Average Bench: 71.8% (17th of 546)

Based on 123,086 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.

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.

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!
