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 RX 460 is the third Polaris based 14 nm graphics card released by AMD this year, it follows the 470 and 480). The Polaris 11 GPU which drives the RX 460 is around 50% less powerful than the Polaris 10 GPU used by both the RX 480 and RX 470. Looking at the provisional average benchmarks (we only four samples of the RX 460 at this time) of the RX 460 and RX 480 shows that the performance gap of 50% percent is in line with the specs. The RX 460 is available with custom coolers from launch and it comes in both 2GB and 4GB varieties. With list prices starting from $120 for the 2GB variant the RX 460 offers decent value for money at the lower end of the graphics card spectrum. The 4GB version is somewhat poor value for money at the $150 price point since an RX 480 is only an additional $50 for double the performance.
