On the heels of the GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070 releases, Nvidia drops the GTX 1060. The GTX 1060 is marketed as a mainstream card and the reference card is targeting the $250 range while partner boards tend to be slightly higher. For this review we present the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 AMP! Edition graphics card. The Zotac GeForce 1060 features their Icestorm cooler that uses 90mm fans to keep the 1060 temperatures under control. The new GPU also contains 6 GB of GDDR5 RAM vs the 4 GB of RAM we are used to seeing on past mainstream cards.
The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 AMP! Edition Graphics Card comes packaged in a brightly colored yellow and grey box. The front of the box doesn’t have much art work but the rear of the box does and goes into more detail on the card’s features and specifications.
There isn’t much besides the graphics card included, in the box and honestly there doesn’t need to be. Inside the box there is a user manual and a dual molex to 6-pin power cable for those consumers that may not have a 6-pin on their power supply.
