Nvidia GTX 1060 Ti rumored to include 6GB of VRAM

 

Nvidia GTX 1060 Ti is rumored to us the GP-104 GPU core and include 6GB of VRAM. This will mean that the GTX 1060Ti will use a modified/locked down memory bus, decreasing from a 256-bit bus to a 192-bit bus. 

We have already seen pictures of Nvidia's GP-104 GPU die, revealing that Nvidia's GTX 1080 and other GP-104 based GPUs will not be making use of HBM or HBM2 memory and instead will be using GDDR5 or GDDR5X memory. 

The GP-104 GPU core was pictured on a Nvidia made PCB, likely Nvidia's reference PCB, showing the GPU being used with traditional GDDR style memory, though at this time we do not know for certain if the new GPU will be making use of GDDR5 or GDDR5X memory.

Current rumors suggest that the lower end GPUs based on GP-104 will be making use of GDDR5 memory with the higher end GPUs making use of the newer, faster GDDR5X memory standard.

At this time, we know that GDDR5 and GDDR5X are very similar architecturally speaking, but right now we do not know if a GPU can be designed that can make use of both memory standards, though it is certainly a possibility. 

Right now very few details about Nvidia's GTX 1000 series of GPUs are known, with Nvidia making no official confirmation of their specifications or feature sets.

I have said this before, I don't expect the 1000 series cards to be world beaters, Nvidia doesn't have to come out with these world beater of cards when there smacking AMD around in the market share.

lol at the 192 bit but i'm not shocked bye it.Quote

TBH I expect this to go down like the Maxwell release.

They released the 980 and said it was the best with just above 780Ti performance with the bigger GPUs coming later.

They will release the 1080 and it will be the best nvidia GPU for a bit but we all know that Big Maxwell will eventually come and Nvidia will release a Titan and a Ti.Quote

While they might have the market lead currently, if they are complacent and try to play too many games AMD could just as easily come out with a complete firecracker of a gpu. I'm not saying anything is certain but they aren't so far ahead performance wise that they can rest easyQuote

The general public seems ignorant of that fact, though, if you look at the market share. Oh, and then there are the absolute cringefests we call comment sections on anything GPU-related posted on either Facebook or YouTube.Quote
