True, but that came from reviews though. They are just fanning the flame sort of speak. Anyone who's had an AMD card will know that performance will improve overtime. Be it because of a combo of drivers and game updates or something else (something mentioned in the video i quoted earlier from another user}. So overtime the performance gap between the 480 and 970 will widen just like the 7970 and 680 when that was released, etc, etc.
It won't surprise me that initially the 1060 will be faster then the 480. But over time, the table will turn on perf./price.
The problem is that people don't see the trend from history. Which is why I thought that video
was so good.

That's a prime example of what I'm saying. History repeating itself.Edited by EastCoast - 6/29/16 at 10:25pm
