NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Mobile technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Mobile

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 1060 Mobile sales 15 August 2016 at a recommended price of 237.11 USD. This is a Pascal architecture notebook card based on 16 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 6 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 8.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 192 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 192 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. An additional 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 120 Watt.

It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 44.96 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro P6000.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
