Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1060 is a powerful higher mid-range graphics card that offers excellent performance and is priced under 300 dollars. This is one of the best affordable graphics cards that you can buy for high-end gaming at 1080p and 1440p. GeForce GTX 1060 is powerful than the GTX 1050 Ti by a good margin both in real world gaming and synthetic benchmarks.
GeForce GTX 1060 is built on the latest Nvidia Pascal Architecture that ensures maximum performance with lower power consumption. It also offers the best Virtual Reality (VR) gaming performance as compared to other older mid-range cards in this range. GeForce GTX 1060 comes into two memory variants, one comes with 3GB GDDR5 and other one comes with 6GB GDDR5.
The number of CUDA Cores in both these variants is different. 3GB one has 1152 CUDA Cores and 6GB one has 1280 Cores. The difference in 128 CUDA cores and 3GB memory does make a bit of difference in games making the 6GB one a better choice. The recommended power supply for GTX 1060 is 400W which is decent considering the power these cards possess.
