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

The GTX 1060 has a 101 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 1070, but the GeForce GTX 1070 has 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1060. As a result, the GeForce GTX 1070 exhibits a 52.1 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 101 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 1070, but the GeForce GTX 1070 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1060. As a result, the GeForce GTX 1070 exhibits a 19.3 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 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1070 has 1920. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1060 is 3171 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1070 is 4362. The GeForce GTX 1070 having 1191 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 EVGA SC GAMING 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.

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.
