NVIDIA GTX 1060 Specifications Leaked


It has been 2 days since AMD launched their new card, the RX 480, but to spoil AMD’s fun NVIDIA has announced their new card, the GTX 1060. AMD faced numerous leaks – most of them true –  and now GTX 1060’s specifications have also been leaked.

Here are the leaked specifications:

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060
Graphics Processing Unit Pascal GP106

According to leaked slides obtained by VideoCardz, Nvidia’s GP106-based graphics card will pack 1280 CUDA cores, a 192-bit memory interface, a GPU boost clock of 1700MHz, and comes in VRAM variations of 3GB and 6GB, but it’s worth mentioning that one of the sources says it’s configured with 4GB and 8GB, similar to AMD’s Radeon RX 480. This makes sense, as the GTX 1060 is assumed to be Nvidia’s RX 480-killer in the mainstream marketplace. I believe Nvidia will aggressively compete with AMD when it comes to budget.


There was also a leaked slide which shows that GTX performs a lot better than RX 480 in both standards gaming and Virtual Reality.

Here is the leaked slide:


GTX 1060 will launch in July and it’s rumored that it may release on 7th of July via Livestream. So guys what do you think who will win this battle: The Red Team or The Green Team?
