30% Cooler & 3x Quieter Performance

DirectCU III GPU Cooling Tech

The GTX 1060 will achieve up to 30% extra cooling performance when gaming thanks to the exclusive DirectCU III cooling technology. This tech featured on the GTX 1060 direct-GPU contact heat-pipes that will transport more heat away from the GPU and out-perform the reference designs.

*Image for illustration only. Actual design may vary


Max Air Flow 105% More Air Pressure

Triple Wing-Blade GPU Cooling

DirectCU III features triple 0dB fans engineered with a patented wing-blade design that delivers maximum air flow and improved 105% static pressure over the heat sink, while operating at 3X quieter volumes than reference cards. The 0dB fans also let you enjoy games in complete silence and make DirectCU III the coolest and quietest graphics card in the market.


GPU Controlled Fan Headers

When gaming it is commonly found that GPU temperatures are higher than that of the CPU, due to chassis fans usually referencing CPU temps only - resulting in inefficient cooling. The Strix 1060 graphics card features two 4-pin GPU controlled headers that can be connected to system fans for targeted cooling on your GTX 1060.


ASUS 1060 Aura RGB Lighting

ASUS Strix 1060 features Aura RGB Lighting on the shroud, these Strix graphics cards are capable of displaying millions of colors in six different effects. Experience a personalized gaming system with GTX 1060.


A More Reliable GTX 1060

This 1060 series, like various other ASUS boards, has had premium alloy components intergrated into their graphics card designs reinforcing the overall reliability. Super Alloy Power II components greatly enhance the Strix 1060 efficiency, reduce power loss and achieve thermal levels that are approximately 50% cooler than previous designs.


Enjoy Immersive Virtual Reality Experience

ROG Strix graphics cards have two HDMI ports for connecting a VR device and three display at the same time, so you can enjoy immersive virtual reality experiences anytime without having to swap cables.


GeForce® GTX graphics cards provide a powerful next-generation platform for the ultimate immersive virtual reality experience. Rigs and cards marked with "GeForce GTX VR Ready" ensure that your VR games will be optimized with a best-in-class GPU.

Immersive VR requires seven times the graphics processing power of traditional 3D apps and games. NVIDIA's unique set of features - such as multi-res shading - mean you get the right level of performance, image quality, and latency to ensure your VR experience is nothing short of amazing.

Date Issued: 24th Aug 2016

The market for graphics cards priced at £250 has been hotting up since both AMD and Nvidia released GPUs based on their latest architectures. AMD has been more eager to pinpoint the sub-£200 market with two GPUs - the Radeon RX 480 and Radeon RX 470. Specifically, if you can find one, the Sapphire RX 480 Nitro 4GB is arguably the best card south of this all-important figure.

ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 ROG STRIX OC GAMING 6GB GDDR5 VR Ready Graphics Card, 1280 Core, 1620 MHz GPU, 1847 MHz Boost is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice performing gpu This card is huge, many will encounter issues with the size, even me it was a pain. Installed on a horizontal board and it's fine, would be scared to install on vertical board with the weight but sure it must be fine for this. Installation easy and performance doesn't disappoint.
Date published: 2018-04-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall outstanding value for money GPU Brilliant performance in games and runs smooth/quiet. Overall a brilliantly priced graphics card for people who want an upgrade without having to invest too much money.
Date published: 2018-04-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does a reasonable job Does a reasonable job and has extended my PC lifespan for a year or two. most games new are running at 50 - 60+ frames at 1080p on high to ultra (depending on the game). Note that I'm running PCIe 2 board and an i7 920 CPU which may cause bottlenecks; new boards may see better results. Card runs cool and quiet < 60 c under load.
Date published: 2018-04-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Upgraded from GTX770 and decided to go for the ASUS GTX1060 ROG Strix. Light gaming use only. Excellent product that does exactly what it says on the box and does it very well. Very happy customer.
Date published: 2018-02-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't go wrong with Asus Asus consistently make awesome products for gamers and the 1060GTX, while not top of the range, provides great performance and bang for buck.
Date published: 2017-08-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Card! If you are looking to play games at 1080p with stable frames between 30 to 60 at max settings this card is enough to get you there if its paired up with a good CPU. I was originally thinking of getting a GTX 1080, but all my friends said it was only worth it for future proofing my rig as that card is overkill for most games today. The value to performance is a bit off as there are other brands of this card out there for less money, but I only ever buy Asus so that is fine for me. Overall great card that could be cheaper but its always worth it to spend extra for a brand you can trust.
Date published: 2017-08-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent 1080p upgrade This is a monster card but loads of room in my antec case, so not a problem. I cannot believe how silent this is but my old card was a HD3870 that was getting on a bit, if this lasts any where near as long as that card has done (still works now), then it will be a worthwhile and badly needed upgrade!
Date published: 2017-03-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from exeptional quality Intel Core i5-4670K, 4000 MHz motherboard ASRock Z87M Extreme4 I have upgraded my system change only GTX 760 to this new Asus GTX 1060 Now I can run every new game on ultra settings with very good fps! the quality of the card is the best I have ever seen with the supported software easy to tune. Very silent(actually the most silent card I have!most of time the fans do not even turn on but still the coolest card ever! In my case NZXT H440 did not went over 65 degrees Celsius on max usage also impressive only just need one8 pin electric supply connector Outstanding quality! I love this card Very big card! in small case can have space problems! You Tube your friend you can find tons of videos:)

How do I run three display port screens
Asked by: smegger01
Hello, This GPU has 2 HDMI, 2 DisplayPort and 1 DVI cable. To connect a third monitor via DisplayPort you would need to use an adaptor to connect to the DVI or HDMI ports. Regards,
