EVGA Superclocked GeForce GTX 1060- Made for Intensive Gaming with 8K Graphics Over DisplayPort 1.4
The Superclocked GeForce GTX 1060 is one of the most powerful graphics cards made by EVGA and on par with other similar products like the NVIDIA Titan X that support DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0. Compared to the earlier EVGA GeForce GTX 960 with DisplayPort 1.2, the Superclocked GeForce GTX 1060 can now take advantage of the newer DisplayPort 1.4 to support 8.1 Gb/s per lane which at 4 lanes provides 32.4 Gb/s of throughput in contrast to the DisplayPort 1.2 which supports 5.4 Gb/s per lane. DisplayPort 1.4 also supports Display Stream Compression 1.2 to provide 8K (7680×4320) at 60 Hz with 10-bit color and HDR, or 4K (3840×2160) at 120 Hz with 10-bit color and HDR.
