GeForce GTX 1060 vs Radeon RX 640 benchmarks

For gaming, the GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card is better than the Radeon RX 640 in our tests.

Our database shows that 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 GeForce GTX 1060 has significantly more memory with 6 GiB of memory compared to 4 GiB. Lots of memory is good when playing at high resolutions or with many monitors.

In addition, the Radeon RX 640 has a significantly lower TDP at 50 W when compared to the GeForce GTX 1060 at 120 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 640.
