Average Bench: 65.7% (59th of 620)

Based on 249,193 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]

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.

The Nvidia GTX is a great choice for budget gaming if you have extra money to spend on the GPU i would recommend the GTX 1070 since that's the sweet spot to be in to be ready for future games and such if you want a VR ready GPU the GTX 1070 is the choice to go with but with the VR's now have low latency tracking you can still play on a GTX 1060 normally like you would on the GTX 1070 although the

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.
