GTX 1060 6GB with i7-6700K 1080p, 1440p, Ultrawide, 4K benchmarks at High Quality

At 1440p, GTX 1060 6GB 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 6GB 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 6GB against the competition in budget mid-range cards. In terms of memory, the GTX 1060 6GB 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks.

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 6GB is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 254. 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 6GB, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

The GTX 1060 6GB is much more expensive than the GTX 960 as it costs a whopping $ 254. Compare this to the GTX 960, which came originally at a price of $ 199. Meanwhile, the AMD closest equivalent card is the RX 580 which costs $ 229. Spec for spec, this GTX 1060 6GB leapfrogs its direct predecessor, the GTX 960, by boasting 2 % more fps.

The GTX 1060 6GB has 6 GB RAM compared to the GTX 960 's 2 GB video memory. In our synthetic benchmarks, the GTX 1060 6GB blows past the GTX 960 and, amazingly, even the GTX 970 as well.

Fortunately, gaming performance was quite impressive. The GTX 1060 6GB 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 Hitman 2, Apex Legends, F1 2019, World War Z, Battlefield V at 61 fps to 68 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 65 fps.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 - the Digital Foundry verdict When we first heard the 9/£240 price-point for the GTX 1060, we could almost hear the sigh of relief emanating from AMD headquarters.

Today, NVIDIA released the GeForce GTX 1060, which is designed to combat AMD's Radeon RX 480. It looks like NVIDIA has won this fight since the GTX 1060 brings GTX 980 performance levels to the table while being much more power efficient than the RX 480 - all at a price point of 9 to 9.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Review : Read more . It is not supposed to compete with 200$ 4GB RX 480. For that we will have ~200$ 3GB pascal card whatever they will call it (1050, 1060 3GB).
The GeForce GTX 1060 is Nvidia's answer to AMD's Radeon RX 480, which redefined what a 0 graphics card can do.
I bought a retail MSI Geforce GTX 1060 Gaming X card last month and it was defaulted to OC mode by default. This is the same as the test version that the press received.

NVIDIA releasing the GeForce GTX 1060 so early came as a surprise to most as everybody expected it to be released in fall, around October, which would have given NVIDIA time to milk the high-end while AMD's RX 480 captured the lower end of the market.

I'm looking forward to upgrading to the Ryzen 5 2600x (from an i3-4130) and i'm happy to see, that this combo (I already have a 1060 6gb) achieves very smooth frames in basically any AAA game at high settings, which is already a HUGE upgrade from playing Far Cry 5 on lowest settings with 0.6 render scaling at only 45-60 fps due to that ugly i3 bottleneck xD

In most games 3 GB is still enough for 1080p high, but it will definitely start showing it's age soon. RX 570 would take advantage in DX12 games and the extra vram is going to be useful, so go with the 570.
