EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming Wrap Up

Performance Summary: For all intents and purposes, the EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming performs just like an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Founder's Edition. The cards have similar GPU and memory clocks, and performed within a percentage point or two (give or take) across the board. Any differences in performance can be attributed to slightly different average boost clocks, that result from the different coolers on the cards, or the margin of error in a particular benchmark. In terms of competing offerings, the EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming trades blows with the Radeon RX 480, though it occasionally nipped at the more expensive Radeon R9 Nano's heels.

As much as we love the biggest, baddest graphics cards around here, there's something about high-performance, small form factor products that's just as cool. The 6GB EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming that we tested is a $249 graphics card with enough muscle to churn through most games at 1440P or lower resolutions, in a form factor and power envelope fit for a mini-ITX gaming build (cheaper 3GB options are also available). There are more powerful cards with similar form factors, like the Radeon R9 Nano, but they're also much more expensive and consume more energy. If you're looking for a great all around graphics card for a small form factor build that won't break the bank, the EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming is definitely worthy of consideration.
