Looks like the GTX 1060 is no slouch.

I'd like to see some numbers too... would like to get into the GPU game as temps begin to fall into... fall. :D 1080 too expensive for me so 1070 is where I'm looking now. Would really like to see some good numbers on 1060, 1070, 1080 when it comes to PPW (points-per-watt).

My 1060 yields a PPD between 230k to 450k. Although for some reason it once went up to 550k when I first start to fold with it. I guess it's because of the WU differences. At 120W TDP and this price point, it is definitely a good choice points-per-watt wise. In a word, the new architecture truly rocks.

I did a little more research and it appers the 1060 aptly exceeds the 970 and matches the 980 for a lower price and less power usage. The next step up to the 1070 will cost $200 more, but has a better PP$ and PPW.

If we can get real numbers, we can figure this out.

1060 is a 120w TDP card, making somewhere near 300k ppd = 2,500 ppw
1070 is a 150w TDP card, Making somewhere near 600k ppd = 4,000 ppw
1080 is a 180w TDP card, making somewhere near 800k ppd = 4,444 ppw

Based on these numbers, the 1080 would win out.

At $1,200 I was hoping it would deliver more. If I ran two 1070's, I would save $350 or so on the initial price and the difference in wattage would cost me an extra $33 a year. So it would take 10 years to make up the difference in initial price. Doesn't seem worth it.

Two 1070 will get you past the 1M+PPD threshold and still less than $1k for the pair.

An overclocked Titan X P gives you on average 1.3 million PPD for 250 W (each of mine do this).

An overclocked 1080 gives you about 900 K PPD for 180 W (this is what my 1080 FTW does).
