MSI announces a full line of custom GeForce GTX 1060 Graphics Cards

MSI introduced brand new graphics cards based on NVIDIA’s new Pascal GPU with fierce new looks and supreme performance to match. Featuring the same high build quality as its bigger brothers, the MSI GeForce® GTX 1060 GAMING X 6G is kept cool by the impressive TWIN FROZR VI thermal design allowing for higher core and memory clock speeds for increased performance in games. The famous shapes of the eye-catching TWIN FROZR cooler are intensified by a fiery red GAMING glow piercing through the cover, while the MSI GAMING dragon RGB LED on the side can be set to any of 16.8 million colors to match your mood or build. A completely new custom 6-phase PCB design using Military Class 4 components with an 8-pin power connector enables higher overclocking performance to push your graphics card to the max. The classy matte black solid metal backplate gives the card more structural strength and provides a nice finishing touch.


MSI’s new TWIN FROZR VI Thermal Design raises the bar of Graphics Card air cooling. TORX Fan 2.0 is the enhanced version of the patented MSI TORX Fan technology which generates 22% more air pressure for better cooling performance while further reducing noise levels. Connected to the huge heatsink are up to 8mm thick copper heat pipes with a squared shape at the bottom for optimal heat transfer from the solid nickel-plated copper baseplate combined with premium thermal compound X to keep the Pascal powerhouse cool.

Both models are crafted using Military Class 4 components, have single 6-pin power connectors and are covered with a classy Black & White design using 8cm fans.
