ZOTAC Also Intros GeForce GTX 1060 6GB AMP+ with 9 Gbps GDDR5 Memory

In addition to the GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme 11 Gbps, ZOTAC introduced the GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB AMP+ graphics card with faster 9 Gbps GDDR5 memory (model: ZT-P10600G-10M). The card comes with factory-overclocked speeds of 1607 MHz core, 1835 MHz GPU Boost, and 9.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory, which now churns out 216 GB/s of memory bandwidth; against NVIDIA-reference clock speeds of 1506/1709/8008 MHz. The card features a short-length custom-design PCB that draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, and keeps cool with a compact rendition of ZOTAC's IceStorm cooling solution, featuring two 90 mm fans, and a dense aluminium fin-stack heatsink. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Still don't understand this 9-11GB thing. Modern GDDR5 goes 10GB/s easy with a little tweak. I once read (and actually heard on Asus or something pod) hot climates invalidate turning your graphics card "up" so the manufactures are careful with what they preset. Anyway, as we all know, bandwidth is fabulous.

Using faster vram chips basically.

These are not just GTX 1060 and 1080 GPUs with their memory overclocked. The memory modules are flat out faster. Guru3d hit 12.7 Ghz on their review - something the og model would not be able to do. It helps performance at higher resolution.

In a way, this is actually more of a new model than what the RX-580 is.
