Product Showcase


The card is 9.5  inches in length which is roughly 25 cm so it should fit comfortably in pretty much any decent chassis. Above the  cooler and cooling design, MSI placed extra shielding heatsinks over the GDDR5 memory as well as a heatsink directly on top of the VRM area.


The GeForce GTX 1060 takes advantage of Pascal 16 nm FinFet architecture, and with 4.4 billion transistors, 1,280 shader/stream cores, and 6 GB (later in the year we do expect to see some value 3 GB models as well) of GDDR5, it’s a rather nice product and decent successor to the GeForce GTX 970 and competing with the AMD Radeon RX 480.


The GPU empowering the product is called the GP106 GPU, which is Pascal architecture based. It has a nice 1,280 CUDA Cores, while texture filtering is performed by 80 texture units. 


The reference cards have a 120 Watt TDP, 75 Watts is delivered though the PCIe slot, then 75 Watts through the single 6-pin PEG (PCI Express graphics) power connector. If you look at the top right you can see an actual single 6-pin connector), that's 75 Watts + 75 Watts = 150 Watts available.
