To add to the confusion of Nvidia's current cards, Nvidia is releasing a new 60 series card to compete with the upcoming launch of the RX 590 from AMD, called the GTX 1060 6GB, featuring 6GB of GDDR5X memory, an upgrade from the GDDR5 memory on the current GTX 1060 6GB model. The new GTX 1060 will also feature the GP104 GPU, which is the same GPU used in the GTX 1070, 1070ti, and 1080 cards.

It looks like NVIDIA has silently introduced a new GeForce GTX 1060 SKU in their lineup which has even better specifications than the original variant.

 

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB Graphics Card Gets GDDR5X Memory – Slight Update To Tackle AMD Radeon RX 590?

With AMD’s refresh Polaris lineup closing in for launch, NVIDIA has just gone ahead with a memory bump on their mainstream GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card. The GeForce GTX 1060 originally got 8 Gbps memory which was later updated to 9 Gbps on the 6 GB GDDR5 variants. Now, NVIDIA will be offering a 6 GB GDDR5X variant which will deliver even higher memory bandwidth to the graphics card, resulting in a small but noticeable performance improvement.

We have received an information from our source at Gigabyte that manufacturer is readying a new GDDR5X-based model.

The last GTX 10 series card?

It has been rather quiet under GTX brand in the past few weeks. Recent rumors suggest that GTX might return with 2060 series, although it was never really confirmed. Meanwhile, Pascal architecture which is slowly disappearing from stores, might still reappear under a new SKU.

The card we have heard about it clearly based on GP104 board, in fact, it looks identical to GeForce GTX 1080. Thus the new model could use a cut-down Pascal GP104 silicon.

Now, this is not really news, because GP104-based GTX 1060 model has been dormant in the driver for months now, although no models based on this SKU have been seen so far.

It's still early days and this is all just rumour at this point, however the claims of a new GDDR5X 1060 6GB model are supported by the Nvidia product information page for the GTX 1060 series of cards, which now features the "6GB GDDR5/X" description for the memory spec. There's no separate listing for memory bandwidth, CUDA Cores, or clocks at this stage displayed on the Nvidia website. It's also unclear if this new GDDR5X model will be available as an exclusive to China/Asia, such is the case with the current GTX 1060 5GB, or if it will be available world wide.

My Thoughts:

It's obviously early days and rumours at this point, but as noted above there is credit to this rumour. This wouldn't surprise me if true. We've known for a while now that there was an oversupply of Pascal GPUs that Nvidia was looking to offload, and with the dominance that Nvidia has had over AMD with Pascal in recent years it's entirely possible that a "1060" with the GP104 chip with GDDR5X memory is all they need to match the performance of the upcoming polaris refresh from AMD with the RX 590. It wouldn't be the first time Nvidia has launched a refresh of an existing card in response to a new product launch from AMD, as the GTX 1070 ti was a later release in response to the AMD Vega GPUs.

If it is true then Nvidia's naming scheme is getting a bit ridiculous, first with the GT 1030 and GT 1030 DDR4 models, and now the GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5 and GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5X which potentially use different GPUs and expected to have substantially different performance. Nvidia should just call it something else, such as "GTX 1065 6GB" and differentiate it properly from the other models to avoid customer confusion.

Hi Nvidia.

 

Here's a few options

 

1061, 1062, 1063, 1064, 1065, 1066, 1067, 1068, 1069 (iykwim)

 

You better fucking use them because I know you cheating fucks probably will call it "1060" with nothing else because fuck the customer let's confuse them.

AMD's refreshed of Polaris seems like it's a semi-custom design that they're just bringing out to mainstream, so Nvidia "rebranding" the 1060 with faster memory (which will provide more performance) makes sense. There is a 2060 that'll come at some point, but Nvidia might just axe that for a while. As they clearly make more by just selling 1060s until stocks get depleted.

They really should call it the 1065. But, they wont'.

That would actually make a lot more sense. You'd have the 1050Ti, 1060Ti, 1070Ti, and 1080Ti.

Interesting it isn't GP106 based but GP104. Makes you wonder, did they over-supply GP104 that much it is worth them doing this? This partially makes sense. There's no point making more 1080's given the 2070 has taken its performance/price spot, but arguably is there more room for 1070's?

Yeah and it has the benefit of precedence since this wouldn't be the first time the're introducing a xx60ti GPU.

 

Or, and I know this is a bold idea, how about they introduce something in their new architecture that will compete with AMD's new GPU? Like a 2050 or smth? Crazy, I know.

Makes you think that someone sitting behind a desk somewhere in Nividia Headquarters doing this on purpose. For the purpose to confuse all them idiot whales with more money than brains. "Go out there and buy the new RTX cards its well worth the money" LOL.

That's the uuuu 4th or 5th different graphics card with the same fucking name? Il let Linus Torvaldson take it away:
