Inno3D slaps hybrid cooler on Geforce GTX 1060

Liquid and air cooling

Inno3D has unveiled its newest Geforce GTX 1060 iChill Black graphics card with a hybrid cooler on top of Nvidia's GP106 Pascal GPU.

The Inno3D GTX 1060 iChill Black uses the same Accelero Hybrid S AiO hybrid cooler, which combines a dual-slot air cooler with AiO liquid cooling system, as the earlier unveiled GTX 1080 iChill Black and GTX 1070 iChill Black graphics card from Inno3D.

Such a cooling system has allowed Inno3D to push the GPU clocks up to 1280MHz base and 1784MHz Boost clocks, while 6GB of GDDR5 memory on a 192-bit memory interface, ended up clocked at 8.2GHz. Due to the high clock as well as a hybrid cooler, Inno3D had to give its GTX 1060 iChill Black additional power, so this one needs an additional 8-pin PCIe power connector.

In case you missed it, Nvidia's Geforce GTX 1060 is based on a GP106 GPU with 1280 CUDA cores, 80 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The card is available with either 3GB or 6GB of GDDR5 memory with a 192-bit memory interface.

The cooler has a pump-block component that is in direct contact with the GPU and connected to a 120x120mm radiator, as well as a secondary heatsink which cools the memory and the VRM part of the graphics card and is cooled by a 70mm fan.

Unfortunately, Inno3D did not announce any details regarding the price or the availability date but with such an extensive cooling system, we doubt that it will be one of the cheaper GTX 1060s on the market.
