GeForce GTX 1060 will faster than GTX 960 SLI? And fast enough for VR gaming

After GTX 1070, NVIDIA is expected to unveiled GeForce GTX 1060 in the near future. The new mid-range card will be based on GP106 Pascal GPU and set to feature a 256-bit memory bus with either 4GB or 8GB of GDDR5 RAM, which enough for handle most games and VR headsets games. We may see another NVIDIA card that will fill the bigger gap between the GTX 1060 and GTX 1070. Possible the GTX 1060 Ti, which could have 8GB or 6GB memory with some extra CUDA cores.

The GTX 1060 is expected to have around 1280 CUDA cores, a good 640 core less than GTX 1070’s 1920 CUDA cores. Assume from CUDA cores and Pascal’s higher clock speeds we may looking at performance levels of 4.0 TFLOPs+, which is twice the performance of GTX960’s 2.4 TFLOPs. The GTX 1060 will compete with mid-range Polaris cards from AMD. So the battle to rule the mid-range graphics market is very intense, we should see the something for NVIDIA soon, as AMD is all set to unveil its Polaris on 1st June.
