For the previous month, Nvidia really let off its load by revealing and launching their first Pascal-based graphics processing units, the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. As more and more users get their hands on these graphics cards, positive reviews come flooding in with regards to the experience. However, it should be noted that both do carry rather high price tags, even for the high and mid-range markets. With rival company AMD teasing the release of their own RX 580, it would seem that the GTX 1060 is not far off from its own launch.
Nvidia GTX 1060 Rumored to Move its Release Date to Keep up With Competition
It has been found that the first batch of photos with regards to the Nvidia GTX 1060 has already been leaked, and the images did show that production has indeed begun ahead of schedule. A report from Digitimes states that the firm is no aiming to launch the GPU sometime in July of this year to directly compete with the AMD RX 480. It should be noted that the launch date for the upcoming graphics card is a month earlier than what was originally expected. However, the company has yet to confirm about the information.
There are even more reports that disclose about the prowess behind the Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics card, and it would seem that it is a further cut down version of the GTX 1080, which would seem like a step below the GTX 1070. The 1060 is going to be shipped with its very own version of the Founder’s Edition NVTTM cooler design. It will have an opaque heatsink window, as well as presumably the same cooling design that can be found with the 1070.
Even while there are information and images that have already been leaked, it does not mean that the Nvidia GTX 1060 is just one card. In other rumors, it would seem that the 1060 will come in two available variants. Interested purchasers can get a 3GB or 6GB VRAM model of the graphics card. For the former model, it would seem that it will be used to directly undercut the AMD RX 480. If it does manage to deliver a performance as close to the GTX 980, then it would immediately make it an even more enticing offering. Nevertheless, if you’re already in the market for a mid-ranged graphics processing unit, it might be in your best interest to wait just a bit more.
