The ASUS GTX 1060 STRIX features a solid backplate and comes with all the usual NVIDIA Pascal features such as Gameworks, VRWorks, G-Sync, and Ansel. Aside from the fantastic RGB STRIX cooler which works wonderfully and looks absolutely great, this particular card features a 6+1 power phase design which drives the card for maximum overclocking potential!

It may not be suitable for gaming at 4k resolutions, but it certainly dominates 1080p and breezes through 1440p with relative ease. Is this the best GTX 1060 currently on the market? I would put my reputation on the line and say yes, yes it is…
