In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 5GB.

The GTX 1060 has a 101 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 1060. This results in the GTX 1060 providing 8.1 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 101 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1060 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1060 providing 4.8 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 GTX 1060 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 1060, and so the GTX 1060 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 GTX 1060 has 1024 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 GTX 1060 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1060 has 32 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1060, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1060 is noticeably better than the GTX 1060.

Both the GeForce GTX 1060 5GB and the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB have 1280 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the GTX 1060 has 8.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate, 4.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, and 32 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth, so should have a noticeably faster performance than the GTX 1060.

The GeForce GTX 1060 5GB requires 7 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 GTX 1060 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1060. The GTX 1060 requires 113 Watts more than the GTX 1060 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 GTX 1060.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1060 5GB 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 Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 5GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 160-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2002MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, the GeForce GTX 1060 5GB can be run exclusively through the PCIe port.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate that GeForce GTX 1060 5GB offers Performance around the Level of GeForce GTX 970. As such, the GeForce GTX 1060 5GB is almost twice as fast as GeForce GTX 960 and even AMD's Radeon RX 480 is beaten in over 5%.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1060 5GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance. The GeForce GTX 1060 5GB is currently exclusive to the Asia Pacific markets.
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.
