Our Verdict: Upgrading from GTX 1060 6GB to RX 580 is not recommended as it is less than 30% of improvement in performance. In general, a reasonable upgrade is between 30% and 50% or more to justify the purchase of new hardware.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

The GTX 1070 might be the mid-range flagship of the latest Pascal set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most entry-level PC gamers. On the other hand, the GTX 1060 6GB is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 254. NVIDIA ’s xx60 cards have always been defined by entry-level prices with performance that knocks on the door of mid-range graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the Pascal graphics card inside the GTX 1060 6GB, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

The GTX 1060 6GB is much more expensive than the GTX 960 as it costs a whopping $ 254. Compare this to the GTX 960, which came originally at a price of $ 199. Meanwhile, the AMD closest equivalent card is the RX 580 which costs $ 229. Spec for spec, this GTX 1060 6GB leapfrogs its direct predecessor, the GTX 960, by boasting 2 % more fps.

The GTX 1060 6GB has 6 GB RAM compared to the GTX 960 's 2 GB video memory. In our synthetic benchmarks, the GTX 1060 6GB blows past the GTX 960 and, amazingly, even the GTX 970 as well.

Fortunately, gaming performance was quite impressive. The GTX 1060 6GB consistently delivers great frame rate increases over the GTX 960 and it really justifies an upgrade. For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Hitman 2, Apex Legends, F1 2019, World War Z, Battlefield V at 61 fps to 68 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 65 fps.

AMD Radeon RX 580

AMD ’s xx80 cards have always been defined by mid-range prices with performance that knocks on the door of high-end graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the GCN 4.0 graphics card inside the RX 580, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend. The RX 580 is much more cheaper than the RX 480 as it costs $ 229. Compare this to the RX 480, which came originally at a price of $ 400. Meanwhile, the NVIDIA closest equivalent card is the GTX 1060 6GB which costs $ 254.

Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the RX 580 consistently delivers frame rate increases over the RX 480, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade. For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Final Fantasy XV, Apex Legends, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, F1 2019, Forza Horizon 4 at 62 fps to 68 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 65 fps.

For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Fallout 76, World War Z, Battlefield V at 64 fps to 70 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 66 fps.

GTX 1060 6GB vs RX 580 with i7-6700K vs i7-7700K at 1080p and ultra vs ultra settings

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB / i7-6700K

At 1440p, GTX 1060 6GB can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is clear that the GTX 1060 6GB is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for GTX 1060 6GB against the competition in budget mid-range cards. In terms of memory, the GTX 1060 6GB 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks.

AMD Radeon RX 580 / i7-7700K

At 1440p, RX 580 can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is clear that the RX 580 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for RX 580 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. In terms of memory, the RX 580 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks.

rx 580 and the GTX 1060 6GB are both good cards. They perform decently in comparison to one another. I would not get a GTX 1060 3GB though and the RX 570 would be only if I couldn't afford the GTX 1060 6Gb or RX 580. Also the RX 580 has more ram then the GTX 1060 6GB. If you gaming at 1080P then it doesn't matter all that much between 6GB vs 8GB cards but if you game at higher resolutions like 1440P then the RX 580 looks more attractive with it's larger 8GB frame buffer in the long term for gaming though performance wise it is still neck and neck with the 1060.http://www.techspot.com/review/1393-radeon-rx-580-vs-geforce-gtx-1060/

Which one is better and why? (for 1080p gaming)

They are pretty close. Either is better for an individual depending on some variables i'll list below. What games you play is also important when choosing.GTX 1060 6GB:- Lower Power Usage- Generally Lower Temps (Better cooled)- Better Performance in most Nvidia GameWorks titles, DirectX 11 and OpenGL games.- Excellent Overclocker (If that interests you)- CUDA might be something you benefit from if you work on any platforms that are optimised it.RX 580 8GB:- Slightly cheaper (Most the time)- 2GB of more VRAM- Better Performance in most AMD Gaming Evolved titles, DirectX 12 and Vulkan games- CrossFire (Mulit-GPU) compatible (The GTX 1060 cannot SLI)- Typically the stronger card overall on an average of ~5-8%- Can be paired with a FreeSync monitor for relatively cheap.To summarise, the RX 580 8GB often comes ahead in most games today but with higher power usage + temps at that. There are other things on the RX 580 that would indicate it to be better card in the long run due to the extra VRAM, better long-term driver support, better performance in newer APIs (Vulkan and DX12) and of course the ability to add another RX 580 in CrossFire (you might see one cheap). But of course you might be someone big on power efficiency, overclocking or like having a quieter/cooler card which the GTX 1060 does better at. Just go for whichever card has features that appeal more to you and your build.

