ASUS STRIX GTX 1060 O6G GAMING Video Card Review

We are reviewing the ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1060 O6G GAMING video card. We’ve put it through the tests and overclocked this video card as high as possible. We will compare performance with an overclocked ASUS ROG STRIX RX 480 O8G GAMING video card and find out which is better performing in real-world gaming.


Battlefield 1

We are using the latest version of Battlefield 1 for testing. Note that we are now testing in the Multiplayer mode of this game, we will no longer be testing the campaign mode. Multiplayer mode is being tested in a 64 player server in the Aimens map.

We will be testing in DX11 for now until we can take a closer look at DX12 in multiplayer. Since playing multiplayer is a completely dynamic and every changing environment the playthroughs are different each time. It wouldn’t look right on a graph, instead we are going to show a bar graph of the average FPS taken over multiple runs in multiplayer. We found the results to be consistent.

In Battlefield 1 we found that we were able to play this game well in multiplayer with both video cards overclocked at 1440p with the highest in-game settings. Overclocking the ASUS STRIX GTX 1060 O6G GAMING provided 10% better performance. That 10% is what allowed us to play smoothly at 1440p. The ASUS STRIX RX 480 overclocked is very close in performance, but the ASUS STRIX GTX 1060 does edge it out by a small 3.5%.
