GeForce GTX 1060 may not support SLI

GeForce GTX 1060 may not support SLI

With presumably a few days left before its launch there’s more and more information on the GeForce GTX 1060. The first technical pictures of this video card have become available and they show one peculiarity – the GTX 1060 reference design board completely lacks SLI bridge fingers – a fact, which makes us think that the GTX 1060 may not support SLI at all unless NVIDIA has come up with a way to make this mode possible without a SLI bridge.

In addition the GTX 1060 comes with a PCB that is shorter than the card itself with the cooler being about 50 per cent longer than the PCB. The 6-pin power connector of the card is located towards the end of the video card and all the needed internal high-current wires are soldered to the PCB. This may cause a problem if you want to use a liquid cooling solution. On the other hand the arrangement of the memory chips hints that the GTX 1060 does have a 192-bit memory bus as expected.

The new video card is expected on July 7.
