In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 OC 6GB.

The GTX 1060 has a 89 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 1060. This results in the GTX 1060 providing 7.2 GTexel/s better texturing performance. 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 has a 89 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1060 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1060 providing 4.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 OC 6GB and the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

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 1060 KFA2 OC 6GB and the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 OC 6GB and the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB are the same, which means the GTX 1060 and the GTX 1060 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 OC 6GB and the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB have 1280 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the GTX 1060 has 7.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate and 4.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, but the has GB/sec greater memory bandwidth. Although the GPUs are very similar in performance, the GTX 1060 takes the edge.

The GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 OC 6GB requires 120 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1060 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1060. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 OC is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Pascal Architecture.

Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed P106-400-A1 which is a First Gen Pascal GPU amd has 10 SM activated, offering 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 48 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1518MHz and goes up to 1733MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2002MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 OC is a high performance card that can handle 2016's AAA games at 1080p producing 60+ frames per second on very high settings. Reducing the settings down to medium/high will allow gamers to maintain 60 fps at 1440p resolution.

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 OC is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
EVGA's GeForce GTX 1060 Superclocked GAMING card is another small form factor single fan performance graphics card, based on the Pascal Architecture.

Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed P106-400-A1 which is a First Gen Pascal GPU and has 10 SM activated, offering 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 48 ROPs.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2002MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate that the GeForce GTX 1060 offers performance just a bit lower than the GeForce GTX 980. As such, GeForce GTX 1060 is far faster than its predecessor the GeForce GTX 960 and even AMD's new Radeon RX 480 is comparative to this card.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1060 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal gaming Performance.
