Nvidia has officially announced their GTX 1060 GPU for $249.99

 

Pascal is finally coming to the mid-range market with the Nvidia GTX 160 GPU, offering the same gaming performance as the GTX 980 at a reduced price and with much lower power consumption. 

Nvidia has designed their Pascal architecture with one thing in mind, performance per watt, offering what Nvidia say is 15% more GPU power and 75% more power efficiency than the nearest competitive product.

What the GTX 1060 offers if the same as every other Pascal GPU, VR-ready performance with Simultaneous Multi-projection support and amazing power efficiency but this time at a more budget friendly pricepoint and more PSU friendly TDP. 

Custom GTX 1060 GPUs will become available to purchase in stores for the price of $249.99 or higher on July 19th, with aftermarket variants coming from ASUS, EVGA, Gainward, Gigabyte, Inno3D, MSI, Plait, PNY and Zotac.

You've got it wrong dude. Nvidia have announced their 1060 FE for $299. The $249 figure could be anything. 3gb? MSRP? hah ! look what happened to that MSRP they put on the 1080. They're pretty much creeping toward £700 now.Quote

Looking forward to the benchmarks. Did Nvidia confirm that the card doesn't support SLI? For me that's kind of a dealbreaker, because adding another card down the road was a major way to address the lack of future-proofing of mid-range cards. Hoping that Async Multi-GPU becomes more of a thing down the road I guess.Quote

The founders edition is just a way for nvidia to increase the prices of their cards without people getting to mad, because "you can get it for x amount", what they dont tell you is that the next generation will have the founders price, as the stock price.
So that pretty much means, 15% more performence for 50% more money compared to RX480 if we are to believe the nvidia numbers. Sounds like a deal to me tbh.Quote

It doesn't have a SLI finger from the look of it. I wouldn't worry about that any way, SLi as we used to know it is totally dead. The last five or so big game titles don't support it which is where we are headed.

As for the benchmarks? 980. It's pretty much just a 980.

Hopefully Microsoft can lead the way with their supposed better support for Implicit Multi Adapter and we can start using more than one GPU soon. SLi fingers won't matter to that, in theory any GPU should work with any other GPU.

Having said that though if these were cheaper and supported SLi they could have been good. Sadly Nvidia have put a stop to that mid range SLi fun years ago. Last decent combo was the 460.Quote

He doesnt have it wrong, thats the price that we have been given directly from Nvidia.

Any price increases you can blame on Brexit because its all because of the weak pound.Quote
