10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

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

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

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 3GB where we look at the bigger games played in 2022. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 392 games in the list.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 3GB is running Days Gone and delivering reasonable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 45 frames per second. Comparing this to Forza Horizon 5 which is getting playable results, where it averages 29 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Resident Evil 8, which is running at 29 frames per second.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Days Gone which delivered playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 91 FPS, Medium: 71 FPS, High: 48 FPS and Ultra: 34 FPS.

GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 3GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 3GB is currently the entry level ASUS Nvidia GTX 1000 performance graphics card, based on the Pascal Architecture. It comes with locked memory of 3GB instead of the full 6GB.

Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed P106-300-A1 which is a first gen Pascal GPU and has 9 SM activated, offering 1152 Shader Processing Units (the GTX 1060 6GB version offers 1280 SPU), 72 TMUs and 48 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1506MHz and goes up to 1708MHz, when Boost mode is activated.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 3GB frame buffer of GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2002MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 3GB is capable of playing most modern game system requirements at high graphics settings. The 3GB version is normally around 5% worse than the GTX 1060 6GB full fat version in terms of sheer processing power. But its the 3GB memory reduction that will hamper the high quality game textures this card can deliver, making it less future proof as more GPU memory hungry games are released.
