Nvidia GTX 1060 - Still A Good Buy In 2019?

8410 ratings | 732540 views
How well does the Geforce 1060 hold up in 2019? Check out this in-depth review of the 1060 GTX to find out! 👉Get The GTX 1060 On Amazon: http://geni.us/mXGog Check Out My Latest Video: https://goo.gl/EZWkGE The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 is a great midrange GPU for gaming. After collecting the benchmarks, I’d say the 1060 3GB is one of, if not the best graphics cards for gaming at 1080p. If you’re looking for the best GPU you can get for budget or midrange gaming, the Nvidia 1060 is it. The card I had for review, the Asus Dual GTX 1060 3GB, comes with a great dual fan cooler. This Asus 1060 requires a PCIe power connector but also pushes great performance. If you’re looking for an Asus GPU, specifically an Asus GTX 1060, the Asus Dual-GTX1060-O3G is a great option. ►GPU Test Bench: https://kit.com/ponchato/gpu-test-bench 👉Social Links👈 Twitter: http://bit.ly/PonTweet Discord: https://discord.gg/KUrVC78 👉Cool Stuff👈 My Picks On Amazon: http://bit.ly/PonPicks Newegg Daily Deals: http://bit.ly/PonDaily 👉My Setup👈 PC: http://bit.ly/PonchPC Setup: http://bit.ly/PonchSetup Video Gear: http://bit.ly/PonchGear Background music: Joakim Karud – Longing https://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud/longing

i still have my GTX 1060 6gb (although i got it last year brand new) it holds up really well in my games i get 70+ fps with High settings i can reach for Max settings in alot of games if i don't mind dipping under 60 every now and then.

The 1060 these days is basically a budget graphics card, BUT it’s without a doubt one of the best budget graphics cards. Add an 8th gen 6-core i7, 16gb ram, and an SSD, and you’ve got a brilliant gaming laptop or pc for £1500 👌

I don't like that these Nvidia cards have dual DVI anymore. I don't want to use a HDMI TV as my second monitor for computer video editing work.

I'm looking at building another gaming PC as mine is getting very dated. I'm looking up a 6GB version. Will this play games decently? The 6GB 1060 ti?
youandiryan (6 days ago)
+DMN DMN thanks man. Yes I am getting the GTX 1070 8GB, with 16GB DDR4 ram at 3200mhz, new Intel i7 8700K 6-core, and a 800 watt corsair psu. My machine will be extremely powerful haha
DMN DMN (6 days ago)
Pretty much it will most games high some you can put on ultra. Just keep enough ram like 16 gb ram with a good psu. I have a 600 psu. Or you can buy a used 1070 off eBay for under 300 maybe even 250

Jonathan Brown (17 days ago)
Wait a second. There's a glitch in GTAV where low settings for graphics causes dangerous lagspikes?
ponchato (17 days ago)
It's only happened to me on certain systems, while on others it works perfectly on low settings. I'm really not sure what causes low settings to do that

Yeah, cryptocurrency really messed up those prices for a long time...
Dried Soup (1 month ago)
testing GPUs on csgo is not really relevant because its a CPU intensive game so even if you have a 1060, if your CPU is shit (like my A10 9700) your fps can go as low as 20 and as high as just 80 (only in csgo)
ponchato (1 month ago)
I have seen some differentiation between GPUs in CSGO, but generally yes, it is more CPU bound.
adri 450 (1 month ago)
You should buy a rx580, its cheaper better and a better proof in the future

this is a good video. I just wanted to see what the gpu os capable of because im thinking of getting my own gaming pc and the first game im getting is subnautica. it should run well.

Yeah, the 1060 will be perfect for Subnautica!

is gtx 1060 a good buy? yeah, of course. if you're a nvidia fanboy and you can shit money.
ponchato (1 month ago)
Haha, these days with the RTX 2000 series driving prices down, Nvidia and AMD are pretty competitive in the low and midrange.
Ahmed Al-Shalchi (1 month ago)
I think the test should be on a last gen core i7 or ryzen and 16 GB of memory to avoid any possible bottleneck or drops that are not related to the GPU which i prefer to be 6 GB version to get the maximum of it
ponchato (1 month ago)
True, a higher end CPU and more RAM would make this a better test

Ian Smiley (1 month ago)
Hi there I have bought a new computer with an Intel Prime Z390A motherboard, i5 9600k processor, a 1060 6gb graphics card and 16gb RAM and was wondering if this rig will be able to play Assassins Creed Odyssey? Also will this rig be good for the next few years do you think? Any help would be much appreciated.
Ian Smiley (1 month ago)
+ponchato Cheers that's great. Exactly what I wanted to hear. Keep up the good work :)
ponchato (1 month ago)
Oh definitely, that'll handle Odyssey easily at 1080p/1440p. You might have a bit of trouble at 4K, but that's just because running anything at 4K and decent frame rates is still really hard except for top-end GPUs like the 1080/2070 and up. And yep, that PC should be a strong contender for quite a few years - and all you'll need to do to bring it up to date 2 or 3 years down the line is upgrade the GPU.

