Nvidia showcases a GTX 1060 3GB GPU at a Chinese Press conference

Nvidia has showcases a GTX 1060 3GB GPU at a Chinese Press conference, though the GPU, in reality, looks a lot more like a GTX 1050 Ti.



Read more on Nvidia's GTX 1060 3GB.

Higher model number = higher price.

Yeah, but you cannot deny that this is being very dishonest to consumers.

Nvidia for you.
It should be called the 1050ti, that I agree with. Makes no sense other than the fact they can charge more for the "60"

The problem here is that 3gb is no longer enough for an upper mid range card, even if the 1060 erm - 1050ti is the low end of the stack, that is still where it stands. As of this generation I refuse to buy a card with less than 4GB of VRAM.

How/why should it be an 1050 Ti rather than 1060?... Sorry, I don't get it

Because it has less cores? Did you read the article? It's not a 1060 with just 3GB of vram. It's a "1060" with less SMX units and 3GB of memory.

In other words it's not a 1060. At all.

They're doing it again. They misled customers with the 970 and they are doing it again now and it will bite them on the ass. People will see the 6gb 1060, then see the 3gb one and assume they are getting the same card for less money with less VRAM.

Hiding things is becoming the norm for Nvidia. TBH they treat their customers with such contempt that I'm not surprised they can't get a foothold anywhere else.

No one is misleading anyone, oh because nvidia are doing it that makes it bad!? Cough! AMD! RX480 comes in 2 flavours too... Like I said no one is misleading or falsifying information, it's all in the open. Now had nvidia just released the card and said nothing then hell people should scream and shout.

No one is lying to you
No one is forcing open your wallet
Products have labels
If people can't be bothered to read or watch reviews or know what they are buying, well that's their own fault.

The RX480 comes with different amounts of VRAM, thus, they are both RX480s. The 1060 comes with two different amounts of shaders, meaning they are different cards. It's like releasing the 1080, then releasing another card that isn't as good and calling it the 1080 also.

Do you think Nvidia will point this out to every one then? like they did with the 970 memory issue?
