What customers say about "Key Specs"
Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Graphics Card
  • Excellent Graphics card. Nice, Simply and fast!
  • Graphics loads with those games I do have are handled far better, even at the highest quality on a 2560x1600 display.
  • I simply lower the fan speed to around 45% with the firestorm software that comes with the gpu to clear the noise & that is under normal load & then put it on auto when on a heavy load.
  • Bought this so Son could play games such as Fortnight and Scrap Mechanic on an older PC - just what he needed.
  • I doesn't take up much system memory and the quality of the output is great. In my opinion its far better than OBS.

  • Brilliant card upgrade 1050ti 4 GIG VRAM from my GTX460 which was a great RUNNER. I wanted to play more modern games and this card does the trick and does not hold you back.
  • Pleasantly surprised by this card. While it copes well with all games (as you would expect) I was worried about the reduction of Cuda cores for Iray rendering. this card has less cores than my old 760gtx.
  • Not much to say here other than the excellent quality of the card and that packaging was great and thus far, the card has performed as expected which is brilliant for me, a gamer.
  • Excellent performance. Expensive and fan becomes annoyingly loud once it hits 40%+ speed resulting in having to underclock card to keep temp ok and fan quiet enough to enjoy using.
  • Does the job. Needed a digital output for my new monitor. Not playing games on it so speed was not the need here.

What customers say about "Features"
Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Graphics Card
  • It also features support for VR, only requires one 6 pin PCI for power, has a base clock of 1556MHz which does boost to 1771MHz, a memory clock of 8000MHz, 1280 CUDA cores and 192 bit memory bus.
  • Size wise it's one of the smallest non mini 1060s. Fits in my not overly large case fine.
  • A great GPU especially considering the lower price, the only trouble I have found was the considerable amount of noise and heat this generates, probably due to the size and fact that it has only got a single fan.
  • It is silent, perfect size for medium and full ATX pc cases, it has some old-school fat copper cooling tubes
  • The fan is not running much due to good cooling system (hence less wear and tear)

  • My card now supports many features that my 580 did not, and many faults that I had with my pc (which I hadn't been able to Identify the cause of) simply disappeared when I switched this card in
  • Fan stop LED is a nice feature and the LED gigabyte logo can be configured using the gigabyte utility.
  • The LED control was also a nice feature and I did not have to restart my PC for the changes to take effect as others have reported although i'm sure this is due to the software updates themselves.
  • This card runs very cool and the fans are pretty quiet even under load, and I can only assume it uses less power.
  • Good card, only requires 8pin adapter for your power and easy overclocking features if you wish.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Graphics Card
  • Plugged into the PCIE 2.0 bus and drivers loaded up with no issues.
  • It needs a 6pin power connection and the card fits into a Mini ATX case with ease, it's also worth noting that you only get the card in the box (no cables or adaptors so make sure you have what you need)
  • Has a handy little interface called Firestorm for basic tweaking, if you like that.
  • Features wise its a dual slot card and has 3 x HDMI 2.0, 1 x Display port 1.4 and 1 x DVI, so plenty of ports for a multi monitor set up, which this is more than capable of doing.

  • This was an upgrade for my PC after a failed monitor 'on/off' button an a replacement monitor. I thought I'd go down the HDMI connection method
  • Excellent card. Really impressed. Easy to fit with controllable software and many connections for monitors.
  • Beast of a card, quiet fans. Only needs an 8 pin connection too which is great.
  • One thing to note - requires a 6 pin power connection (don't think this info was available on Amazon and I had to go looking for it)
  • On the description says that include VGA/DVI/Pwr Ada, but I think this is a mistake and is trying to make reference to the available connections on the card.
