In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 6GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 560 2GB.

The GTX 1060 has a 331 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 560. This results in the GTX 1060 providing 45.3 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 331 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the RX 560. This results in the GTX 1060 providing 53.5 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 560 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 GTX 1060 has 4096 MB more video memory than the RX 560, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1060 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1060 has 80.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 560, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1060 is much better than the RX 560.

The Radeon RX 560 2GB has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 6GB has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 560 is 1306 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1060 is 2953. The GTX 1060 having 1647 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1060 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 560.

The RX 560 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1060. This means that the RX 560 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1060.

The Radeon RX 560 2GB requires 80 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 6GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 560 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1060. The GTX 1060 requires 40 Watts more than the RX 560 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1060 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 560.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 80W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no Extra Connectors are required.

Performance
This graphics card was designed and marketed towards the competitive MOBO gamers. A light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 560 2GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 900p screen res and expect around 45+FPS

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 560 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. Higher resolutions will be an issue due to the limited 2GB of VRAM.. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 6GB 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 1506MHz and goes up to 1709MHz, in Boost 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 Asus Dual 6GB will allow for mid/high level performance on most 2016 released AAA games. This card can be expected to deliver frame rates of 60+ fps at 1080p screen resolution on high settings and 50+ fps on 1440p resolution.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1060 Asus Dual 6GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
