[VC]GTX 1060 spotted in Hong Kong - Page 9

post #81 of 199
If the 1060 is competitive performance wise with the 480 I'm hoping it might be:
3 gb - 229
6 gb - 259
Possible 1060 ti? - 299

No sources or inside info, prices adjusted because if Nvidia matches the 480 they'll want you to pay more for it... mad.gif But a likely choice between the 2 for my 760 upgrade later in the summer.

would be cool if 1060 3GB (useless) and a 1060Ti 6GB that smacks 480 silly (even if its $300)


the X60Ti were good cards

Nvidia has been smart keeping the teasing and hyping almost to a minimum with the 1060 which manages expectations while keeping a close eye on what the competition is doing and then BAM! They just hit AMD hard out of nowhere just like the 980 Ti launch.

IMO, regardless of the memory configuration, Pascal's massive perf/watt advantage over Polaris may give Nvidia the headroom to position the 1060 to outperform the RX 480 in the mid-range class in almost every metric.

Raw horsepower is useless if there's not enough fuel to feed it. Case in point: 780 Ti being hamstrung by its 3GB even at 1080p. 4GB really ought to be the bare minimum these days, especially considering the direction PC gaming is taking these days.

I apologize in advance for the awful car analogy. redface.gif

If I were in the market for a mid-range card, I would disregard the 3GB model and go straight to the 6GB model just as I would go with the 8GB RX 480 model over the 4GB one.

I agree that Nvidia shouldn't even bother with a 3GB model in the first place.

The cynical side of me says that in a very twisted way, the 6GB 1060 IS the founders edition. rolleyessmileyanim.gif

I don't think they are going to do a founder edition for the 1060 segment.

They did it for the 1080/1070 segment because there was no competition and their won't be competition till 2017. It was also to allow the clearance of their 28nm products in the same range.

With the 1060, it's directly in line with the rx480. At this point, stealing sales from AMD is just as important as making money. This is because they can afford to take a hit when it comes to profit. AMD can't. If there is one more repeat of Maxwell like marketshare for Nvidia for an entire generation, it might just get AMD to sell their graphic division.

I suspect because the graphic industrial isn't a particularly essential one with all the integrated graphics available, Nvidia might get away with buying their graphic division, and thus be able to get away with a monopoly. Nvidia is being more aggressive against AMD, then when Intel was after they released Conroe.

It's a Machiavellian move, but Nvidia has been very savvy when it comes to their business and some of their moves seem more aimed at hurting AMD than making profit.

You missed my point, which is that while nVidia may not do a founders edition for 1060 (and quite frankly they shouldn't), the 6GB 1060 in spirit serves as the founders edition, since 3GB even for 1080p in 2016 is just criminal.
post #90 of 199
1060 shouldnt be costing anything more than $280, because @ $300 it is getting too close to 1070. 1070 is at $380 for AIB.(not now may be later)

1060 =$280 (performance between 980<-->980Ti?)
1050 =$199 (At RX480)

Darn..... 1050 will be $200 card lol...I am hope is not true.
