    "The GeForce GTX 1060 3GB will cost $199 USD but it isn't just have the video memory at 3GB GDDR5 to the 6GB found on the earlier GTX 1060 models"

    Your English is killing me bro.

      Is it like Polaris, $200 on paper but sold for 300€, or is this actually a $200 card?

        Does this tempt you anymore at all as a Linux user ...
        Until they have upstream, open source drivers that are as performant as AMD's, I will not even consider them. Of course I don't play the most demanding games, so performance is a lesser concern to me than dicking around with proprietary drivers.

          Its interesting to see NVidia chasing AMD here. I think once Zen hits the market, we'll see intel doing the same in the CPU market. Competition is good!

            Sounds like RX 470 competition, but they should put different name on this too... less VRAM, lower clocks you know

              GTX 960 2GB costs about 200€ at my location, so I doubt GTX 1060 3GB will cost less than 250€.

                I forget, does the 1060 support SLi? If so, isn't SLi still pretty picky about which GPUs you combine? I'd imagine this would make SLi even more complicated than it already is.

                  No SLI support on 1060.

                    Well it's from 219€ in Germany and from 239€ in Finland, availability is now null so no idea where price will settle.
