MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G review – the powerful little brother

Some people expected NVIDIA to release the GTX 1060 sooner, but I believe the manufacturer just waited for AMD to make its new series debut. And that’s exactly what happened. Shortly after RX480 saw the light, NVIDIA is launching the GTX 1060. Today you can read the MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G review.
