Nvidia GTX 1060 Founders Edition Review



If the GTX 1070 proves too rich for your blood then maybe the GTX 1060 is the card for you. Promising GTX 980 performance for an affordable price, we take it for a spin.

£275 too spenny. Is that from Nvidia's site for the FE?

Nice card but it literally comes down to the pennies with this and the 480s. Literal pence between them.

Edit. Went to Nvidia no date. I predicted this but from what I was hearing I was all prepared to be wrong. So I will stand by what I said - Vapor launch.

Mindfactory has stock for five aftermarket cards.
It starts at 279€ in germany for an acceptable card, which is a tenner more than an 8GB reference 480, if i were in the market i'd probably get that over a 480. In a week or two they'll probably be down to ~260€. But there are also cards like the Strix OC for up to 350€, that's just too much money.

Yes but there is some BS that goes with it.

"Limited stock - max 1 per household! *Direct deposit payment not recommended as stock is likely to sell out before your payment clears*"

Does that apply to all cards? On mindfactory there is no limit, they only have a limit of two cards per household on FE cards for the 1070/1080. They don't have the 1060 FE, but i guess it's a FE thing because they are limited production?

I don't know if I'd call a low-end card 980 performance.
