NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 1060 5GB variant was exposed in the last 24 hours, with the new 5GB variant of the GTX 1060 destined for the Chinese internet cafe market. But now, we have a quick look at GIGABYTE's model in the GTX 1060 5GB WindForce OC.




GIGABYTE has confirmed that their new card will have GPU clocks of 1582/1797MHz in OC mode, while Gaming Mode will have the GPU clocked at 1556/1771MHz. The 5GB of GDDR5 will be clocked at 8008MHz on the same 160-bit memory bus that will provide 160GB/sec of memory bandwidth down from the 192GB/sec of memory bandwidth on the 6GB model with its 192-bit memory bus.




GIGABYTE will use their dual-fan WindForce 2X cooling solution that rocks a full cover backplate, while display wise we have 2 x DVI, 1 x HDMI and 1 x DP output.
