NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Specifications Leaked, Faster than RX 480

Published: 1st Jul 2016, 09:46 GMT

Looks like we got some GTX 1060 information little early..

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 features 1280 CUDA cores, power of GTX 980

Here they are, first specifications of GeForce GTX 1060. This card features 1280 CUDA cores and 6GB of GDDR5 memory (so quite possibly 192-bit interface). The boost clock is somewhere around 1700 MHz, which gives us maximum compute performance of 4.4 TFLOPs.

NVIDIA rated GTX 1060 at 120W TDP, which is less than Radeon RX 480 (150W). According to leaked slides GTX 1060 will be faster than Radeon RX 480 in terms of performance. It will also be 1.4x more power efficient. However be advised graph values start at 0.8.

In terms of design, it seems that the leaked picture was quite accurate and this is really the new (Founders) design.

More importantly GTX 1060 will launch in July, and the fact that we have these slides already, could further suggest that the rumored launch date is true (7th July).
