WINDFORCE 2X Cooling System

The WINDFORCE 2X cooling system features two 90mm unique blade fans, alternate spinning fan design, pure copper composite heat-pipe, heat pipe direct touch technology, semi-passive 3D active fan, and protection back plate together delivering an effective heat dissipation capacity for higher performance at lower temperatures.

WINDFORCE 2X Cooling System- Fans

Alternate Spinning Fan Design

Optimize air flow by the alternate spinning fans that reduce air turbulence and effectively dissipate the heat.

90mm Unique Blade Fan Design

The airflow is spilt by the triangle fan edge, and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the air flow by 23% over traditional fans.

3D Active Fan

The semi-passive fans will remain off when the GPU is under a set loading or temperature for low power gaming. It allows gamers to enjoy gameplay in complete silence when the system is running light or idle.

WINDFORCE 2X Cooling System- Heat Pipe

Composite heat-pipe

The composite heat-pipe combines both thermal conductivity and phase transition for efficiently managing the transfer of heat between two solid interfaces which increases 29% of cooling capacity.

Heat Pipe Direct Touch

The pure copper heat pipe is shaped to maximize the direct contact area to the GPU.

WINDFORCE Cooling System- protection back plate

Protection back plate

Glorious black back plate provides the solid protection, strengthens the structure and inspires the passion for gaming.


One-click Super overclocking

With a simple click on AORUS Graphics engine utility, gamers can easily tune the card to meet their various gaming requirements without any overclocking knowledge, while saving the hassle of manual adjustment.


PUltra Durable Components

Engineered with the highest-grade chokes and capacitors, this graphic card delivers outstanding performance and durable system lifespan.

Built for OverClocking with 4+1 power phases

Compared to founders edition, the 4+1 power phases on the card make the MOSFET working at a lower temperature and provide more stable voltage output. (*founders edition:3+1)

Intuitive Utility

AORUS Graphics Engine

The cutting edge intuitive interface allows you to tune the clock speeds, voltage, fan performance, and power target in real-time according to your own gaming requirement.

Choose raw power for your gaming rig with this Gigabyte GeForce 1060 graphics card. The powerful or WINDFORCE 2X design produces outstanding cooling even when it's running hot courtesy of precisely proportioned and positioned fan blades, cooling structures and heat pipes that wick away heat to prevent instabilities. The core clock works at up to 1797MHz boost to ensure data is processed rapidly, and a massive 6GB of GDDR5 RAM ensures it can handle a wide range of monitors and VR devices.

When you want to exert control over this graphics card, use the Intuitive XTREME engine utility to get real-time data and to adjust your graphics card settings, including clock speeds, voltages and fan speeds, so that you can create the perfect overclocked system.
