Not 3 GB vs 3.5 GB. We have no benchmarks of the 1060 3GB yet. 2 GB vs 4GB does make a difference though... The biggest effect is on minimum framerates. When the benchmarks are out, I hope they test the GTX 970 also and compare minimum framerates. Then we'll know for sure.

I think the 3gb 1060 is still going to be on par or faster than the 480. Only difference from 6gb 1060 is 1 less SM and 3gb less ram. That shouldn't make it >10% slower, I would guess 5-7% under 6gb 1060 outside of vram limited scenarios

You know what's also funny? With the Fury X, one of the reasons a lot of people use to not buy it was that it has only 4GB, at least 6GB would be good. It would not be enough etc.

Enter 1060, 3GB is fine...

Fury X is a
  • Flagship/Halo card, released at $650
  • Aimed at 1440p/4K(CFX) users
  • Competing with a 6GB card(50% more)

1060 3GB is a
  • mainstream card, budget version of 1060 6GB
  • Aimed at 1080p users who only want to spend about $200
  • Competing with 4GB cards(25% more)

Apples and Oranges rolleyes.gif 1060 3GB will go along well with people on 660/760/960 2 GBs, a sizeable performance increase and more vram and at the same $200 price point.

Correction. A 1060 is a 980 class card performance wise. Secondly the 1060 3gb is competing mostly against the 8gb 480 and the 1060 6gb. At it's price point of $200 a 4gb 480 is the better buy.

Honestly I don't think most of us would have even cared about the 3gb model if they simply called it a 1050ti. However, being that it is cut down and is still being called a 1060 it is very deceiving to the average buyer. The bare minimum of 3gb on it is just icing on the cake. At least the 960 was either 2gb or 4gb not cut down 3gb or full spec 6gb.

I have a closed mind about this. If you're seriously considering this card for gaming save for another month and pay $50 for the 6GB. You're making a mistake.

Also, an oc model cutting into the difference further is even more stupid.

Also, if they call this thing 1060 that is complete bs. Should be 1050Ti or something.

I hate this card.

I would say the $200 1060 is probably more competing with the $200 470 4gb and the $200 480 4gb. Do you notice a trend between the three? You get more performance at the cost of 25% less vram.

I would then say the 6gb 1060 that runs $250-290 is competing with the 8gb 480 that runs between $240-280, and to a lesser extent, the 4gb 470 at $240. You get more performance at the cost of 25% less vram.

Also your arguement of 1060 being 980 class card. No. It's on 980 performance level, but not on 980 tier. That logic is what justifies prices trending upward. It is a mid range class card.

Why did you make the comment then tongue.gif
Needs frametime testing and would be useful if 4GB 480 was included as GCN tends to suffer a lot more when running low on VRAM.

What I dislike is how Nvidia is using ugly and odd numbers for RAM. 3GB and 6GB? Why? Why not 8GB and 4GB? Is there a reason?
