NVIDIA’s mid-range GeForce GTX 1060 video card will be presented this fall, which is not that far away and the rumor mill is working at 100 per cent right now. According to the latest rumor the card will arrive with 6 GB of memory and judging from the GTX 1070 here we are talking about GDDR5.
The GTX 1060 will be based on the so-called GP106 GPU and will have two versions – the first one will sport 4 GB of GDDR5 memory, while the second one will come with 6 GB under the hood. The memory bus width has not been leaked just yet but there are sources that claim the GTX 1060 will have a 128-bit or a 256-bit memory bus although a 192-bit bus is also a possibility. As to performance the card is expected to sit between the GTX 970 and GTX 980, which will make its price a crucial factor in selling it.
The GTX 1060 will likely arrive in September but this remains to be seen.
