ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 Mini Pictured, First Mini-ITX Model from the Company
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 Mini has leaked out, showing a compact custom PCB that should be perfect for the mini-ITX form factors.
We know that the GeForce GTX 1060 comes with a smaller PCB as compared to the high-end GTX 1080 and GTX 1070, and ZOTAC is utilizing this to its own advantage. Unlike the reference card which will be available in only 6GB variant, ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 Mini is set to arrive in both 3GB and 6GB models, both of which will feature reference GPU clock speeds: 1506 MHz base and 1708 MHz boost clocks.
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 Mini will be sporting the company’s very own slick-looking custom PCB, but it won’t have an over-the-top cooler on board. Speaking of the cooling system, it’s worth mentioning that the GTX 1060’s reference PCB itself is not suitable for aftermarket coolers and water blocks.
It features the 6 Pin extension which leaves you either without a usable power connection, or with an extension cable hanging off the end of a watercooled GPU.
Built using the 16nm FinFET Pascal architecture, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 uses the GP106 GPU featuring 1280 CUDA cores, 80 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The card has the highest boost clock speed of 1.7 GHz which is easily overclocked to 2 GHz. It features a 192-bit bus memory interface, and delivers a total bandwidth of 192 GB/s.
The TDP is rated at just 120W, with card having three Display Port 1.4, single HDMI 2.0b and also a single DVI port.
Nvidia is set to launch the graphics card next week at a price point of $249 for the custom models. As for the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 Mini, pricing or availability details are not revealed yet.
