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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
