Introduction

GigaByte GeForce GTX 1060 Windforce OC 6G is a factory overclocked graphics card that is based on the Pascal architecture and features the effective WINDFORCE 2X cooling technology. It provides a quantum leap in performance compared to the preceding Maxwell architecture and comes with an increase in memory bandwidth, energy efficiency and VR support.

What is the architecture and specifications?

It is built utilizing the Pascal architecture and the manufacturing process is the very fast FinFET technology (16 nm size). It is well designed and has good aesthetic properties. It has a variety of supported video signals, namely DVI, DispalyPort and HDMI and has the corresponding ports to match the video signals at its front part: two DVI-D ports, a solitary HDMI port and a solitary DispalyPort port. The latter two have maximum resolutions of (4096 X 2160) and (7680 X 4320) respectively. The card has a Core clock that runs at 1582 MHz and boost clock 1797 MHz for OC mode and Core clock of 1556 MHz and boost clock 1771 MHz for gaming mode. NVIDIA VR works and NVIDIA GameWorks are some of the incorporated features that will deliver low latency and low lag performance while supporting virtual reality and providing truly cinematic gaming experiences.

What is its performance?

GigaByte GeForce GTX 1060 Windforce OC 6G is not all about high resolution gaming; it is that and more. Intensive and demanding games can use the featured 1280 cores to hasten the tasks using CUDA. The card runs sufficiently cool and with minimal noise thanks to the incorporated WINDFORCE 2X cooling system. This system has a pair of semi-passive 90mm fans and a heat pipe that is made of pure copper composite. This card also uses the heat pipe direct contact technology, meaning the heat pipe is in direct contact with the GPU so as to effectively dissipate heat. A unique design of the fan blade as well as the alternate way in which the dual fans spin reduces the turbulence of the air to allow better air flow. The blade fan design is such that, incoming air is split by the triangle shape of the fan edge so that it can be smoothly guided from side to side of the 3D stripe curve that is on the surface of the fan. This by effect increases air flow by 23 percent compared to the old fan designs. The fan is also semi active, implying that it will stay off until a certain predetermined temperature is reached. Means are there to ensure that it is not easy to attain such temperatures, unless in very demanding games. You can therefore do your gaming in peace and quiet. The composite heat pipe is designed for phase transition on top of thermal conductivity and by effect increases the cooling capacity by 29 percent.

Conclusion: Should I buy it?

This is a card packed with features that will the way you view and experience gaming. The performance is just amazing and the cooling system will rarely remind you of its existence. It overclocks easily and effectively. VRworks, NVIDIA Ansel and NVIDIA GameWorks work together to ensure that gaming smooth. This one is definitely recommended.
