possess. Average use bench put it at about 75%.

This

but I can't find the silver one, these seem all to have black plastic parts...

And that's also roughly what I paid - 799 iirc

Apologies all, when I wrote that post I was comparing a 1060 to a 1070. Yes the 1060 is a lot more powerful than the 1050ti lol. My bad.
