Today we found something a bit more interesting as the arrival of the GP106 GPU (aka the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060). Here we will talk about Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 First Look, GTX 1060 Specifications and What’s New in Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060. Thanks to a database entry on Zauba, there has been found something new information regarding NVIDIA’s mainstream targeted GTX 1060 graphics card. According to the entry found by the folks of WCCFTech this is the absolute first confirmation that the GP106 is going to end up in a mainstream consumer format (it is thought to power the Drive PX2) very soon but it also contains another twist. The entry details a graphics card based on the Pascal GP106 GPU core, which is also thought to power NVIDIA’s Drive PX2.

The Nvidia’s Geforece GTX 1060 comes with double bus width support to its predecessor for a total of 256-bits worth of bus width. As same as available to the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 graphics cards from Nvidia.

Nvidia Gefoce GTX 1060 spotted on Zauba – supports a 256 bit bus with high density GDDR5 memory.

While there’s not abundant additional info that can be gathered from this, it is definitely fascinating, if the GTX 1060 does so feature a 256-bit memory bus, then you can probably expect a large increase in performance compared to its forerunner from that improvement, and the architectural enhancements from Pascal alone. Not to mention the smaller 16nm finFET manufacturing method that will improve the potency of the cardboard to the purpose that it’s going to not even need associate external power connection. All of that along with the reduced price compared to the GTX 1080 and 1070, would make the GTX 1060 a terribly engaging card to the overwhelming majority of gamers.

Of course, this should all be enamored a grain of salt. While We’r certain we’ll no doubt have way more solid data concerning the GTX 1060 within the returning weeks, NVIDIA has yet to unleash their flagship GTX 1080 and the slightly less powerful GTX 1070 that square measure to be discharged on twenty seventh and tenth of june.
