ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Strix Graphics Card Review – Techgage

We discovered this past summer that NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1060 is quite an effective card at its suggested price of ~$249 (6GB model), delivering superb 1080p performance, and solid 1440p performance. As impressive as it was, though, there’s always a little room for improvement, right? ASUS thinks so, and it has its Strix edition to help prove it.

Whereas the reference Founders Edition of the GTX 1060 features a leaf-blower style fan under a closed metal shroud, ASUS offers a beefed-up fin array with its Strix and tops the open shroud with three fans. That makes the Strix edition bulkier overall versus the Founders Edition, but as we’ll see later, the trade-off of space is worth it.

The GTX 1060 Strix supports a couple of predefined modes, with the shipping one being “Gaming”. In that mode, the card supports a GPU Boost clock of 1847MHz. When the GPU TweakII software is installed, “OC Mode” can be used instead, to increase the clock further, to 1873MHz. In the real-world, the top-end of each value will be even higher, something I’ll take a look at on the final page. The important thing to note is that the Strix edition is an overclocked GTX 1060, so out-of-the-gate, it’ll perform much better than a Founders Edition – as we’ll see soon.

Time for some hardware porn:

ASUS equips the GTX 1060 Strix with a DVI-D port, dual HDMI ports, and dual DisplayPorts. While NVIDIA’s design sports a 6-pin power connector, ASUS includes an 8-pin for the sake of possibly improved stability and improved overclocking potential.

As seen in one of the shots above, Strix also includes a backplate, and unlike most, it actually adds to the style of the card. Overall, the entire card is great-looking; it’s not flashy, and would look good in any build. OK – perhaps “not flashy” is incorrect phrasing, as under the shroud, a customizable LED can be found. With downloadable software called Aura, you can change the LED mode and color – great for those wanting to add a bit of pizzazz to their build. Don’t want color? You can turn the LED feature off entirely.

If you’re indifferent to the color of the LED, but use a windowed PC so that you can see the card, you can also use a feature that adjusts the card’s color based on temperature: green for modest temperatures, and yellow/red for peaked temperatures.

NVIDIA GeForce Series Cores Core MHz Memory Mem MHz Mem Bus TDP
TITAN X 3584 1417 12288MB 10000 384-bit 250W
GeForce GTX 1080 2560 1607 8192MB 10000 256-bit 180W
GeForce GTX 1070 1920 1506 8192MB 8000 256-bit 150W
GeForce GTX 1060 1280 ≤1700 6144MB 8000 192-bit 120W

As seen in the table above, the GTX 1060 sits at the bottom of NVIDIA’s current line-up, although that’s not a bad thing considering it’s still a midrange card (the GTX 1050 is rumored to make an appearance soon). So what’s that mean in performance terms? In our opinion:

NVIDIA GeForce Series 1080p 1440p 3440×1440 4K
TITAN X Overkill Overkill Excellent Great
GeForce GTX 1080 Overkill Excellent Excellent Good
GeForce GTX 1070 Excellent Great Good Poor
GeForce GTX 1060 Great Good Poor Poor

As a “Great” 1080p card, the GTX 1060 will hit 60 FPS pretty effortlessly in most of today’s games, although it might not be common to be able to top-out a game’s graphics settings at that resolution with future titles. “Good” for 1440p means that compromises will have to be made in most of today’s current games in order to hit 60 FPS.

What that means for the Strix is that those values would be even more emphasized. It’d take a lot more than a clock boost to upgrade any of these values, though.

Testing Notes

When we need to build a test PC for performance testing, “no bottleneck” is the name of the game. While we admit that few of our readers are going to be equipped with an Intel 8-core processor clocked to 4GHz, we opt for such a build to make sure our GPU testing is as apples-to-apples as possible, with as little variation as possible. Ultimately, the only thing that matters here is the performance of the GPUs, so the more we can rule out a bottleneck, the better.

That all said, our test PC:

Framerate information for all tests – with the exception of certain time demos and DirectX 12 tests – are recorded with the help of Fraps. For tests where Fraps use is not ideal, I use the game’s built-in test (the only option for DX12 titles right now). In the past, I’ve tweaked the Windows OS as much as possible to rule out test variations, but over time, such optimizations have proven fruitless. As a result, the Windows 10 installation I use is about as stock as possible, with minor modifications to suit personal preferences.

In all, I use 8 different games for regular game testing, and 3 for DirectX 12 testing. That’s in addition to the use of three synthetic benchmarks. Because some games are sponsored, the list below helps oust potential bias in our testing.

