    We review the G1 GAMING GeForce GTX 1060 from Gigabyte. It is 20 bucks cheaper compared to the founders edition, but comes factory overclocked on that custom PCB fitted with a WindForce 2X cooler, Bac...

    Any chance of getting Vulkan benchmarks for Doom and DOTA2 included in new reviews?

    DOTA2 no, but Vulkan results are in the works for future reviews.

    BTW for the 1060 in Vulkan mode, the results in-between OpenGL and Vulkan are 0..

    Keep in mind that Async isn't yet supported for Nvidia GPUs in DOOM Vulcan mode. Seems like big majority of hardware media and general public missed this fact.

    I wonder if it will make it to nvidia, they once said there soon be async enabled in maxwell drivers... lies.

    This is the results, AMD benefits from vulkan and dx12 far more than nvidia, on the other hand AMD opengl performance are so bad, they need to be punished for it as well.

    this is different with pascal, because it does actually have gains from async unlike maxwell.

    Beautiful little card, thanks for amazing job and review Hilbert. :)

    Regarding Async, im sure they will. Pascal is still fresh and future drivers will sort it. Recent weeks we already see some improvements (latency hotfix driver for example).

    RX480 beat the crap out of 1060 easily with Vulkan, this might change with the promised patch, if it's real, and might not indicate future games, but it is nice results of itself, we see how much pascal gains from dx12 vulkan, though i have many doubts.

    Nice review!
    I used like Gigabyte... but this time, this card was at the same temperature of the founders edition???
    And do not understand Nvidia... founders edtion is worst then all custom design and it is more expensive???
    Someone would explain it to me?
