The news of NVIDIA looking to launch a GTX 1060 variant with 5 GB GDDR5 RAM targeted at cybercafes broke yesterday but we only got to see a few pictures of the actual GPU and not the card itself. Now, Videocardz has posted the first pics of the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 5GB Windforce OC on its site and from the looks of it is identical to the GTX 1060 6 GB Windforce OC.
Gigabyte also revealed some information about the specs of the card. The clock speeds will be the same as the 6 GB variant (1582/1797 MHz in OC mode; 1556/1771 MHz in gaming mode), however, the memory bus is a 160-bit bus compared to the 192-bit bus in the 6 GB variant. Memory is clocked at 8008 MHz. The new 5 GB variant also sports the Windforce 2X cooling solution and comes with a full cover backplate. Display outs include 2 DVI ports, one HDMI, and one DisplayPort.
As reported previously, the new is solely meant for cybercafe owners to buy in bulk, which will help them save a significant amount of money and also enable their PCs to run the latest games at 1080p max settings. This GPU is currently exclusive to China and will not be available via retail channels.
