Improved NVIDIA GTX 1060 Will Be Introduced Soon [Rumor]
The good news is milling around that an improved NVIDIA GTX 1060 is rumored to be released soon equipped with the GP104 GPU. This goes without saying that five variants are expected to be released as the improved graphics from NVIDIA.
According to reports, the company’s Pascal GP104 GPU is used at present in the three high-end graphics cards: GTX 1070, GTX 1070 Ti, and GTX 1080. It is known that the Pascal-based cards have GTX 1080 Ti, GTX 1080, GTX 1070, GTX 1060 6/3G, GTX 1050 Ti, GTX 1050, and GTX 1030 graphics cards. All of these, according to Expreview, belong to GP102, GP104, GP106, and GP107 respectively.
Expreview said NVIDIA is busy with the knife how to use GP104-300 GPU, used at present with GTX 1070, in GTX 1060. The rumored new GP104-150, however, will not be at par with GP104-300 chip’s performance.
The improved version of NVIDIA GTX 1060, according to sources, will only hit the public in China. Some users are left wondering why a limited release for the highly-anticipated improved graphics cards from NVIDIA.
This information may come as a letdown for most but it makes sense from the company’s point of view. NVIDIA is said to be doing away with all its Pascal-based GPU stocks before it will roll out its new GTX 11 series graphics cards before the year ends.
It can be recalled that when NVIDIA released the GeForce GTX 1060, made sure it was loaded with the new innovative gaming technologies calling it “the perfect choice for the latest high-definition games.” It was touted as the most advanced design of all GPUs ever made opening new possibilities to the virtual world and even beyond it.
One of the positive reviews of the Pascal-based card had pointed out its affordability, which all PC builders on a tight budget had been waiting for. Despite the stiff competition from its rival – AMD’s Radeon RX 480 – NVIDIA’s card came out swinging.
