MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X Smiles for Camera

Twin Forzr VI:

The MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X pictures reveal a dual-fan design based on MSI’s Twin Forzr VI cooler. It will use MSI’s TORX 2.0 fans which produce 22% more pressure and 13% more airflow than traditional fans because MSI has used 2 types of fan blades. This allows for cool and silent gaming performance. The fans will stop spinning when the GPU is under 60 degree Celsius. It also features premium thermal compound and a robust heatsink design.

“Two TORX 2.0 fans of superior quality and design will outperform a triple-fan cooler of lesser quality any day of the week.”
MSI.

MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X Uses Single 8-PIN Connector:

The MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X will require a single 8-PIN PCIe power connector to work. This will allow for better overclocking and increased performance.

Specifications:

The MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X will feature 6 Gigabytes of GDDR5 VRAM. It will support VR and DirectX 12, along with some remarkable technologies from Nvidia such as ANSEL. No details about the clock speed or memory speed are out yet. The bus-width of the MSI GTX 1060 is not confirmed yet, but it is likely to be 192-bits wide. With 1,280 CUDA cores, the GTX 1060 will be a serious competitor to the AMD RX 480. Nvidia claims that the GTX 1060 will rival the performance of the GTX 980 while consuming considerably less power. According to Nvidia, the TDP of GTX 1060 is 120W (980’s TDP is 165W).

Talking about inputs, the MSI GTX 1060 will feature one HDMI 2.0a connector, three DisplayPort 1.4 ports and a single Dual-link DVI port.

Release Date and Pricing:

Nvidia didn’t say exacly when GTX 1060 will be released. However, it is expected to come this month, probably around July 19. The MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggest Retail Price) of the GTX 1060 is $249. So the MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X will be priced around this price point. The Founder’s Edition GTX 1060 from Nvidia will cost a $50 premium, at $299.

    the 960 was crap and so this will be as well and lol at those specs.

    here is an good review of the rx 480 vs 970 ssc an honest review no set ups like i hav seen

    and you guys think thhe 1060 will stand a chance?…lol

    gtx 1060// rx 480

    4.4 TFLOPs/ 5.5 TFLOPs winner amd

    8gb vram/ 4/8gb vram winner amd

    192-bit/ 256-bit winner amd

    1280 cores/ 2304 stream processors winner amd

    1700 boost clock/ 1266 boost clock winner nvidia but u can over clock rx 480 to 1600

    async compute for dx12 no/async compute for dx12 yes winner amd

    winner rx 480 this gtx 1060 is crap like the 960 but the bias media will spin its better and put out fake benchmarks.

      Dude, the 1060 isn’t even out yet. No point in comparison. Nvidia claims it matches the performance of 980, so lets see. Fingers crossed.

      • Hvd

        the specs have already been released.

        • Afrasiyab Khan

          Specs are released. But no performance numbers. 🙂

          • Hvd

            and the specs show amd has the stronger card in most areas
            here you go spec for both you can see who is the winner.
