Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 MSI OC 3GB Performance Review

A mid to low level graphics card, the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI OC 3GB is found in budget machines nowadays, struggling to meet AAA system requirements.

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

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI OC 3GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. 442 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI OC 3GB is running Far Cry 6 and delivering weak performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 23 frames per second. Comparing this to Forza Horizon 5 which is getting playable results, where it averages 30 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Battlefield 2042, which is running at 12 frames per second.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI OC 3GB at 1440p with Far Cry 6, which got a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 46 FPS, Medium: 36 FPS, High: 25 FPS and Ultra: 18 FPS. We then checked out Forza Horizon 5 which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 60FPS, M: 48FPS, H: 32FPS, U: 23FPS. And another popular game was Battlefield 2042 that returned L: 24FPS, M: 19FPS, H: 13FPS, U: 9FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 1060 MSI OC 3GB is going to struggle to keep a solid FPS, but a modern game could have a few options tweaked to get it playable at this res but on low graphics settings.
