Average Bench: 71.9% (19th of 555)

Based on 200,789 user benchmarks.  Device: 10DE 1C03 Model: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

The GTX 1060 is Nvidia’s third 16 nm Pascal based GPU. It follows last month’s release of the higher end GTX 1070 and 1080. The 1060 has a TDP of 120 Watts and its aftermarket variants are available right away alongside the reference Founders edition. Comparing the GTX 1060 and 970 shows that although the 1060 leads by 12% it is also currently more expensive. Nvidia rushed the release of the GTX 1060 to help retain market share that may otherwise have gone to AMD’s new Polaris based RX 480. Comparing the RX 480 and GTX 1060 shows that for pre DX12 games the 1060 edges ahead by 12%. Due to better hardware compatibility, the RX 480 is able to match the 1060 in DX12 games but this will remain a corner case until most games are optimized for DX12 (likely to take several years). The 1060 has the potential to become a hugely successful card, but that all depends on where prices settle. [Jul '16 GPUPro]

Great GPU, perfect for 1080p, or wetting your feet in 1440. Got a mini on sale, and it runs a little warmer then I would like but there's no thermal throttling, the clocks stay stable so I won't complain. Adding an extra $5 case fan and creating a positive environment inside helped the temps out. If you are considering this then don't hesitate when it's on sale.

This has been my upgrade from my flagship GTX 960. This 1060 6GB is an awesome card and does hold its weight however it's no 1080. If you're a serious gamer start from the Gtx 1070 series. However, if you're on a budget like myself this is the best MONEY for FPS!

Even if this time I went with the Red team. I need to give Nvidia the credit, when it's due. Pascal is was and maintain the lead on this past generation over Polaris.(the refresh was okeyish at best). If I was more cautious with my purchase i should be having this card over 580; for a couple of factors like: price, efficiency and availability.That being said i think that what I should bought is a 1070, without a question.
