Two Mini-ITX Form Factor EVGA GTX 1060 Cards Pictured, One is Factory Overclocked
EVGA is working on two Mini-ITX form factor cards based on Nvidia’s Pascal GP106 chip. These GTX 1060 GPUs, expected to launch on 19th July, will have a smaller size compared to regular ones and as such can be used in CPU casings where there is not enough room to install a longer GPU because of HDD cage or some other hurdle.
Some leaked images of the two EVGA GTX 1060 cards have surfaced and as expected, one of them is Superclocked which will be factory overclocked and will have a higher speed than the regular EVGA GTX 1060. There is no word on what the exact clock speeds will be for both these GPUs. Both of the cards will feature a 6 pin power connector as they are built on the reference design from Nvidia.
The GTX 1060 will be available in 238 countries starting on July 19th. Custom cards built by Nvidia’s partners such as EVGA and MSI will start from a very lucrative $249 price tag. There is no word on the pricing of these Mini ITX cards from EVGA.
The 1060 will feature a 192-bit memory bus, 1280 CUDA cores, 6GB of GDDR5 memory and a base clock of 1506MHz. It is built using 16nm FinFET process on Nvidia’s GP106 chip.
Following the rumors and indications from some of Nvidia’s partners, it remains to be seen whether EVGA will be producing Mini-ITX based GTX 1060 GPUs with 3GB or whether they will only stick with the 6GB version, which on the paper seems to be only slightly better than the 3GB one.
Of course, EVGA will also be producing ATX sized models of GTX 1060 so for those without a compact PC or Mini ITX form factor motherboard aren’t the only ones who can get their hands on the GPU.
