Nvidia has finally unveiled their RX480 killer to go up against AMD’s RX480, competition is tough here with the competitive pricing of the GTX 1060. The GTX 1060 is meant to go head to head with AMD’s RX480 for the sub-$300 market.
AMD was locked and loaded with their missile launchers to ensure 10x stock compared to the GTX 1080 shortage drought. We could expect the same from Nvidia as they have a hell of a competitor on their hands to beat. The card will be available globally for $249. According to Nvidia’s leaked slides which showed how Nvidia was targeting the RX480, the GTX 1060 promises big improvements in performance on paper. We’ll have to assess how the card actually performs in real life.
The card comes in 6GB of VRAM rinning at 8GB/s with a maximum clock speed of 1.7GHz and to top off, comes with 1280 CUDA cores. According to the specs, we could suggest that the GTX 1060 will have 4.4 TFLOPs of compute power. All running under a single 6-pin connector.
People do have to remember that TFLOPs isn’t the only factor to consider let’s see how much the GTX 1060 satisfies PC Gamers to get some attention in its favour.
