2 Update: The GTX 1060 GDDR5X card was added From Palit appears to him, And confirms that we use the same 1,280 CUDA units as in the past and at frequencies that look quite standard compared to previous models of the same intermediate card - when the GDDR5X memory also receives an effective 8,800MT / s working frequency or even less than the 9,000MT / s frequency announced for the GTX 1060 Memories GDDR5 Improved last year.
All this data brings us to the conclusion that the updated GTX 1060 is not intended to provide any significant performance improvement relative to what has already been sold on the market, NVIDIA GP104 cores and possibly even printed circuit boards - by making GTX 1070 Ti or even non-functioning GTX 1080 models Performence Desirable models are reduced with a number of smaller processing units.
updating: Gigabyte Is the first manufacturer to officially announce GTX models with 1060 memory GDDR5X - so we can expect to see "completely new" products in the update, instead of any existing versions that might add additional confusion to the supply.
Full technical details on the operating frequency of the model are not yet on the official site of the company, so we will not be able to know exactly what has changed compared to the standard GTX 1060 with the GDDR6 5GB - but the back of the product can clearly see a pair of connectors SLI, Which seems to prove that a larger GP104 core is being used, rather than the GP106 (SLI-free) core as in other models. This does not mean that the connection is arrays SLI Will be possible in the GDDR5X models, incidentally - but this may have quite interesting effects on the performance actually received.
Right - GeForce GTX 1060 with GDDR5X memory (and SLI on the lower left) and GeForce GTX 1060 on the left Memories GDDR5. Crucial proof for using GP104? Probably very soon we will know the answer in a certain way
The original article: Is the chip developer plans to update its own middleware to fight theRadeon RX 590 approaching?
The representatives of NVIDIA It has been announced that Pascal video cards are here to stay with the Turing products, at least until the beginning of the year 2019 - so it seems that the expectation of a new intermediate model to replace the GeForce GTX 1060 was now a little naive. However, there is a good chance that we will see an heir or an alternative - with a new generation of graphics memory and maybe even Core different.
According to network reports,NVIDIA Are preparing to launch a version of the popular 1060 GTX with memory GDDR5X, similar to the GTX 1080 and the GTX 1070 Ti,GDDR5 Existing models on the market today.
It is unclear whether the memory frequency will be increased as a default, which may in turn improve the overall performance of the product, but it can be estimated that even without a formal change there will be potential here The fast (GDDR5X memories support higher working speeds than their predecessors) that can be used to improve Performence.
Based on the relative differences between the GeForce GTX 1070 and the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, it is not surprising to speculate about the possibility that the new model will get the name GTX 1060 Ti and will be placed at a slightly higher price than the existing ones - perhaps even based on the GP104 core like the Pascal instead of the GP106 core, which in turn could improve Performence additional.
This entire move is a quick response by the developer, ostensibly, Possible launch of the Radeon RX 590 / Radeon RX 680 from the opponent With cores Polaris Efficiency than ever before, which can re-awaken the competition in the price category of 300 dollars or less. We certainly will not object to such an interim stage, before the real battle between Turing andships Will start somewhere over the next year. We will continue to follow and update you of course.
