In the wake of AMD’s new RX 480 launch taking the mid-range segment by storm, it was imperative that NVIDIA unveil the GeForce GTX 1060, and they have officially done so today. With the aim to compete with the AMD RX 480, the NVIDIA GTX 1060 will be priced at $249 once it hits the market globally on July 19th. Rumours had pegged an earlier date for retail sales (July 14th), but this announcement should put those rumours to rest. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 will feature 6GB of GDDR5 memory. While AIB cards might take a while to arrive, you will be able to get the Founders Edition by paying $299, $50 more than AIB cards. We are yet to receive word on the India pricing, but hopefully it should be competitive enough to match what AMD’s RX 480 is selling for in India. Given the fact that both the GTX 1080 and the GTX 1070 were priced 34.5 percent greater than international pricing, we can easily calculate the prices for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 as well. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Founders Edition could very well be priced at about Rs. 27,099, and the non-reference partner cards could be priced at Rs. 22,599. These are not the official prices, and we’ll get you the same once we have confirmation.
