i thought you would compare the strix 1060 with dual 1060?
Arvin Cula (1 year ago)
Th1s1sm4ry yea thats it, i would say its a pretty decent card, but i believe it's only available in the asia. They like bring the old dc2 cooler back for the 1060 6gb card, and look just like the 960 in the video
Th1s1sm4ry (1 year ago)
is this what you got? https://www.asus.com/au/Graphics-Cards/STRIX-GTX1060-DC2O6G/ Whats your review on it?
Arvin Cula (1 year ago)
Th1s1sm4ry yea, i actually just bought the 1060 6gb strix, that looks exactly the same model as the 960, kinda confused actually since it doesnt have a lot info about it.

Hello great video :).I want to upgrade my pc and i thin I am going to buy asus dual 1060 6gb.I will compine it with intel core i5 7500.Do you think this cpu is enough??Thnanks :)

Better buy a RYZEN 5 1600.

Because Dual is noisy cooler

Martin's PC Tips You mean buy better cooler for cpu?(i5 7500)?

Yes CPU IS good, or I5 7600K but if you have more money, buy gpu with better cooler, for example strix

xSebaceanZx (1 year ago)
That sounds better. Just a tip: Don't waste your money in a i7-7700k and its Z270 Mainboard. Just buy a 6700k and a MSI Z170 Mainboard. I't s the same CPU if you don't use its integrated graphics card. i7-6700k >> 4.0 Ghz (Boost 4.2 GHZ) vs i7-7700k >> 4.2 Ghz (Boost 4.5 Ghz). It's the same processor! like a cheaper i7-6700k Boosting to 4.5 GHZ. You can upgrade the z170 bios to make it working with i7-7700k processor like a z270 but cheaper.
HanneleTäti (1 year ago)
xSebaceanZx i was gonna buy palit so i said i have palit but i bought gigabyte windforce and im gonna buy i7 7700k
xSebaceanZx (1 year ago)
Palit is shit. I'm sorry. It's just my opinion. It's in the second division. Btw your CPU is making you a big bottleneck.

im going to buy the 3gb version but great video man! I dont need 6gb just to play games maxed out with 100 fps. With 3gb i can still play modern games at 1080p with 60-80 fps, maybe more and thats enough for me :)

DougisLive (10 months ago)
AcerHDGaming I agree with you don't listen to everyone else, 3 GB is perfectly fine with 1080p I have the same card and I've tested every single game and they never use passed even like 2gb and games like Grandtheft auto can only push this card to its limit. And vram ever becomes an issue, then all you have to do is turn down the Settings slightly I'm in the United States and the 6 GB version cost $70 more, and I'm on a strict budget, it just isn't worth it.

GTX 960 Strix 4GB is better then GTX 1060 6GB just with fabric overclock gtx 960 strix have better performance and you can do double over clock (fabric and your overclock) safety like you get more fps for better price then 1060

Kawaii (1 year ago)
my only problem is both cards have versions with different memory amounts yet you give the 1060 that slight advantage of having more vram:/ should have used 4 gig 960 or 3 gig 1060

Hello guys. I have this issue ( i really dont know if it is an issue ) I downloaded Msi Afterburner. And those are the numbers that i get from this GPU. http://imgur.com/eqAmxGC Are they ok? It shouldnt be more higher? My card is the ASUS Dual Gtx 1060 oc 6gb
PRIZIXZ ́ (6 months ago)
You are good man you maybe even can oc more look up on yt how to oc your gpu. The best way is too use a benchmark and turn up the core clock to 10+ and add 10+ again untill you see wired things happening. If you do turn down -10
Black Eagle (1 year ago)
yes , they are okay

I would do the same if I was building the rig I am building to game, but since I am using it to render large CGI scenes, I need the extra memory so that it does not crash, although I see what you mean.
Lycidas (1 year ago)
Martin's PC Tips why? I've seen benchmarks and there are almost no differences! I'm on a budget so I'll take this one and save some money here and invest in some other parts like more ram or a better cpu cooler.

