Reviewers Liked

  • Well suited to FHD or QHD gaming
  • Great availability from numerous board partners at launch
  • Around 20% cheaper than the 6GB GTX 1060 but less than 10% slower a comfortable compromise for 1080p gamers
  • Cheaper than 6 GB version
  • Overclocked out of the box (most offerings)

Reviewers Didn't Like

  • Lacks SLI support
  • Fewer shaders than 6 GB version
  • Besides having less VRAM, the 3GB GTX 1060 has one SM unit disabled and yet retains the 6GB model's full 120W TDP
