Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 1060 120 Watts
Radeon RX 590 175 Watts
Difference: 55 Watts (46%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 590 should be 33% quicker than the GeForce GTX 1060 in general, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon RX 590 262144 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1060 196608 MB/sec
Difference: 65536 (33%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 590 is much (about 76%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 1060. (explain)

Radeon RX 590 211536 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1060 120480 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 91056 (76%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1060 will be a lot (more or less 54%) better at AA than the Radeon RX 590, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1060 72288 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 590 47008 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 25280 (54%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
