NVIDIA unveils the GeForce GTX 1060, VR-ready for $249

NVIDIA has introduced a more affordable graphics card in their Pascal family GPU called GeForce GTX 1060, the third in the line following the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080.

Built on TSMC's 16nm FinFET process, the GTX 1060 promises GTX 980-level performance and twice the energy efficiency in VR. It consumes only 120 watts of power while driving the latest VR and Direct X 11/12 PC games.

The GTX 1060 features  1,280 CUDA cores, 6GB GDDR5 memory running at 8Gbps and a boost clock of 1.7GHz, which can be easily overclocked to 2GHz for improved performance. NVIDIA claims that GTX 1060, across top gaming titles is on average 15 percent faster and over 75 percent more power efficient than the closest competitive GPU in the market.

The GeForce GTX 1060 custom boards will be available starting July 19 from NVIDIA GeForce Partners, including ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac. MRSP is $249. At the price, the GTX 1060 is priced slightly higher than AMD's Radeon RX 480, but NVIDIA says you're getting more power for the extra cost. In India GTX 1060 will cost Rs. 22,999.

The GeForce GTX 1060 Founders Edition board -- designed and built by NVIDIA -- will also be available starting July 19 for $299 at www.nvidia.com only.
