The only GPU I've seen that experiences VRAM issues or notable bottlenecks is the 1060 3GB. This is the 6GB variation so odds are it runs completely fine. The 1060 is more than capable for about 95% of users. If you want 4K or the bleeding edge you're not looking at the 1060 anyway--you're looking at a 1080 Ti.

"... because the games were never built from the ground-up to be DirectX 12 titles, and instead received some patches to have a DX12 mode, which could explain why they run better in DirectX 11. Not to mention that those 'DirectX 12' games are few to begin with. So it would take a while before we have proper DirectX 12 games, and by that time we will get a new architecture anyway."

There, I improved it even more.

They're considering it. Not sure if true, just like a 1060 is or is not a high end card and this whole ad does or doesn't make any sense at all

GTX 1060 is a mid range GPU easily enough for FHD gaming. What's your problem?

Sharing my thought on the catch phrase. By the way it is not midrange, it is low end. The 1070 is mid range.

Idk how ANYone can even contemplate a card. 1060's for instance are running in the 400's, when they barely broke 225 6 months ago. I honestly feel sorry for anyone that needs a GPU right now.

So is Newegg.

Also, I bought this exact card all the way back in December. So I'm not sure why this is just making the news...

Guys, those of us the least bit cost conscious can see the prices are way above where they were. To get the cheapest 1060's you have to go single fan 3GB. Perhaps I wasn't explicit: dual fan 6GB models are way above the low prices they were before the mining boom struck.

The cheapest 6GB GTX1060 on newegg right now is a Dual-Fan MSI card for $259.99. That's a whole $10 more than what I paid for my GTX1060 before the mining craze hit. Not really "way" above where they were. More like slightly above.

Yes, there is some inflation going on, but if you shop around, you can find prices that aren't at ridiculous levels.

My Apologies. Apparently my Newegg filtering on my phone that normally stays in place went missing, and I was looking at marketplace prices in there too.

Since I hadn't visited in awhile it was a big difference. A check of some other sites might have shown me a more realistic picture.

Well you are not completely wrong though. There was quite steep price spikes in June-July and I don't think stocks are still up-to where they used to be. It's quite clear when you look price trend of some popular graphics card i.e. Zotac amp!s.

Nah you can keep them. Price premium over vanilla 8Gbps versions is not worth it for gaming anyway.