(AMD) – Ashes of the Singularity (DirectX 12)
(AMD) – Battlefield 4
(AMD) – Crysis 3
(AMD) – Hitman (DirectX 12)
(NVIDIA) – Metro: Last Light Redux
(NVIDIA) – Rise Of The Tomb Raider (incl. DirectX 12)
(NVIDIA) – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
(Neutral) – DOOM
(Neutral) – Grand Theft Auto V
(Neutral) – Total War: ATTILA

If you’re interested in benchmarking your own configuration to compare to our results, you can download this file (5MB) and make sure you’re using the exact same graphics settings. I’ll lightly explain how I benchmark each test before I get into each game’s performance results.

ASUS pays great attention to the diversity of its model range, in which the number of modifications of one graphics accelerator can in some cases approach ten. The very popular NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 video card was no exception. Last summer, we managed to get acquainted with its flagship modification — ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1060 GAMING OC, which pleased not only with the high quality of performance, efficient and quiet cooling system during everyday use, but also a fairly high level of factory overclocking. nine0003

This time we’ll look at a very similar version — ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1060 GAMING (ROG STRIX-GTX1060-6G-GAMING) , the price tag of which is slightly lower than that of the model mentioned above. Let’s see what is the difference between them and which of these video cards is more capable of interest to the user.

Packaging and contents

Both video cards use a similar package design, made of thick cardboard with high-quality printing. On its sides, the key advantages of these models are indicated. The only difference is the absence of the OC logo on the ASUS ROG STRIX-GTX1060-6G-GAMING packaging.

The list of system requirements for the computer where you plan to install the video accelerator is located on one side of the box. Based on the recommendations, the power supply must have a power of at least 500 W, provide a minimum of 42 A on the +12V line, and support one 8-pin PCIe power cable. nine0003

The package is also completely identical to that of the ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1060 GAMING OC and includes a quick start guide, a CD with drivers and utilities, and two cable ties with the ASUS ROG logo.

A modified set of interfaces is used to display an image on the tested adapter:

  • 1 x DVI-D;
  • 2 x HDMI;
  • 2 x DisplayPort.
  • nine0235

    Recall that the reference version uses only one HDMI port and three DisplayPort. In this case, ASUS decided to meet the needs of the owners of VR devices by providing them with two HDMI ports. Simultaneous monitor connection is limited to four video outputs with a maximum resolution of 7680 x 4320 at 60Hz.


    The ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1060 GAMING graphics adapter is identical to the ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1060 GAMING OC design in black, which will perfectly fit into the composition of any system due to its strict and stylish appearance. nine0003

    The logic of the location of the key components is quite familiar: all memory chips are soldered around the graphics core, and the power subsystem components are located on its right side. The power supply is made according to a reinforced seven-phase scheme, where six phases are responsible for powering the graphics core, and one is for the video memory subsystem. Recall that the reference video card operates on a four-phase scheme (3 + 1).

    As for the element base, it corresponds to the Super Alloy Power II proprietary concept and includes exclusively high-quality components: solid-state and tantalum-polymer capacitors, as well as ferrite core chokes. This improves the stability and reliability of the graphics adapter as a whole, and also extends its service life. nine0003

    In the tail section, you can see two 4-pin connectors for connecting system fans, the rotation speed of which will be controlled by the video card thanks to ASUS FanConnect technology. The fact is that during protracted gaming battles, the temperature of the GPU often exceeds that of the central one, so it is more logical to adjust the fan speed based on the readings of the GPU, and not the CPU.

    The tested video accelerator is powered by a PCI Express x16 slot and one 8-pin PCIe connector located on the side of the board. In turn, the reference version manages only one 6-pin connector. Note that the cooler makes it a bit difficult to disconnect the PCIe cable, but if you don’t have to constantly change components and disconnect the video card, then this is not essential for you. nine0003

    The reverse side of the PCB is protected by a backing plate, which increases the rigidity of the structure and helps to dissipate excess heat.

    The device is based on the NVIDIA GP106-400 graphics chip, which is manufactured using a 16-nm process technology. It consists of 1280 CUDA cores, 80 texture units and 48 raster units. Testing was carried out in the «Gaming» mode, in which the frequency of the graphics processor corresponds to the recommended 1506 MHz in the nominal mode and 1708 MHz, taking into account the work of NVIDIA GPU Boost technology. nine0003

    The video card is equipped with a 6 GB of memory GDDR5, typed using six chips Samsung K G Fe HC HC HC 25 HC 25 HC 25 HC 25 All of them are soldered on the front side of the board and have a reference effective clock frequency of 8008 MHz. Data exchange between the graphics core and memory is carried out through a 192-bit bus, which is capable of passing 192. 2 GB of information per second.

