Benchmarks: Star Wars Battlefront, Ashes of the Singularity
Star Wars Battlefront is a heavy memory user but this didn’t seem to upset the 3GB GTX 1060. Throughout our test the entire 3GB capacity was allocated and yet the performance came out much the same.
Even at 1440p, the 3GB model was just 6% slower with an average of 54fps, which is faster than the RX 480 8GB.
The missing SM unit and VRAM didn't impact the 3GB GTX 1060 in Ashes of the Singularity as we see the exact same DX11 and DX12 performance at 1080p.
This time the 3GB model was just 4% faster at 1440p when compared to the 6GB model, so another great result for the reduced GPU.
