Gigabyte announces heavily-overclocked GTX 1060 video card

Gigabyte has expanded its GeForce GTX 1060 line up with the addition of a new model called GeForce GTX 1060 Xtreme Gaming 6G.

The main feature of the new card is that it comes heavily overclocked right out of the box. In the case of this new Gigabyte video card, both the GPU and the memory have been overclocked. The GPU runs at 1620/1847 MHz in Gaming Mode and at 1645/1873 MHz in OC Mode. The 6 GB of GDDR5 memory runs at 8164 MHz in Gaming Mode and at 8316 MHz in OC Mode. Judging from these specs the GeForce GTX 1060 Xtreme Gaming 6G is the fastest GTX 1060 video card on the market at the moment. The hardware of this Gigabyte graphics card gets cooled by a modified WindForce 2X cooler, which features two 100 mm cooling fans. The fans work only when the GPU temperature exceeds a certain level. Thus in some cases the GeForce GTX 1060 Xtreme Gaming 6G can be completely noiseless.

Made with only high quality components, the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 Xtreme Gaming 6G sports LED lights in the cooling fans and HDMI ports at the back. The card needs additional power and this is why it comes with a single 8-pin power connector. You should also have a roomy case – the video card is 280 mm long.

No word on pricing as of now.
