Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Graphics Card Prices

The GTX 1060 uses a fully enabled GP106 core, and it is available with either 3GB or 6GB of GDDR5. Due to the increasing demand for vRAM in modern games, models of the GTX 1060 with 3GB of RAM are noticeably slower in some titles. The GTX 1060 was introduced at a $250 price point and does battle with AMD's Radeon RX 480 and RX 580 graphics cards.

    glad i bought a 1060 in March (and mostly just to hold me off for awhile). These new post crypto prices are just plain stupid. But I feel more sorry for AMD fans.

    I see a lot of mining rig for sale on craigslist. Maybe people are realizing that mining is more expensive in certain areas? If they can't get rid of the rig, they might just sell it at a steep discount or maybe even just sell parts.

    I don't think you should get rid of your mining rig just yet, I think the government made being a miner illegal in China so that should make it easier for miners in other countries. They just need to wait for the market to rebound.

    Alright, so this is a thing. I guess we are just moving down the product stack. So, 1050 Ti next.

    Also, gosh these prices seem high. Not that they were that great before the mining craze, but I thought the 1060 had rebounded.

    I'm expecting Nvidia Volta in the next few months and I hope that those prices aren't immediately super-inflated.

    Imagine in 2023:

    "Nvidia's GeForce GT 7030 hits the market next week. It offers a slight edge over old power houses like 2017's GTX 1080Ti. Nvidia's MSRP is aimed at $90 but mining economy analysts are predicting prices of upwards to $800. Nvidia announced that the 7030 would follow suit with the rest of the 7000 series and come in "MINING+" and "MINING Ti" varieties

    In other news, the last PC gaming company has gone defunct. Cybersoft claims that the mining economy inflation of video cards has made it impossible to earn any profit margin on their games. This is the familiar story told by dozens of other companies who have closed the doors to their PC development studios.

    'I just wish video card companies could meet demand. We were still developing with Pascal parts from pre-mining economy era' the Cybersoft CEO claims."

    What a strange age we are living in, when the GPU (Gigabyte 1060 6GB Windforce) I purchased October 2016 is now selling 33% higher in September 2017...

    Should have been on the leading edge of the ethereum craze.

    "The GTX 1060 uses a fully enabled GP106 core, and it is available with either 3GB or 6GB of GDDR5... Due to the increasing demand for vRAM in modern games, models of the GTX 1060 with 3GB of RAM are noticeably slower in some titles. "

    Huh ? Did they recall all their 1060 designs and put out new ones ? Research much ?

    1. "NVIDIA decided to reduce the shader count of the GTX 1060 3 GB to 1152 from the 1280 on the 6 GB version. This rough 10% reduction in shaders lets the company increase the performance difference between the 3 GB and 6 GB version, which will probably lure potential customers closer toward the 6 GB version."


    2. As a result of the smaller amount of shaders, the 3 GB averages about 7% slower than the 6GB version. But one thing remains relatively constant. If VRAM was a major issue, we would see drastic increases in the difference in performance between the 3 GB and 6GB versions as we go from 1080p to 2160p ... and yet this DOES NOT happen. So much for the VRAM theory w/ performance gap widening by 0 - 2%

    3 days ago here in Netherlands the gtx 1080 and 1080ti were 20- 40 euros cheaper, depending on the manufacturer . Amd vega doesnt exist here and when it does prices are crazy ( https://azerty.nl/product/gigabyte/3123413/radeon-rx-vega-64-silver-8gb-grafische-kaart-rx-vega-64) you have to see it to believe it.

    I seriously doubt they have done, or would do, a recall/redesign to to make a 1060 3GB closer to a 1060 6GB.

    And in titles like Doom, Hitman, and to a lesser extent, Rise of the Tomb Raider, the 3GB GeForce takes care of itself by running out of memory, even at 1920x1080. If you aren’t careful to manage the 1060’s detail settings, Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1050 Ti sometimes ends up faster thanks to its 4GB of GDDR5.

    Hey, what's the difference between GTX 1060 and 1080? And will the price go down soon?

    Thank you very much, Eli Matzer story Computers Israel http://www.elihai-computers.co.il/

    ...what's the difference between a 1060 and 1080 video card?


    The most obvious difference between these two video cards is the price difference. The GTX1060 is supposed to be selling for roughly $250 where the GTX 1080 sells for $550+.

    The GTX 1060 can play games in lower resolutions at very high frame rates. The GTX1080 was build with more power in mind to keep performance up in high resolutions.

    The GTX 1060 consequently consumes less power to run because comes with less processing resources. The GTX 1080 on the other hand, sucks up a lot more juice.

    How did I do? Does that answer your question?
