Lets look at the GeForce GTX 1060 Zotac AMP 6GB Edition game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2019. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. 851 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 1060 Zotac AMP 6GB Edition can run FIFA 20 at 1080p and saw it return strong frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 320 FPS, Medium: 267 FPS, High: 196 FPS and Ultra: 142 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Diablo 4 is predicted to return a playable 37 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

For just a little cheaper you can buy a GTX 1060 mini and overclock the boost clock to the same as this card.

You can save some money and get a Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Mini graphics card and overclock the boost clock to that of the AMP! version. I have done that and performance is approximately the same. You can use the GTX 1060 6GB graphics card with 1440p if you have the right processor. I would suggest either a i5 7600k or a ryzen 1700X for 1440p ultra gameplay. With at least 2666 MHz RAM.
