10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D iChill X3 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 Inno3D iChill X3 is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D iChill X3 game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2022. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 734 games in todays list.

A GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D iChill X3 card at 1080p is predicted to see a reasonable frame rate when running Star Citizen on Ultra - 55 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Back 4 Blood which is 59 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular FIFA 22 performs on this hardware, which gets a strong 90 FPS.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D iChill X3 performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Star Citizen and predict it will deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 111 FPS, Medium: 87 FPS, High: 59 FPS and Ultra: 42 FPS. We then checked the performance on Back 4 Blood to see if that runs well. It was reasonable with a 45 FPS at Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D iChill X3 running at 1440p is certainly a good graphics cards for this increased screen resolutions. It can confidentantly get High or Ultra graphics settings across almost all current games at 1440p.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D iChill X3 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D iChill X3 in your PC? Upgrade time for this GPU is currently placed at 2 years

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D iChill X3? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D iChill X3 would be the 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti which meets 971 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 48% better performance. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 40% better and can meet 960 of their recommended requirements.
