NVIDIA silently launched its refreshed GeForce GTX 1060 with GDDR5X memory not too long ago now, and now Palit has become the second AIB partner to unveil a GDDR5X-based GTX 1060.

Palit's new GeForce GTX 1060 GamingPro OC+ graphics card, with its 6GB of GDDR5X clocked at 8.8Gbps, which is 800MHz more than the GDDR5-based GTX 1060, and 200MHz slower than the GTX 1060 with GDDR5 at 9Gbps (there was at least one model like this, but it wasn't super popular).

The GPU itself is slightly overclocked, with 1531/1746MHz for base and boost GPU clocks, respectively. All you'll need is a single 6-pin PCIe power connector for the Palit GeForce GTX 1060 GamingPro OC+ graphics card, but we don't have a price or ETA as of yet.
