    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Overclocked to 2126 MHz and Tested in 3DMark Firestrike

    The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 has also been tested in 3DMark Firestrike with an overclock of 2126 MHz which is a significant clock bump over the reference model. We are looking at more than 400 MHz clock!

    The card can also boost higher than its the original boost frequencies around 1911 MHz making it score much better points than the Radeon RX 480 graphics card.

    These Score were from Stock Clocked Reference Cards

    Pascal is a cool calm efficient overclocking Super Hero, Polaris is inefficient Watt Wasting overclocking Zero

    While Nvidia will pull out all the guns to fight the Watt Waster AMD Radeon RX 480, releasing GeForce GTX 1060 as early as July 7th. Nvidia uses the Pascal GP106 core on the 1060 has been configured to boost beyond 1.7 GHz which is impressive. NVIDIA has a massive lead in terms of core frequencies with TSMC’s 16nm FF process node and that shows as their chips are built to clock beyond 2 GHz when overclocked

  • NO GTX 1060 driver yet, which means we'll see even higher scores once official testing begins.

    Leaks! Leaks everywhere! Following the recently leaked specifications for Nvidia’s Pascal-based GTX 1060, a pair of 3DMark Firestrike benchmarks have slipped out reinforcing the belief that Nvidia’s GTX 1060 will outperform AMD’s Radeon RX 480 by about 15 percent. Better still, it looks to be going toe to toe with Nvidia’s Maxwell-based GTX 980 — a card that launched for $549.

    Still, it posted a 1080p Firestrike score of 11225. Compare this to our Radeon RX 480 (8GB) score of 10600.

    Ramping things up to the Firestrike Ultra benchmark (that strains the system with a demanding 4K graphics test), we see a score of 3014, which bests the RX 480 but also challenges Nvidia’s GTX 980 for dominance. Remember that the GTX 980 launched with a hefty $549 price tag. In fitting with Nvidia’s generational leap and price drops compared to the 900 series, the GTX 1060 is expected to launch at $249 to put serious pressure on AMD in the mainstream, sub-$300 bracket.

    But there’s another important factor here: to the best of my knowledge, no one in the tech press even has the GTX 1060 driver yet, which means we'll see even higher scores once official testing begins.

    GTX 1060 hits this month with 980 performance for $249
    It's okay to cry

    The GTX 1060 will be as powerful as Nvidia’s GTX 980 card but only consume 120 watts of power and cost about $249 when it arrives on July 19, the company announced this morning.

    Cards are expected from ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac. Nvidia’s own founders edition of the card will sell for $299.

    The 1060 is built on a new chip called the GP106. Both the 1080 and 1070 use the GP104. The new card features 1,280 CUDA cores, 6GB of GDDR5 memory running at 8Gbps and a boost clock of 1.7GHz, which can be overclocked to 2GHz.

    As with both the 1070 and 1080 Founders Edition cards, the GTX 1060 Founders Edition has three DisplayPorts, an HDMI port and a DVI port.

    "across the top gaming titles, GTX 1060 is on average 15 percent faster and over 75 percent more power efficient than the closest competitive product."

    Just last week, AMD unveiled it’s similarly priced Radeon RX 480. The card sells for $199 for the 4 GB version and $239 for the 8 GB version and our benchmarks showed it outperformed the GTX 980 Ti on some games.

    We’ll be running our own benchmarks for the GTX 1060 and publishing them when that embargo lifts on July 19 at 9 a.m. ET. I’m very interested to see how the 1060 compaires to the RX 480.

    Nvidia also announced today that Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst and The Witcher 3 would be getting Ansel integration this month. Ansel is Nvidia’s built-in feature for capturing in-game screenshots. Support in Catalyst should be live today and The Witcher 3’s support arrives later in the month.

    Finally, Nvidia said that VR Funhouse will be available for free later this month on Steam. The game will work on GTX 1080, 1070 and 1060 cards and with the Vive headset.

  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Official Specifications and Benchmarks Leaked – 15% Faster Than RX 480, More Than 40% Efficient Than Polaris 10

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Leaked – Much Faster Than RX 480, Aiming The Mainstream / Budget Segment

    It looks like NVIDIA will be hitting back at AMD’s Polaris launch with their latest GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card which is aiming the mainstream market. Based on the new Pascal architecture which makes use of 16nm FinFET process, the graphics card would feature incredible performance per watt which will be beyond AMD’s 14nm FF based Polaris 10 GPU which launched a few days back.

