NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Graphics Cards
Entry Level Price – High-End VR Experiences With The GeForce GTX 1060 And Single Pass Stereo
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 marks the third entry into the 10 Series line-up from NVIDIA. The 1060 graphics card is an entry-level GPU but you wouldn’t think it in operation. Offering GTX 980 performance in virtual reality gaming, the GTX 1060 hits the wallet-friendly price point with a headshot, giving excellent price to performance value. Based on Pascal architecture, it is designed and optimised for VR headsets and applications, bringing smooth, amazing Vive and Rift experiences into the entry level market. This is made possible with NVIDIA Single Pass Stereo technology. Traditionally, VR applications have to draw geometry twice -- once for the left eye, and once for the right eye. Single Pass Stereo uses the new Simultaneous Multi-Projection architecture of NVIDIA Pascal-based GPUs to draw geometry only once, then simultaneously project both right-eye and left-eye views of the geometry. This allows developers to effectively double the geometric complexity of VR applications, increasing the richness and detail of their virtual world.
Made For The Latest And Greatest Games
1080p and 1440p gaming has never been so fluid at such a low price point. The GTX 1060 comes to live on high refresh-rate monitors and smashes benchmarks on all the latest games in 2016 including Overwatch, Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, Doom, Paragon, and many more. Despite the GeForce 1060 being an entry level GPU in the GTX 10 Series range, it is hugely capable of powering through demanding games with solid framerates and is the perfect upgrade for you gaming PC if you’re on a graphics card which is a couple of generations old. This is the video card to bring you into the present and through next year without breaking the bank.
Small Form Factor – Perfect For ITX And LAN PC Systems
The GTX 1060 is incredibly power efficient and cool running, using only 120W under load, enabling the graphics card and in turn the cooler to be much shorter than usual. It clocks in at around 6.5-8.5 inches long, depending on the manufacturer and usually down to the length of the heatsink & cooler. This means that these cards can be used in the smallest of M-ATX and mini ITX cases and because they’re incredibly efficient at handling heat, you won’t run the risk of overheating your gaming PC in the heat of battle (pun intended). This is the LAN graphics card of 2016 and packs plenty enough punch to run all of the latest games on high settings with silky smooth framerates.
