According to SweClockers (reliable source), NVIDIA does not plan to announce any Pascal GP106 based graphics card during Computex 2016. This means we will not see GeForce GTX 1060 and GeForce GTX 1050 (successor of the GTX 960 and GTX 950) until the end of this year. Recently the company had released its GeForce GTX 950 with a consumption of 75W that allows you to save the PCI-Express connector for power. The source suggests that Pascal GP106 cards will not require additional power connectors. So it might fit into the same power envelope as GTX 750 series or GTX 950, but still AIB partners of NVIDIA will launch variants with power connector for Overclocking.

NVIDIA Pascal GP106 (GTX 1060 & GTX 1050) will not arrive until fall


Pascal GP106

Compared with the GM206 (presumably), GP106 has a slightly smaller size, from 170 to 200 square mm (the size of GM206 is 227 sq mm). We can assume that the Pascal GP106 will consist of two CPU clusters streaming multiprocessors 5 each, which gives us 1280 CUDA cores.

At Computex 2016, we would see NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070, NVIDIA’s high-end segment GPUs which will initially compete against the upcoming graphics cards from the red camp, we are talking about AMD Radeon R9 490X and Radeon R9 490.
