  1. I bought one of those P106 mining cards as they can be made to run as GTX1060 graphics cards. Turns out I need a 4th gen Intel CPU or higher to use this card and my i5-3470 is third gen. Drat. So I got to thinking, what might it cost to build an ultra-budget PC just to run this card? -lowest cost motherboard to run a compatible CPU that’s a good pairing for a GTX1060 -onboard video and HDMI output -onboard everything (audio, sound etc) -SATAIII Does anyone have parts/purchase recommendations?

    Doh! P106 mining card + 3rd gen CPU

    Any Linus Tech members in B.C. who want this card? Let me know, otherwise I'll put it on Craigslist.

    Confirmed, still won't work with a 3rd gen Intel CPU. Oh well, it was worth a try. I guess it's time to sell and get my $138 back. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    Actually, reading your post again, I realize that your second card is a GTX1060. Since mine is a P106, I'm quite doubtful that it would work with another video card that way.

    Woah...that's awesome if it works! I have my Radeon R9 reinstalled in my comp. So you're saying I could run the P106 in my other PCIe slot and it will actually show up as a "High Performance GPU option?

    Pretty much all I've been playing lately is Planetside, and my Radeon R9 270x tends to get 80-100fps. I'm okay for the time being.

    I think it has to do with the low power consumption properties of Intel chips starting at gen 4. Windows doesn't recognize my onboard graphic (HD2500) as low power.

    Did you buy one Bob?

    Yeah I’m sure someone nearby can use it, I see they’re still not widespread in my neck of the woods.
  10. Drat! I bought a Gigabyte P106 6GB from Taobao to run in my desktop with an i5-3470. Unfortunately, it won’t work as a video card with this CPU as it’s a third gen chip. Heads up to anyone who wants to buy one of these, make sure you have 4th gen or higher. Oh well, it was worth a try. Only set me back a total of $138 Cdn to my door.

    Nvidia Said We Couldn't Game On This...

    I'm not having a good time with this. Ran the command prompt for testsigning on and integritychecks on, modified the two driver files, ran DDU then installed driver 416.34 and it installed correctly. Prompted me that it wasn't a signed driver (as it should), and card is showing in device manager as a GTX 1060 6GB.But...when I go to Graphics Settings to enable the High Performance Card, it's not showing up. All I see is Intel(R) HD Graphics. for both power saving and high performance options. Rebooted and it still only shows Intel(R) HD. When I check NVidia control panel, it says I'm not currently connected to an NVIDIA GPU.Hopefully I'm just overlooking something simple. Any thoughts??

    That would be a great Linus Tech video. Linus already covered external vid cards with a laptop. Pop in a P100 mining card with modded drivers and see what happens.

    Well, hopefully it all works out. Worth a shot to get a $300 graphics value for sub $100. I bought a relatively high end machine, five plus years ago. It's moderate now, with a Radeon R9 270x. Going from that to a GTX1060 GPU would be quite a boost.

    Do those modded files (for drivers 416.34) also work with the newer drivers 417.71? Just swap them in?
