Asus is expanding its ROG Strix lineup of graphics cards with the Strix GeForce GTX 1060 OC edition 6GB, the company's most recent take on a GTX 1060 6GB card. The new entry is fitted with what the company calls its Classic DirectCU II cooler. The visually obvious differences between the new DirectCU II Strix 1060 OC and the two existing DirectCU III models are the dual-fan cooler and shorter PCB. The card offers 1569MHz base and 1785MHz boost clocks, slotting it between the existing three-fan models.
The new Strix OC loses its older brothers' RGB LEDs and some of their bulk, along with the previously-mentioned third fan. The new card has a single six-pin PCIe power connector and measures 8.6" x 4.9" x 1.7" (21.8cm x 12.5cm x 4.2cm) compared to the bigger cards' dimensions of 11.7" x 5.28" x 1.57" (29.8cm x 13.4cm x 4.0cm). The port cluster on the Strix OC contains the same two HDMI ports, a pair or DisplayPorts, and a solitary dual-link DVI-D port for users holding onto old monitors.
Asus did not release pricing or availability for the new card. Given the newer card's characteristics, though, we expect it to go for slightly less than the existing DirectCU III OC model.
