GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA FTW+ ACX 3.0 3GB Game Requirement Analysis
The GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA FTW+ ACX 3.0 3GB is an a Overclocked variant of Nvidia's entry level GTX 1000 performance graphics card, based on the Pascal Architecture. It comes with locked memory of 3GB instead of the full 6GB.
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.
The central unit runs at 1632MHz and goes up to 1860MHz, when Boost mode is activated.
The GPU accesses a 3GB frame buffer of 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 8-pin connector.
GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA FTW+ ACX 3.0 3GB is a high performance graphics card. It is able to run 2016's triple A titles on very high graphics at 1080p screen resolution with a frames per second of 60+. Once the resolution is raised to 1440p the graphics settings may need to be adjusted down to medium/high in order to maintain 60fps. 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.
