Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 is yet another very famous gaming PC among gamers across the globe. Every gamer wishes to use this particular customizable gaming PC as it provides the best gaming experience. But when a new product launches in the market, people jump into using it. However, it is always important that, before buying any type of a gaming PC. You should look closely on its backlogs and features. Here is a short review of GeForce GTX 1060 I thought you should know.
The Basic Verdict About GTX 1060
Nvidia gave an exceptional jump when they opted for pascal instead of Maxwell in this product. Their new launch GTX 1060 has improved itself in different ways. It is better to say that it has improved by 50% than the previous generation. The device looks quite cool and the price is also negotiable for the gamers. If you are planning to get brilliant performance for 1440p and 1080p, then you can opt for this GPU by Nvidia. Not only that, but it is an awesome overclocker as well while making a match with the GTX 980. But what we did not like is the price of it. It costs the founder price. Along with that, it is not compatible with any SLI as well.
The pascal power of GTX 1060 is worthy enough to get some appraisal. This is based on the manufacturing process of Pascal’s 16 nanometers FinFET. It has two different variants. The first variant is 3GB and the second variant is 6GB. It provides the bandwidth of 8GB/s besides a 192-nit bus. Not only that, but it also features 80 Texture Units, 48 ROPs, and 1280 CUDA cores within it.
Though the GTX 1060 is not much upgraded as the other costly GPUs available in the market, it has a grave issue that you need to handle. The all issue revolves around SLI. When you open up the packing of this gorgeous product, you would be able to notice that the card lacks the usual SLI fingers on it. Now if we compare it with the price, then it would seem that the missing SLI is not a big deal.
But when you would be spending a couple of years with the best performance of GPU, you will notice that the performance is being affected. This would happen due to the absence of the SLI bridge. Not only that, the absence of an SLI bridge would make your titles limited to DX12. This means that you can play only those games which are supported by Microsoft, MDA or LDA. That is why we cannot count on this as a reliable method of increasing performance. There are several other options you can choose from. Thus, you should not limit your mind to a single device.
