ASUS introduced the GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB Phoenix graphics card. Designed with low cost in mind, this card is 18.3 cm long, and combines a custom-design PCB that draws power from a single 6-pin PCIe power connector, with a simple monolithic aluminium fan-heatsink cooler. The heatsink features a copper core, which dissipates heat to an aluminium block with spirally projecting fins; which is ventilated by a single 80 mm dual ball bearing fan. The GPU is clocked at NVIDIA reference speeds of 1506 MHz core, 1708 MHz GPU Boost, and 8.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. As the 3 GB variant of the GTX 1060, the chip features just 1,152 CUDA cores. Display outputs include two each of DisplayPort and HDMI connectors, and a DVI port. ASUS didn't reveal pricing.
