Details surrounding the next generation of NVIDIA graphics cards, rumored to use the 10X0 naming convention, have been trickling out over the past few months. In March, rumors began to spread that the card would be available near the end of this month with the high end GTX 1070 and 1080 mentioned specifically. Images leaked last month showed a cooling shroud with GTX 1080 clearly visible. We have now got our hands on some details about the mid range card, known as the GTX 1060, with the expectation that it will utilize 6GB of GDDR5 video RAM. Also included in the details is that the "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."

6GB is a good idea. At this point, I wouldn't even consider a brand new GPU with less than 6GB of RAM for gaming.

Tempted about the prices. My coworkers are very interested in VR and I got a GTX 970 to sell for each :)
