never knew why an gtx 1060 with only 3GB VRAM would be good for gaming while the older cards had 4GB VRAM...oh well nvidia logic?

The people who say that the 3gb version is better for the price forget that in the future games may need more than 3gb of vram...
Chiono (3 days ago)
Should've looked more at how the 3gb version performs, well I guess it will be a better card in a few years

I have a GTX 1060 3GB, I’m thinking of upgrading to the 6GB version. Would this upgrade be worth it? Or should I just stick with the 3GB version?
Gentle Singularity (1 day ago)
If you're going to upgrade, get at least a 1070 so you can see a big improvement.

wtf? why does forza 7 have that huge difference in fps and not all the other games?
SpudCommando (4 days ago)
if you look closely, the 3gb 1060 is using more system RAM than the 1060 6gb. this means that the VRAM is full and its loading the rest of the stuff from RAM which is slower.

Rifet Okic (8 days ago)
Let me tell you something man. If you were gaming on ULTRA, you take a brake to take a piss and a sandwich, i go to your computer and lower teh settings to HIGH. I’ll bet you wouldnt notice a thing except it runs SMOOTHER! You wouldnt find out untill you opened the graphics settings again.

P I just upgraded from the 970 to the 1060 today. I I am pretty happy with the performance, but I'm glad that I got it at a steeply reduced price. otherwise I would have said my money for the 1080 or even the 2700. But shadow of the Tomb Raider is running at 60fps on Ultra and that's all I wanted.

ive got a gtx 1060 3gb and i play: csgo/pubg/the witcher series(1.2.3)/ac origin /r6 siege/insurgency/battlefield 1/ghost recon wildlands / the division / destiny 2/overwatch/starwars battlefront 1 and 2/ need for speed payback/ battlefield 4/rocket league/plants vs zombies 2/gta v/4k hentai. basically you can play anygame on high settings and ive had this card for more than 2.5 years and sstill working like a new one.
Reiji Ricardo (21 days ago)
The 3gb and 6gb are similar only when there is a little things for the GPU to process. The 6gb outperforms the 3gb because the 6gb can handle more things than the 3gb
GAME ZARUS (21 days ago)
Dont forget that 6 GB will be better than 3 regarding to the up comming games, I mean think to the futur. And what will happen when you ll sell your card in a second hand market ? 6 GB cards will be sell 50 % more than 3 Gb. If you are using your Gcard in a multitask way and the games needs 3/4 gig Vram, you ll be happy to save some memory for streaming/recording games (for example).

why forza7 so different
wolfgang (21 days ago)
Look at VRAM usage.
geomdx (22 days ago)
above 50 FPS, everything will be fine. if the FPS average is above 50 and some lagg appears (o0) between processor and so basic low range gpu can be the issue

El Coyote (25 days ago)
I dont know about fx 8350, i have i5 8400, 16gb ram and 1060 3gb. Stable 55-57 fps ultra in witcher 3. With 6gb version it will be +5 fps more.
Tony Bologna (26 days ago)
Is it worth it??
geomdx (22 days ago)
the 16gb card - at least for game , no worthaa, maybe if the process of some work demands it
Rhapbus1 (27 days ago)
3GB is better for the price right now, I imagine the 6GB will give you better longevity.

considering a future demand of gra[hic heavywork yes
Pygmo (26 days ago)
That's not how it works, 6gb is more future proof. With textures becoming better over the years, those extra 3gb will give you a much smoother experience

Maybe its because of your ram and cpu for example if your ram is only like 4 ram that the reason and if your cpu(procesor) is a bit old that may be the reason to

Andrew Lanier (1 month ago)
If you guys think about it this is pretty good because he is showing the gameplay at max video quality and on top of that with max video quality it’s running 80- 110 FPS witch isn’t bad but unless your gonna be running max video quality expect higher FPS

Dominic Rivers (1 month ago)
The price difference is the killer unfortunately, for sure the 6gb card is better, but, when I bought my 3gb card at £179, the 6gb one was £289 in the same store, and, for a 1080/HD gamer, simply not worth it.

how the hell do you have the exact same things happening in fortnite?
BenKlif ZernoV (1 month ago)
For the games that uses small amount of VRam it's the same performance for both(not 100% though) ....but when it comes to games that uses 3gb< you're going to see differences(like Forza)

So it's better to get a GTX 1060 3GB and use it for let's say 2 to 3 maybe 4 years. And after that upgrade to the standard or higher end GPU at that time?

Infinity 58 (1 month ago)
I still own a 1060 3gb i had it for 2 years and i just switched to a 1080ti that came in the mail a few days ago (i baught it after seeing 2080ti awful benchmarks) i have to say its an incredible budget card it ran every game i had at medium-max settings at around 80-144 fps with 1080 144hz monitor i switched to the 1080ti because i had the money and i wanted to upgrade to a 1440p 144hz gsync monitor which the 1060 3gb cant handle but if you are playing 1080p, want good fps and are not deadly afraid of medium settings this is a very bang for buck card and ive noticed more and more newer titles arent getting harder to run they are actually getting easier to run i played bf5 on 1060 3gb with 90fps high setting when thats the case your really have to ask yourself when are the expensive cards really worth it??
Gabriel M. (1 month ago)
Yeah, I agree. I own a 1080Ti as well, but the 1060 3GB (and 6GB respectively) is surprisingly fast relative to its price point ($180-$250 USD). I bought the 3GB version last year when my 780Ti died (rest in peace), and I was surprised at how comfortable you can games with a mixture of High / Ultra settings, targeting 1080p/60FPS. It's incredibly good from a value stand point, especially if you play competitive eSports games like CSGO, Overwatch, and R6 Seige where you normally turn settings as low as they can possibly go to render as many frames as possible. Not a bad deal, the 1060 is an amazing mid range GPU.
Ralph Tobias (1 month ago)
if you just want 1080 not exceeding that 3gb is for u ,if u want ultra go for higher vram

Looking at the comments, the 3GB version seems really overrated. People should try playing a game that requires more than 3GB of VRAM.
