Nvidia has announced that a new GTX 1060 is due for release over the next few weeks, this time featuring 3GB of framebuffer memory. It's based on the same GP106 processor as the 'full-fat' GTX 1060 6GB, but there's an important difference in addition to the VRAM differential - this one has 1152 CUDA cores compared to the full complement of 1280 in the top tier model. Pricing is interesting - it'll cost $199 in the USA, with a £189 cost in the UK.
It's a bold move on Nvidia's part, and places the cut-down GTX 1060 on collision course with two AMD products - the RX 470, which we rather liked, and the four gig version of the RX 480 - assuming you can find one. Availability there, especially on the versions with an aftermarket cooler appears to be thin on the ground.
