Average Bench: 57.2% (53rd of 627)

Based on 752,541 user benchmarks.  Devices: 10DE 1C03, 10DE 1C06 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]

This is probably the best card for 1080p gaming (at least from Nvidia). Too good, in fact. Be aware, however, that the GTX 1060 is being gimped by drivers as of this message. For now, use the 430.xx series drivers to get the best performance.

It is still a capable gaming card, which doesn't use much power and runs relatively cool. Personally, i had no issue with 6 gb of vram buffer. But i've realized that the bus width becomes a limiting factor, because i get a performance uplift by overclocking the memory and not the core.

Ive been wanting this graphics card for at least a year and a half and today i finally got it and i was so excited.Before this i had a 760 2gb and before that a 750 1gb so this was quite the upgrade.So far ive played the witcher 3 and rainbow six siege and the difference is amazing.The witcher 3 on medium is running at a smooth 70 fps and on high at a smooth 50 fps,but turning off hairworks boosts the fps.Before i had 30 fps on medium so this was incredible.I play rainbow six siege on low because the game is competitive and i like to play on max frames so before i had 100 fps and now i have 150,and i can play on max settings without anti aliasing and have 80 fps.I am so happy i finally got this great card.Its also much quitier than my 760.

Optimal GPU for decent 1080p medium-high gaming. Comes with 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM which is enough for most games if you ask. Only really worth buying if you can't afford GTX 1660 and wants to buy used instead to save some money, or aren't willing to replace their 450W or lower PSU with higher wattage or higher quality one.

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.

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 ok received at best). If I was more cautious with my purchase i should be having this card over RX 580; for a couple of factors like: price, efficiency and availability.That being said, i think that what I should bought is a 1070 to satisfied my needs, without a question.

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!

Easily the most valuable graphics card on the market, in my opinion. My EVGA GTX 1060 6GB SC has so much headroom available running at the factory overclock of 1830 MHz up to my overclock of 2012 MHz with great stability. With the choice of 3GB or 6GB and SC version, it has the options you might need. The money to go up to a 1070 or 1070 TI is too much of a cost/performance boost. To go down in price to a 1050 OR 1050 TI you are going to miss a lot of the performance you would be able to get for a small cost.
