One week after the launch of the Radeon RX 480, NVIDIA is lifting the lid this morning on the GeForce GTX 1060 Pascal graphics card with pricing at $249+ USD while delivering GeForce GTX 980 class performance. I already have been testing the GeForce GTX 1060 under Ubuntu Linux, but unfortunately that embargo doesn't expire today... But here's the run-down on all of the technical details on the GTX 1060.

Today's just the soft announcement for the GeForce GTX 1060 while it will begin shipping worldwide on 19 July. Not until that hard launch date does NVIDIA's embargo expire for being able to provide GTX 1060 benchmarks, but at least all of the technical details are fair game today as well as pictures/videos.

The GeForce GTX 1060 will start at $249 USD while they will again offer a Founder's Edition GeForce GTX 1060 that is priced for $299 USD.

The GeForce GTX 1060 boasts 1280 CUDA cores, 1.7GHz boost clock, 6GB GDDR5 video memory with 8Gbps memory speed, one six-pin power connector, and 120 Watt TDP.
