According to reports, the third Pascal-based card from NVIDIA will be made official next week and could go on sale starting 14th July.
Along with the announcement date, key specifications of the card have also been “confirmed” now, thanks to leaked slides. The GP106 based graphics card will include 1280 CUDA cores and come with 6GB of GDDR5 memory. While the core clock remains unknown for now, it is tipped to come with a boost clock of around 1700 MHz, which points to a compute performance of approximately 4.4 TDLOPs. The leaked slides also confirm a TDP of 120W and that the card will draw power using a single 6-pin power connector. Display connectors on the Founders Edition card include three DisplayPort 1.2, DL-DVI and an HDMI 2.0b port.
One of the slides compares the GTX 1060 against the AMD Radeon RX 480. If the numbers on the slide are to be believed, the GTX 1060 will be a significantly better performer than the RX 480, while being up to 1.4 times more efficient.
