PRODUCT INFORMATION:GEFORCE GTX 1060 JETSTREAM RGB 6144MB GDDR5 PCI-EXPRESS GRAPHICS CARDThe GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card is loaded with innovative new gaming technologies that make 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 amazing, class-leading performance that opens the door to virtual reality and beyond.

The GeForce GTX 1060 just like 1070 and 1080 supports SMP, this gives the 1060 twice the VR performance of a GTX 970 in supporting titles, making the 1060 ideal for Virtual Reality and headsets such as HTC Vive and Oculus Rift taking gaming to a whole new dimension.

GeForce GTX 1060 is the upgrade many have being waiting for who are on older ATX power supplies with only 6-pin PCI-E connectors, due to the ultra low 120W TDP of the 1060 means you no longer need to upgrade your power supply to accomodate this hugely powerful GPU and as low as a 350W power supply is absolutely fine. So upgrade today and get a massive performance boost along with all the latest and innovative gaming technologies such as DirectX 12.


Features:
- 6GB GDDR5 onboard memory
- 16nm FinFET
- Palit own design with extreme over-clocking capability
- NVIDIA Pascal architecture
- Innovation JetStream Thermal Design

No I wouldn’t bother personally

It will be faster. Check some benchmarks vs 970 and you can judge for yourself that gain is worth investing or not.

Nope, not really. If you want a significant performance bump then you'd need a 1070, but I guess it depends on what games you play, and at what resolutions. I am assuming you use it for games?

Agreed
one of the best coolers out there, but it's huge. It covers almost 3 slots

Similar-ish performance but your heat and energy output should be a lot lower if that kind of thing bothers you. As others said I wouldn’t bother right now. Skip this gen and go for 11/20 series if/when it turns up.
Ordered to upgrade my 670, cheers OP

I don't think it is fair to say that it has similar performance. It is faster than 970 in everything you throw at it. Also 6gb vram vs 3.5gb. 1060 6gb has comparable performance to a gtx 980.

Check these comparisons.

Price is OK if you need one now.
Wait till end Sept otherwise

I mean 'same ballpark', it's not a total decimation was probably what I should have said and not worth the upgrade, IMO, at least I wouldn't personally. For the money you would want more performance I think, especially at this current time when we are literally just waiting for the new ones.
It's so weird to think that I got this at launch TWO YEARS AGO at the same price :O cryptocurrency has really screwed things up for gpu prices huh?

Yes that is a good point. Upgrade may not make sense from a close performer like 970.

Yeah, but for the difference, you'd be disappointed you just dropped £240 on this 'upgrade'.

GPUs; still overpriced when consider the Xbox One S package you can get with games & controllers thrown in for £199. I know it's a 900p machine, but still.

With only two players in the market, and with the bitcoin thing, GPUs are just extremely, extremely poor value currently.

I have a 670 as well and looking for a upgrade but I think upgrading the whole thing is needed as my cpu and ram may bottleneck it.

What is your cpu?

Pretty hard to bottle neck a GTX 1060 unless you are playing at 720p on a really poor AMD FX 8350 or something similar. If you have an i5 2400/2500(K)/3570/4570 or one of hte i7 equivalents then you will not have any issues, then if you are at 1080p using higher graphical settings, the GPU will be the bottleneck.



Also for the guy who was asking about the 970 to 1060, here's a nice graph.

Dump £230 less than 5% performance increase, complete waste of money. August-October time you'll get the new GTX 1160 which is going to be basically a GTX 1070, for £250, so if you look at that graph again, then it's worth it.

I have a i5 3500, was thinking about just a new card. Now I may just get the whole thing as my PC is 6 years old now.

I assume you mean i5 3540/3570 etc. if so unless you are buying a GTX 1070, then you are not going to be held back by your current system, except in a few select games. My advice if you haven't already, get an SSD, put a clean install of Windows 10 on it, and get all the up to date drivers, get rid of any bloat that exists on your system and you'll be surprised how capable it is.

Not much has happened between 2011-2017 with CPU's and it's only going forward that you'll see the this change due to the recent release of mainstream 6-8c chips. I'd hold off until next year if you are changing the whole thing, as you'll have, new Intel CPU's, newer AMD CPU's, new Nvidia GPU's and cheaper DDR4 RAM pricing, so basically, you'll end up getting something that will last another 6 years, rather than buying now and it lasting 3 years, and it will cost you less, or the same but with much more performance.

may think about the ssd and clean Windows as I think I will need it, I am just running on Win 7 now.
The only reason is when playing games like Far Cry 5, new assassin Creed etc, it seems like it is maxing out my GPU and CPU a bit (GPU temp 84C) and the driver crash sometimes even I am on 900p or even 768p.

So you mean get a SSD and a cheaper card or just stick with it with just getting a SSD? Will installing games in SSD improve the performance? (no loading time, but fps and more stable)

Built a Ryzen 5 rig at the end of last year - complete refresh. Have been waiting for GPU prices to become more sensible
An SSD might improve things like texture pop-in and loading times, but not framerate

A clean install of a new OS, on a new fast SSD will help, since a lot of background tasks that may be currently running will cause your system to slow down when gaming, updated drivers and the fact Windows 10 is faster in most new games than Windows 7 now. You'll also benefit from a generally more speedy system in day-to-day tasks, with an SSD, but other than loading times it's won't improve games too much.

As for your higher temps, open the system, give it a good clean, if you are proficient you could also strip down the graphics card, and apply some new thermal paste on to it, that should help if the card is thermally throttling lowering the performance you should be getting in the first place.

None of this will outperform a new card, but it really is a poor time to buy and these are things you can do for free, alomst free, or a small outlay on the disk + Windows key from eBay.
I got something similar for £249 about 3 weeks ago... prices are finally coming down!

This. If you've managed so far with a 970, you'll make it through the next 3 or 4 months.
Might actually buy one at that price

Yea. For anyone that already own a graphic card in the performance tier of the AMD R9 290 series or the Nvidia GTX970, nothing is really a worthwhile upgrade unless going beyond the level of the AMD RX580 or the Nvidia GTX1060.

I mean we pretty much had this level of performance available to us since over 4 years ago, and quite frankly the performance jump that even cards such as 1070 and 1080 offer seem rather pathetic considering their asking price.

no,
Note there's a mandatory £10 DPD Next Day shipping charge on this item
I guess it might be time to upgrade my R9 270...
