WINDFORCE 2X GPU COOLING SYSTEM

Advanced GTX 1060 Cooling

The WINDFORCE 2X cooling system features two 90mm unique blade fans, alternate spinning fan design, pure copper composite heat-pipe, heat pipe direct touch technology, semi-passive 3D active fan, and protection back plate together delivering an effective heat dissipation capacity for higher performance at lower temperatures.

INTELLIGENT GRAPHICS CARD FANS

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 Windforce2 1060 airflow by 23% over traditional fans.

DIRECT TOUCH GPU COOLING

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.

GTX 1060 COPPER PIPES

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.

WINDFORCE2 BACKPLATE

Protective Backplate

Glorious black back plate provides the solid protection, strengthens the structure and inspires the passion for gaming.

GIGABYTE XTREME ENGINE

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.

GTX 1060 CONNECTIONS

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

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 - 3GB
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 - 3GB
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 WINDFORCE2 OC 6GB GDDR5 VR Ready Graphics Card, 1280 Core, 1556MHz GPU, 1771MHz Boost is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BUY WELL MADE PRODUCT GREAT PICTURE QUALITY RUNS ALL MY GAMES WITH EASE RUNS VERY QUIET

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth an upgrade I had a geforce 650 and was considering upgrading to a cutting edge card. The 1060 isn't quite cutting edge, but for the price it gave me a massive performance boost. Would recommend for this kind of upgrade. If you're starting with a 900 series, then you might want to hold off, or splash out on something newer. I used to be Asus through and through, but this is my second Gigabyte product (the other is my MB), and they have impressed me with their ability to put together well crafted little boards. This GPU is nice and cool, quiet and surprisingly sturdy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Card, Good FPS I bought this card to through in a HP envy that had a decent CPU (i7 4790) but a R9 270. The upgrade was a good investment the FPS increase was indeed worth it. The low power ment that it could use the exsisting HP PSU and it fit in fine, apart from having to remove the extra holding bar that went over the R9 270. The card is quiet and most the time when not running a gamel the fan doesnt even spin. At max settings on CSGO it was on 250+FPS (I know this is an old game but thats the main game it needed to play). 3D Mark Fire Strike 10878 3D Mark Time Spy 4086 Good quality Good FPS

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent budget oriented GPU Going to start this review off by mentioning that if you want "high fps" on anything more than 1920x1080, this isn't the GPU for you. This video card is generally for people that want to run games at such resolution. Whilst you can easily get away with using this video card for higher resolutions (namely 1440p, which has been named as a 1440p king by some, but I'm not too sure, you're going to need one if not two 1080 chipset GPUs for 4K gaming) risking quite a few frames though. Benchmarks: Minecraft (a great benchmarking game if you ask me!) at 600fps with rather heavy shaders and a 128x (high resolution packs require more powerful machines) at 26 render distance (very very far) was achieved, though it usually sits around 470fps. Overwatch: Ultra settings (1080p) at a very comfortable 120fps (which is in fact the worst it was, usually sat at around 20fps above, which is rather impressive, seeing as I'm using a 60Hz monitor (so such FPS isn't needed, and I usually have vsync on anyway (I just turned it off on these games for benchmarking) I don't have doom on this machine (yet) but I'd expecting to be getting (at least) 100fps on very high (maybe ultra) with this card. Temperature-wise, my fans have only began spinning during a workload twice (they start spinning at around 57 degrees celcius) and noise isn't an issue with this card. Temperatures are exceptionally low, especially seeing as I have quite a warm room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great graphics card Great graphics card and great value for money! I highly recommend:)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good performance but lacks good cooling This card performs like any other 1060 but you are better off spending a little extra on the G1 Gaming model that has a much nicer cooler and a metal back plate rather than the plastic back plate this model has and the G1 Gaming is also silent, this model can get a bit noisy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and cost effective The GTX 1060 is an easy choice for the serious gamer who needs excellent graphics and performance without breaking the bank, and Gigabyte deliver excellent design with this variant of the 1060. On Doom,this card achieved 90-120 FPS constantly on the highest graphics options at 1080p. On No Man's Sky, the card achieved 80-90 fps constantly on ultra graphics at 1080p. The card features excellent cooling thanks to the Windforce design from Gigabyte, and the fans are quiet too. Overall, an excellent card capable of playing today's most demanding games with high settings.
