While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 1060 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 6GB 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 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 6GB is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 1060 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 6GB 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. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 718 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing FIFA 22 getting 88 FPS with the GeForce GTX 1060 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 6GB, Battlefield 2042 getting 19 FPS and Star Citizen predicted to get 54 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran FIFA 22 on the GeForce GTX 1060 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 6GB to see that it got a good set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 176FPS, M: 139FPS, H: 93FPS, U: 67FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Battlefield 2042 which seemed weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 14 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Star Citizen where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were playable at 41 FPS. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 1060 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 6GB is one of the better graphics cards for gaming at this screen resolution. We will see 1440p Ultra and High settings across almost all current games.
