The GeForce GTX 1060 is already here , the third in the Nvidia family of graphics cards that Pascal is launching as architecture, the gaming revolution and graphic computing.
Full of innovative technologies, the MSI GTX 1060 can do it all. Part of the fault is the aforementioned Pascal technology used to manufacture the GPU, which we will discuss below, its 6GB of RAM GDDR5 and a design that maximizes the possibilities of this device in virtual reality environments in exchange for an efficient energy use.
The GTX 1060 also enjoy the Pascal architecture
The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 G1 Gaming models also integrate inside GPUs manufactured under Pascal, the latest in terms of performance, power and consumption.
Under the Pascal nomenclature we find a new way of structuring the graphic processors that has led Maxwell, the previous architecture, to triple it in scenarios of virtual reality recreations and that has led to the Nvidia series 10 to be crowned as queen indisputable processing with these graphics cards.
Manufactured in 16 nanometers with FinFET technology , Nvidia GTX 1060 GPUs have shown that they can reach much higher speeds without affecting consumption, even reducing it, reaching to integrate 17,000 million transistors, the basic units of which it is composed a processor.
With Pascal it is possible to double and even triple the power in the new Nvidia while enjoying a lower consumption, a property that favors lower temperatures and therefore greater OC capacity.
This Gigabyte GTX has a GPU with base in 1594 and boost to 1809 in its gaming mode and reaches 1847 in the OC Mode when you boosted. Its memory works under a 256-bit interface and makes use of WindForce 2X to cool the board and the core, as well as the rest of the elements, under some Blade fans.
Nvidia Cuda, unrivaled parallel processing
Thanks to the CUDA parallel calculation architecture, the processing of Nvidia graphics is superior and much more optimal than that of its competitors. The 1060 cards take advantage of each of the virtues that this technology offers to distribute the work of processing between the CPU and the GPU to obtain efficient results both in numbers and in energy cost by distributing the tasks in the most optimal way, leaving the calculation for the CPU and graphic processing for the mentioned Pascal-based GPUs.
The advantages, therefore, of CUDA technology is that it allows many tasks in parallel and frees the CPU from work, making it ideal for image editing, photography, videogames, object physics, virtual reality and a large amount of analysis of a large amount of data such as the climate study, biomedicine or research, development and manufacture of new materials.
Compatible with DirectX 12
The latest graphics advancements are under DirectX 12 and the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 G1 Gaming is compatible with the most advanced APIs such as the aforementioned DirectX or Open GL, ensuring unrivaled performance in video games.
6GB GDDR5 dedicated
The triple of memory that its counterpart of the previous generation. The 6036 MB of RAM on this video card will make you mute.
GDDR5 memories are the evolution of conventional DDR RAM. Before the advance of the video game and application requirements, the traditional memory channels were collapsed due to their own architecture focused on offering low latencies. This system has worked for years until the needs of data have been exceeded the needs of a low latency in favor of much wider channels through which to transmit information, this is the moment in which it became clear that a new architecture was needed , a new system to provide all the information that GPUs requested without falling into bottlenecks, thus the GDDR technology was born.
GTX 1060. The entrance to Virtual Reality
The power of its combined CPU and GPU, the use of GDDR5 memory and its compatibility with the latest version of DirectX , make buying a GTX 1060 the first step to get into virtual reality through the big door with a graphics card capable of recreate with great realism and fluency all kinds of scenarios.
A new paradigm of technology opens up before us, virtual reality advances unstoppable and virtual reality glasses are becoming a very real reality, a very important option to consider for all types of applications, from leisure to science, and a of these Nvidia cards is the best way to get into it like never before. Can you imagine it?
Well do not do it, live it. The GTX 1060 at the launch price is a bargain to be placed far below other less powerful competition models, are you ready to make the leap to ultra high definition?
