No clue, but for anyone doubting (now it may not have SLi that's a guess), but there will be an 256B/8GB version of this card, the PCB literally tells us that.

Looks a lot like the 660Ti, just with one less power phase and no power connectors. And no SLI connectors of course...
Similar price too for that matter...

And 660Ti looks like GTX 670/680/760.

Yeah no way are they going to make a 256-bit version of the 1060. Already covered by 1070 / 1080. RIP x60Ti models.

Really cheap, It feels REALLY CHEAP.

Those wires. What is seen cannot be unseen.

I give it 3 months and they release a 256 bit version with SLi and call it a 1060Ti

Also anyone curious about expected power consumption the pictures out kind of scream that it will be substantially lower than the 480



Notice how the RX480 is a 6 phase card and the pictures of the 1060 put it as a 3 phase card...
The RX 480 is overdesigned as the VRMs can supply 240w. AMD could have shipped with 4 phases and the card would work just as well.

My guess is that they didn't want the VRMs too get too hot so they spread the load over more phases.

Doesn't need to be 256bit to reach 8GB... but that would of course be a shame over 1080p not to have that bandwidth... not that this card is made for 1080p+ but..............

Yes I guess a GTX 1060 Ti with a full GP106 because we don't know yet if this GTx 1060 chip is a full or a cut down ( as of today ) if it is a cut down then may be with the Ti will have a full chip and a 256Bit 8GB with SLi @ 299 hopefully.

Well, this looks pretty low end, like a $150 Gpu. Doesn't even have a sli connector FFS, yep low-end.

This will make a superb HTPC card, and with apparent GTX 980 level performance it will pack a mighty punch too.
Oh for a single slot cooling solution for ANYTHING after the HD 7750 :banghead:

Well, The non-reference AIB coolers look like 300$ cards.

This is the Full chip. Remember GTX960 1024/128b was like 57% the size of GTX 980 2048/256b. And 1060 is 60% the size of 1080 and it even has 192 bits..

The 1060Ti was meant to be based on GP104-150 (if it exists) a cut down. But it could be next month or 2017/q1.

The rx480 has a bigger die. I highly suspect the 480 is a fully enabled polaris 10 chip, i wonder if it has more CUs or if it has 8jaguar cores included to be sold as a console apu.

What a fugly board! nVidia literally cut all cost possible. And I wouldn't be surprised when I see that junk board sold under the Fudder Edition hefty price tag. What a time to be alive :(

look, i know they is giving out free vram but are you seriously expecting a free cpu with it too? but then again... ill have mine with fries and a shake

and why cant this card be a single slot one too? dang it.
and those power connections, they could have at least included a couple of mounting poles...

When your 6PIN 150W TDP card design consumes over 160W, and makes a whole lot of hot mess, you'd be worried about its PCB.
This one is designed to use the same amount of power as a GTX 960, an efficient little card that always did well:

The RX 480 has more double precision units (FP64).

Looks like Nvidia has employed MacGyver when looking at that power connector..

Reminds me about my friend's Asus V9999 (GF 6800) AGP, it had its power connector rotated 90° from reference, so it prevented plugging the molex connector when using NV Silencer 5. Well, he soldered the connector to the other side on the card with wires which he cut from an old PSU. :rockout:

I still don't like them, but that's just how it's been for quite a while now. There is 1070 mini, I'm sure there will be evga 1060 mini also.

Why anyone should? I didn't complain about it with ref. GTX670/760/970 & AMD480, so I don't still see a reason to complain about it.

The MacGyvered power connector is the only stupid thing in this reference card IMO.

So. Cal.
Not that anyone in their right-mind would do anything more the plug and play with these. Still I'd hope that at least if you un-screw the fan cover the 6-pin can just be popped out of its' housing. So at least you wouldn't have to un-solder the wires, you would hope it would end up as a pig-tail with the 6-pin.

As to the over hanging fan... would you think of asking $300 for something that looks like this? Well like this without SLI.