    The GeForce GTX 1060 will also be using the reference Pascal display configuration of three Display Port 1.4, single HDMI 2.0b and also a single DVI port. Since this is Pascal we are talking about, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 would feature just 120W TDP and power would be provided through a single 6-Pin connector. This means the card features an even lower TDP than the RX 480 which has a suggested TDP of 150W but can sip more than that as seen in reviews.
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 is Better Than RX 480 in Gaming, VR and Power Efficiency

    The slides also show that the GeForce GTX 1060 is not only faster than the Radeon RX 480 but also the GeForce GTX 1060 while being affordable for every gamer. This means that NVIDIA is taking the battle to AMD in all field whether that be VR gaming or affordable mainstream gaming. The GeForce GTX 1060 is said to be 15% better than the Radeon RX 480 at stock speeds, up to 25% better in VR Gaming thanks to NVIDIA’s Simultaneous Multi-Projection Technology and more than 40% better in terms of power efficiency.

    Dual RX 480 has a TDP of 300W against a TDP of 150W of the GTX 1070; and second, a dual SLI of GTX 1070 scales up by 97% at least, with Pascal and its beefed-up SLI connection that gives Nvidia the multi GPU advantage.

    The efficiency advantage that Nvidia has is massive and undeniable. I would say a Pascal 1060 GP106 with 192 bit memory bus is going to easily match GTX 980 performance or even exceed it while drawing 100w. That is the problem for AMD. Pascal 1060/GP106 will thrash Rx 480 in performance/watt and will clean up in OEM gaming systems and notebooks. I expect AMD to get thrashed even in the desktop retail AIB market. AMD have no hope of gaining market share and more importantly keeping it.

    My little green team (13 years old) bro will go for this, he hates buyer remorse and he doesn't like red.

    If you're a budget gamer wait for super efficient Pascal 1060 for around $250 that has much better performance than Polaris RX480. Pascal 1060 will be released middle of July, then you will be able to compare and not get a bad case of buyers remorse.

    The ONLY Fix to this PCIe Motherboard Flaming Fiasco is to LOWER PERFORMANCE on AMD's Polaris Watt Sucking POS!!!

    The RX 480 has half it's 6 phases linked to the (non-compliant*) PEG connector, and half to the PCIe connector. This is why PCIe current draw increases in lock-step with PEG draw. These are hard links on the PCB. Without a board revision, there is no way to reduce draw on the PCIe card-edge connector without:
    A) reducing total card power usage (i.e. performance cap it lower)
    Or
    B) disable a phase connected to the PCIe connector (if this is even a function available on the power controller) and hope 5 phases is sufficiently smooth power delivery for the card to remain stable

    * To be PIC-SIG compliant, Pin 5 is to be used as a sense pin. AMD have instead used it as a ground pin, shorting it to pin 4 and 6.

  • Faulty Polaris is a PCIE DAMAGING WATT SUCKER!!!

    Doomed AMD SHOULD ReCall ALL Watt Sucking Polaris POS and PAY for Damages

    RX 480 exceeds its 150W target TDP. Furthermore, that extra power draw seems to be coming from the PCIe bus, with the card pulling as much as 90W from its PCIe slot, far exceeding the specified 75W maximum and potentially causing stability issues with certain motherboards.

    The tests, conducted by Tom's Hardware, caused quite the stir over on Reddit. Some Reddit users even conducted their own tests on retail versions of the RX 480, with some (though not all) throwing up similar results. AMD has now issued a statement, admitting that the tuning on certain RX 480 cards is "not optimal."

    While AMD's statement doesn't indicate precisely what's causing the issues with the RX 480, if it is exceeding its 150W target, either something is causing the card to run in the wrong power state, or it's exceeding its power limit and needs to be throttled back. There's some speculation that AMD was simply too ambitious with the RX 480's power draw.

    Yes its true over hyped Radeon R9 390 scores a 7.4 in Steam’s VR Performance Test. Radeon RX 480 achieves a 6.6. An old Radeon R9 290 isn’t far off at 6.5. now you know Polaris is VR Pathetic just Pathetic.

    Debt Doomed AMD wanted to price its Polaris RX480 at $300 Blatantly lying about it being a Main Stream Mid Market GPU. Debt Doomed AMD Polaris RX480 only has the performance of a Three Year Old Factory Overclocked Maxwell 970 that was Main Stream Mid Market Favorite. BUT AS ALWAYS The Main Stream Mid Market performance needs have MOVED UP, VR and NEW GAMES NEED a MORE POWERFUL GPU Solutions, and NOW this level of performance is NOT ENOUGH to meet the demands of what a Main Stream Mid Market, SO AMD was FORCED to SLASH the Price of its Poor Performing Polaris to $200 Dollars.

    NVIDIA's Pascal 1070 has Maxwell Titan Beating Performance and it Only uses 150 Watts, Debt Doomed AMD's Polaris ALSO uses 150 Watts BUT IT ONLY MATCHES the performance of a 3 year Maxwell 970.
    Pascal's SUPERIOR Performance Per Watt Kicked AMD's Watt Sucking RX480 Polaris OUTTA the Main Stream Mid Market and into the Cheap Chip Gutter Gaming Gutter.