    Using the complete utility ASUS GPU Tweak II, the user can switch between several operating modes. For example, switching to the «OC» profile increases the nominal frequency from 1506 to 1531 MHz, and the dynamic frequency from 1708 to 1746 MHz. In turn, the parameters achieved during manual overclocking can be saved to a user profile for quick activation of overclocking in the future.

    For lovers of bright backlighting, ASUS ROG STRIX-GTX1060-6G-GAMING offers ASUS AURA proprietary technology with support for millions of different shades and six modes of operation. The most functional of them is the possibility of color indication of the GPU temperature. And if there are other components or peripherals with ASUS AURA illumination, their modes of operation can be synchronized with each other. nine0003

    Cooling system

    We did not disassemble the video card in order not to violate the warranty, but, apparently, the same cooler is installed as in the ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1060 GAMING OC. The graphics card itself occupies two expansion slots and has a total length of 298mm according to the official ASUS website (313mm measured in our test lab).

    The cooler consists of a fairly large two-section radiator, three axial fans with an impeller diameter of 88 mm and a plastic casing that covers the entire structure from above. Also, to evenly distribute heat over the entire area of ​​​​the radiator, five copper heat pipes with a diameter of 8 mm with direct contact with the surface of the GPU are used. nine0003

    As you can see, the heatpipes are covered with a layer of nickel, which is used to minimize the drop in efficiency due to copper oxidation.

    The contact between the heat pipes and the heatsink fins is improved with solder.

    In turn, the elements of the power subsystem are in direct contact with the main heatsink using a thermal pad, and a separate low-profile heatsink in the form of a plate is used to cool the video memory chips. nine0003

    With automatic fan speed control, in the maximum load mode, the graphics core heated up to 61°C, and the cooler worked at 45% (1632 rpm) of its maximum power. The noise was below average and absolutely comfortable for extended use. For comparison: the cooler of the ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1060 GAMING OC model in a similar mode cooled the graphics core to 71 ° C, but at the same time, the frequency of its GPU reached 1949 MHz.

    Note that the ASUS GPU Tweak II utility incorrectly displayed the core clock under load, which was not 570 MHz, but 1809 MHz.

    When running DOOM (2016) at 4K, the GPU temperature did not exceed 58°C. At the same time, the cooler operates at 43% (1566 rpm) of its maximum power, so the noise was quite comfortable.

    In the maximum fan speed mode (3647 rpm), the temperature of the GPU dropped to 46°C. The noise emitted at the same time exceeded the average level and went beyond the comfortable limits. Continuing our comparison, we note that the cooling system of the ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1060 GAMING OC model kept the temperature of the GPU at around 65 ° C, but its frequency was higher than that of the tested modification (1962 versus 1809 MHz).

    When there is no load, the GPU and memory frequencies are automatically reduced, which reduces their power consumption and heat dissipation. In this mode, the temperature of the GPU did not exceed 35°C, and the cooling system switched to a passive mode of operation. Note that the fans started only after reaching 57 ° C, so at times of inactivity, the video card will definitely not disturb you with excessive noise.

    According to the test results, the DirectCU III cooler proved to be extremely positive, providing a large power reserve and a low temperature of the graphics core even at maximum load. As for the noise, in everyday use you can hardly hear the video card against the background of other components. No extraneous sounds in the form of an annoying whistle of throttles were also noticed during testing.

    ASUS ROG STRIX-GTX1060-O6G-GAMING video card review. GTX 1060



    She came to us just now. Nevertheless, we can compare it in absentia with the models that we had earlier.

    As we have noted more than once, the entire family of NVIDIA video cards of the latest generation GTX 10XX based on the Pascal architecture turned out to be very successful, and the GTX 1060, on the basis of which the presented ASUS ROG STRIX-GTX1060-O6G-GAMING is built, is no exception. nine0003

    Reference specifications for latest generation NVIDIA graphics cards based on Pascal architecture

    Solutions based on the GTX 1060 belong to the mid-range graphics cards, they have a good balance of performance and cost. By the way, the level of performance they provide is quite high, and a year ago only top-end video cards could demonstrate such a level.

    In addition, the GTX 1060 is very economical. nine0003


    ASUS ROG series products are always known for their advanced features and specs, so it was clear even before ASUS ROG STRIX-O6GING10 was included this is an extraordinary product.

    The DirectCU III heatsink is simply riddled with numerous copper heatpipes. In addition to the GPU, heat is also removed from the elements of the power subsystem and memory chips. nine0003

    There are three cooling fans. This affected the dimensions. The device turned out to be quite large. By the way, for models based on the GTX 1060, such a solution can be called a rarity. The GTX 1060 is a fairly economical video card that can easily get by with two fans. But in this case, the manufacturer, apparently, decided to make some margin and emphasize the special status of the board.

