In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 6GB Edition are marginally better than the AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB.

The GTX 1060 has a 388 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 580, but the RX 580 has 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1060. As a result, the RX 580 exhibits a 49.4 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 has a 388 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the RX 580. This results in the GTX 1060 providing 38.8 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 580 was released less than a year after the GTX 1060, 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 RX 580 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 RX 580 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 580 has 61.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1060, which means that the memory performance of the RX 580 is much better than the GTX 1060.

The Radeon RX 580 8GB has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1060 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 6GB Edition has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 580 is 3087 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1060 is 3237. The GTX 1060 having 150 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the RX 580 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The RX 580 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1060. This means that the RX 580 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1060.

The Radeon RX 580 8GB requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1060 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 6GB Edition requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 580 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1060. The RX 580 requires 30 Watts more than the GTX 1060 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the RX 580 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 1060.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
First off we should point out that this is not the new AMD Vega graphics card line. The new AMD Radeon RX 500 series are an uprated version of the RX 400 series that they are replacing. This RX 580 8GB graphics card is one of the two more powerful models from the new AMD Radeon RX 500 Series.

This RX 580 is the 8GB version and there is also the lower VRAM version, RX580 4GB available.

Architecture
It equips a GPU codenamed Polaris 20 XTX, which has 2304 shader processing units, 144 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The RX 580 8GB central processing unit runs at 1257MHz and goes up to 1340MHz when in boost and turbo mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 2000MHz.

Power Consumption
The RX 580 8GB has a power TDP requirement of 150W. This means it will require at least a 500W PSU with one dedicated 8-pin connector.

Performance
Early benchmarks indicate that the AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB will be similar in performance to the Nvidia GTX 1060 in terms of gaming performance. This puts the RX 580 8GB about 8% faster than the model it replaced, the AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB. Comparing the RX 580 to RX 570 we see 1440p frame rates around 8-15% better with the RX580 version

System Suggestions
The new Radeon RX 580 8GB releases on the 18th April 2017 and is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a high-end processor, like the new Ryzen R5 and at least 8GB of RAM for optimal gaming performance.
Overview
Asus Strix GeForce GTX 1060 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 ASUS GTX 1060 Strix runs a central unit at 1645MHz and goes up to 1847MHz, 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 2000MHz.

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

Performance
