    Talk about product segmentation, GDDR5X-based 1060's will mean we'll have eight different version of the 1060.

    But I think the simple "Avoid the 3GB model" advice still stands?". Or possibly "Buy an RX 580"

    Re: Gigabyte and Palit reveal GDDR5X-based GTX 1060 cards

    Could it be possible to add ray tracing to this gpu ?. I currently have a 1060 and would be quite happy staying 1080p because the silly prices of rtx. It's great that the have added better memory but if I were to buy this I won't not see it as an upgrade. Is ray tracing exclusively 20 series ?. I think Nvidia are missing a trick here as 1060 is so popular. Give this gpu ray tracing and I would buy and i would be happy for a few years and I'm sure a lot of other people would be.

    Because the pascal GPU at the heart of the 1060 (GP106 or cut down GP104) doesn't contain any dedicated hardware for accelerating ray tracing. If you changed the GPU then it wouldn't be a 1060 any more.

    Technically you could do ray tracing on a 1060 it's just that it would be pretty unplayable, a 1080 Ti manages around 5-6fps so a 1060 would probably be half that.

    There's a new marketing line for this card.
    Only 3 fps less that 1080ti in ray traced titles!!
    Is my cynicism showing?

    Ha!

    I personally think the variation in GPU specs for the 1060 "range" is an absolute disgrace. I look at a GPU and I assume it's the model I read about, not something they had left over after a bad fab run tweaked. It's another marketing ploy that pushed me away from Nvidia.

    RX 580 has 4g version as well. There is a RX 580 2048sp version in China.

    Completely nonsensical, the mid-range market is already completely saturated with 1060's.

    Re: Gigabyte and Palit reveal GDDR5X-based GTX 1060 cards

    Why did they not call this a 1065 card instead of 1060?

    If they are going to produce so many variations of the same card the damn names should be different.

    But I haven't ever felt the need to tell someone that they shouldn't buy one of those.

    The 1060 3GB is a dog of a card though. Occasionally it struggles to get half the frame rate of a 6GB card probably because devs don't tune for 3GB.

    Whereas this 5X card, whilst confusing naming, could well be a decent card if the price is OK.
