Average Bench: 54.1% (59th of 630)

Based on 339,044 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]

very nice value for money card but there is an issue on extended hdmi cable. It can't power it, i had RX480 that is almost similar in specs and the cable was working properly, also it works properly on my 1080ti... In PUBG i experience fps Drops that is not ok cause it supposed this card should be the first that will be up to date with compatibility and etc because of its market share..

For high fps gaming, this card is great. Of course, there might be some very specific, unoptimised games for which 3GB of ram won't do very well, so if you're not sure if you play/are gonna play those games, make sure to read some more in-depth reviews about it.

Awesome GPU for users who wants decent 1080p 60fps gaming but were so budget constrained that even spending little more penny put them off their budget or aren't willing to replace their 450W or lower PSU with higher wattage one or more quality one. 3GB of GDDR5 VRAM may leads to bottleneck if the game wants or uses more than 3GB of VRAM.

OK-ish performance, but the 3 gigs of VRAM really limit its abilities. Instead, get a 1660 ti if you can afford one.

Got this GPU, can run almost all games on max graphics @60fps 1080p if not it will be fine on high. It's only issue (for its pricepoint) is the lack of video memory. Meaning anything higher than 1440p will most likely destroy it. Definitely not a bad card if building a budget 'eSports' based gaming build as it runs most fps and mobo smooth. But stuggles with high end games like ghost recon: wildlands at anything above medium settings @1080p.

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)

I thought I was buying the cheapo because of the present market, I had wanted a 1070. I plugged this guy up and 60-90 fps in my favorite games (in 1080p) and was completely happy.
