Old thread from 2016 - https://forums.anandtech.com/threads/eurogamer-gtx-1060-3-gb-vs-6-gb.2484900/
Some people in the old thread were confident that 3GB would not be an issue in the future while some were sure about it. Although the cards are 5 years old, its obvious which camp has been proven correct. 1060 6GB is a viable card today for gmaing 5 years after launch while the same cannot be said for the 3GB variant.You can go through the old thread to read some of the hot takes and interesting responses and see how things have turned out. Ofcoursethe 3GB model was $50 cheaper but in the long run it would have made itself more than worth it.
