10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 EX OC White 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 KFA2 EX OC White 6GB is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 EX OC White 6GB. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2021. 746 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 EX OC White 6GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title FIFA 22 and predict it will deliver strong frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 235 FPS, Medium: 185 FPS, High: 125 FPS and Ultra: 89 FPS. We proceeded to look at Days Gone to see how that compared and saw that it returned a reasonable 52 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 EX OC White 6GB by researching FIFA 22 leading us to predict a good performance. Its FPS predictions for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 179FPS, M: 141FPS, H: 95FPS, U: 68FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Days Gone and that was playable. This graphics card delivered 39 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Far Cry 6 which is predicted to get weak results with a 23FPS on Ultra 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 EX OC White 6GB we get the impression that it is a good choice for running modern games at Ultra in this larger screen resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 EX OC White 6GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 EX OC White 6GB in your PC? There is still 2 years of top end gaming left in this GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 EX OC White 6GB

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 EX OC White 6GB? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti which is 48% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 976 games from the most demanding games today. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, which has 41% better performance and can run 967 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.
