GeForce GTX 1060 3QtrTopLeft
If you’ve already read Marco’s excellent analysis of the GeForce GTX 1060, then you know that NVIDIA has produced a compelling graphics card for the mainstream market that offers respectable performance and extremely low power consumption (and if you haven’t read the review, you can find it here). And following the official reveal of a new GeForce card came a flurry of announcements from NVIDIA’s graphics partners; all of which are looking corner the market with multiple variants catering to the widest pool of gamers.

So far, we’ve seen numerous entries from ASUS, MSI, EVGA and Gigabyte (among others). So to make things a bit easier to follow, we’ve compiled a list of some of the cards coming out from the top graphics card manufacturers. ASUS has come to the table with five GTX 1060 cards for consumers:

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 G1 Gaming 6G

Gigabyte has graced us with four GTX 1060 cards, only two of which it’s willing to divulge full specs for at this time. The range-topping model is the GeForce GTX 1060 G1 Gaming 6G that features the WINDFORCE 2X cooler, customizable RGB lighting and tops out at 1847MHz in OC Mode. The other card of note from Gigabyte is the GeForce GTX 1060 Mini ITX OC, which features a single-fan design, and measures just 6.7 inches in length making it ideal for compact cases.

When it comes to pricing, these cards are all over the map, and if you can find one in stock, price gouging is likely to be an issue. So tread lightly as you venture off into GeForce GTX 1060 land...
