The GTX 1060 is Nvidia’s third 16 nm Pascal based GPU. It follows last month’s release of the higher end GTX 1070 and 1080. The 1060 has a TDP of 120 Watts and its aftermarket variants are available right away alongside the reference Founders edition. Comparing the GTX 1060 and 970 shows that although the 1060 leads by 12% it is also currently more expensive. Nvidia rushed the release of the GTX 1060 to help retain market share that may otherwise have gone to AMD’s new Polaris based RX 480. Comparing the RX 480 and GTX 1060 shows that for pre DX12 games the 1060 edges ahead by 12%. Due to better hardware compatibility, the RX 480 is able to match the 1060 in DX12 games but this will remain a corner case until most games are optimized for DX12 (likely to take several years). The 1060 has the potential to become a hugely successful card, but that all depends on where prices settle. [Jul '16 GPUPro]

The AMD R9 390X is a rebadged power hungry (350W+) 290X. The 390X has a slightly increased GPU clock speed, a significantly increased memory speed and a higher minimum VRAM of 8GB but it shares the same core GPU hardware. Looking at the overclocked performance differences between the older 290X and the 390X shows that the two cards are approximately the same, which comes as no surprise considering that the 390X is actually just a factory overclocked 290X. Smart shoppers obviously won't be happy to pay AMD a premium of around $100 simply for overclocking a two year old 290X. That said the 390X does offer stellar performance, particularly at 4K resolutions and if prices drop significantly it could become a strong contender. We only have one MSI sample benchmark for the 390X so far so we will revisit this GPU when we have a better sample of all the available cards. [Jun '15 GPUPro]
