Average Bench: 72.3% (14th of 544)

Based on 98,988 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]

I have the Gigabyte GTX 1060 Windforce 6GB. I run it at a +185 mhz offset for a 2088 mhz peak clock and have the vram clocked at 9600(!) mhz. It's totally stable with only a 15% jump in voltage. The temp hardly ever peaks over 62c, the fans are pretty quiet, and I gained a ton of performance.
