GeForce GTX 1060 Dual OC 3072MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
The ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 Dual O3G – An Overview
- Dual-Fan Cooler
- High GPU Base Clock: 1,594 MHz
- Massive GPU Boost Clock: 1,809 Mhz
- 3 GB VRAM
- Aggressively-Clocked VRAM: 4,004 MHz (effectively 8,008 MHz)
- Single Connector: 1x 6 Pin
Dual-Fan Cooler & Factory OverclockingThe ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 Dual O3G has a base clock of 1,569 MHz and GPU Boost 3.0 allows the base clock to be increased automatically to 1,784 MHz should additional performance be required. The cooling of the card is provided by a dual-fan design under a white shroud. The Tweak II software from ASUS allows the ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 DualX O3G Gaming to switch into "OC" mode. The OC mode raises the base clock to 1.594 MHz and the boost clock to 1.809 Mhz. The memory is clocked at 4,004 MHz (effectively 8,008 MHz). The cooling of the graphics card is provided by a dual-fan cooler design with a white cooler cover.
Affordable VR Ready Graphics Card from NVIDIA: The GeForce GTX 1060The 6 GB GDDR 5 VRAM of the GTX 1060 are connected to a 192 bit memory interface on the GPU, allowing a memory bandwidth of 192 GB/s. The GPU 106 chip comes with 1.280 shader units, known as CUDA Cores at NVIDIA.
The GTX 1060 series of graphics cards support DirectX 12 as well as current gaming technologies like NVIDIA Ansel, Gameworks, Warp, Stereo X, BR Audio, PhysX and SMP (Simultaneous Multi Projection). SMP 4.0 offers huge advantages for VR, curved displays and multi-display setups.
Thanks to SMP, Pascal now supports 16 simultaneous Viewports thus allowing fundamentally more realistic graphics on multiple monitors, curved displays, or in 3D applications. VR in particular benefits from the new technology as it supports the simultaneous rendering of two Viewports in a single pass. By using multiple Viewports the rendered image requires a smaller number of pixel calculations, massively increasing performance in VR applications.
The GeForce GTX 1060 works with a TDP of only 120 Watts, and a power supply capable of supplying at least 400 Watts is recommended. The GeForce GTX 1060 offers an HDMI 2.0b por, three DisplayPort 1.4 connectors and a Dual-Link DVI output. The HDMI port supports up to HDCP 2.2 and is capable of sending and receiving encrypted signals.
In order to exploit the full potential of the card in the long term, downloading and installing new drivers from NVIDIA or ASUS at regular intervals is recommended.
