  1. Been through a few reviews.

    It seems that it performs exactlly as expected. 10% faster than a RX 480.

    OC results through different reviews is quite consistent with +/- 2050MHz boost.

    Exactly on par with a 980. Not bad for $250!

    We should get 980's and 980 ti's on the cheap soon!

    I just can't get how nvidia is bumping prices each generation and all are only clapping because performance is good. Yes performance is good but soon to play games we will have to spend $300+ only on graphics card.

    I sold GTX960 for about $190 2 months ago ( it was maybe $30 less than new card in stores ) and I was counting that I will add maybe $50 and get GTX1060 ... while GTX1060 cost $350. It supposed to be direct replacement and maybe 10% more as it's new product.

    ( all prices are my local prices with tax etc )


    I can't remember the last time I bought a video card for only $350, or even anywhere around that price.
    Weird that in this link 3GB version has less CUDA cores while the only difference should be memory. I could faster think they can lower memory bandwidth than cut something else. Still if it's replacement for GTX960 then I think it's way too pricy ( the same as all other GTX1000 cards ). It's already listed in local stores in price about the same as RX480 and these cards cost about $70 more than supposed to.

    Looks like in this DX12 benchmark, its basically neck and neck with the RX480.

    and heres more info on the rumored 3gb variant:

    http://wccftech.com/gtx-1060-3gb-detailed-specs-leak/

    its almost exactly as a i figured, the way it would be cutdown. Honestly they should rename it the 1050 since it seems like they are sticking with 1060, but its early and its a leak/rumor at this point so it remains to be seen.
    Looking at nvidia early slides and comparison to GTX980, GTX1060 should be about as fast as GTX1070 :p ... but really it should be at least slightly faster than RX480 as I doubt it will be slower than GTX970. I'm not sure if 25% faster than RX480 isn't too much but 10% can be real. We will find out in couple of days.
    You can just never trust leaked benchmarks, same thing happened with the rx 480, a few benchmarks popped up claiming it was faster than the 980, then another claimed it was better than the fury x, and it turned out just to be on par with a 970
    The commenters make some pretty good points, and several back them up. It's uncommon for everyone to call BS. Even NV fanboys are a no show. Wow.
    just came here to post that, beaten to the punch. Not exactly sure those sorts of numbers beat a 980 though? The comments on the post here http://videocardz.com/62122/nvidia-geforce-gtx-1060-official-performance-leaked mention alot of tomfoolery going on with the numbers, at least it seems that way to them. Who knows.

    That would make sense as lower models are sometimes cut back higher models. But they aren't going to call it a 1050 with ONLY cutting back on the vRAM. There will be cut down cuda cores/rops/tmu's, etc.


    thats what i was implying. Meant "cutdown 1060" as everything on it would be cutdown, pretty much.
