1060 will have exactly the same 38% sp deficit to 980, but only 25% less ROPs. 980 runs at 1253MHz in game, so 1060 would have to boost to 1900MHz to achieve the same 53% advantage as 1070 has over TX.
However, 1070 has worse mem bandwidth than TX, while 1060 might more or less equal 980 if they use 8GHz DDR5 on 192-bit.
The question is whether 1060 needs that 1900MHz clock to equal 980. 1070 does cause it has much worse ROP/bandwidth ratio than Titan X, 1060 will look better in that respect if compared to 980.
My official prediction is 1060 is gonna equal or slightly beat reference 980. It's gonna beat RX 480 in majority of games too since reference 980 is 10% faster than RX 480.
I say techpowerup will show it 15% faster than RX 480 on 1920x1080 overall performance chart, and the card is gonna show major power/performance advantage over RX 480, say around 1.6X
edit: lol, I missed the post above, and it does say 15% over RX 480
