It was back in August that Nvidia first unveiled the GTX 1060 3GB, although today is the first time we're looking at one. The nomenclature is cheeky on Nvidia's part, breaking the norm of naming GPUs based on the number of cores they have. The GTX 1060 3GB is not just a standard GTX 1060 GPU running with half the memory, as Nvidia also disables one Streaming Multiprocessor (SM), reducing the count of cores and texture units. What this does enable Nvidia to do is offer it for a fair amount less than the 6GB parts, with a £180 starting price compared to £240.

Since this is our first GTX 1060 3GB review, we'll briefly run down the GPU specifications. It uses the same 200mm2GP106 GPU as the GTX 1060, built on a 16nm process and sporting 4.4 billion transistors. However, it is not fully enabled this time around, with the SM count dropping from 10 to nine, giving us 1,152 cores and 72 texture units. As the name gives away, the GDDR5 has been halved to 3GB.

Otherwise, it's the same: 1.5MB of L2 cache, with each 256KB segment of it tied to a 32-bit memory controller and 8 ROPs. There's no true reference design, but Nvidia's reference clock speeds are the same: 1,506MHz base (1,708MHz boost) for the GPU and 2GHz (8Gbps effective) for the memory, giving us 192GB/sec of maximum memory bandwidth. It also lists a single 6-pin PCI-E connector, which is plenty given that the card has the same 120W TDP as the GTX 1060 6GB.

Gigabyte is just one of Nvidia's many board partners, of course, but it has a number of GTX 1060 3GB cards to its name. The one we have in, the WindForce OC, appears to have a decent value proposition. It sports a custom cooler and a factory overclock yet comes in at £200, just £20 more than the least expensive models around. This sort of pricing puts it above most RX 470 4GB cards and in line with some of the less expensive RX 480 4GB cards. As well as having 1GB more memory, both of these AMD cards have more memory bandwidth. There are, of course, more things that contribute to performance than these metrics, but they are potential limiting factors when playing at high resolutions or with ultra settings – only benchmarks will be able to reveal potential bottlenecks.

The core of the GTX 1060 WindForce OC is set to 1,556MHz out of the box, but this is easily increased to 1,582MHz by setting the card to OC Mode in Gigabyte's Xtreme Engine software. This is the speed we've tested at, and it gives us a boost clock of 1,797MHz and represents a 5 percent increase over the reference base clock. The memory, sadly, has been left alone and runs at the standard 8Gbps.

Gigabyte does produce a mini-ITX version of the GTX 1060, but even this dual-fan model is hardly massive. Dual-slot, 223mm long and 121mm tall, it will be an easy fit for the vast majority of cases. The open cooler shroud is plastic and painted black with some orange highlights, and the card has a metal backplate that keeps it feeling very rigid and improves the looks. One feature we've become accustomed to in recent GPU reviews is LED lighting (especially RGB), but you'll need to step up to Gigabyte's G1 Gaming card before you see that.

You get two dual-link DVI-D connectors; one more than the reference specifications dictate. Otherwise, it's business as usual with one HDMI 2.0 connector and one DisplayPort 1.4 header.

Power is delivered through a single 6-pin connector. This gives the card a total maximum power of 150W, which is significantly more than the 120W TDP and shouldn't be a limit when overclocking – upgrading to an 8-pin header would only really have been for the sake of it.

The WindForce 2X cooler relies on a couple of 90mm fans to drive airflow across the heatsink. The fans have 11 blades, each with a design unique to Gigabyte with a triangle tip on the front edge that splits the airflow across the channels on the top of the blades. The result, supposedly, is an increase in airflow of 23 percent over standard blades. The open shroud and the direction of the fins mean that airflow will mostly be recycled in your chassis. The fans spin in opposite directions, which Gigabyte says 'optimises' airflow and reduces air turbulence. They're also capable of semi-passive operation and won't spin at all once the GPU is cool enough.

