MSI GTX 1060 Overview
With a slightly overclocked core and based on NVIDIA's Pascal architecture, the MSI GeForce GTX 1060 6GT OC Graphics Card provides major improvements in performance, memory bandwidth, and power efficiency over its predecessor, the high-performance Maxwell architecture. It also introduces innovative graphics features and technologies that redefine the computer as the platform for playing AAA games and taking full advantage of virtual reality via NVIDIA VRWorks.
The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs. There is a DisplayPort 1.4 output, an HDMI 2.0b output, and a DVI-D Dual-Link output. The GTX 1060 is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU's 1280 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA or other APIs.
For cooling, MSI implemented a dual fan cooler. The dual fans cover more of the heatsink to take away heat more efficiently.
