Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1060 Review - Are Aorus the Best?

1611 ratings | 109300 views
Today up for review is the GTX 1060 9Gbps edition from Aorus, and like a few Aorus cards that have come through here, I put it both stock and overclocked against an RX 580 with a variety of new games. Though it may be hard to get one of these cards where you are in the world with the current GPU mining craze sucking up all the graphics cards! **US** Get a GTX 1060 Here: http://amzn.to/2sfFHS9 Get a GTX 1080 Here (Actually in stock): http://amzn.to/2sfCAcJ Get a GTX 1050 Ti Here (Actually in stock): http://amzn.to/2svkOXc **AUS** Get a GTX 1060 Here: http://www.staticice.com.au/cgi-bin/search.cgi?q=aorus+gtx+1060&spos=3 Or Check prices here: https://goo.gl/TJNVnD **UK** Check out www.overclockers.co.uk for great prices Or get an Aorus 1060 here: http://amzn.to/2tyEWaN *Check out my Video Editing PC - http://amzn.to/2oFKlrb ►Join our Forums for Discussion - www.techcity.tv/forum ►Shop on Amazon and Support Tech City for Free USA - http://amzn.to/1kZUX1z UK - http://amzn.to/1jr01dR CA - http://amzn.to/2gB4ehH ►www.facebook.com/techyescity ►www.twitter.com/techyescity ►www.instagram.com/techyescity ►Like the Content?

Is it a future proving card today? For 1080p gaming, nothing more. And is it worth it for 280$?

should've maybe compared against an aorus 580, best 580 imo

Hi! Iove the channel! I have quick question. I bought a gigabyte 1060 3gb windforce off eBay. It’s used. Was a bit sticky but I cleaned it up. I was wondering about the thickness of the thermal pads. What thickness should I get? Once I get home , I’ll measure the current ones. Any input from the tech yes city army is cool. Thank you!

Good video man, I have a question I bought this plate recently, it is normal to turn on and off the fans every time? , because what happens to me is that it reaches 50 degrees the fans turn on and then go down to 47, turn off, and return the same process again all the time, thanks for the response

can you set voltages and make the same overclock using msi afterburner instead of the aorus software?
jpthsd (10 months ago)
GTX 1060 6GB will lag your game as if you play 3440x1440 in 4k (mine is Dell 34.9 3K monitor 21:9)... At the beginning like 5 minutes, it ran fine until getting little hot like 55-60C the card start choking up the whole gaming experience..everything moved so slow until unplayable! My system i7-7800K Oc XMP 4.2Ghz, 32GB 3000Mhz Corsair LP OS is on C drive Samsung 840 Pro, D is on Samsung 850 Pro.!

Thinking of getting this aorus or the msi gaming x... thoughts? the aorus is £20 more than the MSI....
Brian Kelly (9 months ago)
You're very welcome, glad I could help ! If you're looking for the best cooling solution the Aorus has some little tweaks the Asus doesn't. If it's money looking to save then go with the Asus. I personally have a liking for MSI products, though they are a bit pricey when compared to their competitors. This is the second Gigabyte product I've purchased and in my little experience they are definitely a Top tier contender in price and function. I try not to be a fanboy but in my experience I've always had issues with AMD cards ( it may be the price range im buying ) the cpu's have always been solid though. It sure seems that best of the best are Intel/Nvidia Solutions - and budget wise AMD has the corner on that. I'm now rambling :) . My opinion is if it has more features at a similar price buy the one with more features - just because you are not using them now doesn't mean when you wont want thrm when you familliarize yourself with it.
Gershon Dharmanandan (10 months ago)
Brian Kelly thanks... Well I've changed my mind and deciding to go with either a Asus strix or gigabyte G1 gaming...
Brian Kelly (10 months ago)
Go with the Aorus - you can save a few dollars with the Asus model but it's not clocked as high as the Aorus .

I just bought this card, its on the way here as we speak! I'm so excited, the evga 1060 acx 2.0 I had was getting way too hot and prices dropped by 100 bucks a little under 30 days after I bought it so I returned it to amazon and ordered this. Finally a good card I'm not going to have buyers remorse with.

gtx 1060 extreme or aorus gtx 1060?
His channel is sort of addictive even when one is Not shopping,.. That voice is... so relaxing, and remjnds me of the bood days when Big Brother Australia could be counted on to make a boring season of Big Brother UK, tolerable.. ) This channel is *especially* addicting right now, as he is reviewing my own card! My best test is just to play my favorite little relaxation game, AIRCAR with all the settings ramped (except shadows,...) and not have too much judder. *Thank you my Australian Brother!* Can you tell me, the maximum safe numbers in the Aorus utility? I have the Rev 2.0 (I don't even benchmark, I play for a short time, then put the card and system back on LO-POWER Happy settings right away,. I am a VR developer, so, I try not to stress out my equipment too much. Or,.. for not too long at a stretch I should say...

