Product information - GeForce GTX 1060 OC WindForce 2X, 6144 MB GDDR5The GP106 GPU of the GeForce GTX 1060 is manufactured using the new 16 nm process and bases itself on NVIDIA's Pascal architecture. The GeForce GTX 1060 shines in comparison to its predecessors from the Maxwell generation with improved efficiency and impressive advances in performance. The GeForce GTX 1060 is the mid-range model from the GTX 10- series of graphics cards and is available with 3 or 6 GB of VRAM. The GeForce GTX 1060 is VR Ready and comes with an HDMI 2.0b port.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 OC WindForce 2X - An Overview
- Semi-Passive WindForce 2X Cooler Design
- High GPU Base Clock: 1,582 MHz
- Massive GPU Boost Clock: 1,797 Mhz
- 6 GB VRAM
- Aggressively-Clocked VRAM: 4,004 MHz (effectively 8,008 MHz)
- Powered by a Single External Connector: 1x 6 Pin
Gigabyte OC WindForce 2X Cooler with Factory OverclockingThe Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 OC WindForce 2X has a base clock of 1,556 MHz and GPU Boost 3.0 allows the base clock to be increased automatically to 1,771 MHz should additional performance be required. Gigabyte's "XTREME" software allows the GTX 1060 OC WindForce X2 to be switched over to "OC" mode, which raises the base clock to 1,582 MHz and the boost clock to 1,797 MHz. The video memory is clocked at 4.004 MHz (effective 8.008 MHz).
Gigabyte's WindForce 2X Cooler design provides semi-passive cooling consisting of two heatpipes, two aluminium-finned heat sinks with large surface areas, as well as two 90 mm fans. The fans' unique triangle-edged design results in fan blades that provide up to 23 % greater airflow when compared to reference coolers.
Affordable VR Ready Graphics Card from NVIDIA: The GeForce GTX 1060The 6 GB GDDR 5 VRAM of the GTX 1060 are connected to a 192 bit memory interface on the GPU, allowing a memory bandwidth of 192 GB/s. The GPU 106 chip comes with 1.280 shader units, known as CUDA Cores at NVIDIA.
The GTX 1060 series of graphics cards support DirectX 12 as well as current gaming technologies like NVIDIA Ansel, Gameworks, Warp, Stereo X, BR Audio, PhysX and SMP (Simultaneous Multi Projection). SMP 4.0 offers huge advantages for VR, curved displays and multi-display setups.
Thanks to SMP, Pascal now supports 16 simultaneous Viewports thus allowing fundamentally more realistic graphics on multiple monitors, curved displays, or in 3D applications. VR in particular benefits from the new technology as it supports the simultaneous rendering of two Viewports in a single pass. By using multiple Viewports the rendered image requires a smaller number of pixel calculations, massively increasing performance in VR applications.
The GeForce GTX 1060 works with a TDP of only 120 Watts, and a power supply capable of supplying at least 400 Watts is recommended. The GeForce GTX 1060 offers an HDMI 2.0b por, three DisplayPort 1.4 connectors and a Dual-Link DVI output. The HDMI port supports up to HDCP 2.2 and is capable of sending and receiving encrypted signals.
In order to exploit the full potential of the card in the long term, downloading and installing new drivers from NVIDIA or Gigabyte at regular intervals is recommended.
