Just when you think NVIDIA is done unveiling their super new cards the GTX 1080 and 1070, they bless us all with the GTX 1060. The new NVIDIA GTX 1060 is currently the cheapest card built on the company’s Pascal architecture and packs a punch. The GTX 1060 pack 6GB of GDDR5 RAM and a boost clock speed of 1.7GHz, we have no information on the base clock at the moment but, NVIDIA claims that the card will be overclockable to 2GHz just like the 1080 and 1070 Founders cards.
The new card is built using a 16nm FinFET process and has 1,280 CUDA cores compared to 1,920 cores in the GTX 1070 and 2,560 in the 1080, it also features a 120W TDP, and five display outputs: HDMI, DVI, and a trio of DisplayPorts. The VR-ready card is more like the 2014 GTX 980 that had 2,048 core, but NVIDIA claims that the new GTX 1060’s performance is better thanks tp the faster processor, memory, and other components. NVIDIA plans to release the GTX 1060 on July 19th for $249, there will also be an offering of a Founders Edition for $299 as well.
