1060 6gb is great for dvdfab 4k UHD HDR blu-ray ripping converting. Brilliant
Caius Cosades (4 days ago)
IMHO version 6 Gb should be called 1060 Ti or 1065 because it have 1280 CUDA and 80 TMU (3 Gb have 1152/72) and ~half TFLOPS more power
David Withey (9 days ago)
Oh and just benchmarked my laptop to your cards and sorry your cards are crap your CPU must be bottlenecking because on Heaven Benchmark i got 86.6fps with score of over 2100. LOL your videos shit and means nothing.
David Withey (9 days ago)
mate if going to do it then least make it fair as possible. get a 3gb card with same boost speed or you can OC it to match it also same with the memory. you can't compare something that you can overclock to same or better than the 6gb.... Think should re do it and make it fair and even. My laptop 3gb does better than the normal 3gb because it's overlocked. It sometimes even beats the 6GB model .

hmm.. why i feel this fake? i have 1050ti oc and running max 1920 at witcher and got 40fps. this gpu gtx 1060 3gb are the same power of gtx1050ti oc?

Cyber Dragon (1 month ago)
if your getting a GTX 1060 (3gb or 6gb), just stick with medium to high settings, Ultra doesn't really matter as there isn't a massive difference. If your looking for a good game experience cheap and with good graphics at 60fps, get a GTX 1060 (6gb for a bang for your buck). But if you want high end graphics at 1440p-4k, get something between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 Ti or if you just want the greatest graphics but don't mind 1080p 60fps, wait for the newest RTX 2080 Ti to play games with the absolute best graphics with raytracing (even if it's only 1080p 60fps with raytracing on)

I use the Gigabyte Windforce 1060 3GB and it performs way better on my system. I run an I5 4690K and 16GB 1600 DDR3. You need a more modern system. Your Doom FPS sucks. That same scene gives me 100 FPS.

Lel i have a 3gb GTX 1060 i get 40% plus performance then you Doom High Settings and Even Ultra i get 90+ sometimes 160fps change that CPU the i3 8100 that i have is the best $$$ per FPS that's out there

Same games, same graphics so why do every other test vids have 60fps maxed graphics?
yogibear2k10 (6 months ago)
Funny, it's all about numbers to some people, but to me it's about how things look. In some of the game there was a huge difference between the number of frames per second, BUT, if you ignored all that and went only for how things looked on screen, I bet you wouldn't be able to tell any difference. The graphics are still smooth, even when the FPS is halved and that to me is the only thing worth thinking about. The only disappointment my end is that 4k gaming (which they did not show here,) is what I am looking for as that is what my monitor is. That is when the GB matters. 1080p looks flipping awful on a 4k tv.

Avg Guardian (6 months ago)
I'd say if you are going to play 60fps or lower at 720-1080p the 1060 3GB is pretty good. Anything higher go with the 1060 6GB variant. Even better spend some extra on the 1070.

Really i5 3570k u have researched about it right? I5 should be becoming bottleneck.. Ithink? So i conclude that it is not totally on GPUs so for some games we can still get higher frame rates like tomb raider
Ânderson Peroty (6 months ago)
The biggest difference is in the stability of the frametime!

Goodborn (6 months ago)
Halfway inside the video, I already ordered the 6GB version, I just can not live with myself if I go with the 3GB version knowngly, that the 6GB is just a few bucks more. Now I am waiting for it to arrive, without any second thoughts or " what if's " . PS. I've seen so many other videos, and the FPS is much better than this guys. In my case the games will probably run at much better fps, since I have an i7-6700k + DDR4 RAM + SSD. I think his CPU might be the bottleneck or something is just off, those FPS's ain't correct,.

