Nvidia’s latest line of GPUs (the 1080, 1070 and 1060) offer a huge boost in power and performance over the 900 series of cards. Even better, thanks to their Nvidia Pascal GPU architecture, the newest line pushes better performance at a cheaper cost.

The GTX 1060’s release window and price point has officially been announced. Depending on manufacturer, you can get the GTX 1060 for as little as $249. It will go on sale beginning later this month. This GPU offers the performance of a GTX 980, which goes for more than $400.

Here’s a bit of the spec rundown from Nvidia’s press release announcing the price point for the GTX 1060.

The GTX 1060 features 1,280 CUDA cores, 6GB of GDDR5 memory running at 8Gbps and a boost clock of 1.7GHz, which can be easily overclocked to 2GHz for further performance. Across the top gaming titles, GTX 1060 is on average 15 percent faster and over 75 percent more power efficient than the closest competitive product at stock speeds.

We’ll have more on Nvidia’s GPUs as it comes.
