GP106 GPU with 1152 CUDA cores

Following the official launch of the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 with 3GB of memory, which is quite different from the original GTX 1060 6GB graphics card, EVGA has unveiled its own lineup with a total of five different versions.

Unlike the earlier launched Geforce GTX 1060 6GB, which was based on GP106 Pascal GPU with 1280 CUDA cores, the 3GB version of the same card comes with a further cut-down GP106 GPU with 1152 CUDA cores. As rumored earlier, the reference GTX 1060 3GB works at a base GPU clock of 1506MHz, GPU Boost clock of 1708MHz and comes with 3GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 8000MHz and paired up with the same 192-bit memory interface.

As noted, EVGA has prepared a total of five different versions, including a reference one, SuperClocked (SC), SuperSuperClocked (SSC), FTW and FTW+ versions.

Unlike the reference version, the SuperClocked version will use the same single fan dual slot cooler but with a copper core and  a heatpipe and which draw power from a single 6-pin PCI-Express power connector. The SuperClock version works at a slightly higher 1607MHz base and 1835MHz GPU Boost clocks, with memory at reference 8000MHz, and it features the same 3+1-phase VRM.

Unlike those two, the SuperSuperClocked (SSC) and both FTW and the FTW+ versions are going to feature EVGA's well known ACX 3.0 cooler and draw power from an 8-pin PCIe power connector. The GTX 1060 3GB SSC version will work at the same clocks as the SC version, 1607/1835MHz and feature a 4+1 VRM.

The FTW and FTW+ version are both based on a custom PCB with 6+1-phase VRM and work at 1620MHz base and 1847MHz GPU Boost clocks for the FTW and 1632MHz base and 1860MHz GPU Boost clocks for the FTW+ version.

The price will range from US $199.99/€219 for the reference one up to probably close to US $300 for the custom FTW+ version. Unfortunately, only the reference one is currently listed at the EVGA site so we are not clear on the precise price or the availability date for the rest of the lineup.