3. AIB Cards - From the above, we see that the MSI RX 480 is 7% faster overall in TPUs 16 game test suite. From Below, the MSI 1060 Gaming X is 3% faster than the reference 1060 ... so we can can conclude that at the time of testing the MSI 1060 was 10% faster than the MSI 480 in the 16 game test suite4. Overclocking - We see there that the MSI 480 overclocks 8.6% and the MSI 1060 overclocks 15.1%.. So when the 1060 (10% performance advantage) is overclocked, the relative difference would be:https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/RX_480_Gaming_X/26.htmlhttps://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_1060_Gaming_X/27.html110% x (115.1 / 108.6) = 116.6% of the 480s speed or 16.6 % fasterAs for difference between brands ... the various brands trade wins depending on generation and model line but the EVGA SC is one to avoid as, unlike the competition, they use a reference PCB and referece style PCB cooling.5. Driver improvements - AMDs driver improvements have improved the performance of the 480 since originally tested. As we can see from the link here, TPU tested the results from the latest driver improvements and found an increase if 2.1% at 1080 p average across 21 games:https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/Radeon_Crimson_ReLive_Drivers/6.htmlUnfortunately, we have no info on what improvements have resulted from newer nVidia drivers but suffice to say, those improvements have not erased that 10% gap outta the box (16.6% in both overclocked.6. Cost - Last I looked (yesterday) the MSI 1060 6GB was about more than the MSI 480 8GB on newegg. But there are other costs worth considering7. Power - There is a significant difference in power usage between the two cards. One of the reasons for the MSI 480s performance,as stated in the review, is because it is able to use more power than many other 480s. That's 75 watts in typical gaming and 99 watts peakThe MSI 480 draws from 196 - 224 wattsThe MSI 1060 draws from 121 - 125 wattshttps://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/RX_480_Gaming_X/21.html8. Power Costs - While this is something you normally wouldn't consider, when cards are very close in performance, it may be of significance to many users, especially those in Europe and especially in urban / suburban locales.75 watts x 35 hours per week x 52.14 weeks per year x 3 years usage x Comment.131 US average electric cost per kw-hr / (1000 watts per kw=hr x 85% efficiency) = .289. Case Cooling - The rule of thump for case fans in a relatively quiet system is one (1) case fan per 75 watts for power. So for comparable interior case temps, you might want to include the cost of an extra case fan.10. Noise - The 480 is 3 dbA louder than the 1060https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/RX_480_Gaming_X/22.htmlhttps://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_1060_Gaming_X/23.htmlSo ... that's the data ... it's up to you to look at what you want to do with it ...- If you don't use MSI Afterburner, then the OC advantage may be of no interest to you- If you wear headphones, then the noise advantage will be of no interest to you- Initially the 480 has an apparent cost advantage but the larger PSU requirement and extra case fan eats that up. Considering power costs along with the preceding, the 1060 is the more cost effective buy by far- If you already have an oversized PSU then the power advantage is of no interest to you- If you don't pay for electricity cause it's included in rent, then the power advantage is of no interest to you- But most of all, if those 16 - 21 games that TPU uses for testing are not ones you play, then you need to pay specific attention to how each performs in games you do play... so start here and see how each performs in the games you are interested in.https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/RX_480_Gaming_X/6.htmlhttps://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_1060_Gaming_X/6.htmlHow each individual arrives at their choice will be different for everyone, there is no "wrong choice" here.====================================================Now the 580 is a bit faster than the 480 outta the box so it improves its position there by about 5% overall ... thatz still not enough to catch the 1060 when both are overclocked. On the downside, the 580 consumes a lot more power (25%) which also means more noise and heat

Should I get the 580 or the 1060? And if the 580, is there a big difference between 4gb and 8gb?

If you can find one at a reasonable price, get an RX 580. Unless you are gaming at 1440p Ultra or above, 4GB is enough.
