Gigabyte tops off its GTX 1060 series with the Xtreme Gaming 6G

When Gigabyte launched its GeForce GTX 1060 line, the fastest model on offer at the time was the GTX 1060 G1 Gaming. We had a hunch the company wasn't done yet, though, and today, Gigabyte quietly updated its website with a product page for the GTX 1060 Xtreme Gaming

The new card uses a generous dose of copper in its heatsink and a pair of 100-mm, contra-rotating fans. That combo should keep the card cool even as it hangs out around its boost clock of 1873 MHz. In addition to the pumped-up boost clock, the GTX 1060 Xtreme Gaming also gets a significant overclock to its memory, up to 8.3 GT/sec in OC mode. As you might expect from such a hot-clocked piece of hardware, the card does require an 8-pin power connector. 

As a unique feature within the 1060 line-up, Gigabyte mounts two front-facing HDMI ports to the Xtreme Gaming card that are enabled in a "VR mode." The GTX 1060 Xtreme Gaming also supports Gigabyte's VR-Link front-panel HDMI accessory, although that convenient extra isn't included in the box. In standard mode, users can instead take advantage of a dual-link DVI port. In either case, the card has three DisplayPort 1.4 jacks, plus a rear-facing HDMI 2.0b port.

Visually, the card resembles other products in the Xtreme Gaming 10-series family. Those products usually include a black-and-silver shroud that frames the RGB LED-illuminated cross-brace in the center of the cooler. A thick metal backplate and a large RGB LED-backlit Xtreme Gaming logo wrap around the rest of the card. Gigabyte backs up its claims of durability with a four-year warranty on the GTX 1060 Xtreme Gaming.
