In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 6GB.

The GTX 1060 and the GeForce GTX 1070 have the same core clock speed of 1506 MHz, but the GeForce GTX 1070 has 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1060. As a result, the GeForce GTX 1070 exhibits a 60.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 1060. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1060 and the GeForce GTX 1070 have the same core clock speed of 1506 MHz, but the GeForce GTX 1070 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1060. As a result, the GeForce GTX 1070 exhibits a 24.1 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 1060. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 1060 was released less than a year after the GeForce GTX 1070, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GeForce GTX 1070 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GTX 1060, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 1070 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 1070 has 64.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1060, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 1070 is much better than the GTX 1060.

The GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 6GB has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1070 has 1920. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1060 is 2953 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1070 is 4362. The GeForce GTX 1070 having 1409 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 1070 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1060.

The GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 6GB requires 120 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1070 requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1060 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1070. The GeForce GTX 1070 requires 30 Watts more than the GTX 1060 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GTX 1070 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 1060.
