Manufactured on the leading-edge FinFET 16nm process, the GTX 1060 delivers GTX 980-level performance and twice the energy efficiency in VR. It consumes only 120 watts of power while driving the latest VR and DirectX 11/12 PC games at blistering speeds."

The 1060 will be available in two variants one will be the OEM variant and the other will be the founders edition (which will directly be available from Nvidia).
