Earlier this month, Nvidia officially announce the GeForce GTX 1060 gaming GPU which as company claims will offer up to 3x the performance of it’s predecessor the GTX 960. The GPU is now up for sale and will set you back at $249.
” Built on the same 16nm FinFET process as the aforementioned GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070, the GeForce GTX 1060 offers a generational leap in performance-per-Watt efficiency, requiring only 120 Watts to power the latest games and experiences on desktops and in Virtual Reality. Onboard there are 1,280 CUDA Cores, 6 Gigabytes of 8Gbps GDDR5 memory, and a Pascal-architecture GPU with a 1.7GHz boost clock. And with a quick bit of overclocking through easy-to-use tools, the GeForce GTX 1060’s GPU can be taken with ease to 2GHz.”
There is also a founder edition of GTX 1060 which Nvidia is selling for $299, the price difference is just due to the reason that this edition is built using “premium materials and components”.
