Zotac prepares small-sized GTX 1060 video card
There’s good news for people with small-sized PC cases – Zotac will very soon allow them to enjoy all the benefits of NVIDIA’s latest and greatest Pascal GPU architecture.
It turns out that the company works on a new small-sized GeForce GTX 1060 video card that will be known as GeForce GTX 1060 Mini. The card will come with a shortened PCB that will allow it to fit inside small computer cases. The best part is that the GTX 1060 Mini will not arrive with cut-down tech specs – the GPU will run at 1506 MHz and will reach 1708 MHz in Turbo mode, while the memory will run at 8000 MHz over a 192-bit memory bus. Zotac plans two versions of the card – with 6 GB and with 3 GB of GDDR5 memory. In both cases users must use the provided 6-pin power connector, which will give the card all the additional energy it needs. In addition the card is cooled by a single cooling fan.
It is unclear when the Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 Mini will be available and at what cost but in any case this is one exciting product.
