GTX 1060 3GB with i7-6700K benchmarks at High Quality settings

At 1440p, GTX 1060 3GB can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is clear that the GTX 1060 3GB is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for GTX 1060 3GB against the competition in budget mid-range cards. With regards to max load temperature, the GTX 1060 3GB 's cooling is excellent at keeping it cool and under control. With current 3072 MB RAM, the GTX 1060 3GB can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.

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 3GB is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 170. 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 3GB, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

The GTX 1060 3GB is much more cheaper than the GTX 960 as it costs $ 170. Compare this to the GTX 960, which came originally at a price of $ 199. Meanwhile, the AMD closest equivalent card is the RX 480 which costs $ 400. Spec for spec, this GTX 1060 3GB leapfrogs its direct predecessor, the GTX 960, by boasting 2 % more fps.

The GTX 1060 3GB has 3 GB RAM compared to the GTX 960 's 2 GB video memory. In our synthetic benchmarks, the GTX 1060 3GB blows past the GTX 960 and, amazingly, even the GTX 970 as well.

Fortunately, gaming performance was quite impressive. The GTX 1060 3GB 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 F1 2019, World War Z, Battlefield V, Forza Horizon 4, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 at 62 fps to 69 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 65 fps.
