Looks like the exact situation as the 1050 3 GB. It's a crippled 1060 6 GB and that memory bandwidth does make a difference, although not as drastic as on the 1050 3 GB. The only way I can understand Nvidia doing this is because they're running low on 512 MB VRAM chips and started using the 1 GB variants to level out stock, hence the 160 bit bus. TLDW, it's a pointless card. Great video Bryan! This is the first dedicated 5 GB review I've seen (excluding Linus' Aliexpress card)
the memory bandwidth is intended to cripple mining performance, as the card was supposed to be only sold in China, aka the mining home base. (and it does that job well, actually.)
A S (3 months ago)
I don't think that assessment is quite accurate since the 1050 3gb is actually faster than the 2gb model while this 1060 5gb is even slower than the 3gb model.

Ur wrong, GTX 1060 5GB version was made for gaming cafe's in china and only for china, there was no intention to sell it worldwide. I agree with @logirex
logirex (3 months ago)
It is intended and sold in asia. It is cheaper and fast enough for internet gaming cafe and similiar places.

6gb is for us 1440p @ 60hz users who don't want to spend up big on a 1070 or up the vram use easily surpasses 4gb on standard gaming, so a 3gb variant will skip badly at the same settings

Strix RX 580 vs aorus RX 580 xtr? Found a used aorus one for $270. The aorus one is very fast at 1425 (or around) factory oc however better thermals and acoustics on the strix card.

Tech YES City Yes I'd love to send a screenshot. What would you like me to capture exactly? My subscribed content feed? As long as I don't view the content yet it will not be in the feed. Once I view said new upload it will showup. I'm having the same issues with EposVox content as well.

Hey guys I need help!!! I’m gonna build a budget rig for a friend. And i have to keep at 300 or less. I have 3 options rn. 1) buy a dell or similar and throw a psu and 1050 or 960 in there. 2) Buy a prebuilt Fx-6300 build with 16gb ram and a 1tb hdd cheap psu gt 720 with razer black widow kb and chroma mouse with a firefly mouse pad for 180 and replace the gpu with a sub 100 dollar gpu. 3)Buy an i5-2400 cpu, motherboard, 8gb ram, 450 evga psu, a 500gb hdd that I don’t use, cheap case and a sub 100 dollar gpu. Also another thing to consider is that I found a gtx 1060 on let go for 130 and a gtx 1050ti for 100 on let go. And the fx prebuilt is also something I found on let go. I just wanna try to get the best performance possible. I know the fx 6300’s single core performance isn’t all that good but the friend likes to make YouTube videos which is why it’s a choice considering it’s more cores and ram overall.

Hello Brain, im a big fan <3 Can i ask u a question? Im going to have X58 rig. Im planing to have EVGA X58 classified 3 mobo. But the specs in PDF file i downloaded from EGVA website just said that it support DDR3 800/1066/1333/1600+ Did 1600+ mean that i can use DDR3 2400MHz ram? Or i just stay with 1600MHz? Im planing to have X58 + 12gb ram + X5675 with 240 aio and OC to 4.5. Maybe 5.0 in the future. Many tks

It was my birthday yesterday and all i got was a monster energy drink and a half a bag of tobacco lol. It would make me really happy to win because I'm trying to build a pc for 500 dollars cause that's all I can really justify... and.. you guessed it the gpu is sucking the soul out of my budget. Hopefully I win. Much love.
David Lu (3 months ago)
Guess the memory bus deterrents video card performance, that's why AMD with lower core frequency and higher memory bus still can achieve a decent performance?
vav247 (3 months ago)
I got the 6gb Strix in late '16 for $270 USD. Crazy how much that card's value has just kept up. Love mine though, btw. Run's at <72c with a 2.1ghz OC, and that's in a really cramped mITX build.

Ometecuhtli (3 months ago)
Nice additions to the software suite, I wonder if they're that useful though in the long run, I guess competitive gaming is bound to ban them since they could give a competitive advantage. I wish nvidia made it clear if there's more to it than just a memory change, having to thouroughly research video cards is not fun even for those who are into more than light or casual gaming. Nice pair of glasses, looking good man.

Snowhawk Przhevalsky (3 months ago)
That 5GB one is... confusing. Who is this for? I see something about gaming cafes when I look it up, but who else? And thanks for the chance to win the 3GB card! I know I likely wouldn't win, but on the off chance I do, that'd make building a new rig (to finally give this current one a rest) much easier.
Tech YES City (3 months ago)
I think its an OEM card, that really isn't sold to the public, so it doesn't matter a whole lot. Still quite interesting to cover it.
Gareth Keenan (3 months ago)
So that means the low memory bandwidth is bottlenecking the increased compute cores for the 5GB card. That's why it's slower than the 3GB card.
Andrei Coada (3 months ago)
As far as I know, these cards were intented for china market and especially to cibercafes in china... It's really surprising to see the 3gb variant over the 5gb one due to the lower bandwith even if the 5gb has the same number of cuda cores
Sid Cannon (3 months ago)
Fuck off Nvidia, the x60 cards are usually the ones that sell the most, so let's not fuck with our main customer base once, with the 3GB vs 6GB version, let's do it twice ...
Kevin Van Neste (3 months ago)
What nvidia is doing with the 5gb is wrong people will buy a5gb over 3gb and it performs badly
Rajendra Patel (3 months ago)
but how is the 3gb so close to the 6gb ?_?
BlooPerreel (3 months ago)
What are the clock speeds, gpu & ram, during the tests? Otherwise the fps numbers are useless. For comparative results they all must be identical. The title says it's a comparison so record and present all the relative information i.e gpu & ram clock speeds. And once again the clock speeds MUST be the same on all of them or the test is invalid.
flibber123 (3 months ago)
I'd expect any card with more Cuda cores but less bandwidth to run slower than the standard model until you reduce resolution to find that card's sweet spot. By reducing resolution you make memory bandwidth a moot point, then the extra Cuda cores become important. There may be games that do not require a lot of memory bandwidth by design, those games will also perform better with more Cuda cores than the standard model.
MaTtRoSiTy (3 months ago)
5gb of vram would be a sensible amount for the standard 1060 rather than 6gb. In my experience a lot of games will use over 4gb of vram at 1440p but rarely over 5gb. When adding extra aa to push it closer to 5gb a 1060 will run out of raw power before that buffer will be exceeded at 1440p. 3gb is not really enough vram in some games either, especially at 1440p. So the 5gb version would be ideal if the bus wasn't so crippled

