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

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.

Reviews
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 WindForce2 OC 3GB GDDR5 VR Ready Graphics Card, 1152 Core, 1556MHz GPU, 1771MHz Boost is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Card, Nothing to complain about Great little card, i get nice smooth frames with this card on plenty of games such as assassins creed origins, the new Resi Evil etc.. without compromising on the graphics to much. Thermals and noise are pretty low to boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great card, decent price. This is your best bet for a high tier card without breaking the bank. Will munch any game out right now at 1080p 60fps no problem. Even in Fallout 4 with lots of graphical mods it can easy run an average of 35-40fps in Boston. The card is quiet as a mouse even at full blast, but you'll likely rarely hear it get there at all as the fans have a feature where they don't even turn on until the card is under a specific amount of load, yet still runs decently cool. Would definitely recommend, and especially from this website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Gaming Card Being a heavy Gamer this card handles every game i can throw at it and still maintains, Low Noise, good FPS and superb performance. Even handles my 3D applications with ease. Well worth the money
Date published: 2018-05-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great card for £200 I think this is a great card for the £200 price point, with an i5 and 8gb ram, I'm getting 60-80fps in PUBG and Fortnite, and many other games Would be reluctant to pay more that £210 though
Date published: 2018-02-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good bang for buck, +45fps on most of the unigine benchmarks, Linux Linux OpenSUSE 42.2, using Nvidia drivers, produced +45fps on most unigine graphics benchmarks. KDE has never looked so glossy. Knocked for value as graphics cards market is silly at the moment due to bitcoin madness
Date published: 2017-09-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good! It's really worth it this card! I have got fx6200+ amd 730 chipset and i need to replace a higher one cause too slow for this great card :) Powerful,silent great :)
Date published: 2017-09-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy days Plays everything I have thrown at it at 1080p 60fps, often with power to spare so you can play with resolution scaling make things a bit sharper looking. Great success.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 WindForce2 OC 3GB GDDR5 Bought this graphics probably about a month ago. This was an upgrade from a AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB, I would have to say when I took it out of the anti static bag what a beauty. This card runs all the latest games I own on max settings and is quiet when not in use, best bang for the buck! Every time I buy things from scan.co.uk they are brand new, well packaged and timely delivery. I would advise anyone who purchases this card to watch out when INSTALLING DRIVERS as if you have on board video from your motherboard, DO NOT install the AUDIO drivers for this card as Windows 10 will override your audio as I found out and it was NOT a pleasant experience :)