JamieCSGO (1 year ago)
I have the exact same card, 6GB. But getting between 40-70 FPS on GTA where you get around 80-120. Probably to do with my CPU since I'm running 8350 @ 4.2GHz / 4.0GHz, whereas you're using Skylake i7? Would this be true? I was looking to upgrade the cooler which should stop some of the FPS drops as it does get quite heated (CPU) and then I should be up by about 10 FPS, but by changing the CPU would you expect my FPS to significantly increase like it does for you here? Thanks

+Martin Babjak 1:03 *Imortant to NOTE:/know* Does ASUS Dual support Vulkan API and not only DX12 and OpenGL 4.5 (at least according to the box and their own web-site, vulkan is left out)? That is a difference to someone not wanting to run Win10 or play Doom as Doom uses Vulkan. Also DX12 is always only avalaible in Windows 10, not 8.1 or 7. Alot of users and gamers preffers Windows 7 and not the spytool called Windows 10. I would like to get ASUS Dual as it would estethically match the Z170 Asus Motherboartd and Stormstryker case but not at the cost of no Vulkan and only DX12. Link to their web-site https://www.asus.com/Graphics-Cards/DUAL-GTX1060-O6G/ See how it only specify DX12 (not even dx12.1) I quote: "Dual series of GeForce® GTX 1060 is equipped with DirectX 12 to squeeze more graphics performance from the CPU and prevent GPU bottlenecks." Under https://www.asus.com/Graphics-Cards/DUAL-GTX1060-O6G/specifications/ There they also only specify OpenGL®4.5 If that is just an oversight and wrong info, well then ASUS need to add Vulkan support in the info for clarity. Someone claimed to me that OpenGL4.5 is the same as Vulkan but I find many articles claiming they are not and even compare OpenGL performance vs Vulkan performance. Here is one such article http://www.dsogaming.com/news/doom-benefits-greatly-vulkan-vulkan-versus-opengl-performance-comparison/ I quote: "id Software has just released a new patch for DOOM that adds support for Vulkan. Naturally, we went ahead and tested some scenes that were performing poorly under OpenGL 4.5. And we are happy to report that id Software has nailed it as DOOM runs way, way, way better under the Vulkan API." I'm not as Tech Savvy as probably You are, so some clarity on this would be appreciated as it definetly affects my upcoming purchase.
HolyOrderofDragons (2 years ago)
I've been digging some more. Found this on Nvidia site. "Windows driver version 368.69 and later and Linux driver version 367.27 and later provide full support for Vulkan." "NVIDIA provides full Vulkan support and functionality on NVIDIA GeForce and Quadro graphics card with one of the following Pascal, Maxwell (first or second generation) or Kepler based GPUs: GeForce 1000 Series: GeForce GTX 1080, GeForce GTX 1070, GeForce GTX 1060" So that says all GTX 1060, 1070 and 1080 should support Vulkan API. Still strange that ASUS don't specify that on their own site when other GPU manufacturers do.
HolyOrderofDragons (2 years ago)
Other Graphic cards specify all 3, DX12 (even up to dx12.1), OpenGL4.5 AND Vulkan. Here is an example http://www.inno3d.com/products_detail.php?refid=251 Under Technical Spec. "Microsoft DirectX12 API with feature level 12_1 Vulkan API - Yes OpenGL" Why does not ASUS specify all of those including Vulkan? That is if they do support Vulkan API?

+TrexXxify I have Afterburner, but I didn't use it. I used Asus GPU Tweak II, and I've since edged it up to 1935MHz (that's stock boost +150MHz), with the memory clocked at 8408MHz (that's +400MHz). So far, it's been completely stable and cool. I might raise the GPU another 40MHz and see how that goes, but it's really pretty academic at the moment since I'm getting more than I need from the card. In any case, with current settings, we're talking there about only 8.4% increase over the factory boost, which would typically give an increase of 4fps from 48fps to 52fps and 8fps from 96fps to 104fps. That's not a big deal, but it's free. In theory, people OC-ing to 2100MHz are getting an additional few fps (56.5fps and 113fps, respectively). I feel comfortable with the inherent component stability and longevity prospects using default voltage and, for my purposes, there's no need to raise the mV to wring out a few more fps.
