NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB GDDR5X Photo NVIDIA GP104 Photo
The GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB GDDR5X is a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in November 2018. Built on the 16 nm process, and based on the GP104 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The GP104 graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 314 mm² and 7,200 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked GeForce GTX 1080, which uses the same GPU but has all 2560 shaders enabled, NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB GDDR5X to reach the product's target shader count. It features 1280 shading units, 80 texture mapping units and 48 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 6,144 MB GDDR5X memory on the card, which are connected using a 192-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 1506 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1709 MHz, memory is running at 1001 MHz.
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB GDDR5X draws power from 1x 6-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 120 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x HDMI, 3x DisplayPort. GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB GDDR5X is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 250 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution.
