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

The GTX 1060 has a 517 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 560D. This results in the GTX 1060 providing 67.6 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 517 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the RX 560D. This results in the GTX 1060 providing 59.7 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 560D 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 560D, 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 192.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 560D, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1060 is massively better than the RX 560D.

The Radeon RX 560D 2GB has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 560D is 699 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1060 is 3171. The GTX 1060 having 2472 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 560D.

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

The Radeon RX 560D 2GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the RX 560D and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1060. The GTX 1060 requires 45 Watts more than the RX 560D 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 560D.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon RX 560D 2GB is a middle-class graphics card based on the third revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
It equips a GPU codenamed Polaris 10 which is a 1st gen Polaris GPU, offering 896 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it requires at least a 350W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
This graphics card is rebrand of the Radeon RX 460 and was designed and marketed towards cryptocurrency miners and low to mid-end gaming. 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 560D 2GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 1600p screen res and expect around 45+FPS. THe low TDP makes it a cost effective choice for cryptocurrency miners.

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 460 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a mid range CPU and 8GB of system memory for optimal performance.
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.
