Yesterday I promised to post first pictures of the new GTX 1060 SKU, so here they are.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 5GB Windforce OC

This model has the identical design to GTX 1060 6GB Windforce OC. It’s basically the same card with the smaller frame buffer and shorter bus width.

Gigabyte has confirmed that the clock speeds for this card as 1582/1797 MHz in OC mode and 1556/1771 MHz in Gaming mode, so yes, exactly the same as 1060 6GB variant.

The memory clock speed is also confirmed at 8008 MHz, which in combination with 160-bit bus width gives us 160 GB/s bandwidth, 32 GB/s less than 192b/6GB variant

The card features dual-fan Windforce 2X cooling solution. It also comes with a full cover backplate.

The GTX 1060 5GB Windforce OC has four display outputs: two DVIs, HDMI, and a DisplayPort.
