  • NVIDIA Unveils the GeForce GTX 1060


    Brian

    NVIDIA announced it's newest Pascal based GTX 1060 today that is expected to go on sale July 19th for $250 and $300 for the Founder's Edition. The GTX 1060 will feature 1280 CUDA cores, 6 GB DDR5 memory with a boost clock of 1.7 GHz which NVIDIA claims can easily overclock to 2 GHz. In addition, NVIDIA claims the 1060 is on average 15% faster and over 75% more power efficient than the closest competitive product at stock speeds which would be the AMD RX 480. 

     

     

     

     

     

     

    The following is their PR release: 

    Quote

     

    NVIDIA today added the NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 to its Pascal™ family of gaming GPUs, complementing the GTX 1080 and 1070, which have set records for speed and power efficiency following their launch two months ago.

     

    Like the entire Pascal architecture GPU lineup, and with a starting price of only $249, the GTX 1060 has been crafted for speed and optimized for performance per watt. Manufactured on the leading-edge FinFET 16nm process, the GTX 1060 delivers GTX 980-level performance and twice the energy efficiency in VR. It consumes only 120 watts of power while driving the latest VR and DirectX 11/12 PC games at blistering speeds.

     

    The GTX 1060 features 1,280 CUDA cores, 6GB of GDDR5 memory running at 8Gbps and a boost clock of 1.7GHz, which can be easily overclocked to 2GHz for further performance. Across the top gaming titles, GTX 1060 is on average 15 percent faster and over 75 percent more power efficient than the closest competitive product at stock speeds.(1)

     

    GTX 1060 for Every Gamer, Everywhere -- Starting at $249

    GTX 1060 custom boards will be available starting July 19 from NVIDIA GeForce Partners, including ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac. The NVIDIA GeForce Partners represent a global network that will deliver GTX 1060 to gamers in 238 countries and territories. The MSRP will start at $249.

     

    SMP Technology Integrated into Top Game Engines; More Than 30 Titles in Development

    The GTX 1060 supports NVIDIA VRWorks™, a software developer kit that allows developers to intertwine what users see, hear and touch with the physical behavior of the environment -- convincing them that their virtual experience is real.

     

    Included with VRWorks is NVIDIA Simultaneous Multi-Projection technology, which allows the GTX 1060 to seamlessly project a single image simultaneously to both eyes, yielding a 3x VR graphics performance improvement over previous generation GPUs. This allows GTX 1060 users to play VR games with higher levels of detail, without sacrificing performance or quality, for a more realistic, immersive experience.

     

    Simultaneous Multi-Projection is being integrated into the world's biggest game engines, Unreal Engine and Unity. More than 30 games are already in development, including Unreal Tournament, Poolnation VR, Everest VR, Obduction, Adr1ft and Raw Data.

     

    NVIDIA Ansel Integrated into 'Mirror's Edge: Catalyst' and 'Witcher 3'; Available this Month

    The GTX 1060 also supports NVIDIA Ansel™ technology, a powerful game-capture tool that allows gamers to explore, capture and share the artistry of gaming in ways never before possible. With Ansel, users can compose the gameplay shots they want, pointing the camera in any direction, from any vantage point within a gaming world, and then capture 360-degree stereo photospheres for viewing with a VR headset or Google Cardboard.

     

    Gamers will be able to experience Ansel for themselves with Mirror's Edge: Catalyst next week, and Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, later this month. Many more Ansel-enabled games are in development, including Epic Games' Fortnite, Paragon and Unreal Tournament; Cyan Worlds' Obduction; Thekla's The Witness; Boss Key Productions' Lawbreakers; Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's The Division; and the highly anticipated No Man's Sky from Hello Games.

     

    VR Funhouse Available This Month on Steam, Adds GTX 1060 Support

    NVIDIA VR Funhouse -- the company's VR carnival game -- will be available for free later this month from Valve's Steam digital distribution service. Developed on Epic Games' Unreal Engine 4, VR Funhouse will work on GTX 1080, 1070 and 1060 GPUs and HTC Vive VR headsets. It will also be open sourced to developers and artists so they can create their own VR Funhouse attractions.

