I'd like to see some numbers too... would like to get into the GPU game as temps begin to fall into... fall. 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
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.
