Msi GTX 1060 Armor 3GB review - peace and performance

For a long time looking for a video card performance but most importantly quiet, to help me occasional games especially video editing.

Video cards are noisy

When the video card starts to rattle, like all the magic vanishes. Even when you want to enjoy the game, you hear footsteps opponent begins to rattle in one's plate.
In addition to the noise of the turbine or the fan, we also have "coil whine", which is an annoying whistle that video cards sometimes have.

It's not just noise!

When a video card moves very loud and is noisy, it disturbs us, but there is an interesting processor-level phenomenon that limits our performance:

Thermal throttling

Through this process, the video card graphic chip reduces its frequency to lower the temperature. Of course, reducing the frequency and means lower performance, so a video card that is too hot, is a much weaker video card.

MSI GTX 1060 Armor is super quiet.

Due to improvements bring Pasca graphics chips, video cards series 1000 are much quieter. Furthermore Pascal chips with good cooling solutions no longer enter the Thermal throttling, can only in extreme situations.

1060GB vs GTX video cards 6 3GB RAM

1060 GTX video cards come in two versions:
1. GTX has 1060GB RAM 6GB 6 and 1280 CUDA cores
2. GTX has 1060GB RAM 3GB 3 and 1152 CUDA cores
In reality the difference in performance is negligible besides the price difference. namely GTX 1060 5% is more efficient and 25% more expensive than the version 3GB.

It has to:
Affordable gaming laptop
Acquisition Guide gaming system components
Best phone for gaming (Thermal throttling almost 0)

And for my boys, especially from… me - the wallpaper in the video

How to behave on the desktop and in applications?

No matter what you do on desktop, YouTube 4K, 8K, video editing, image processing, etc. Permanent board that remains cool and quiet. Card is perfect for any situation.

How to behave in games?

In the 1080 running anything, no game to not run it over 120 fps
In 4k running all over 60fps if we walk least Settings
I should mention that in the tutorial, catch (all the 4K) I used Nvidia ShadowPlay that penalized with 10% performance.

  1. Cristi what CPU you?

  2. Cristi without anger, but here you contradict it. GTX 1060 6GB vs GTX 1060 3GB you said it is more performing with 5%. You do some real tests to see that you're wrong. And stop overclocking. I am not really an overclock fan, but there is also an XUUMXgb vs 6gb board. Still a lot of success on the tutorials.

    I think if you are passionate about geming .. worth the money you give the video card well understood you must have a computer good enough to take you the video card ..
    videototurial with the programmed to make a film you please .. .Bafta continued success!

  4. Play GTA V plate 3GB that of full HD with maximum details and you will see that you consume 3.2 GB Ram. I had to exchange the 6GB exactly this problem. 3GB today is insufficient FullHD resolution. If you want to have somewhat future you need a minimum of 4GB Video Ram recommended 6GB preferred 8GB

    • I put myself in tutorial settings almost all high, and I was 4K, repeat 4K. I think you set something wrong with your PC. Even the laptop in 1080, 50 over the high I was with 860M GTX video card.
      Regarding memory - it doesn't matter if you consume it all or not, the importance is performance.

  5. Hello Cristi.
    We next PC configuration:
    1) GIGABYTE Z270X-UD3
    2) Processor I7 6700K
    3) CPU Cooler Deepcool Gammaxx400
    4) ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 STRIX Gaming 6GB DDR5 192-bit (I changed that Radeon R370 4 GB) that you suggested me to escape.
    5) 32GB Black Memory HyperX FURY, DDR4, 2400MHz, CL15, 1.2V kit 4x8GB
    6) Source Corsair CX600
    7) Kingston SSD V300 (they want to change how fast) to get an SSD m2
    8) Seagate HDD BarraCuda® 2TB, 7200rpm, 64MB cache, SATA III.
    9) Case Zalman Z3 Plus white
    I am on a TV with a resolution of 1366 × 768 (81cm) and to my surprise at this configuration I have a drop frame in 8k because of the resolution or active vsync.
    I expect an answer this please very much.
