MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 3GB Graphics Card Review

The mainstream segment of the graphics card market seems to be the most competitive currently. With AMD releasing their Radeon RX 480 at a price-point of $229 with performance of cards from the previous generation that cost upwards of $350. This prompted NVIDIA to released their GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card earlier than expected. Now with AMD releasing their RX 470, NVIDIA has a new GTX 1060, a 3GB model. This model now only cuts the VRAM in half, but also has an extra SM unit disabled. Off the bat NVIDIA allowed for add-in-card (all-in-card) AIC partners to release their custom cards for this new GTX 1060. Today we have one such card from MSI, which is their GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 3GB. This card comes with a custom PCB with a nice factory overclock, MSI's TwinFrozr VI cooling solution, full back-plate, and RGB lighting options. The card comes in a $239, which gives it a $40 premium over the GTX 1060 3GB base MSRP. Let's jump in and see what this card is made of!

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Specifications Leaked

Typically when we see different variants of the same card the only thing that is different is the amount of memory (VRAM) on the card, but NVIDIA is changing things up with their upcoming GeForce GTX 1060 3GB model. If you remember NVIDIA launched the 6GB GTX 1060 not that long ago. With the 3GB model the card will not only have less memory, but also fewer CUDA cores.
