Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Performance Review

This GeForce GTX 1060 3GB graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

GeForce GTX 1060 3GB is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2021. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. The GeForce GTX 1060 3GB can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 395 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

A GeForce GTX 1060 3GB card at 1080p is seeing a reasonable frame rate when running Days Gone on Ultra - 45 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Far Cry 6 which is 22 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular FIFA 22 performs on this hardware, which gets a good 79 FPS.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB ran Days Gone to a playable performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 91 FPS, Medium: 71 FPS, High: 48 FPS and Ultra: 34 FPS. Another game tested was Far Cry 6, L: 44FPS, M: 35FPS, H: 23FPS, U: 17FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on FIFA 22, which returned L: 158FPS, M: 125FPS, H: 84FPS, U: 60FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 1060 3GB is a suitable graphics card for this larger screen res. In some cases we might expect some graphics option tweaks down from Ultra to High to help improve FPS stability when gaming at 1440p.
