Thats 480 vs 1060 with December drivers. Both reference and overclocked models.

The 480 vs 1060 debate will rumble on until nVidia release a new product and gimp the 1060 tongue.gif
Essentially though it seems to depends more on what you play; DX11 or DX12 titles.

It really depends on the title.

However, the GTX 1060 6GB tends to be more expensive than a RX 480 4GB , so if you can deal with 4GB rather than 8GB VRAM the RX 480 becomes a much better value (a RX 480 4GB can be had for $170-190 while a GTX 1060 6GB requires at least $240) . The price difference between a RX 480 8GB from a brand that also does Nvidia cards and a GTX 1060 6GB is less.

For example:
MSI RX 480 8GB ARMOR = $230 ... MSI GTX 1060 6GB ARMOR = $260-270
MSI RX 480 8GB GAMING X = $250 ... MSI GTX 1060 6GB GAMING X = $285
Gigabyte G1 Gaming RX 480 8GB = $230 ... Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 1060 6GB = $250
ASUS STRIX RX 480 8GB = $260 ... ASUS DUAL GTX 1060 6GB = $260-270 , ASUS STRIX GTX 1060 6GB $290-300

Installed today my MSI Gaming X 480 8gb i love it! Awesome quality, awesome aesthetics, incredible temps under firestrike 1080p , stock clock +50% power limit, 40% fans (ONLY 1480 rpm/min) my max temp is 56C !!!

MSI is by far the most silent and the coolest on the market! Their cards are just incredibile!

revisited right before RX 580/RX 570 launches http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-radeon-rx-480-graphics-card-roundup,4962.html
RX 480 ASUS STRIX w/ IR3555 (60A)

RX 480 HIS IceQX2 w/ IR DirectFETs (XFX GTR uses this PCB AFAIK)

MSI Gaming X w/ regular mosfets & supposedly best cooler

Sapphire Nitro+ w / IR3553 (40A) and poor cooler

well those sapphire 480 results made me sad, I've never seen much over 60 though personally but maybe the vrms are like 5 billion degrees :|

Sapphire had underdeliver this time, big plastic shroud but tiny heatsink
remember their tri X, Vapor X, and Nitro 300 lineup? legendary
this time? total ricer

Board design is pretty solid. Even though TH article mistakenly lists MOSFETs as IR3555, when it's IR3553, which are worse, they're still fine. Heatsink itself contacts everything it should contact, it just seems kind of... small. In Sapphires (and I guess THs too) defense there's a huge variance between samples. My particular Nitro+ consumes roughly a quarter less power than theirs, temps differ accordingly.

the temps differ is most likely due to silicon lottery, most gigabyte G1s are trash with high pw usg and high temps, but some only goes to low 70s on load