Standard Nvidia tactics. Let's release another totally unneeded an worthless card. A sucker born every minute.
Interrobang (3 months ago)
Brian, I'd really like to see a short followup on this video. The memory is clearly the problem as stated, so why not try a memory OC? iirc memory oc helped a lot with other bandwidth-limited cards like the gtx 960. Btw I LOVE that asus "plug in your case fans to your gpu" feature. When I run an AIO on my cpu with a air cooled gpu, the gpu dumps way more heat than my cpu when gaming. I end up with case fans on low, with a screaming gpu fan.

CyberClu (3 months ago)
Love the special effects you're using in this vid, like the smoking hot unboxing of the the Asus Dual OC card. Also, I'm really interested in Nvidia's game filter. Looks like it might be some serious competition to mods like SweetFX and Reshade. Just to bad you have to use the Geforce Experience to attain that level of customization. Plus, I'm really surprised Nvidia didn't make an GTX 1060 TI. Almost every other tier card got a TI.
Andrew Joy (3 months ago)
Honestly if i was going to get a potato card like a 1060 or 580 i would go for the 580 , more vram lasts longer and in general AMD supports cards for longer and they retain performance over time.
Shipmaster 'Raham (3 months ago)
More completely pointless cards from NVIDIA, just why? I honestly don't get it, who would pay a tiny amount less just to have one gig less with the same specs otherwise. I would just get the 1060 6gb or a 3gb, which is what I have in my personal PC. If these things continue I'm going to switch over to AMD next time around, as long as AMD stays competitive and I think they will. the 570 and 580 are great cards respectively, their higher end stuff is lack luster in comparison to NVIDIA but I just don't need anything that high end.

Please help us !!!!! I am a Citizen of Bangladesh 🇧🇩 This is a plea for help. On 29th of July 2018 school going students were killed by a reckless bus driver. The students protested with slogans on the same bus stand. Since then All students of Bangladesh are protesting for safer roads and more strict regulations. Their intention was never to harm even a single person. Neither it is now. But today POLICE AND PEOPLE OF CHATRO LEAGUE tortured students with tear shell, they beat students brutally and raped the female students (on 4th August 2018). The students are trying to defend themselves with sticks and tree branches that they've found on the streets. 4 students have been murdered and other 4 female students have been raped. And the Government is sitting there silent. WE NEED YOUR HELP. PLEASE.

the ext_fan headers on the gpu are bullshit. nice idea, but implemented so poorly, its sad. min pwm is 40%. you need gputweakII which is poorly programmend and i couldnt get my card to overclock with this program. max was 1865 mhz on 1080 which goes up to 2100mhz with afterburner. just use speedfan instead and onboard headers

If you're looking for cheap but good CPU in the DDR3 era, look for i7-2600k/2700k. These can run on Z68 and Z77 motherboards, these are soldered so can be massively overclocked (~4.7 GHz achievable) and cooled easily with <$50 coolers.

This is just the next episode of "NVidia doing shitty anti-consumer stuff". They already have a 3GB and a 6GB version, they already had different core count versions that were totally unclear for consumers. And now they bring out a 5GB model. 90% of consumers will just think: 5GB, that is in between the 3GB and 6GB version, but closer to the 6GB. But in the end, it is slower than both. I sometimes really wonder why people still buy NVidia cards, as with that they are sponsoring a company that does shitty anti-consumer, anti-competitor things again and again and again...

I have the same Asus dual cooler design on my RX 480 8gb but it’s always been kinda hot and loud for my taste anybody else experience this?
AssassinKlD (3 months ago)
Yeah the DUAL is way louder than even the STRIX (2 fans) version (not ROG STRIX which has 3 fans). The heatpipes are less effective and the fin density is lower.
Yorch Li (3 months ago)
I got also an 8gb version, it cost me 210 like 2 months ago (used). I have stressed it a lot and it works fine, no funny gizmos or anything. It was from a mining rig, and the guy let me "choose" from his 12 rx580, they were all identical except for two 4gb rx580 he had. He even installed the original Bios in that moment we were testing and stressing the card.
GR4FF1T1 (3 months ago)
Yorch Li yeah but I got a 8gb 480 for 200 back when gpu prices weren’t so screwed up it was 60$ more for the strix
Yorch Li (3 months ago)
And remember that Asus Duals are the cheap line-up, ROGs would be the Top-end. That's why Duals feels kinda cheap on fans and no backplate.
Yorch Li (3 months ago)
I also have an Asus Dual but RX 580 and normally AMD cards run warmer than Nvidia. My Dual runs at 65-75 Cº depending on the game. The max RPMs are around 2500, and it is a bit noisy but not that much. What I did notice is that the noise increases rapidly as the dust accumulates over the gpu fans, so I clean it often.
