NVIDIA launches the GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB

NVIDIA has launched its GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB video card without much fanfare. The card has been in the news for a few weeks now and even underwent a limited release in China so we can say with much confidence that there are no surprises here.

So as expected the new GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB video card comes with the GP106 GPU on board but features fewer CUDA cores compared to the GTX 1060 6 GB version. The newcomer has 1152 CUDA cores, 72 TMUs and 48 ROPs as well as a 192-bit GDDR5 memory bus. As a comparison the GTX 1060 6 GB has 1280 CUDA cores and 80 TMUs. The memory in the GTX 1060 3 GB runs at 8000 MHz, while the GPU operates at 1506 MHz (1708 MHz Turbo). The card targets gamers still using Full HD resolution and sells for around USD 199 – USD 229.

The GTX 1060 3 GB is now available from MSI, EVGA, Inno3D, Zotac and other companies making NVIDIA-based video cards.
