NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1060 is the third mainstream graphics cards using their new Pascal GPU architecture, released a couple of months after the GTX 1080 and 1070. This generation is based on a die shrink to 16nm, allowing for a lot more circuitry to be packed into the same physical space used by previous graphics chips. That means a huge boost in performance, making the GTX 1060 roughly equal to the previous-generation GTX 980 - along with 50% more video memory (6GB) and lower power draw.

In addition to its speed and efficiency, the GTX 1060 also has the same under-the-hood improvements that the other Pascal cards feature. Many of these are tailored to boosting virtual reality performance, and this card will set a new, lower price point for NVIDIA's entry level VR gaming experience. In terms of major standards, the 1060 includes support for CUDA, DX12, and NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology. Finally, it supports up to 4 usable display outputs across five physical connections: DVI, HDMI, and three DisplayPorts.

The GTX 1060 is an amazing value card for gamers, handling 1920x1080 resolution great and doing well even at somewhat higher resolutions. It is also the entry-level card in the GeForce 1000 series for virtual reality. The performance it offers for the price is amazing: GTX 980 capabilities for half what that card cost in its day.
