With a slightly overclocked core and based on NVIDIA's Pascal architecture, the MSI GeForce GTX 1060 6GT OCV1 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 is a DisplayPort 1.4 output, 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.

For cooling, MSI implemented a dual fan cooler. The dual fans cover more of the heatsink to take away heat more efficiently.

VRWorks

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.

NVIDIA Ansel

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.

CUDA

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.

question

I'm not a tech guy. Can I install 2 Asus (PB328Q)32 2K monitors & 1 LG (43UD79)43 4K monitor (preorder) to this card? Which port & cables should I use. Thank you so much!
Asked by: Thanh
yes you can use all three of those monitors on this card. I would stick with displayport for the connections but, you can use any of the available connections.

question

Is it possible to remove the cooler shroud and paint over it? The only thing stopping me from purchasing it is the red color scheme
Asked by: Anonymous
There is no mention from MSI that this is possible. But if it is, I would advise against doing so as this modification (though small) could affect the warranty of the card.

Asked by: Thanh
Yes you would be able to connect three monitors to this graphics card and they should still all be able to output at their native resolutions. The only concern might be the hz the monitor refreshes at.

Would this be a good choice to run x plane 11 with a three monitor setup? What other options would you recommend if not?
Asked by: Anonymous
This option or any of the stronger models such as 1070 or 1080 will handle 3 displays with X plane nicely.