Can you please tell me if you gtx aorus 1060 had any trouble when changing the led light because mine can only be blue or grean and yes i had downloas the drive for the graphic card
Charisma (1 year ago)
The orange is a turn off. Really wishes gigabyte would go for a more neutral look, perhaps dark grey accents rather than orange.
Novica Mitic (1 year ago)
Hey mate, i have the same card like you, but when i install aorus graphics engine and start program in one second i have blue screen and my pc restart and i need to go in safe mode to delite it then i can go again on my windows do you know how to fix this?

Somethings wrong with my cousins Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1060, the max temp he gets is 70c with the 100% fan speed, core clock only add +60 and I feel its not stable when he play more than an hour, Compare to my own MSI gtx 1060 GX it can OC to Core+ 175 stable max temp of 45 to 50c 100% fan speed. Should I tell him to return his newly bought card ?

How does this fare against "Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1060 Xtreme gaming (The one with 2 Fans) ? In performance? I think many people have this to ask.

But ! What is your configuration ? i5, i7 ? Ram ?
Joshua Moran (1 year ago)
Hey Bryan I just bought this card and it has micron memory. When at stock settings the memory stays at 8ghz but when overclocked I cant get it past 8.4 without a black screen or artifacting. Every other review I have seen about this card the reviewer was able to easily get it past 9ghz but I cant even get remotely close, do you know what I should do?
Joshua Moran (1 year ago)
Ah ok. I mine with it when I'm not using my pc but it probably won't make a significant difference over time. Thanks a ton for the reply, I seriously appreciate it.
Tech YES City (1 year ago)
Hey Josh, unfortunately there is really nothing you can do, overclocking is never guaranteed, and memory clocks on the 1060 don't matter a whole lot for maximum performance.
MultiMax (1 year ago)
Does anyone know if the orange accents on the card light up or not? I really can't tell clearly from the video.

Hi, will there be much difference with version 2.0 of 8Gbps that Amazon sells for $289.99? https://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-AORUS-GeForce-Computer-Graphics/dp/B0748JBT8J/ref=sr_1_2?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1503415407&sr=1-2&keywords=gtx+1060

Edgain (1 year ago)
Just got this card today and I set it up with the Gigabyte engine for the different overclock settings which configure correctly but for some reason out of the box the card isnt showing the memory clock at 9Gbps. It is set at 8008 Mhz and wont go higher, can someone shed some light on this issue please. Thank you.
Edgain (1 year ago)
Thank you for answer, found a workaround by flashing bios and installing the gigabyte site drivers, will clock now to 9Gbps. Before this if I bumped up the clock manually I would get artifacts on screen. Got the card quite cheap in my country so thats a relief. Gigabyte is not very transparent with some issues.
MultiMax (1 year ago)
Ed Gain It's because there's a 9Gbps model as well as a 8Gbps model of this card. Seems like you were mislead and got the 8Gbps model which is why you only see that listed and can't increase it. Doesn't matter though since performance is almost identical between the two versions.

Hey, how is this card performing? Would you recommend to buy it for around 330€ ≈ 380$ at the moment? I am not sure to buy this card or the MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G for 340€ ≈ 400$... I hope you can help me. Thanks.

Let me tell you something about AMD RX 480 card which i have. A lot of tech tubers tested so far only specific games that favors AMD cards or have good drivers support. But let me tell you how this card really works with random game that are not tripe AAA titels and do not have good driver support from AMD. Well is working like horse shit. If tech tubers will do random games test and do not pick that specific games for AMD to look good... well my friends the AMD cards will look like a shit after the rain against the competition cards from Nvidia. That is way i am selling my shitty RX 480 XFX GTR because now is the time to get a real good price thx to mining and i will get a GTX 1080 very soon. Trust me do not buy AMD RX 480/580 cards from AMD for gaming because you will be very disappointed how bad really works with random games or even old games that was befor this cards and do not have good drivers support. And i really do not care what AMD crybabies fanboys will say they can kiss AMD ass how much they want because i have the card and i really know now why people do not buy a lot of AMD cards for gaming and choose Nvidia cards for gaming instead. *Fuck OFF AMD !!*

RX 470/570 if you can find them. For used cards: GTX 970 or R9 280/380. Looking at Amazon India, GTX 1050Ti or RX 560 4GB are within price range, these are ~30% slower then those mentioned cards but they can still play games OK (Medium/High settings even for most demanding games at 1080p) if you cannot find better deals.
Mr Screamer (1 year ago)
You've missed the point of this graphics card. It isn't for gamers. It is for miners. More memory that runs faster. That's a miners card. Negligible in games, the premium in price is for the higher hash rate. You should have been running crypto benchmarks and then compared to other 1060's in games to show that a gamer doesn't get very much more for the extra money as your conclusion.
