ASUS Intros GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Phoenix Graphics Card

ASUS today introduced its GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB Phoenix graphics card, based on the same cost-effective design as the GTX 1060 3 GB Phoenix it launched last year. The card features a compact 18.3-inch long custom-design PCB, mated to a simple aluminium fan-heatsink, with spirally-projecting heatsink fins, ventilated by an 80 mm double ball-bearing fan. The card comes with NVIDIA-reference speeds of 1506 MHz core, 1708 MHz GPU Boost, and 8.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory.

Based on the 16 nm GP106 silicon, the GTX 1060 features 1,280 CUDA cores, 80 TMUs, 48 ROPs, and a 192-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 6 GB of memory. The card draws power from a single 6-pin PCIe power connector. Outputs include dual-link DVI, two HDMI 2.0b, and one DisplayPort 1.4 connector. In the wake of the crypto-plague, its price is constantly changing.

Yay I got one of these but in 3GB flavour. It's actually a surprisingly good little cooler, keeps the GPU below 70C and is quiet.

The inches are compact ;)

This looks very much like my own EVGA 1060 SC (or something). Mine is factory overclocked, but doesn't sport a custom PCB. Still, it sits just below 2GHz most of the time.
So nice, but it's just another "me too".

Edit: Those inches are really centimeters. Also, there's this already: http://www.gainward.com/main/vgapro.php?id=988&lang=en (i.e. also Phoenix)