I have a 1060 it runs all games good
Jackson Bloomer (1 month ago)
I bought an nvidia geforce gtx 1060 3gb and it is a piece of shit. The only thing I can play is 15 year old games, or new games with graphics on settings that make them look 15 years old. It cant even run minecraft. The 1060 game with my hp omen 870 224... HUGE disappointment. My xbox one x that costs $399 can play any game in 4k at 30 or 60 fps... where as my $819 "gaming" computer cannot even play rust on medium graphics. I decided to buy a pre built PC because I do not have the time or money to custom build my own PC. My advice? Stick to console if you do not have at least $1200 dollars to blow. I have at least $600 dollars more to invest into this shitty computer to even get it to this generations standards for gaming.

WOOGIE (1 month ago)
my gtx 950 is a decent buy heck the 750 Ti is still a decent buy in 2018
ponchato (1 month ago)
True, the 750 Ti is about halfway between a 1030 and 1050. That's more than enough for lower settings at 1080p in current games. Actually pretty amazing how long it's lasted.

should i get the gtx 1060 6gb Founders edition?
Rafz1k (1 month ago)
@ponchato I'm getting it cause I heard it has good oc capabilities and for the fortnite bundle lol
ponchato (1 month ago)
Eh, not sure of normal prices over there but that sounds a bit high. Could be worth it though if you're really interested in the fortnite bundle and game
Rafz1k (1 month ago)
+ponchato thanks dude is £250 a good deal? You get a fortnite bundle and a game with the card
ponchato (1 month ago)
If you can get a good deal on it, definitely! 3rd party 1060s (ie ones with 2 fans like in the video) will be quieter though, the stock blower fan can get pretty loud
Kealdeca (1 month ago)
Gtx 1050ti 4gb to gtx 1060 6gb what do you think? Need suggestion guys.
Kealdeca (1 month ago)
+ponchato thank you for giving a suggestion right away, I appreciate it. Yes im planning to sell my 1050ti aside from gpu im upgrading my ram to 16gb and i already have ryzen 5 1600 for processor.
ponchato (1 month ago)
The 1060 is a pretty sizable step up in performance, something like 20-30% if I remember right. Would definitely be worth it if you get a good deal on the 1060 and sell your 1050 Ti to offset the cost.
KD is not 6'9 (1 month ago)
What about gtx 1050ti? Probably not worth it now.😉
ponchato (1 month ago)
Haha, I don't think the 1050 Ti is going anywhere anytime soon. Nvidia's holding on tightly to its mid range RTX cards!

if i would buy the 6gb OC model for 150€ would it be a good deal ?
ponchato (1 month ago)
That sounds like a really good deal!
Domino52o (1 month ago)
Haven't watched the video yet, but the 1060 damn well better be good enough for at least a couple more years, I just freaking bought my first pc today with one in it.
Prithilia Dias (1 month ago)
+ponchato I still think it can run all the upcoming High graphics games at 1080p 60 fps ultra settings at least till 2021..I guess
ponchato (1 month ago)
Haha don't worry, the 1060 is still really powerful. Even through 2019 I think it'll be a strong GPU
Gamendex Live (1 month ago)
Is this good for Architecture renderings?
ponchato (1 month ago)
If you're on a budget, definitely. A workstation graphics card would (of course) work better, but those are many times more expensive.

Can you help me build a gaming computer? I don't have much experience when it comes to PC. My budget is around 1000. All I want is to play games like Fortnite,League of legends,World of wizcraft, Dota 2 in medium to high graphics. And I also want latest parts in my PC at a reasonable price. Thank you in advance.

should i buy the 6gb version for $200 new? black friday and building a new pc after not having one for a couple years. also intel or amd for gaming now? amd used to be shit but now not so much it seems and they're cheaper.
ponchato (1 month ago)
1060 6GB for $200 is a super good deal I'd consider Intel and AMD to be very close in performance these days, with AMD definitely having the advantage in price to performance ratio

Why would you even ask this? Of course it’s still a good buy!
Cri11e (1 month ago)
+DarkPurity Thanks you for advice!
DarkPurity (1 month ago)
Cri11e You May get 250fps if you have a good cp. games like CS:GO and Rocket league will get around 250fps on lower settings.
Cri11e (1 month ago)
+DarkPurity Thank you very much for answer. Is this the same for esport optimized games like CSGO and rocket league?
DarkPurity (1 month ago)
Cri11e So basically it would be pointless to get a 240hz monitor because your gpu won’t be able to keep up with it.
DarkPurity (1 month ago)
Cri11e You most likely won’t get 250 fps at 1080p but possibly at 720p. Honestly I would just stick to a 100-144hz monitor.

Stavros Koul (2 months ago)
Buy a rx 580 its 8gb vram ita slightly faster has better support and the cooling is just freaking perfect on sapphire cards. It only costa 250 dollars in greece or 240 something euros in greece while the gtx 1060 costs more than 320 dollars.

+søar Well go with whatever suits you man!
