Hmm, well, with my GTX 460 right now at 1080p it's more or less 60 FPS on all lows in BF4, at 720p it can do 90 steady, 120 with a few dips here and there, so seeing how the 1060 is roughly 4x as powerful as the 460, shouldn't be a prob unless all highs? Other than that, yeah, I recall people in the game chat bragging they had 300 FPS with 1070 on highs. But you know, I also pay attention to the GPGPU capability, and it looks like the 1070 stomps on the 1060 in that regard.
On topic, you know, I've been suspicious about X58 and high-end GPU's ever since I saw in the PassMark database that 4790K owners had higher 3D graphics scores than X58 hexacore owners with NVIDIA 9** series. Got me wondering if their overclock wasn't complete (e.g. QPI or uncore were at stock) or X58 had reached its limit.
One more reason why I prefer X79 to X58 is the real SATA III and the ability to build an array of two cheap SATA III drives, e.g. Crucial MX200's. Of course a decent NVMe drive will outperform that but at twice the cost!
