GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5X Game Requirement Analysis
GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5X is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Pascal Architecture and a minor revision of the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB.
It equips a cut-down GPU Codenamed GP104 which is a First Gen Pascal GPU amd has 10 SM activated, offering 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 48 ROPs.
The central unit runs at 1506MHz and goes up to 1709MHz, in Turbo Mode.
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5X, through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2500MHz. This compares to GDDR5 on the standard GTX 1060 6GB model, which operates at 2002 MHz.
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.
Benchmarks Indicate that GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5X offers Performance around the Level of GeForce GTX 980. As such, GeForce GTX 1060 is almost twice as fast as GeForce GTX 960.
GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5X is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