The GPU is cooled by a single, direct contact, pure copper heat pipe that twists back into the aluminium fins. The memory chips are also cooled by the heatsink via thermal padding, and even the MOSFETs are directly cooled by their own miniature heatsink – it's good to see such a complete cooling solution.

Gigabyte deploys a 4+1 phase power system for this card, which is a small improvement on the GTX 1060 Founders Edition that uses a 3+1 design. This, it claims, keeps the MOSFETs at a lower temperature and delivers more stable voltage – both of which are potentially useful for overclocking and product longevity. The company also uses its Ultra Durable components, including high-grade chokes and capacitors.

General info

The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.

Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.

Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) is a high-speed interface standard for connecting components, such as graphics cards and SSDs, to a motherboard. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.

5.Is dual-GPU

The memory clock speed is one aspect that determines the memory bandwidth.

The number of textured pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.

Shading units (or stream processors) are small processors within the graphics card that are responsible for processing different aspects of the image.

TMUs take textures and map them to the geometry of a 3D scene. More TMUs will typically mean that texture information is processed faster.

When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.

The ROPs are responsible for some of the final steps of the rendering process, writing the final pixel data to memory and carrying out other tasks such as anti-aliasing to improve the look of graphics.

Memory

The effective memory clock speed is calculated from the size and data rate of the memory. Higher clock speeds can give increased performance in games and other apps.

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.

A wider bus width means that it can carry more data per cycle. It is an important factor of memory performance, and therefore the general performance of the graphics card.

Newer versions of GDDR memory offer improvements such as higher transfer rates that give increased performance.

Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 Overclocking Guide - Xtreme Engine Utility

Gigabyte Drops Three New GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5X Graphics Cards

Despite the fact that Turing is already out, Gigabyte is continuing to expand its mid-range Pascal offerings with the addition of three new graphics cards based around Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5X SKU. The newly-baked trio of graphics cards hails from Gigabyte's G1 Gaming product line and comes with a substantial factory overclock out of the box.

The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 G1 Gaming D5X 6G (GV-N1060G1 GAMING-6GD 3.0) is the fastest of the three announced graphics cards. This model comes with a 1620MHz base clock and 1847MHz boost clock when it's functioning in OC mode.

The graphics card features a dual-slot design and measures 280mm long. It's equipped with Gigabyte's WindForce 3X cooler that consists of three pure copper composite heatpipes, a heatsink with a special fin design, a metallic backplate and three semi-passive cooling fans. 

The GeForce GTX 1060 G1 Gaming D5X 6G is powered by a 8-pin PCIe power connector. The graphics card's display outputs include one dual-link DVI-D port, one HDMI 2.0b port and three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs.

The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 WindForce OC D5X 6G (GV-N1060WF3OC-6GD) is a splitting image of its G1 sibling in terms of design. The only difference, and pretty big one, is the clock speed. When operating in OC mode, the GeForce GTX 1060 WindForce OC D5X 6G has a 1582MHz base clock and a 1797MHz boost clock.


Gigabyte also offers the GeForce GTX 1060 WindForce 2X OC D5X 6G (GV-N1060WF2OC-6GD 2.0) for consumers that are looking for a more compact graphics card for PC builds with very limited clearance space. The GeForce GTX 1060 WindForce 2X OC D5X 6G possesses a dual-slot design, but measures 224mm long thanks to the shorter WindForce 2X cooler.

The WindForce 2X cooler retains many of the 3X cooler's characteristics, such as the copper composite heatpipes and the heatsink with a special fin design, but replaces the three cooling fans with two 90mm fans instead. As far as performance goes, the GTX 1060 WindForce 2X OC D5X 6G runs at 1582MHz with a boost clock that hits 1797MHz and, therefore, should perform on par with the GeForce GTX 1060 WindForce OC D5X 6G.

Gigabyte didnt't reveal pricing or availability for the graphics cards.
