Is 1060 3GB enough for gaming?
The Geforce GTX 1060 3GB is capable of playing most modern game system requirements at high graphics settings. The 3GB version is normally around 5% worse than the GTX 1060 6GB full fat version in terms of sheer processing power.
How old is the GTX 1060 3GB?
A second reason to put together this test is that we want to see how a graphics card with just 3GB of VRAM is getting on in 2021. That alone should be quite interesting. As a quick refresher, the original GTX 1060 6GB was released back in July 2016, that’s 5 years ago.
How Long Will 1060 3GB last?
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.
