The upcoming GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 will be monster video cards based on the 16nm FinFET process and the new Pascal architecture while the GTX 1080 might rock GDDR5X, the GTX 1070 will reportedly include GDDR5. But what about the mid-range?

Well, according to the latest reports, the GTX 1060 will arrive as the possible GTX 1060 Ti - rocking a huge 6GB of GDDR5. The GTX 960 for comparisons sake, rolled out with 2GB and 4GB versions at the beginning of 2015. The upcoming GTX 1060 (or Ti) will be using the GP104-150-A1 GPU while the GTX 1080 uses the GP104-400-A1 and the GTX 1070 with its GP104-200-A1 GPU.

The huge 6GB framebuffer will be great to see, as NVIDIA better positions itself in the mid-range market - which is what AMD is looking to stomp down on with its huge Polaris push starting later this month.
