We just talked to you yesterday that NVIDIA would be preparing a new GTX 1060 for cybercafés. That comes with 5GB of GDDR5 memory and a bus cut to 160 bit. And today we are talking about Gigabyte as the first manufacturer to present its first model based on this new configuration. It is Gigabyte today who presented a new Gigabyte GTX 1060 Windforce OC 5GB. That reproduces exactly the commercialized model of 6GB in physical appearance.
Gigabyte introduces the first GTX 1060 Windforce OC 5GB
This model comes with a Windforce X2 heatsink with two 90mm fans and two frequency modes. Also, the first mode arrives with base frequencies and the boost of 1556/1771 Mhz. Also, the second mode OC still goes further with frequencies 1592/1797 Mhz. The 5GB of GDDR5 memory remains at 8Ghz.
This new model has a length of 22.3cm and occupies two slots. That comes with a power supply for a single connector of 6pin PCI-E like the rest of the models in the range. NVIDIA has proposed these models for Asian cybercafe, as a cheaper option than 6GB cards, so I do not think we will see them in Europe unless the company decides to extract them from this market to offer an intermediate price product. the rest of the world.
