NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB Image NVIDIA GP104 Image
The GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB is a performance graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in December 2016. Built on the 16 nm process, and based on the GP104 graphics processor, in its GP104-140-A1 variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The GP104 graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 314 mm² and 7,200 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked GeForce GTX 1080, which uses the same GPU but has all 2560 shaders enabled, NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB to reach the product's target shader count. It features 1152 shading units, 72 texture mapping units and 48 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 3,072 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 192-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 1506 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1708 MHz, memory is running at 2002 MHz.
We recommend the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1920x1080.
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB draws power from 1x 6-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 120 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x HDMI, 3x DisplayPort. GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 250 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 199 US Dollars.
