ASUS Intros GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Phoenix Graphics Card

ASUS introduced the GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB Phoenix graphics card. Designed with low cost in mind, this card is 18.3 cm long, and combines a custom-design PCB that draws power from a single 6-pin PCIe power connector, with a simple monolithic aluminium fan-heatsink cooler. The heatsink features a copper core, which dissipates heat to an aluminium block with spirally projecting fins; which is ventilated by a single 80 mm dual ball bearing fan. The GPU is clocked at NVIDIA reference speeds of 1506 MHz core, 1708 MHz GPU Boost, and 8.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. As the 3 GB variant of the GTX 1060, the chip features just 1,152 CUDA cores. Display outputs include two each of DisplayPort and HDMI connectors, and a DVI port. ASUS didn't reveal pricing.

joke of a card, why they would still sell 3GB cards mid-2017? it's barely enough to play new games at medium settings, soon you'll have to lower them down to low, RX 470 4GB is by far a better choice

Isn't "Phoenix" branding already used by Gainward?

@microsista GTX 1060 3 Gb outperforms RX 470 4 Gb and even RX 480 4 Gb ;)

That isn't how it works.

In today's world it's all about customization. 3GB may not be enough for you, but are plenty for people like me.

what i dont like is that they are not saying on box that it has less shaders+tmu´s.(but thats not asus alone-nvidia says what to and not )
for the not tech savvy it seems like only 3gb versus 6gb

You are saying that 3gb model card can not play any modern game on high at 1080p ? If it had 4gb then it could ? You know shit about this.

I wish they sell this sort of cards w/out plastic with smaller cooler if possible and in a stupid plastic bag w/out anything so i can pay 150 dollars for it. $200 is still too much for me.
