NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Rumors, Part 7: New Cards, More Benchmarks

Colorful GeForce GTX 1060 U TOP

As you might know from this press release, Colorful is preparing four GTX 1060 cards. We have pictures of the two most powerful models.

The U TOP is second fastest Colorful card, featuring GP106 Pascal GPU with 1280 CUDA cores. This card is clocked at 1594 / 1809 MHz.  It features custom PCB with 5+2 phase IPP power supply and dual 6-pin power connectors. It’s a dual-slot design with triple fans. The button you can see on the I/O bracket enables factory-overclocking.

Colorful GeForce GTX 1060 X TOP

The X TOP is the fastest Colorful card featuring core clock of 1620 / 1847 MHz. It has the same PCB s U TOP with 5+2 phase design and dual 6-pin connectors. The only differences between X TOP and U TOP are the cooler shroud and slightly different heat sink.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 vs Radeon RX 480 in 3DMark Time Spy

PCEVA published first benchmarks of GTX 1060 compared to Radeon RX 480, R9 Fury and GTX 1080 in the latest installment of 3DMark software, the Time Spy DX12 benchmark.

The first graph shows performance advantage of Async supported hardware. The values presented by PCEVA seems to be quite close to results  posted by other sites. However it is not disclosed what GTX 1060 model is being used in this comparison, so I’m assuming it’s Founders Edition.

The card was tested with two platforms with i7 6950X and i7 6700K CPU. Bear in mind, the graph above only shows graphics scores, while the charts below show graphics score only with red bars. You will notice that the overall score is higher for 6950X for obvious reason, while graphics score seems to be not affected by the use of other platform. It’s a good example why you should always compare GPUs with graphics scores, regardless of what testing platform is used.

Additionally, we have charts published by one of the manufacturers as advertising material. They show 1080/2K and 4K performance in few games (thanks to XDP for translation):

  • Killer 6 (Hitman 6?)
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Just Cause 3
  • Call of Duty 12 (Black Ops 3)
  • Doom 4

We also have Gainward cards to show you. The first one is Phoenix, which to my surprised is triple-slot design. It’s unclear how fast this card will be, but considering how large is the cooler, I think this might be one of the fastest GTX 1060 on the market.

Gainward GTX 1060 Phoenix is equipped with a backplate and single 6-pin power connector.

The second card from Gainward has slightly sleeker design (2 slots, narrower shroud). This is probably more budget-oriented solution.
