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]

AMD’s mid-range RX 590 is the latest refresh of their Polaris-based RX 580 from 2016, which in turn was a refresh of their RX 480 (2015). This iteration yields 15% higher clock speeds compared to the RX 580 which is reflected in the early benchmark data. This increased performance is fuelled by an increased power draw: the 580 had a TDP of 185W compared to the 590’s 225W, which compares to 210W for AMD’s high-performance Radeon RX Vega 56. Like the 8GB version of the RX 580, the RX 590 also has 8GB of GDDR5 with a 256GB/s memory bandwidth. With this iteration there isn’t a 4GB variant which is a good thing because 4GB can bottleneck an increasing proportion of games. Priced at $280, it is currently 20% more expensive than NVIDIA’s popular 6GB 1060, but is 12% faster in terms of effective speed. As a bonus, shoppers can get better value for money by purchasing one of the numerous game bundles that are currently available. [Nov '18 GPUPro]
