Pascal is optimized for performance per watt. The GTX1060 is 3x more power efficient than the Maxwell Architecture.
16nm FinFET Process
This The GTX1060 is the first gaming GPUs designed for the 16nm FinFET process, which uses smaller, faster transistors that can be packed together more densely.
Pascal-based GPUs are the first to harness the power of 6GB(3G) of GDDR5 memory. The 192-bit memory interface runs at 8Gb/sec.
Increases in bandwidth and power efficiency allow the GTX1060 to run at clock speeds never before possible -- over 1506 MHz -- while consuming only 120 watts of power. New asynchronous compute advances improve efficiency and gaming performance. And new GPU Boost™ 3 technology supports advanced overclocking functionality.
Groundbreaking Gaming Technology
NVIDIA is changing the face of gaming from development to play to sharing. New NVIDIA VRWorks™ software features let game developers bring unprecedented immersiveness to gaming environments. NVIDIA's Ansel™ technology lets gamers share their gaming experiences and explore gaming worlds in new ways.
