In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB.

The GTX 1060 has a 107 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega, but the RX Vega has 144 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1060. As a result, the RX Vega exhibits a 207.4 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 107 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega, but the RX Vega has 8 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1060. As a result, the RX Vega exhibits a 6.9 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 RX Vega was released over a year more recently than the GTX 1060, and so the RX Vega is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 1060.

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 Vega 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 Vega also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX Vega has 63.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1060, which means that the memory performance of the RX Vega is much better than the GTX 1060.

The Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB has 3584 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 3494 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1060 is 3171. The RX Vega having 323 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX Vega delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1060.

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

The Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB requires 300 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the RX Vega and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1060. The RX Vega requires 180 Watts more than the GTX 1060 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX Vega may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1060.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB is an Enthusiast gaming Graphics Card based on the Fourth (4.0) Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The Vega 10 XL GPU offers support for HBM-2 Memory, DirectX 12.0 and Open GL 4.5. While the Radeon RX Vega Eclipse uses the same Vega 10 XT GPU as the Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, it is slightly down. This variant of the Vega 10 XL GPU with 56 Compute Units activated, offering 3584 Shader Processing Units, 224 TMUs and 56 ROPs, making it an estimated 12.5% slower than the Radeon RX Vega 64. This puts its predicted performance roughly in line with the GeForce GTX 1070.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1500MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with stacked HBM-2 Memory and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 2048-bit memory interface.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 8GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However,the GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming, In some limited scenarios, 8GB might be a bottleneck and Performance could be better were the Frame Buffer larger, however this would only be an issue in the most demanding games.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 300W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB competes with GeForce GTX 1070 8GB, which is available for $399.
Specs currently available suggest the Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB performance should be in the same region as the GeForce GTX 1070. However, the ultra-wide HBM2 memory may offer the Radeon RX Vega an advantage at higher resolutions.
System Suggestions
Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB HBM2 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.is
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.

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.
