GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA FTW GAMING ACX 3.0 Game Requirement Analysis
EVGAs GeForce GTX 1060 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0 card is a full size dual fan performance graphics card, based on the Pascal Architecture.
It equips a GPU Codenamed P106-400-A1 which is a First Gen Pascal GPU and has 10 SM activated, offering 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 48 ROPs.
The central unit runs at 1637MHz and goes up to 1865MHz, in Turbo Mode.
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2002MHz.
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.
Benchmarks indicate that the GeForce GTX 1060 offers performance just a bit lower than the GeForce GTX 980. As such, GeForce GTX 1060 is far faster than its predecessor the GeForce GTX 960 and even AMD's new Radeon RX 480 is comparative to this card.
GeForce GTX 1060 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal gaming Performance.
