Preliminary specs of GeForce GTX 1060

Preliminary specs of GeForce GTX 1060

After NVIDIA confirmed the tech specs of the GeForce GTX 1070, there’s one huge question looming on the horizon – what will the mid-range Pascal-based video cards bring to the market? Fortunately it can be said that we now have the answer and it will most likely satisfy you.

The first preliminary specs of the coming GeForce GTX 1060 or GeForce GTX 1060 Ti have been seen in India and if we believe this information, the GTX 1060 will bring 1280 CUDA cores and the same 256-bit memory bus that the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 come with. The card will be powered by GDDR5 memory, instead of GDDR5X, but we cannot complain here, since the obviously more powerful GTX 1070 also comes with GDDR5 memory on-board. The GTX 1060 will also come with lowered clock speeds but we do not have information on this topic just yet. In addition this card will come with 4 GB or 8 GB of on-board memory.

Given that the GTX 1060 features fewer CUDA cores than the GTX 1070 and the GTX 1080, the card will need less power as well so it should lack an additional power supply connector. Yet there surely will be models that will feature it to ease card overclocking and given that the card will come with a 256-bit memory bus (a first for a mainstream video card) means that the GTX 1060 will surprise with some very nice performance levels.

The GeForce GTX 1060 is expected this summer.
