GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D iChill X3 3GB Game Requirement Analysis
The GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D iChill X3 3GB is an Overclocked variant of the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB which is currently the entry level Nvidia 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 1569MHz and goes up to 1784MHz, 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 2052MHz.
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.
The GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D iChill X3 3GB is a high performance graphics card that will run 2016's AAA games producing 60+ frames per second on most games at very high settings and a 1080p screen resolution. At 1440p this card can maintain the 60+ fps with a slight graphical adjustment down to high/medium settings. The 3GB memory reduction will hamper the high quality game textures this card can deliver, making it less future proof as more GPU memory hungry games are released.
