NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB axed, will arrive as GTX 1050 in December

NVIDIA’s answer to AMD’s mid-range video card, the RX480, is soon coming out in the form of the GTX 1060. Though there are some rumors floating about the a 3GB and 6GB version, NVIDIA has given a clarification statement.

We have heard that NVIDIA has decided against releasing the 3GB variant of the GeForce GTX 1060. Instead they are in complete focus with the standard 6GB variant. This makes sense, as releasing a mid-range card with 3GB of VRAM that’s meant to compete with AMD’s Radeon RX 480 which comes in 4GB and 8GB flavors doesn’t make much sense.

NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1050 to release in December

Our source added that NVIDIA will instead release the GeForce GTX 1050 in December with 3GB of RAM. Which makes much more sense. We should see these plans materialize very quickly, as soon as NVIDIA confirms the existence of its GeForce GTX 1050, which shouldn’t be too far away now.
