GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 G1 GAMING
The GTX 1060 G1 GAMING raises the game with Super Overclocked GPU, the signature WINDFORCE technology, and RGB Illumination for gamers who crave superior cooling and overclocking performances for next-gen gaming with style.
Through GIGABYTE’s GPU Gauntlet Sorting technology, the top-notch GPU cores built in G1 GAMING cards push overclocking capability to the limit without compromising the system reliability. The highest-grade components augmented with 6+1 phase design make the MOSFET working at a lower temperature to provide more stable voltage output for superior overclocking.
To keep this beast running cool, the WINDFORCE 2X cooling system incorporates dual 90mm alternate-spinning fans with the unique blade design and 2 composite copper heat pipes with direct touch to the GPU, together keeping the card cool and quiet even when heavily overclocked. Fans are also regulated when the system is running at low load or idle. An LED fan indicator provides a user-friendly, instant display of the fan status.
The card brings vividness to PC builds with its full-spectrum RGB and lighting effects using the newly developed XTREME Engine utility software. At rear, a sleek-looking metal back plate adds rigidity and protection to the card. The smart power LED indicator helps to ensure the system stability at all times in case of any power abnormality.
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 WINDFORCE OC
Fitted with a solid back plate, the GTX 1060 WINDFORCE OC edition runs sufficiently cool and quiet with the help of WINDFORCE 2X cooling system, featuring two semi-passive 90mm fans, a pure copper composite heat pipe with direct touch to GPU, and unique blade fan design.
Alternate spinning fans further reduce turbulence to a minimum. Via the intuitive interface of XTREME Engine utility, gamers can enjoy smooth gaming right away with a simple click of the button to overclock the card without the hassle of any manual adjustment.
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 Mini ITX OC
Measuring 17cm in length, the small form factor GTX 1060 Mini ITX OC edition is perfect for building compact gaming rigs or HTPC. Equipped with 2 composite copper heat pipes with direct touch to GPU and a single 90mm unique-blade fan with semi-passive cooling, the custom-designed cooler can dissipate heat effectively, while running remarkably quiet even under loads. The card is built using Ultra Durable chokes and capacitors, making the MOSFET working at a lower temperature for more stable voltage output.
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 D5
The GTX 1060 D5 edition features the dual-fan WINDFORCE 2X cooler with counter-rotating fans and auto fan stop under light loads, as well as RGB lighting with virtually unlimited color options, making it a smart choice for those looking to build a GP106-powered gaming rig on a budget.
