The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 is a great midrange GPU for gaming. After collecting the benchmarks, I’d say the 1060 3GB is one of, if not the best graphics cards for gaming at 1080p. If you’re looking for the best GPU you can get for budget or midrange gaming, the Nvidia 1060 is it.

The card I had for review, the Asus Dual GTX 1060 3GB, comes with a great dual fan cooler. This Asus 1060 requires a PCIe power connector but also pushes great performance. If you’re looking for an Asus GPU, specifically an Asus GTX 1060, the Asus Dual-GTX1060-O3G is a great option.

  1. mid range 1080p? well i play games on 100% maxed out with a 1060…

  2. I saved up 500 for a custom low end build, but these fucking miners are killing me, the cheapest fucking ram I could buy is 120$$, I honestly hope these miners die

  3. I think still worth it, i mean isnt xbox one x using something equivalent to amd 580 for 4k? And if gtx 1060 is equivalent to a amd 580, that mean it's still good, but atm, not worth to buy because of miners.

  4. Only if the crypto shit changes. I wouldnt pay more than $275 for GTX1060 6gb.

  5. Love my msi gtx 1060 6gb! it smashes everything i throw at it, but i do see it slowing down now in 2018. bought it on release, it was the second round of them on new egg so i think i bought it in sept. 2016

  6. anyone know how to fix the csgo lag im using a gtx 1050ti i5-6400 overclocked to 3.3ghz 8 ram and windows 10 and i still get this strange lag when i play the game i will have 80 frames (very spiky lag) at the lowest settings on other games such as PUBG i have 120 fps max on the lowest setting. ive tried alot of things like formatting windows, uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing seems to work help pls?

  7. DO NOT BUY THIS ONE.The problem with the 3gb version, is that its a cut down version of the 6gb. 10% cut down on cuda cores and memory. just look at comparisons between the two in yt. lol it even has less ram than the gtx 1050ti -.-

  8. Unless you use 2018 games then you'll never know how it will hold up in 2018!

  9. i wouldn't buy it because of the inflated prices, this card goes for roughly 400 usd now

  10. Can you? Absolutely
    Should you? I would suggest not.
    The reason behind this is because volta is coming this year and if it is like Pascal, then they should come around May-October. These GPUs will obviously have much better performance and even if you plan to buy a 1060, it will be cheaper as it is no longer current gen and likely on clearance and more of these will apprear on the second hand market as some 1060 owners(and owners of older cards) will upgrade to a more powerful GPU and sell their old one. Not only that but at the time of making this comment, GPU prices are fucked up across the board unlike last summer were everything that was not a RX4/570 and RX4/580, were only inflated $10-30 for the most part.

  11. I mean I have a gtx 1050 and I get 70-120 fps in fortnite on epic and high settings, same goes for cluster truck, csgo, and rainbow six siege. So of course it stil holds up, a simple question really. People need to stop making these types of videos. It makes these underrated cards like the gtx 1050 and 1060 look like their not good, but that’s far from the truth. I think you already knew that the gtx 1050 and 1060 are good cards, but you wanted more views so hey.

  12. "Does it still hold up in 2018" meanwhile its been 5 days + testing games from 2012

  13. have you done a 1060 6gb video like this, if so can you link it?

  14. Such a click bait title… why not just say it's a review of the 1060?
    Of course it's a good card to buy, what year are you living on?.. we don't have any new generation of cards. In fact, if we did, it would be even better because of the price drop

  15. why is every so called tech on utube is after 1060 3gb…they jus watch each other channels n make videos?

  16. lol I don't even have these games, n I think my 1060 6gb gpu is pretty awesome on handling some old ass games I love =)
    original counter strike

  17. Cmon i have gtx 1050 2gb 16gb of ddr3 (dunno why ) i7 3770 and i play most games excluding pubg in 1080p high settings on average ofn 72 fps.

  18. Why not? I use a 970 with 4GB that is slighly lower in performance than the 1060 (6GB) and it still works fine… if you play on 1080p. On 1440p i recommend atleast the 1070. I can play almost all games on ultra graphics with 60 fps and if not – there's still high settings that will give me 60 fps. No big deal here, unless you're on 1440p and / or 144hz. 970 will also do 1440p but only on low settings and you won't get 144fps aswell with good graphics settings.
