The cut-down GTX 1060 may actually be the GTX 1050

The cut-down GTX 1060 may actually be the GTX 1050

The information that NVIDIA was planning a GeForce GTX 1060 version with 3 GB of VRAM and a cut-down GPU surprised many people around the world and introduced a degree of uncertainty on the market – how will you recognize the cut-down GTX 1060 from a “regular” GTX 1060 with 3 GB of memory? Well, it turns out that you may not have to deal with this issue.

In a surprising twist new online information now claims that the cut-down GTX 1060 will appear in December and will carry the GeForce GTX 1050 product name. The card will keep the 3 GB of GDDR5 memory and the cut-down GPU, though. NVIDIA has done the same in the past – the previous generation GTX 960 and GTX 950 offered the same story – the GTX 950 came with fewer stream processors but the same amount of memory. Well, the story of the GTX 1050 will not be the same but it will be awfully close.

It is unclear how much the GTX 1050 will cost but we are sure more details are on their way to us.
