Sometimes, you just have to lớn get the most out of your money, & that means sacrificing some extras for the bare necessities. For instance, you might just go with a very basic điện thoại thông minh because you know you’re only going lớn use it for calls và texts. You might order a la carte because sodas are highway robbery at restaurants. Or you might get a graphics thẻ that does what it needs to do—render frames & render them quickly—without any bling. That’s basically the idea behind the Palit GeForce GTX 1060 Dual 3 GB. But does being bare mean it sucks? Find out below.

Design 3.5 / 5.0

The Palit GeForce GTX 1060 Dual proves that you really shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, or in this case, a graphics thẻ by its shroud. Design-wise, it is pretty plain. While most rigs will have sầu the shroud pointed down towards the bottom of the case—so you’ll only be seeing its top edge and back—it would have sầu still been nice lớn see a custom shroud that screams gaming. The thẻ also felt quite light. Almost toyish, actually.

Taking a look around the thẻ, you’ll find the two 90 mm fans on its face, the 6-pin power connector along its top right edge, the DVI-D, HDXiaoMI, and DisplayPort I/O on the honeygiaithuongtinhnguyen.vnbed bracket, and a whole lot of circuits and chokes on its rear. The shroud wraps around the top, bottom, and right edges of the thẻ, almost entirely concealing the horizontal running aluminum-finned heat sink and copper heat pipes.

Hardware 3.5 / 5.0

Running the show is the Pascal-based GP106 GPU, a 16 nm chip produced by TSMC from Taiwan. The GTX 1060 giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnes in two memory variants (6 GB trims are available), and the more modest 3 GB version giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnes with 1152 CUDA cores humming at 1506 and 1708 MHz for the base & boost clocks, respectively. Palit’s Dual take on the 1060 runs with these stochồng clocks.

Besides the difference in frame buffer, all 1060s will have an effective sầu memory tốc độ of 8 Gbps, a 192-bit-wide memory bus, and a maximum memory bandwidth of 192 GB/s.

User Experience 5.0 / 5.0

Now that we got the ugly out of the way, let’s get started with the Palit GTX 1060 Dual’s good side. I slapped it on the bench with an Hãng Intel bộ vi xử lý Core i5-4460 processor clocked at 3.2 GHz, stoông chồng Intel cooler and heatsink, an Hãng Asus Z87i-Pro motherboard, single 8 GB stiông xã ofl DDR3 G.Skill RAM, a 1trăng tròn GB solid state boot drive sầu, a 1 TB WD Blue platter drive sầu, and a 520 W Seasonic S12II 80+ Bronze PSU, all in a Fractal Define Nano S mini-ITX case with a single exhaust and two front intakes. All tests were at 1080p resolution.

Just wow. For a thẻ lớn be this affordable—you know what, I’ll hotline it what it is, cheap—and still be able to lớn perkhung so well across a variety of titles is really something special. On high settings across my standard demo suite which includes Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Fallout 4, & Gr& Theft Aukhổng lồ V, the Palit GTX 1060 Dual 3 GB is able to lớn easily achieve 60 fps gameplay. It even has enough performance to lớn spare for a little more graphics eye candy; useful if you don’t have sầu a high refresh rate monitor. While it does dip into lớn the 40 fps mark when loading new scenes or when in far draw distance environments, the stutters don’t take too much from the immersion.


Value 4.0 / 5.0

This dual người variant of the GTX 1060 is one of the most affordable in the market, retailing for a little under PHPhường 10,000 for the 3 GB version. What it lacks in flair, it makes up for in where it counts—gaming. If you just want a solid performer and don’t care about physical appearances, fancy features, strong overclocks, & brvà wars, this thẻ should be your cup of tea.
