GeForce GTX 1060 vs Radeon RX 570 comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the GeForce GTX 1060 GPU is faster than the Radeon RX 570 in gaming.

The GeForce GTX 1060 has a significantly higher core clock speed. The core clock speed (or base speed) is the frequency at which the GPU core runs. This metric makes sense when comparing GPUs of a similar architecture or generation.

Next up, in terms of GPU memory, the Radeon RX 570 has slightly more memory with 8 GiB of memory compared to 6 GiB. Memory size doesn't directly affect performance, but too little memory will certainly degrade gaming performance.

In addition, the GeForce GTX 1060 has a slightly lower TDP at 120 W when compared to the Radeon RX 570 at 150 W. TDP (Thermal Design Power) measures total heat output from the chip.

In terms of raw gaming performance in our GPU benchmark, the GeForce GTX 1060 is better than the Radeon RX 570.
