NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 pictured
This picture has just emerged at Reddit. It supposedly shows reference design of GTX 1060, a new Pascal based graphics card that is expected to hit the market shortly after Radeon RX 480.
This card lacks translucent window from GTX 1080/1070 series, but it shares the overall design with higher-end cards. It even looks like the same blower-type fan is used.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 will most likely use GP106 GPU with at least 1280 CUDA cores. Earlier rumors suggested that GTX 1060 might get 6 GB GDDR5 memory and 192-bit memory bus.
GTX 1060 will compete with Radeon RX 480. Whether that’s a fight for the best price or the number of frames per second, we don’t know yet.
According to Benchlife, NVIDIA is planning two models, 3GB variant with GP106-300 GPU and 6GB variant with GP106-400 GPU.
