In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 930 2GB.

The GT 930 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GT 930 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.

The GTX 1060 has 4096 MB more video memory than the GT 930, 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 176.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 930, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1060 is massively better than the GT 930.

The GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 930 2GB has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1060 is 3171 and the actual shader performance of the GT 930 is 0. The GTX 1060 having 3171 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 GT 930.

The GTX 1060 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 930. This means that the GTX 1060 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 930.

The GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB requires 120 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 930 2GB requires 35 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1060 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 930. The GTX 1060 requires 85 Watts more than the GT 930 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1060 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 930.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
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.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1607MHz and goes up to 1835MHz, 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
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.
Overview
GeForce GT 930 2GB is an upcoming middle-class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed ???? which has 3 SM activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 64-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at XXXXMHz and goes up to XXXXMHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1250MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
Coming Soon!

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 35W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power.
