Advanced GTX 1060 Cooling

The WINDFORCE 2X cooling system is the outcome of both clever and efficient design. It features two 90mm fans that spin in alternate directions, have a unique blade design and are 3D active fans with an RGB LED status indicator. Alternating fans reduces air turbulence increasing dissipated heat.


GIGABYTE 1060 Unique Fan Blades

The GTX 1060 airflow is spilt by it’s triangle fan edge, which is then guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the GIGABYTE Gaming 1060 airflow by 23% over traditional fans.


Heat Pipes Help With Cooling the GPU

The Gaming 1060 features Direct Touch technology. This tech as seen above utilizes heat pipes made of pure copper and are shaped to maximize the direct contact area to the 1060’s GPU so they can carry generated heat away from your GPU. This keeps your gaming and media going for longer and displaying as smooth as can be.


Composite Heat-Pipes Embedded 1060

Through a combination of thermal conductivity and phase transition the Gaming GTX 1060 efficiently manages the transfer of heat between two solid interfaces - which increases 29% of cooling capacity.


Added Style of the GTX 1060 Card

When it comes to the LEDs featured on the G1 Gaming 1060 they are there for both style and convenience. Firstly, the GIGABYTE logo will simply make your graphics card and PC case (through ambient lighting) look that bit more suave and will follow whatever instructions you have set it. On the other hand, the ‘Fan Stop’ LED is a little smarter, providing the fan’s status at a glance. Depending on the fans status the ‘Fan Stop’ indicator will behave differently.


Protecting 1060 GPUs in Style

Enjoy stylish design on bth the top and bottom of the GIGABYTE Gaming 1060. This graphics card features a stylish metal backplate; coloured black it offers rigidity and protection of the structure whilst adding a sleek, clean look to the card.


LED Indicator for 1060 Power

The G1 Gaming 1060 card is equipped with an LED just above your 8-pin slot to indicate voltage stability issues. When the PCI-E voltage is unstable you’ll have no trouble discovering it as the LED will light up. When the LED is on the power is disconnected, when it is off the power is stable and if it is flashing then the 1060 is experiencing an abnormal power supple.


Complete Control of 1060 and Features

Features on the GTX 1060 GIGABYTE’s Xtreme Engine allows you to adjust clock speeds, voltage, fan performance, RGB lighting effect and power target. The OSD setting can be monitored and tuned in real-time according to your own preference through this intuitive interface.


HDMI 2.0b / 3x DisplayPort 1.4 / Dual-Link DVI

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.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 G1 GAMING V2 6GB GDDR5 VR Ready Graphics Card, 1280 Core, 1594 MHz GPU, 1809 MHz Boost is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing for 1080p I recently upgraded to this amzing card from an AMD R9 270x, let's just say it was a huge improvement. It uses hardly any power, before I was worried my Corair VS 550 wouldn't be enough but it dam well is. Combined with my i5 4660 @ 3.5 my average benchmarks on games such as The Witcher 3 and GTA 5 on ultra settings are around the 70-80 mark. However, I wish I could enjoy this amount of frames with the card being quieter, don't get me wrong the fans are amazing, keeping the card at a cool 50-60 degrees C whilst also keeping quiet. But that's not my problem... COIL WHINE, I don't know if it's Gigabyte or NVidia but when under load this car d can sound like a hoard of crickets! All in all, I love this card, I just wear headphones more than often now anyway, it's amazing and the light up LEDs and fan stop light are a great added bonus. :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid peace of kit ! Bought this when I unfortunately had problems with Saphire ex 480, 8gb, radeon card. Fitted in a corsair 250D case no problems, whole installation was painless. Nvidea driver download and sett up made simple. Gigabytes utilities download smooth. Mainly play strategy turn based games at 1080 and it runs cool. So, so far so good. Worth the extra bucks for less hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just buy it. This card has revamped my old phenom system and am playing the new doom at full settings minumum frame rate of 60 so you cant say fairer than that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 series GFX card good value for money I upgraded from a Nvidia GTX 560 to this Nvidia GTX 1060 so a big jump up and the difference was excellent for not a lot of money, i can now run all my games on ultra and it will support up to four screens although i only use two monitors plus a TV to stream everything from my PC, power consumption is less then my old card which needed two x six pin plugs this new card just needs one x eight pin plug, my only concern was making sure to check it will fit length wise into my case which it did but i can see for some people this could be an issue but apart from that i'm very happy.

Questions & Answers


What cables come in the box with this card?
Asked by: HaydnG
None, you won't need any, if it's the PCI-e power connectors you're looking for they should be with your power supply :)
