NVIDIA Unveils The GeForce GTX 1060

NVIDIA today added the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 to its family of gaming GPUs, complementing the GTX 1080 and 1070.

Manufactured on the leading-edge FinFET 16nm process, the GTX 1060 delivers GTX 980-level performance and twice the energy efficiency in VR. It consumes only 120 watts of power while driving the latest VR and DirectX 11/12 PC games at blistering speeds.

The GTX 1060 features 1,280 CUDA cores, 6GB of GDDR5 memory running at 8Gbps and a boost clock of 1.7GHz, which can be easily overclocked to 2GHz for further performance. The GTX 1060 supports NVIDIA VRWorks, a software developer kit that allows developers to intertwine what users feel with the physical behavior of the environment.

Included with VRWorks is NVIDIA Simultaneous Multi-Projection technology, which allows the GTX 1060 to seamlessly project a single image simultaneously to both eyes, yielding a 3x VR graphics performance improvement over previous generation GPUs.

The GTX 1060 also supports NVIDIA Ansel technology, a powerful game-capture tool that allows gamers to explore, capture and share the artistry of gaming. Gamers will be able to experience Ansel for themselves with Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst next week, and Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, later this month. 

Here is a quick update regarding pricing – MSRP is INR 22,999/- for GTX 1060 base edition.
