GTX 1060 Benchmarks And Custom GPUs Leaked
Nvidia’s latest GPU offering for the mainstream gaming market, GTX 1060 is just a day away from official launch and there seems to be no end to the rumor mill regarding the performance as well as various different models available from Nvidia’s partners.
VideoCardz got their hands on some benchmarks of GTX 1060, paired against its direct AMD rival RX 480, GTX 1080 and AMD’s R9 Fury. Benchmarks are from 3D Mark Benchmarking tool’s latest 3D Mark Time Spy upgrade. While the benchmarks don’t really mention which version of GTX 1060 is used and with latest drivers or not but the results are still heart lifting.
Two test setups were used in the benchmark, i7 6950X and i7 6700K. In the DX12 benchmark with Async turned On, the GTX 1060 achieves a score of 4166 compared to RX 480’s 3909.
The GPU also managed to achieve an average of 28 FPS on 4K and 89 on 1080p in Just Cause. In the case of Overwatch, the average on 4K were 42 while 113 on 1080p.
VideoCardz also got some new look on GTX 1060 GPUs by Colorful and Gainward. The Gainward cards have a sleek design, one 6 pin power connector and the Phoenix model has a red and gold finish that gives it a look similar to MSI GPUs while the regular Gainward GPU is all black. Both models feature a twin fan design for cooling.
One of the GPUs from Colorful, GTX 1060 U TOP, is the second fastest Colorful card. It has a base clock of 1594MHz and boost of 1809MHz. The card features a custom PCB design with 5+2 phase IPP power supply and dual 6-pin connectors. The card also features a triple fan design and a button on the I/O bracket to enable factory overclocking.
The other GPU, X TOP, has improved clock speeds of 1620MHz for base and 1847 for boost while rest of the features remain the same. X TOP also has a different cooler shroud and heat sink.
