    There won't be a formal launch for cards using the upgraded memory on the 1060 & 1080, it's meant for AIB card makers to specify the upgraded memory on premium, overclocked versions of their cards.

    Any idea how I check if there is an updated BIOS for my card? I have an MSI GTX 1060 GT OC purchased on launch day. I've tried the MSI LiveUpdate app, but it doesn't run on my AMD-based PC (known bug).

    Cheers mate!! I love this laptop obviously compared to my 1080 Ti in the desktop it's not as powerful but its G-sync 75hz and the 1060 plays better at 1080p 75hz than the Ti does at 4k so I'm very happy :D

    Would a 1060 run Overwatch on 2560x1440 ok? Debating whether or not to upgrade the second PC.
