NVIDIA GTX 1060 Founders Edition Review

The debut outing for NVIDIA’s slimmer GP106 GPU, the GeForce GTX 1060 effectively replaces both GTX 980 and 970 in NVIDIA’s product stack, starting from $249 for partner cards and $299 for the ‘reference’ Founder’s Edition. On paper performance claims are startling, approaching (and even surpassing) the GTX 980 for substantially less outlay, lower power requirements, and with a far more compact GPU core. In contrast to the transition from the 700-series to the 900-series therefore the GTX 1060 represents a substantial performance improvement at this price bracket, and a key upgrade target for those currently rocking an GTX 960 or earlier GPU.
