Just a couple of hours before the rumored official paper launch for the Geforce GTX 1060, a set of leaked slides have revealed the final pieces of the puzzle, the price and the availability date.

According to fresh slides leaked over at Videocardz.com, the new Nvidia GTX 1060 will be available worldwide on July 19th with a price starting at US $249. While it is still not clear if the US $249 MSRP is for a rumored 3GB or 6GB version, this is still a great price for a mid-range graphics card, especially if Nvidia's "performance of the GTX 980" claims prove to be true.

As detailed in the earlier leaked slides, the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 packs 1280 CUDA cores and works at a GPU Boost clock of 1710MHz. The rumored 3GB version is not mentioned so we are only sure that we will see a version with 6GB of 192-bit GDDR5 memory clocked at 2000MHz (8.0GHz effective). The Geforce GTX 1060 has a 120W TDP and needs a single 6-pin PCI-Express power connector.

Just as it was the case with earlier launched Geforce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 graphics cards, the Geforce GTX 1060 will also be available as a special limited Founders Edition version which will be priced at a US $50 premium, at US $299.

Official reviews should be available later today, so we will finally have a chance to check out its real-world game performance.

At US $249/$299, Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 will certainly put a lot of pressure on AMD's Radeon RX 480, marking the beginning of the mid-range GPU wars.

One 6-pin power connector - ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh (jk)

If this performs on par with the 980 than at $249 for 3GB it's pretty solid. I'm surprised it's not 4/8 though. It makes the 480 seem stronger. I play at 1440p, so having that 4GB does matter. Of course I think the market this card and the 480 are going for is the 1080p anyway.

I wonder how well of an overclocker this is... It may really end up being worth it jumping from a GTX970 to a GTX1060... heck, 6GB VRAM and maybe a 20% performance jump for maybe $100 after I sell my 970...I'll take that.

Yeah, but with GTX 980ti going for under $400 wouldn't it be a better buy getting one of those versus a 1060 6GB?

That would be nice, in Canada this card will be probably around the $400 mark after all said and done sadly...

In light of this, it really emphasis how large of a money grab the "founders edition" really is. If I remember correctly, the whole reasoning for the higher msrp was the premium materials used for the cooler. The founders 1060 is more expensive than the partners cards are going to be, yet the quality of the materials in the founders card are now mostly plastic.
