Just shortly after Nvidia officially announced their GTX 1060 today. AIB partners such as Gigabyte, MSI, Inno3D and iChill were quick to show off their custom GTX 1060s. We were expecting to see custom cards after a while of the launch of the GTX 1060. Seems like these AIB partners were really starving to show off their custom GTX 1060 Graphics Cards.
UPDATE: The iChill 3 Fan GPU is actually a GTX 1070, please disregard
Here are the cards in action
All of these custom cards add their own unique design and spices to the cards with a few minor changes to the power delivery connectors. Some cards are featuring 8 pin connectors to ensure better overclocking while iChill went all out with a three fan design for the GTX 1060, we really appreciate cooling in our graphics cards. One thing to note is that none of the AIB partners disclosed the backplate designs of their card.
Nonetheless, this fast releasing of cards from Nvidia’s partners may be a sign to something, you guess it. Anyways it’s a tough war ahead for the GTX 1060 and the RX 480, only time will tell who emerges victorious.
