Average Bench: 67.6% (19th of 544)

Based on 37,325 user benchmarks.  Device: 10DE 1C02 Model: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB

The 3GB GTX 1060 follows last month’s release of the 6GB GTX 1060. The 3GB variant not only has reduced memory but Nvidia have also disabled 10 percent of the processing cores from 1,280 down to 1,152. There is no reference edition of the 3GB 1060 but the partner cards are already available (at launch). Comparing the GTX 6GB 1060 and 3GB 1060 shows that the 6GB 1060 leads, on average, by 7% but it is also currently 15% more expensive. The GTX 1060 is Nvidia’s answer to AMD’s new Polaris based RX 470. Comparing the RX 470 and 3GB 1060 shows that for pre DX12 games the 1060 edges ahead by 11%. The RX 470 is able to match the 3GB 1060 in DX12 games but this will remain a corner case until most games are optimized for DX12 (likely to take several years). The 3GB 1060 has the potential to become a hugely successful card, especially if prices drop below $200. [Sep '16 GPUPro]

in most games, the 1060-3g could hit the level of 1060-6g, the best choice for getting a 1060 graphic card if you have limited budget

The #1 best value card you can buy currently. Personally using it for 144hz 1080p gaming


Good

It will be beter if it had 4gb like the rx 4/580 "budget" version (for mirrors edge Hyper settings for example), but for the price is hugely better than the 6gb model (only 6fps on average of improve compared with the "expensive" model, if i was you, I'll think 3 times before buying)
