In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB.

The GTX 1060 has a 92 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce RTX 2080, but the GeForce RTX 2080 has 104 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1060. As a result, the GeForce RTX 2080 exhibits a 150.2 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 92 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce RTX 2080, but the GeForce RTX 2080 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1060. As a result, the GeForce RTX 2080 exhibits a 19.9 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 GeForce RTX 2080 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 1060, and so the GeForce RTX 2080 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 GeForce RTX 2080 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 RTX 2080 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce RTX 2080 has 255.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1060, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 is massively better than the GTX 1060.

The GeForce RTX 2080 has 2944 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 is 5299 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1060 is 3171. The GeForce RTX 2080 having 2128 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce RTX 2080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1060.

The GeForce RTX 2080 transistor size technology is 4 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1060. This means that the GeForce RTX 2080 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1060.

The GeForce RTX 2080 requires 215 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the GeForce RTX 2080 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1060. The GeForce RTX 2080 requires 95 Watts more than the GTX 1060 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce RTX 2080 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1060.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 2080 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Turing Architecture. This card has also been rumoured to be called the GeForce GTX 2080 or the GeForce GTX 1180. Architecture It equips a Turing GPU Codenamed GT104 which is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 2944 Shader Processing Units, 184 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It also has 368 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU Name: TU104-400A-A1 GPU The central unit runs at 1515MHz and goes up to 1800MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448 Gb/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 215W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with available 8-pin + 6-pin power connector. Performance Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 suggests it will be faster than the Geforce GTX 1080 Ti, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2080 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM 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.
