Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 6GB Review
With the launch of the Geforce GTX 1060 6GB, Nvidia offers its own cutting-edge answer to the rival AMD Radeon RX 480.
According to Tech Power Up, the Geforce GTX 1060 is Nvidia's response to AMD's Radeon RX 480. The GTX 1060 is based on Nvidia's newer 16 nm GP106 silicon technology that represents the third ASIC built on the cutting-edge Pascal architecture. The GTX 1060 GPU provides 75 percent of the memory configuration and raster operation of the GTX 1080, while it features only half the SIMD machinery of the 1080's GP104 silicon.
The Geforce GTX 1060 6GB graphics card variant features 6 GB memory on a 192-bit GDDR5 memory interface, 1,280 CUDA cores, 80 TMUs and 48 ROPs. According to PC Perspective, with a starting price of only $250, the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 has the potential to be the best budget graphics card on the market today.
The Nvidia GTX 1060 features a GPU base clock of 1506 MHz, with the potential to boost clock speed rated at 1708 MHz. The rated clock speeds of the GPU allow the GTX 1060 to hit a performance of 4.35 TFLOPS, a 48 percent difference compared with GTX 1070. In gaming performance, the new Geforce GTX 1060 6GB also compares to the Geforce GTX 980 that is rated at 4.61 TFLOPS at base clock speed.
The reference Founders Edition GTX 1060 card comes with 6 GB of GDDR5 memory that runs at 8.0 GHz / 8 Gbps. The memory interface has a 192-bit design.
The new Pascal architecture implemented by Nvidia on its latest GTX 1060, 1070 and 1080 graphics cards improves on performance with memory compression advancements. However, on the Geforce GTX 1060 the 192-bit memory bus can only run at 192 GB/s.
The GTX 1060 6GB graphics card comes with a single 6-pin power connection and with a TDP of just 120 W. For gaming enthusiasts, the good news is that the card gives room for slight power target adjustments and overclocking.
