The ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 STRIX video card is built on the basis of the latest Pascal architecture, combining the modern power of the 16-nm FinFET process technology, an efficient DirectCU III cooling system and an attractive price.
The model ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 Strix was also good for its backplate on the reverse side, which protects the video card from deflection and damage to the elements. In the production of the video card, only high-quality elements were used that comply with the Super Alloy Power II technology, which guarantee stable operation at high loads and have an increased life time.
The video card is equipped with a proprietary cooling system DirectCU with index III, which promises increased efficiency through the use of fans with an upgraded impeller.
The main advantages of the video card:
+ Great appearance;
+ High factory overclocking;
+ Productive cooling system;
+ Printed circuit board of the older model and reliable component base;
+ Extended functionality (backlighting, connecting additional case fans, support for ASUS GPU Tweak II).
Disadvantages of the video card: Typical overclocking potential, large length, small gaps between the heat pipes.
SAPPHIRE PULSE Radeon RX Vega 56 belongs to the budget gaming series PULSE. The manufacturer did a very good job on the design and cooling of the video card: 2 massive fans (100 mm) from Champion manufacturer, a 6 mm heatpipe, a two-piece radiator, a pretty RGB backlight and a huge beautiful backplate. The video card pulls all modern games on ultra-high settings in FullHD. However, when playing UltraHD, you will have to lower the settings to a high or even medium level. In the program 3DMark Firestrike Ultra, the result is about 4800 points, which roughly corresponds to the result of the competitor’s 1070ti STRIX card without overclocking.
Among the main advantages of the Sapphire Radeon Pulse RX VEGA 56 8GB video card: high performance, factory overclocking, an efficient cooling system, beautiful design and pleasant backlighting, a dual BIOS switch, the ability to easy replacement of cooling system and convenient fan cleaning at home. Despite the fact that the video card is built on a shortened PCB of the Mini-ITX format, the device still turned out to be quite big and takes as many as 2.5 slots in your system case.
