Gigabyte GTX 1060 overview

  • 1Description

With an overclocked core, a WINDFORCE 2X cooling system, and based on NVIDIA's Pascal architecture, the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 WINDFORCE OC 6G Graphics Card provides major improvements in performance, memory bandwidth, and power efficiency over its predecessor, the high-performance Maxwell architecture. It also introduces innovative graphics features and technologies that redefine the computer as the platform for playing AAA games and taking full advantage of virtual reality via NVIDIA VRWorks.

The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs. There are three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs in addition to an HDMI 2.0b output and a DVI-D Dual-Link output. The GTX 1060 is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU's 1280 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA or other APIs.

This card features Gigabyte's WINDFORCE 2X cooling system. The cooling system uses two 90mm fans. The airflow is split by the triangle fan edge and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface. The 3D Active Fan feature provides semi-passive cooling, which means the fans will remain off when the GPU is under a set loading or temperature for low power gaming.

VRWorks Graphics includes a simultaneous multi-projection capability that renders natively to the unique dimensions of VR displays instead of traditional 2D monitors. It also renders geometry for the left and right eyes simultaneously in a single pass.

VRWorks Audio uses the NVIDIA OptiX ray-tracing engine to trace the path of sounds across an environment in real-time, fully reflecting the size, shape, and material of the virtual world.

NVIDIA PhysX for VR detects when a hand controller interacts with a virtual object, and enables the game engine to provide a physically accurate visual and haptic response. It also models the physical behavior of the virtual world around the user so that all interactions -- whether an explosion or a hand splashing through water -- behave as if in the real world.
With Ansel, gamers can compose the gameplay shots they want, pointing the camera in any direction and from any vantage point within a gaming world. They can capture screenshots at up to 32 times the screen resolution, and then zoom in where they choose without losing fidelity. With photo-filters, they can add effects in real-time before taking the shot. And they can capture 360-degree stereo photospheres for viewing in a VR headset or Google Cardboard.
With CUDA, NVIDIA allows applications to hand off CPU-intensive tasks to the GPU. Your GPU is no longer just used for rendering graphics, but it can provide teraflops of floating point performance and accelerate application tasks, from real-time video rendering to fluid dynamics simulation. CUDA is used in many applications and games.
G-SYNC Ready
When used with a monitor that has G-SYNC hardware installed, the monitor's refresh rate will sync and lock with the graphics card's output frame rate. Establishing this sync removes tearing and stuttering which can result from conventional fixed screen refresh rates, especially important for gaming in stereoscopic 3D. An additional benefit of G-SYNC is reduced lag so gamers will benefit from the improved command response time as well.
NVIDIA GPU Boost 3.0
Boosts the card's clock speed in real-time based on the target temperature. If the card is running below the set target temperature, GPU Boost 3.0 will increase the clock speed to improve performance. The target temperature can be reset depending on your preference so you can have the card run more quietly for everyday tasks and older games, and run at full tilt during intense high-resolution gaming sequences.

    Gigabyte GTX 1060 reviews

    GeForce GTX 1060 WINDFORCE OC 6G Graphics Card is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better upgrade than expected My computer used to only be able to handle modern games like GTA V on near the lowest settings with my GTX 660, but after the upgrade to the GTX 1060 GTA V can play on all max settings. For very demanding activities like driving sometimes the road disappears, but the settings can be turned down some and still look great. also has the best deal on the GPU. A final word of advice on graphics, monitors/TV's are a significant factor, and I highly recommend 120hz for PC. If you are unsure if it's worth it then simply watch a demo at a local store with TVs on display.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Steady Works incredibly well. I am very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bang for your buck This with i5 6600k is fantastic. I recently purchase Battlefield 1 and this monster runs it 80+ fps all graphics on ultra.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent -- Stable, High Performing, Quiet, Stunner I am upgrading from a beloved ASUS GTX 660 TI. I targeted a 1060 because I knew I wanted an NVIDIA card instead of the new AMD 480, and I knew that I wanted to stay at 1080p gaming and spend less than $300. This 1060 is an absolute 1080p beast, and performs just as I could have hoped. The temps are wonderfully stable, the card is noticeably quieter than my 3 fan 660 TI, and as someone who doesn't like to tinker with OCing much due to fear of ruining my PC (and not really needing any performance boost, I'm only on a 60 hz monitor so any FPS over 60 just doesn't make any difference) I love that the clock comes with a nice boost. That being said, I can definitely push 100 frames on modern games with this card, even with an older (3rd gen) processor. I'd imagine with a newer processor this card would really be ideal for a 1080p 144hz g sync monitor (the ideal setup). Comparing this card to other 1060s, I think 1. you should really get the 6gb version, it's worth the extra cash and 2. this is as solid of a 1060 as you can get. Gigabyte is an excellent company, and they have really made a nice card here. I'd recommend this one at $275 over any other 1060 that is priced much higher. Any benefit you receive for that extra cash is purely negligible -- brand name, color, etc. AKA, things that don't matter. If you plan on remaining at 1080p for the foreseeable future, this card will blow you away at an amazing price. If you want to move up in resolution or are a stickler for more than 60 frames, this will be fine too, but you *may* want to move up to a 1070 in order to future proof your system and really get the specs that you want. But, if your budget is a bit limited and you're looking to spend less than $300 on your GPU, this is as good as it gets. Wonderful card, I'm truly blown away by it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast card, super quiet! Amazing upgrade from my old MSI GTX 660Ti. Huge difference in performance. This card is also incredibly quiet. It doesn't even turn the fans on until something like 30% load. Uses way less power than my old card. I like the backplate, nice touch from Gigabyte. Works well with my i5-4440 rig. Highly recommend this card to any gamer doing 1080P. Will even handle 2k resolution gaming.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ehh haven't tested yet It is not compatible with my motherboard so I need a new motherboard now, and needed a new psu, it only needs 120w which is awesome but my previous gpu didn't require power running to it. Looks awesome

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Graphics card I bought this for my first gaming computer build and I have to say I'm very impressed. I have thrown plenty at it and it can handle most every game at max settings getting 60+ fps. Overall a great buy.
