GeForce GTX 1060 3072MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
The GP106 GPU of the GeForce GTX 1060 is manufactured using the new 16 nm process and bases itself on NVIDIA's Pascal architecture. The GeForce GTX 1060 shines in comparison to its predecessors from the Maxwell generation with improved efficiency and impressive advances in performance. The GeForce GTX 1060 is the mid-range model from the GTX 10- series of graphics cards and is available with 3 or 6 GB of VRAM. The GeForce GTX 1060 is VR Ready and comes with an HDMI 2.0b port.

Compact GeForce GTX 1060 with Single-Fan Cooler
The EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming ACX 2.0 has a base clock of 1.506 MHz. With GPU Boost 3.0 this can be increased to a boost clock of 1.708 MHz when necessary. The VRAM is clocked at 4.004 MHz (effecitve 8.008 MHz). The card's cooling is provided by a single-fan cooler.
Affordable VR Ready Graphics Card from NVIDIA: The GeForce GTX 1060
The 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 EVGA at regular intervals is recommended.
