lovely graphics card for a mid-budget build :)

Palit GeForce®GTX 1060 DUAL 3GB is build with "Dual Fan" and is loaded with innovative new gaming technologies, making it the perfect choice for the latest high-definition games. Powered by NVIDIA Pascal™—the most advanced GPU architecture ever created—the GeForce®GTX 1060 delivers brilliant performance that opens the door to virtual reality and beyond

Honeycomb Bracket 

The design of honeycomb bracket increases airflow by up to 15%, allowing the heat generated from GPU to be exhausted via the honeycomb design bracket. This enables more efficient cooling effects.

Dual Fan

A Dual Fan design offers double the cooling performance, and combined with the 9CM-9CM Smart Fans, heat is effectively drawn away from hot spots.

4k3

With its HDMI and DisplayPort ports, the Palit provides a flawless, jaw dropping experience at Dual 4K monitors.

DrMOS

DrMOS, originally only available for high-end server CPUs, is now available in all its glory in the next generation of Palit graphics cards. DrMOS offers high current circuits, low noise operation, and effective reduction of heat generating.

ThunderMaster

ThunderMaster is a utility program for the graphics card under Windows, and provides you to boost performance of the graphics card and to monitor the GPU information, which will only function correctly in conjunction with your new graphics adapter.

This has lower performance against the 970 on games like Hitman. Why? Because this has 3Gb VRAM while the 970 has (3.5+0.5) 4GB VRAM. I would advise against this for future proofing.

Offering advice on what *might* happen in the future is crazy and daft.

There's no questioning the fact that games are getting larger and requiring more VRAM.

The 1060 is a 980 replacement. The normal 6GB 1060 does this well in terms of both horsepower and memory availability.
This gimped 3GB card should be bought by nobody. Nvidia need to get the message.

both are slower than their Max version. but I would say rx480 is better because of the extra gb in vram

but for the price though? cheapest I can find rx480 is £204.98 from scan. £25 more? for 1gb of gddr5? is it worth it? I wouldn't really know but surely the palit could be oc'd so the memory and clockspeed could match it on performance?

that's up-to you to decide. some old games already demand more than 3gb. gtx 1060 is a faster card for current games than the rx 480 though.

heat added. regardless of which is better for this or that , as far as i can see this cant be had cheaper anywhere else :)

The 3gb 1060 is faster than a gtx 970, minus a gb. The 6gb 1060 is faster or equal to the gtx 980. Remember 3gb and 6gb have different core counts

Who honestly buys a 179.99 GFX card to future proof?

That's such a garbage term when talking budget cards.

No card is future proof. Spend on a budget that suits you for games you want to play, consider replacing GFX cards on a rotation that suits your needs.

I mean, at least you linked the article, but you say "hmm very interesting' as if you are trying to suggest there is a problem.

Hitman has been considered one of the worst designed games, in terms of performance, for all DX12 games.

Also, look at their conclusion.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB - the Digital Foundry verdict

Going back to our GTX 1080 review, we were pleasantly surprised to see how well the old GTX 780 Ti held up on our modern benchmarking suite bearing in mind its 3GB of VRAM. The new GTX 1060 3GB has the same amount of memory but an additional two generation's worth of memory compression optimisations - the end result is that three gigs is indeed enough for top-tier 1080p60 gameplay - as long as you stay away from memory hogs like MSAA (which tends to kill frame-rate) along with 'HQ/HD' texture packs and extreme resolution texture options. By and large, the visual impact of these options at 1080p is rather limited anyway - generally speaking, they're designed for 4K screens.

The 1060 is not the 980 replacement. It's the 970 replacement. It's ahead of the 970, by a hair.

There is no questioning the fact that right now, 1080p, 60fps on high/ultra is absolutely great for the 1060 3gb card.

If that is your budget and that is what you want, this card is the perfect fit.
#19
1060 is a replacement for the 960, surely. The fact that it performs like a 970, whilst using much less power, is testament to the strides made with pascal. The 960 was about £230 for the 2gb version upon release.

As others have stated; I don't think you're buying a mainstream card to 'future proof' yourself. Perfectly reasonable to save yourself £50/£60 and play on ultra settings, as opposed to nightmare. . .

No. The 1060 is the 960 replacement, but a combination of nvidia deciding to bump the price and a terrible exchange rate has pushed it up to 970 prices. It is currently overpriced for its place in the market.

Eh? Bumping the price of the... 1060? Its RRP is $250/$200 for the 6GB/3GB models, compared with $250/$200 on the 960 4GB/2GB, $300/$250 on the 760 4GB/2GB, and $300/$230 on the 660Ti/660...

It's a similar situation with the 1070 - it costs more than the 970, true, but compared with the 770, 670 and 570? The abnormally cheap 970 seems to have thrown everyone's pricing off. :/

am I right in thinking that the 4gb rx480 can be unlocked to 8gb or is this just a myth?

The 960 released at $199 US and £160 UK.

http://www.geforce.co.uk/whats-new/articles/introducing-the-geforce-gtx-960

I mean, you are literally off by £70 quid on your pricing

http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/geforce-gtx-970-980-sep-18-2014-uk.html

The Geforce 970 released at £259.99

I don't know how else I can say it, the 1060 6GB was released as a replacement for the 970 segment.

NVIDIA said this themselves.

The 1060 3gb is more around the 960 price point.

But I agree, it is absolutely reasonable to consider the 1060 3gb version to save yourself 50+ quid. The 3gb card is absolutely a good card and is well priced.
#32
We are going back a few years, but I recall getting a 1GB card to save a few quid. It played all the latest games at the level I wanted, I was happy...for a while. I regret that call very much now, as so many games needed more and more compromise to get playable frame rates. We all have a cut off point with cost, but the saving on this compared to the 6GB is false economy in the long run. Get the best you can afford.

How come this is cold? And how does the 1060 compare to the R9 290?

GTX1060 3GB versus 6GB version, this doesn't just have half the memory, it has fewer CUDA cores as well, so has less processing power than the 6GB version. Whether it's hot or cold is rather based on the price, but that difference is significant.

"the GTX 1060, overall, is a best in class performer, winning seven of the eight benchmarks against AMD products in the same price bracket."

good pull quote from the link above....

for 1080 games it's alright really. I'm still using my MX 675m card (Overclocked) on my iMac... got doom running around 50-60fps on high. thinking about doing a budget build in 6 months or so, just nice to see what's out there for this kind of money. you can still have fun and see some great visuals with a low-mid ranger...
