Rumor: reference-cooled GeForce GTX 1060 breaks cover

Get your saltcellars ready, folks. Now that the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 are on the market, it would only make sense that Nvidia has plans to begin filling out its lower-end lineup with Pascal GPUs, as well. A poster on the r/nvidia subreddit apparently got in touch with someone in possession of a reference "GeForce GTX 1060" card recently, and they were able to grab a high-resolution snap of the purported card. Feast your eyes:

The poster didn't offer any other information on the card beyond this photo, but given what we know about Pascal chips so far and the past progression of Maxwell through the marketplace, it seems likely this card will use a new, cut-down GPU paired with some amount of GDDR5 RAM. It also seems likely to play in the $200-$300 range that AMD seems to be targeting with its Radeon RX 480. Until we hear something official, however, that's all just speculation. Enjoy the eye candy in the meantime.
