For the 1060 with 3GB of memory, I would say about 3 more years of new games at 1080p with medium level settings. The 6GB version might get you to 4, 4.5 years. This assumes that ray-tracing in graphics engines or some new graphics library doesn’t take off and make all current cards look terribly slow.

At 1080p the 3GB version was typically 5-7% slower and then up to 12% slower at 1440p, but overall decent performance in this title. Last up we have F1 2020 and no surprises, the 3GB 1060 plays fine, trailing the 6GB model by a 6-8% margin.
