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 Radeon RX 570 is the second in the line-up of AMD’s latest 500 series of GPUs targeting the popular mid-range market. The 500 series is built with second generation refined Polaris architecture and is a minor upgrade over the 400 series which was released just 10 months ago. On paper the RX 570 has a 3% higher boost clock speed, improved cooling and can deliver 224GB/s, compared to the RX 470’s 212GB/s. This should be sufficient for a smooth experience (min 60 fps) for many games (AMD reference Doom, Resident Evil Biohazard and Battlefield 1 at 1080p on ultra settings). Its die, with 2048 cores, is a cut down version of the new RX 580 (2384 cores) which is the $30 more expensive and around 14% faster flagship model from the 500 series. The 570 performs almost neck and neck with NVIDIA’s similarly priced, albeit 10 month old, GTX 1060-6GB. The Polaris refresh precedes AMD’s new Vega series of graphics cards due later this year for which details are currently unknown, but Vega is expected to yield a significant jump in performance. [Apr '17 GPUPro]