     

    Special Limited Founder's Edition, Direct from NVIDIA

    The GeForce GTX 1060 Founders Edition board -- designed and built by NVIDIA -- will be available starting July 19 for $299 at www.nvidia.com only. The GeForce GTX 1060 Founders Edition is crafted with premium materials and components, including a faceted die-cast aluminum body machine finished for strength and rigidity and a thermal solution designed to run cool and quiet.

     

    Like the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 Founders Edition boards, a dual-FETs power supply is used to improve power efficiency, along with a low impedance power delivery network and custom voltage regulators.

    For those of you wondering whether the 1060 will come to the notebook, the word is it will and it will be unchanged from the desktop version. The clocks may be somewhat lower but the ROPs, CUDA cores etc should be unchanged.

    This looks a lot better then the 480. I was going to get the 480 at first but then thanks to Brian explaining whats wrong with the 480. Just going to wait for this card. I rather pay the extra cash for this then try to save on money. I know that my pc is getting old (2014). So this will be a good upgrade from a 270x 2gb. when I get to the point to build a new pc ill give the card to my son for his pc. thanks for the this Brian.

    Brian do you know if that's meant to be the flagship for desktop mobile?

    I don't think the 1060 is the flagship model. Pretty sure they will still have 1080.

    Lots of stock and variety currently on Newegg for this card. Zotac has a 9-inch variation for $279 on Newegg.

    The 1060 is probably the best upgrade from a gtx970 IMO. For around 250 bucks for the EVGA SuperClocked version, you get a whole lot of card for a very low price. Also, for those using a projector and still at 1080p resolution, it's a no-brainer! Will run everything maxed out at 60fps! Heaven!

    After downloading the latest driver on my MacBook Pro, I am not being able to upgrade my iOS as it is constantly showing iPhone Error 4013, although I managed to fix the issue by changing the USB ports the problem still appeared when one of my friend wanted to upgrade his iOS but did not get fixed even after changing the ports, any solutions?

      Who can help me with modding and getting my 980M working?
      I replaced the M6100 that was originally in the laptop with a 980M but I can't seem to get it to work. I keep getting Code 43
      the Hardware ID : PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D7&SUBSYS_15CD1028
      I heard i need to modify and INF file but i have no experience with it

      I have spent a little time in the past few days looking around this site. I would love for someone to point me in the right direction to a forum that has information that could help me out with my problem.
       
      I have a:
       
      Alienware M17XR3 
      Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
      Intel I7-2820QM 2.3
      Bios InsydeH20 Version 1.0 A12
      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M
      (4x) 4 GB Ram
      samsung 2.5" 256 SSD (SATA3.0Gbps)
       
      It has been an amazing machine for the last 10+ years. Minor issues, nothing that an Alien Respawn could not fix, till now! On battery power it works just perfect.  Then I plug it in and it's all OK until I try to do anything, and then the screen goes white. The screen sometimes goes yellow, sometimes blue, but mostly white screen. It will do nothing until I do a hard reset (holding the power button till it turns off and turn it back on) with the power unplugged.  If the power is not unplugged then it will go through boot up to windows swirling dots then go white again. If I plug it in and do nothing I can charge it, unplug and continue what i was doing. I have tried a lot of solutions bouncing around the internet, and thought I was having a DC Jack connection issue (replaced the ac/dc power adapter, then the motherboard). I get a better connection now but with the same white screen result. I stumbled into this forum and I'm hoping to find solutions to my issues.  Then upgrade like so many others have.
       
      Any ideas, comments or suggestions welcome.
       
      Thank you in advance!

      So AMD is back and in a big way, let us know which products you're most excited about and plan to build. Personally I have a 5950X, ASUS Dark Hero X570 motherboard, and soon an AMD 6900 XT GPU. First time in a very long time for an all AMD build!
