A Closer Look


Equipped with their own Windforce X3 cooler design, this is one of the larger GTX 1060’s on the market. Of course, that larger size means it has room for a much larger heat sink design and three powerful fans. Overall, this should mean a cooler and quieter card, but also means it should be able to maintain a higher overclock for longer.

Down the side, a small Aorus logo, as well as a “fan stop” logo. Both of these are RGB backlit, for added customisation.

A good array of display connectors here, with DVI, 3 x DP and 1 x HDMI.

One of the most interesting features, however, is that gorgeous backplate. It covers the full length of the card, giving it added strength and cooling. You can also see some exposed copper for the GPU cooling block.

Overall, this is a great looking card, but how does it perform? Let’s find out!

    While card looks on paper ‘real beast’ in 1060 category there is something called: stupid overkill.

    Give me a break. Triple fan cooling on a PCB which should be half as long and chip which you can keep very cool by single 120mm fan – which is well proven by multiple mini-1060 versions (I have one of those from EVGA myself). Looking at the photos that’s nearly 30cm long – ludicrous. I really was hoping that with increased power efficiency and less power hungry cards we will move away from humongous heatsinks. However with extremely efficient Pascal architecture we witness numerous 3-slot VGAs which is outright dumb. And now this: 30cm long 1060. Good card, but nothing special or ground breaking that same version of mini-1060 can’t do…

    Or is this Gigabyte shot at altcoin mining? Then go ahead. 😛

    P.S. e-Teknix

    For crying out loud stop spamming Face**** banners everywhere. Browsing becomes really annoying…
