On top of that they are often clocking the chips at 90% of max clock on boost which is quite high and voltages can be higher than on NV at stock speed.
And the speeds and volts they set for multimonitor, bluray playback, etc. are way too high which ruins idle power consumption in reviews for decades for AMD, they never learn to keep those low.

Never go for high leakage, it means high losses. As said the only case I can think of is in sub zero cooling.

While GP106 is 13.8% smaller (200 & 232mm²) than Ellesmere, it is also clocked ~35% higher (1709 & 1266MHz). Most importantly the performance per watt on full Pascals (GTX 1060 & GTX 1080) is 53 - 79% higher than on RX 480. The fact that the 79% higher performance per watt over RX 480 is achieved on a > 35% larger and 37% higher clocked GPU is simply amazing.

I'm not saying that the RX 480 would hit anywhere similar performance per watt or frequency figures if made on TSMC 16nm FF+ instead of 14nm LPP, however most likely both of these figures would be significantly better if it was.

While comparing Apples A9 on 16nm TSMC to 14nm Samsung LPE may not be the best comparison, the Samsung A9 chip had marginally better battery life and lower temperature. I don't know the exact differences between LPP and LPE, but that doesn't seem to bode well for Vega on 16nm FF in terms of power consumption.

Hi,

I have used Radeon AIB boards since about 2003 current the Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 Vapor-X. I'm thinking about get an Asus Strix OC RX 480 or GTX 1060 for 1080P. Currently playing quite a lot of GTA 5 but also like the look of Hitman when they release the full game. I'm wondering which would one would be better, I plan on keeping for about 4 years. The RX has 8GB of RAM, GTX seems to be quicker according to reviews. Strix GTX 1060 (£325) is out now the RX 480 (£289) will be coming in August.

Thanks
Haider

As of late AMD cards generally age better. The 1060 is marginally faster, for the same price and has better efficiency. What games are you looking to play outside of GTA V and Hitman, because both games kind of play to one side of the GPU market? If you pick an RX480 I'd also recommend the Nitro+ over the Strix; quieter, higher boost, quite an ingenious design, removable fans, and generally better CS than ASUS.

If you plan on keeping a card that long, get a 1070.

4 years, you better aim for something else, either 1070 or if you're not in a hurry, wait for vega, sounds interesting and will be probably cheaper than nvidia.

Im running a gtx 580 i bought 5 1/2 years ago, and im waiting to see what vega will offer

Sure if you play on 720p which should stay under 4GB VRAM.
