Baked into Pascal
Nvidia has been showing off its new rendering technology which it has backed into the latest series of ‘Pascal’ GPUs.
Retail availability and reviews coming on July 19
Nvidia has now officially unveiled its third Pascal-based graphics card, the mid-range Geforce GTX 1060, which will have an MSRP of US $249.
Game Ready for DiRT Rally VR
Nvidia has released its newest Geforce 368.69 WHQL Game Ready drivers which will bring all the optimizations for the new DiRT Rally VR game, which heavily focuses on virtual reality experience.
Founders Edition priced at US $299
Just a couple of hours before the rumored official paper launch for the Geforce GTX 1060, a set of leaked slides have revealed the final pieces of the puzzle, the price and the availability date.
I had a small wager sitting on the fact that when the RX 480 was released that there would be a mysterious leak of benchmarks that proved that Nvidia’s Pascal-based GTX 1060 was much better even when it had not been released.
Company burning the midnight oil
AMD is burning the midnight oil fixing a problem on its new Polaris card which it thought was not an issue last week.
Possible launch on July 7th
Earlier rumors that Nvidia has pulled the Geforce GTX 1060 launch forward to July might be true as an alleged set of slides with full specifications and performance details has leaked online.
1000 Geforce GTX 1080 at launch
OcUK, the Overclockers UK has sold more than 1000 Radeon RX 480 cards at launch. Although to be fair to Nvidia, the etailer added that they also managed to shift 1000 Geforce GTX 1080 cards on their launch too [so much for the rumour that Nvidia sampled only small volume to the etailers.ed]
Short PCB and similar blower-style fan
It appears that there is some truth in the recent rumors that Nvidia wants the GTX 1060 on the market as soon as possible since that same graphics cards was spotted in Hong Kong retail.
