After the official presentation of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 now its time to see the custom graphics cards from different AIB partners of NVIDIA. After Gigabyte, this time we will see Inno3D, GALAX / KFA2 and Gainward GeForce GTX 1060 models. All these models share the use of Pascal GP106 silicon manufactured under a lithograph of 16nm consists of 1280 CUDA Cores, 80 TMUs and 48 ROPs accompanied by 6GB of GDDR5 memory. Each model will have a different frequency, recalling that the reference model frequencies are 1506/1709 MHz (Base / Turbo).

Inno3D iChill GTX 1060 GAMING OC X2
Inno3D iChill GTX 1060 GAMING OC X2 is using custom PCB, reach Turbo frequencies of 1784 MHz (+76 MHz respect to the reference model) while the memory reaches 8,200 MHz (+200 MHz). The graphics card will be powered by one PCI-Express 6 – pin connector.
Gainward GeForce GTX 1060 Founders Edition
A rather simple model, a 100% reference design: no Overclocked frequencies or improved heatsink or any other changes. This model will be theoretically cost around $299.
Gainward GeForce GTX 1060 Gale and GeForce GTX 1060 Herd
Gainward GeForce GTX 1060 Gale and GeForce GTX 1060 Herd both graphics cards are using a custom PCB with 4 + 1 VRM phase power (3 + 1 in reference model). Both have an improved cooling system with a base / turbo frequency of 1544/1759 and 1519/1734 MHz. Both maintain the PCI-Express 6 – pin connector for power.
GALAX GeForce GTX 1060 General
GALAX GeForce GTX 1060 General is using reference PCB, but with an increment of 50 MHz in turbo boost speed (1759 MHz). The graphics card is also using an advanced cooling system that will help to lower down the temperatures.
GALAX GeForce GTX 1060
Same specifications as above, unless the cooling system. This model maintains the reference frequencies.
GALAX GeForce GTX 1060 GAMER and Galax GeForce GTX 1060 Ashes General
Both custom models incorporate two 6 + 6 pin PCI-Express connectors promising high doses of Overclocking. Nevertheless, both reach a factory frequency of 1171 MHz (+62 MHz) with a memeory frequency @8.00 GHz.
