    my best speculation is that they sit on a lot of gp104 chips that are not qualifying to become a 1070 ... so chop em down and make em 1060's !

    yeah would make more sense since it is different hardware but if cudas are the same memory is the same bus is the same ...logic says it will perform identical no ? i guess we will see ? it puzzles me too

    I don't like them re-using an old name for new hardware. I like the 1065 as well.

    I have a better idea, release a new damn card with an architecture that isn't 2+ years old.

    So, how many different HW configuration GTX 1060 will have?

    This is what happens to the market when the only competition is one generation behind.

    They should bring back LE names for their cards as they brought back Ti so this card would be 1070LE, 1060 3GB would be 1060LE, etc.

    My vote goes on 1060ti as well! Hell I loved my 660ti.

    This will be a lovely card for 1080p. The 1060 is almost 2 years old now, this will make it the king of affordable GPUs for 1080p, if the price is right, of course. It'll be cheaper than the 1070 so shouldn't be too bad.

    Well according to Hilbert's article he wrote the performance of this card will be no different to a normal GTX 1060, instead it's just using the GP104 silicon of the GTX 1070 with shaders disabled so that it has the same number of shaders as the current GTX 1060 - so to quote Hilbert in his article:
    "Now before you get all excited (or not), the specifications in terms of graphics memory and 192-bit memory bus, shader count (1280), clocks and TDP etc, would remain the same and as such the performance levels would be the same as well."

    This means that NVidia don't really have to name this product any differently to a normal GTX 1060, because to the consumer it performs the same & the technical specs are the same - it's not really a different product.

    Nvidia recently said it wants to keep everything simple, but by adding letters to the end of Items doesn't make anything simple.
    There should just be numbers, as some people have suggested 1065.
    This also annoys me about motherboards as well.
    Whats with all the letters and numbers?
    A320, B350, X370... whats wrong with just 1 letter and the 3 numbers? Series A/Model 3 Version 20/50/70... there is really no reason to make things so complicated.
    Whoever markets products, really loves confusing the hell out of people.

    Here comes the 1060ti that was expected 18 months ago.

    You can get higher performance even with less shaders as they probably won't shave off ROPS.
