The cheapest out of the MSI gtx 1060s. Not bad for the money and free delivery.

practically the same cuda cores as GTX 970 + 2GB extra.. nice

i want a blower version

just got a gtx 960 in a new system looking to upgrade it to one of these maybe evga sc version

hot

For 6gb its a good price. Was researching and because all 1060s are overclockable to the same point, and the ones with double fans are pretty much identical in cooling, you should just go for the cheapest option in a manufacturers lineup. All you are paying for is pre overclocking.

I admit I love how the founders edition looks but why on earth would you want a blower version? Recalling some of the reviews the blower version would reach 85°C whereas this reached a maximum of 67 and that's at stress test levels, which I just noticed is on the review link the OP has included

Bought! Can finally wave goodbye to my ancient gtx 260

2.5gb extra good price

Great price and would be going for it myself if I had not just bought the LG Ultrawide freesync monitor that was on here. Kind of locks me into AMD for the time being.

EVGA sc 1060 has better fans, no coil whine

Does not work like that anymore this is better then the 970 almost on par with the 980 basically nothing in it.

​because of small form factor g20

do you believe this would work then? temps inside the case be affected?

When will these cards cost £200?

Hopefully Christmas time there might be some deals pop up

Just Wondering

reddit.com/r/n…sc/

It's impossible to guarantee that someone's specific GPU/PSU setup won't have coil whine. Although it's often possible to fix it by maxing out the card for a few hours.

Glad to hear your one didn't have coil whine, though.

i know, BUT if you read my post i was on about Cuda cores + xtra gfx ram

One heatpipe, this is the modest gtx 1060 oc so far, check the review here:

If you want a 1060, I'd say the ASUS Turbo card is pretty decent. There's also a small few other companies that make mini versions that have blower-like fans (e.g from Zotac, EVGA). If you want a 1070 or 1080, there's the ASUS Turbo or the MSI Aero.

Keeps heat out of the system and 85c is not even hot, your GPU will run happily at up to 105-110c.

​evga sc or asus turbo? ive been looking at them both. would you think a 1060 is worth it from a 960? im pretty happy with the 960 playing wow at 2560x1440 on quality 7 most things on high or even ultra
Edited by: "wildswan" 30th Sep 2016

Good card, I've got the armor oc edition and can easily get over 10'000 in 3dmark with a mild overclock and an i5.

The question of 'worth it' or not is hard to answer as it's personal.

However, the difference between a 960 and a 1060 is huge.

techpowerup.com/rev…tml

It's, on average, well over twice as fast as the 960.

The 1060 beats the 980 and is around 15-20% slower than the 980ti. It's a great card and it shouldn't even be compared to the 960, full stop.

It's a difference price bracket and a different performance bracket.

I upgraded from 960 to a 970 the 970 has so so much more power , I was playing medium/high settings 1080p on the 960 and the 970 just blitzes everything at 1080p on ultra and a lot of games at 1440p too, and some stuff on 4K at medium settings providing you turn off MSAA

So the 1060 would be a massive improvement in my opinion

smaller cases make the blower version a better option

Juste gone up a tenner

Thanks. Useful info.

I'm also considering a 1060 but a blower version due to space limitations in my X51 R2. I think this would be a nice upgrade from the 960 I've currently got in there? Was thinking of getting a 970 and since two of the ports on my 960 have gone, I really do need to get something to replace it. 970 or 1060?

Gone as in HDMI/DVI blown ports ? oO

Worth while upgrade from a R9 285? Debating but its still a lot of money to just drop like that X)

Sadly yes, mini-HDMI and DVI gone, and it's out of warranty - only DP works now. It's quite a common issue apparently - you have the same issue?

joe94

When the pound regains some of its strength against the US Dollar - so if Trump wins in the USA and the currency investors start to panic that could be around the end of the year!

I always see reviews on how well these perform for 1080p and 4K etc, but how good are they for VR? The RX 480 is pumped for VR use but I don't see it mentioned for these

Surely these cards are made in East Asia so if the American dollar falls in value, thereby making the pound stronger against it this will have no affect on the cost of East Asian imports?

It's faster and will be even faster if and when developers start to use the hardware SMP features.

No, the Pascal cards start to throttle down clocks at around 82-83c. A card like this will hold its performance better, there's no question about it. That's assuming your case is adequately vented.

Looks a good deal, shame it has gone up £10, I thought about getting it but went for this instead:

ebuyer.com/753…-oc

I think they're both about the same from what I have read.

Ordered an evga GTX 1070 FTW for £420, am I crazy oO

Any of theses cards come with a game remember my 7950 did?
