The 3GB GTX 1060 follows last month’s release of the 6GB GTX 1060. The 3GB variant not only has reduced memory but Nvidia have also disabled 10 percent of the processing cores from 1,280 down to 1,152. There is no reference edition of the 3GB 1060 but the partner cards are already available (at launch). Comparing the GTX 6GB 1060 and 3GB 1060 shows that the 6GB 1060 leads, on average, by 7% but it is also currently 15% more expensive. The GTX 1060 is Nvidia’s answer to AMD’s new Polaris based RX 470. Comparing the RX 470 and 3GB 1060 shows that for pre DX12 games the 1060 edges ahead by 11%. The RX 470 is able to match the 3GB 1060 in DX12 games but this will remain a corner case until most games are optimized for DX12 (likely to take several years). The 3GB 1060 has the potential to become a hugely successful card, especially if prices drop below $200. [Sep '16 GPUPro]

The RX 580 launched this week and is AMD’s latest flagship GPU which is based on a second generation Polaris architecture. The 580 is a refresh of the RX 480 which was released just 10 months ago. Modifications to the architecture have resulted in improved thermals and increased clock speeds by around 10%. The RX 580 will come with either 4GB or 8GB of high-bandwidth GDDR5 memory. Exact pricing for this mid-range chip remains to be seen, but the RX 500 series is likely to cannibalize sales of AMD’s 400 series. Performance wise, the RX 580 is in direct competition with NVIDIA’s popular GTX 1060 6GB which is now 9 months old. Perhaps after last year’s ill timed head to head release of the RX 480 and the faster but similarly priced GTX 1060 (a standoff which NVIDIA seem to have won based on market share), AMD are attempting to draw back some market share with the newer, slightly upgraded RX 580. [Apr '17 GPUPro]
