Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Performance Review

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 1060 GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games.

GeForce GTX 1060 is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2021 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 1060 game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 622 games in the list.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Star Citizen will get 54 FPS with the GeForce GTX 1060, Resident Evil 8 getting 35 FPS and Dying Light 2 predicted to get 30 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the GeForce GTX 1060 will run the upcoming game Star Citizen to a playable performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 108 FPS, Medium: 85 FPS, High: 57 FPS and Ultra: 41 FPS. Another game tested was Resident Evil 8, L: 70FPS, M: 56FPS, H: 37FPS, U: 27FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Dying Light 2, wih estimates revealing L: 59FPS, M: 47FPS, H: 32FPS, U: 23FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1060 is a reasonable choice for most modern games at 1440p, but you may encounter some need to adjust graphics settings down from Ultra to High in some cases to improve gaming stability.
