FX504 delivers the performance that enables users to play the latest games and multitask with ease, while at the same time provides unmatched toughness and reliability throughout its lifespan. With the launch of new GTX 1060 products in the series we aim to tap a higher range of audience. The overwhelming response to the series in the past few months has also encouraged us to revise pricing of the previously existing models, hence offering power-packed features under an extremely sound budget.
