In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 6GB are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 6GB.

The GTX 1060 has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 1060. This results in the GTX 1060 providing 2 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1060 has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1060 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1060 providing 1.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the GeForce GTX 1060 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 6GB and the GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 6GB were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GeForce GTX 1060 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 6GB and the GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 6GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the GeForce GTX 1060 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 6GB and the GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 6GB are the same, which means the GTX 1060 and the GTX 1060 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the GeForce GTX 1060 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 6GB and the GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 6GB have 1280 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the GTX 1060 has 2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate and 1.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, but the has GB/sec greater memory bandwidth. Although the GPUs are very similar in performance, the GTX 1060 takes the edge.

The GeForce GTX 1060 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC 6GB requires 120 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 6GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1060 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1060. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The GeForce GTX 1060 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Pascal Architecture.

Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed P106-400-A1 which is a First Gen Pascal GPU amd has 10 SM activated, offering 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 48 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1531MHz and goes up to 1746MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2002MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1060 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC is a high level graphics card that can competently handle triple A titles from 2016. In full HD 1080p resolution it can confidently maintain 60+ frames per second on very high graphics settings. With the graphics adjusted down to High/Medium it can also handle between 50+ fps on 1440p. This card is also considerably smaller than the standard GeForce GTX 1060, whilst also being slightly more powerful. An excellent small form factor GTX 1060 option for freeing up space without sacrificing performance.

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1060 Gigabyte Mini ITX OC is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
