ASUS STRIX 1060 BREAKDOWN
STRIX GPU COOLING SYSTEM
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.

ENHANCED GTX 1060 COOLING
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.
FANCONNECT CONTROLLED GPU COOLING
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.
STRIX 1060 EMBEDDED LED
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.
GPU DURABILITY & EFFICIENCY
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.
VR FRIENDLY GTX 1060 HDMI PORTS
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 VR READY
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.

The market for graphics cards priced at Â£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-Â£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.
Date Issued: 7th Jul 2016
NVIDIA is gearing up to launch the third-rung GeForce GTX 1060 with both reference Founders Edition form and with partner boards arriving at the same time, July 17.
