According to the source, Nvidia is going to release a version of 3D-card GeForce GTX 1060 GP104 GPU and 3 GB of memory. Recall that the existing version of 3D-card GeForce GTX 1060 built on the GPU GP106 and equipped with 6 GB of memory. Mention of the new map already seen in the driver in the line NVIDIA_DEV.1B84 = “NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB”
The configuration information of the GPU is shown in the table are preliminary. Allegedly, a basis map will serve as a model Pascal GP104-140. It is not excluded that in fact, some GPUs will have more CUDA cores, but they will be blocked by the software at the BIOS level.
The production of such kind of Nvidia aims to sell processors GP104 with some number of defective blocks, which were unsuitable for the GTX 1080, 1070 and 1070 Mobile as they have less than 1920 CUDA cores working. By the way, this means that the power consumption of the new 3D maps will be higher energy consumption GeForce GTX 1060 GPU GP106.
According to preliminary data, the version of 3D-card GeForce GTX 1060 GP104 GPU and 3 GB of memory will be offered only in the Chinese market.
