While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor 6G OC is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p.
GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor 6G OC is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.
Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor 6G OC is at running the more popular games of 2021. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 741 games in todays list.
Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a weak frame rate from Battlefield 2042 with 20 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Grand Theft Auto VI which is predicted to return a playable 31 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular FIFA 22 which we saw getting a strong 89 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 predict the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor 6G OC will run the upcoming game Battlefield 2042 to a weak performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 40 FPS, Medium: 32 FPS, High: 21 FPS and Ultra: 15 FPS. Another game researched was Grand Theft Auto VI with predictions of L: 62FPS, M: 49FPS, H: 33FPS, U: 24FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on FIFA 22, which returned L: 178FPS, M: 140FPS, H: 95FPS, U: 68FPS at 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor 6G OC, this is a reasonable choice at this screen size. You can always tweak modern game graphics settings to help you get a better High graphics setting experience at 1440p.How many years will the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor 6G OC graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor 6G OC in your PC?
