This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D Compact 6GB GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games.
GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D Compact 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 Inno3D Compact 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. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 625.
The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D Compact 6GB shows us that Dying Light 2 is predicted to get a playable result of 30 FPS, and then we are seeing Days Gone returning a reasonable 50 FPS while another game on our list is the Forza Horizon 5 which is predicted to get 35 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.
Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Days Gone on the GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D Compact 6GB to see that it got a playable set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 101FPS, M: 79FPS, H: 53FPS, U: 38FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Forza Horizon 5 which we predicted will be playable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 27 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Dying Light 2 where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 23 FPS. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D Compact 6GB is not a bad choice for a larger screen size like this. Some games will struggle though, but with some careful graphic option adjustments in-game you can normally find a suitable visual experience with this GPU at 1440p.How many years will the GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D Compact 6GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1060 Inno3D Compact 6GB in your PC?
