Introduction

MSI has really nailed the GeForce GTX 10 series launch, with a top to bottom stack of graphics cards that are all great products. From the higher-end GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming Z (which we're going to be reviewing very soon) to the GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G which we have here today, MSI has killed it.

NVIDIA's answer to the Radeon RX 480 was the GeForce GTX 1060, which is a more expensive but faster graphics card. MSI did their tweaks to the GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G, resulting in a better graphics card that runs cooler, and performs better.

This is what we've come to know and love from not just MSI, but most of the custom AIB partners and their graphics cards shortly after the launch of a new card. MSI's new GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G is a great card for 1080p and 1440p gaming, which is something you'll find out more about in the review.

Pricing & Availability

The new MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G is on Amazon right now for $299.99, compared to the GTX 1060 Founders Edition which costs just 99 cents less directly from NVIDIA, making this MSI graphics card a fantastic value for money proposition.
