This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 1060 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 6GB Edition graphics card, when running 2019 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. 857 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

The GeForce GTX 1060 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 6GB Edition graphics card is predicted to return a playable performance on Death Stranding at 1080p of 39 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Need For Speed Heat which we saw got reasonable frame rates of 53 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Diablo 4, which is predicted to get 39 FPS under tests.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the GeForce GTX 1060 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 6GB Edition will run the upcoming game Death Stranding to a playable performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 78 FPS, Medium: 61 FPS, High: 41 FPS and Ultra: 29 FPS. Another game tested was Need For Speed Heat, L: 107FPS, M: 84FPS, H: 57FPS, U: 40FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Diablo 4, wih estimates revealing L: 78FPS, M: 61FPS, H: 41FPS, U: 29FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 1060 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 6GB Edition running at 1440p is a perfectly suitable selection of hardware for theis larger screen size. If a game at 1440p struggles a bit or experiences a frame drop then you can tweak settings in game to help get it stable. This might mean lowering it to medium or low in some specific options.

At 2560x1440 gtx 1060 will handle medium-high settings , for that resolution and high settings i would take gtx 1070, and now monitors: Dell S2417DG 450$ and Asus ROG Swift PG279Q 800$ ,Asus is better but Dell isn t bad too,check them both.

My friend owns a RX 480 8GB and i have 5-10FPS more than him in pretty much every game we play. So i guess this card is better but honestly it doesnt matter.. you will be able to play the same games with the RX 480.

If you plan on upgrading you can think about RX 480 crossfire if you are willing to get a motherboard that supports it and at least a 700W PSU. Else, GTX 1060 is pretty much a better choice.
