GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming 3GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming 3GB is currently the entry level MSI 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 1569MHz and goes up to 1785MHz, 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 MSI Gaming 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 games are released that require GPU memory.
We expect this GPU to return around 49+ FPS at high graphics setting on most modern games @ 1080p screen resolution.
