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

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.
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.
