Reports are surfacing that the company will launch the GP106-based GeForce GTX 1060 with a 120W TDP, 1280 CUDA cores on 10 SMs, with 80 TMUs and 48 ROPs. There'll reportedly be 3GB and 6GB models on a 192-bit memory interface rocking GDDR5.

NVIDIA already has two 16nm FinFET-based cards on the market in the form of the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070, but it will be hurting in the coming weeks in the mid-range market with AMD chewing up the $199-$239 market with its next-gen Radeon RX 480 video card. NVIDIA will need to maintain its market dominance in the mid-range, but it needs a new card to hit that market - so enter the GTX 1060.

We will have more information on the GTX 1060 as it surfaces.
