The hardware specifications of both GPUs are listed below:

01: GeForce GTX 1080 11Gbps

  • GPU: CP104-410
  • CUDA Cores:  2560
  • Memory: 8 GB GDDR5X
  • Memory Bus: 256-bit
  • Bandwidth: 352 Gb/s
  • Base Clock: 1607 MHz
  • Boost clock: 1733 MHz

02: GeForce GTX 1060 9Gbps

  • GPU: GP106-410
  • CUDA Cores: 1280
  • Memory: 6 GB GDDR5
  • Memory Bus: 192-bit
  • Bandwidth: 216 Gb/s
  • Base Clock: 1506 MHz
  • Boost clock: 1709 MHz

Comparatively, the previous version of GTX 1080 included 10Gbps with less bandwidth of 320 Gb/s. While the new GeForce GTX 1080 packs 11Gbps with 352 Gb/s.  GeForce GTX 1080 11Gbps even has a new GPU which is codenamed as GP104-410. However, the previous GTX 1080 with 10Gbps bandwidth has GPU codenamed as GP104-400.

Moreover, the older GeForce GTX 1060 came with 8Gbps and reduced bandwidth of 192Gbps. Meanwhile the new GeForce variant of GTX 1060 variants packs extra memory and bandwidth of 9Gbps and 216 GB/s.

It should be noted that regardless of minor increment in memory and bandwidth, the prices of both cards will hike above the stock / original versions.
