Product Showcase


The GeForce GTX 1060 takes advantage of Pascal 16 nm FinFet architecture, and with 4.4 billion transistors, 1,280 shader/stream cores, and 6 GB of GDDR5, it was a rather nice product and decent successor to the GeForce GTX 970 and competing with the AMD Radeon RX 470/480/570/580.


The GPU empowering the product is called the GP106 GPU, which is Pascal architecture based. It has  1,280 shader cores, while texture filtering is performed by 80 texture units. 


The reference cards have a 120 Watt TDP, 75 Watts is delivered though the PCIe slot, then 75 Watts through the single 6-pin PEG (PCI Express graphics) power connector. If you look at the lower left (it's a bit hard to spot) you can see an actual single 8-pin connector), that's 150 Watts + 75 Watts = 225 Watts available
