NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition Up Close

Here are close-up pictures of the various aspects of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition graphics card.

Gamers with older monitors will be glad to note that the GeForce GTX 1060 will come with a dual-linked DVI port, in addition to 3 DisplayPorts and a HDMI 2.0B port.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 has a TDP of just 120 W, so it only comes with a 6-pin PCI Express power connector. However, it does not support SLI, so there is no SLI connector.


Founder’s Edition Advantage

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition was designed to be the ultimate expression of NVIDIA’s gaming vision. Hence, they crafted it with premium materials and components, including a faceted die-cast aluminium-framed shroud for strength, rigidity and looks.

Aesthetics aside, the GeForce GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition comes with an improved cooler built around a radial fan and an improved aluminium heatsink. The new heatsink features two copper heat pipes and over 50% more surface area than the GeForce GTX 960.

It also comes with dual FETs for both GPU and memory power supplies, coupled with a low-impedance power delivery network and custom voltage regulators for better power efficiency. All these Founder’s Edition features provide greater overclocking headroom, allowing these cards to hit clock speeds of 2 GHz!

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition Size

For those already measuring their cases to see if the GeForce GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition will fit, we measured the card and added the measurements for your convenience.

As you can see, the GeForce GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition is “technically” a 7″ long card, but its cooler extends 7.5 cm or 2.95″ beyond the PCB.