    ASUS ROG STRIX-GTX1060-O6G-GAMING received an overall cooling system, which affected the length of the video card. But the width of the board will take no more than two expansion slots in the system

    Not surprisingly, ASUS ROG STRIX-GTX1060-O6G-GAMING can turn off the fans if the temperature drops below the set level. In this case — below 44 ° C. This happens under moderate load. The fans are turned back on when the GPU temperature rises to about 57 °C.

    ASUS ROG STRIX-GTX1060-O6G-GAMING monitoring in MSI Afterburner

    In our open bench conditions (the computer is not assembled in a case), the temperature in demanding games stabilized at around 56 ° C. This is just a great result, and the very temperature value is the lowest we have seen in models based on GTX 1060 before . True, at the same time, the fan speed, which we recorded in other models, was, as a rule, lower by a couple of hundred rpm. In this case, the expression speed of the fans was approximately 1400 rpm.

    We didn’t have any complaints about noise in loaded mode with ROG STRIX-GTX1060-O6G-GAMING. The video card is very quiet. nine0003

    ASUS ROG STRIX-GTX1060-O6G-GAMING video output kit

    External examination of the ROG STRIX-GTX1060-O6G-GAMING also revealed ASUS FanConnect connectors for connecting case fans. This makes it possible to control the speed of their rotation based on the temperature readings of the GPU, and not the CPU, as happens when the fans are connected to the motherboard.

    ASUS FanConnect Case Fan Connectors

    The back side of the board is covered with a plate. It performs a decorative role, and also protects against possible mechanical impacts when installing / dismantling a video card in the system

    The board itself is heavily modified compared to the reference one. As is usually the case with products of this class, the use of premium components and special production control are claimed. In terms of the number of power phases (6 + 1), ASUS ROG STRIX-GTX1060-O6G-GAMING surpasses all GTX 1060 models that we have tested before. nine0003

    One 8-pin connector is provided for auxiliary power. Next to the connector is a pair of information LEDs. When the power plug is connected, the red warning LED goes out and instead lights up white

    Proprietary GPU Tweak II software is quite advanced. It can replace the capabilities of such popular graphics applications as MSI Afterburner (monitoring the current parameters of frequencies, temperatures, etc.), GPU-Z (detailed information about the video card), and in addition has a whole set of proprietary features. nine0003

    On the main tab, you have the opportunity to select the graphics card profile between normal mode (Gaming), modes with slight overclocking (OC) and “quiet” (Silent). For more advanced users, it is possible to manually change frequencies, voltages, and fan profiles.

    ASUS ROG STRIX-GTX1060-O6G-GAMING features the highest operating frequencies we’ve ever seen on a based model GTX 1060. Not only the GPU is overclocked, but also the memory. Interestingly, by default, the GPU frequencies of the video card should correspond to the Gaming mode (1620/1847 (boost) MHz), but in our case, the board initially worked at 1645/1873 (boost) MHz, corresponding to the OC mode. However, the difference is not so great.

    ASUS ROG STRIX-GTX1060-O6G-GAMING specifications according to GPU-Z

    In games, we fixed the maximum GPU frequency at 2050 MHz (in modern NVIDIA video cards, the maximum GPU frequency may be higher than the boost frequency ). nine0003

    The memory frequency in the video card has been increased from the standard 8000 to 8200 MHz.

    By the way, ASUS ROG STRIX-GTX1060-O6G-GAMING has a twin relative ROG STRIX-GTX1060-6G-GAMING, the only difference of which is slightly lower used frequencies.

    The monotonous black casing may make the ASUS ROG STRIX-GTX1060-O6G-GAMING look boring, but when you turn it on, you will immediately notice that it is not. The inserts around the fans and the logo on the side panel are equipped with proprietary advanced Aura RGB lighting. You can choose the color of the glow and effects (breathing, strobing, cycling colors, etc.) to your taste. There is even the ability to automatically smoothly change the backlight color depending on the temperature of the GPU. nine0003

    Video Card Extreme control

    tests and performance

    ASUS ROG Strix-GTX1060-O6G-GAMING We compared with participants in our comparative GEFORCE GTX 1060 dessation (Innno3D GTX 1060 (INNNOM , MSI GEFORCE GTX 1060 ARMOR 3G OCV1, MSI GEFORCE GTX 1060 GAMING X 6G, Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 AMP!). Considering the highest frequencies of ASUS ROG STRIX-GTX1060-O6G-GAMING among these competitors, it is natural that it is turned out to be the fastest video card.

    As already mentioned, ASUS also distinguished itself by the lowest GPU temperature under load, but at the same time, in terms of power consumption, it was among the lagging behind.
