The GeForce GTX 1060 is an NVIDIA GPU.
This GPU is average at gaming with a score of 20% in our PC benchmark.
The GeForce GTX 1060 has 6 GiB of memory. When choosing a GPU, plan ahead and select a model with enough memory for your needs. High resolutions such as 4K require significantly more memory than 1080p as there is more data to display on the screen.
In terms of clock speed, the GeForce GTX 1060 GPU core runs at a frequency of 1708 MHz. A clock speed is the frequency at which the GPU updates. A higher speed means more processing can happen per cycle. This is useful only when comparing cards of the same generation, as other architectures may process more or less per clock.
As for rendering API support, the GeForce GTX 1060 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.5 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 has a TDP of 120W, this is the amount of heat energy produced by the chip as a byproduct. The higher the TDP, the more heat is produced.
