Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Announced, Available from July 19 Priced at Rs. 22,999

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Announced, Available from July 19 Priced at Rs. 22,999

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Nvidia promises performance matching that of the GeForce GTX 980
  • The GTX 1060 will compete head-to-head with AMD’s Radeon RX 480
  • GTX 1060 graphics cards are aimed at value-conscious gamers

Nvidia has announced its new GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, aimed at mainstream gamers. Graphics cards based on the new GTX 1060 will be available worldwide from partner companies including Asus, MSI, Gigabyte and Zotac on July 19. There will be only one configuration featuring 6GB of GDDR5 RAM. Pricing in the US is $249 (approximately Rs. 16,858) but the official price in India has not been announced yet. We can expect it to be considerably higher to account for import duties and distribution costs.

UPDATE, July 8 2016: Nvidia’s recommended pricing for India has been confirmed at Rs. 22,999.

The new GeForce GTX 1060 comes hot on the heels of Nvidia’s high-end GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 GPUs, and seems to be aimed at the same market segment as AMD’s new Radeon RX 480. The timing of the launch, and of earlier leaks, could be a direct shot at AMD. Interestingly, the Radeon RX 480 with 4GB of RAM is priced $50 lower in the USA at $199, but AMD’s higher overheads give Nvidia a decisive advantage here in India. However, the GTX 1060’s price could make it less popular than its predecessor, the GTX 960 which sells for under Rs. 18,000.

Gamers will benefit from the same Pascal architecture that the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 are based on, although the actual GPU is a smaller unit codenamed GP106, rather than the GP104 which the other two are based on. The GTX 1060 has 1280 programmable graphics processing units and can run at up to 1.7GHz when under full load. The 6GB of GDDR5 memory has a 192-bit pathway to the GPU, resulting in memory bandwidth of up to 8Gbps. The maximum power draw is rated at 120W, and cards featuring Nvidia’s reference cooler will have a single 6-pin PCIe connector.

x

nvidia_geforce_gtx1060_specs_nvidia.jpgMost notably, the GeForce GTX 1060 dispenses with SLI connectors altogether. Nvidia had de-emphasised SLI with the launch of the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070, first saying enthusiasts would need a special key to unlock it, and then limiting it to two cards down from four. Now, the company says its research shows that only a miniscule number of people ever used SLI on mid-range cards, and it believes that one GTX 1060 delivers enough performance on its own.

Nvidia will offer a Founders’ Edition version of the GTX 1060, but it has a simple plastic shroud and blower fan rather than the elaborate metal vapour-chamber cooler that gives the GTX 1080 Founders’ Edition its premium pricing. It will be available only in France, Germany and the UK, directly through Nvidia’s online store, priced at EUR 319/GBP 275. Partner companies will offer GTX 1060 cards with their own custom cooler and PCB designs, not Founders’ Editions with their own branding, as is the case with the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070.

GTX 1060 cards will have three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs as well as a single HDMI 2.0b port and one dual-link DVI-D port by default. Partners might change this arrangement around on their custom designs, with extra HDMI outputs most likely replacing DisplayPort to allow users to connect a VR headset and monitor at the same time.

GeForce_GTX_1060_Back_nvidia.jpgNvidia’s new Pascal architecture, which underpins the entire GeForce 10-series, is the company’s first on a new 16nm process, which results in greatly improved performance and lower power consumption than previous offerings. Pascal has also been designed to enable simultaneous multi-projection which allows for multiple perspectives of the same scene to be rendered in one pipeline pass, greatly improving performance for VR and multi-monitor experiences. SMP support is built into the Unreal 4 and Unity engines, and will be coming to over 30 titles including Obduction, Raw Data, Unreal Tournament, and Adr1ft.

The company also points out that the Ansel screen capture feature which debuted with the more expensive cards is also fully supported, and will debut in July with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst.

Nvidia promises equal or greater performance from the GTX 1060 as from last year’s GeForce GTX 980, plus significant overclocking potential. Stay tuned for a full review once these cards are available in the market.

Xiaomi

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM

— the world’s first device equipped with Snapdragon 650 processor in India.

Read more from our special coverage on “XIAOMI”

  • Xiaomi says 75% of phones sold in India made locally

Available in two variants – 2GB RAM, 16 GB ROM for Rs 9,999 and 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM for Rs 11,999 – the smartphones will be initially available on official Mi website and e-portal Amazon.com from March 9.

“We are extremely excited to launch Redmi Note 3 in India, which is the start of many firsts for us in 2016 and more than meets the demands of our hardcore Mi fans,” Xiaomi vice president Hugo Barra said in a statement.

“With Redmi Note 3 we are redefining what you can get in the category of ‘phablets’ below Rs 10,000 in India. 2016 is a significant year for us and we are looking forward to introduce even more amazing products in India in the year to come,” he added.

Two of the many features of Redmi Note 3 are its metal body and a huge 4,050mAh battery that can last a full day on a single charge. The device supports 5V/2A Qualcomm Quick Chargetechnology, charging up to 50% in one hour and taking only three hours for a full charge.

Xiaomi’s first-ever smartphone with a fingerprint sensor, Redmi Note 3 uses capacitive scanning technology for accurate, secure and fast performance, unlocking the device in just 0.3 seconds.

Due to its impressive MIUI 7, the scanner can be used for unlocking apps, accessing hidden folders, and even taking a front or rear camera selfie.

The 5.5-inch display phone weighs only 164 grams and measures only 8.65mm at its thickest point.

The device also incorporates “Reading Mode” that cuts down blue light emitted by the display, which reduces eye fatigue.

The new Wallpaper Carousel feature in MIUI 7 delivers stunning wallpaper images daily, so your lockscreen looks refreshingly different every day.

Powered by Snapdragon 650 processor, the first Qualcomm Technologies’ chipset equipped with ARM’s two Cortex-A72 performance cores and four A53 CPUs makes it exceptionally fast.

It features the latest Qualcomm Adreno 510 GPU, which provides impressive graphics performance for an unparalleled gaming experience without heating problems.

“Qualcomm Technologies is very pleased to work with Xiaomi on their latest smartphone Redmi Note 3, featuring the Snapdragon 650 processor designed to deliver amazing performance, thanks to its powerful 64-bit capable hexa-core CPUs and super-fast 4G LTE connectivity,” said Qualcomm India president Sunil Lalvani.

The phone comes with 16MP rear camera, which has dual ISPs for more powerful post-processing of photos.

It also comes equipped with Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) for faster focusing, as well as “Local Tone Mapping”, which adjusts contrast at a pixel level to deliver images with much better contrast levels.

Redmi Note 3 has been designed for full compatibility with India’s cellular networks and supports all Indian LTE bands allowing the users to fully utilise the Voice over LTE (VoLTE) technology.

The smartphone will also be available on Flipkart, Snapdeal and offline partners soon.

The company also announced the launch of its colourful range of powerful bluetooth speakers in the last week of March – around Holi in India.

The speaker has a 1,500mAh battery and gives a eight-hour playback, while aluminium body speakers, which measure less than a pencil case, are available for Rs 1,999.

The company also announced that their Mi5 smartphone, which was recently launched in China, would be launched in India next month.