看完,1060 3GB不錯,要不就是乾脆上1070,3GB跟6GB的差真的不足掛齒

The 3gb version has not only less memory. Cuda cores and clocks are different too. Should be call gtx 1055 or something...
Connected Locally (6 months ago)
Bottlenecking the cpu, yes. BUT the 3gb is great for gaming purposes especially when trying to save money, which i know most who are buying a 1060 in the first place is trying to save money. Why spend the extra 60 - 100 usd for something your eyes cant see. Less cuda cores, but barely. Compare a 1080 to a 1060 and we are talking triple the amount of cuda cores roughly on both the 6gb and 3gb. Its not like the 6gb is any better when talking 1080. If you intend to use for gaming get the 3gb or move up to 1070/1080.

nvidia 1060 3gb 'recommended' price 199, real price ~320 (+60%) gtx 1060 6gb 'rec' price 249, real price ~440 (~80%)... RX 580 8gb 249$ and real price 600-700 (+150%)... so best buy for gaming and basically only decent budget solution is 1060 3gb... PS: the numbers are rounded and just for orientation
Doc Lex (7 months ago)
of course there+s no much difference at 1080p resolution, duh, try it at 1440p and you'll se the difference
Bob (7 months ago)
In the games where there is a difference both cards are too slow . 24fps or 30 fps both are not playable. So it does not matter. He should have found a setting where they both can play 1080p at 60 fps. then you would not see much of a difference.

On what settings? Also what CPU do you have? There are a lot of factors involved, also depends on the area where the benchmark was run in the game.

The clock speed of both graphics card was running differently, the 6gb was running almost double of the 3gb on almost every games, the cpu on the 6gb was running on almost 90% of the time while the 3gb was running 50-70% only on most games.

The price difference between a 6GB and 3GB version is almost $150, so it makes a huge difference for South African owners. I purchased the 3GB version and I am maxing out every single game, even Kingdom come (at 1080p) and getting 60fps. So yeah, save your money!

Amer Huba (8 months ago)
This video.. lol Gaming footage is alright and we can clearly see the numbers.. but then your conclusion is so surprising :O in Crysis, baby card is 8-14% slower in Doom, it's 40-60% slower in Witcher, it's 6-9% slower in ROTTR, it's 42-54% slower in DeusEx it's 14% slower in Ashes, it's 8% slower in GTA5 bench it was all mess; forget it or re-do it after clean re-install. in synthetic benchmarks (Unigine and Firestrike), it's 4-10% slower After owning multiple GTX 1060 and RX cards since 2016 (custom builder here) I can confirm that 6Gb GTX is the best solid option for smoothest 1080p in ANY title. Defo worth $50-60 difference. 3Gb card is great IF it's $100 cheaper than 6Gb card. AMD RX cards use more power hence are louder more of the time and 1Gb extra VRAM over 3Gb doesn't make difference in FPS.
Chill Vibes (8 months ago)
Ur just bashing the 3gb the gpu is legendary go check out the benchmarks with other cpu’s its really good, i have an i5 7400 and the 3gb and its runs pubg on high 65 avg fps and runs low 100+ fps and my other games i promise you runs maxed out or high at 60+ fps

An overclocked 3gb does better than a stock 6gb if anyone is wondering. So it can be worth saving the 70 bucks so you can buy a 144hz monitor instead of 60/75hz. I have made an overwatch benchmark. Where you can see how a 1060 3gb performs with i5 8400 and 2x4 gb ram. Check it out if you want some purchasing help. :)

Jack Separo most games run butter smooth. There is some bottleneck with 1060 3Gb on games like Forza Horizon 3 and Rust. Because they need more than 3Gb VRAM. Otherwise im playin all games maxed out. Recently got Far Cry 5 and it goes on 70fps on high preset.

Matthew Storey (7 months ago)
You're rite, I just wish that I could play games like PUBG on ultra settings at 1080, draw distances are a big deal for me, I wan't to be able to see as far as posible and more vram means more pixles can be rendered at once. And with the way games are going it's only going to become harder and harder for me to push newer games at 60fps, limiting my draw distance and fancy anti aliasing and artifact smoothing effects. So more VRam is always better, while i will admit at this point in gaming It's not a huge deal.
Venom Benchmark (7 months ago)
Matthew Storey why? In 90% of games there is like 2-3fps difference, and vram is not problem with 3gb model https://youtu.be/a1LCk66i-rI
Wan HL (9 months ago)
You should test at 4K, low settings with high texture to maximize Vram use. In this case, 6GB Vram will matter a lot.
