GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.
Lets look at the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2021.

The GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB graphics card is predicted to return a reasonable performance on Star Citizen at 1080p of 56 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Star Citizen on the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB and predict it will get a playable set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 112FPS, M: 88FPS, H: 59FPS, U: 42FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Dying Light 2 which we predicted will be playable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 25 FPS.
