Chev keep them in check... 192bit bus has limitation beyond 1080p ...we will see how the 1060 gtx compares to amd AIBs custom cooled rx 480... at the end of the day if they trade blows better for us the consumers...better prices,,,,

Im sure most people knew the 1060 would be slightly better then the RX480. The real question was: would the price beat or match the p/p of the RX480. Which we wont know till later.

Im going to guess that it probably wont. I see nvidia pricing the 1060 around 270-280ish.

Fake slide, hopefully? I don't think even NVIDIA often compares themselves directly to AMD, that seems extremely aggressive. That and the bogus scale on the slide. They'll compare the GTX 1060 to their own previous gen. products.

I kinda don't want to support AMD's shaky reference design by buying the RX480, but I kinda don't wanna pay NVIDIA prices. I might seriously go with a RX480 instead, despite the less than stellar launch. Will depend on AIB card performance and price.

the card is not meant for more than 1080p anyway


I will never understand ppl who claim cards like 970 or 480 are just fine for 1440p (it might be if Overwatch or dota are you most demanding games)

Exactly. Which is why I think nvidia choosing 3GB as the low end of the 1060 (if that is actually going to come out) as a somewhat ok choice for that market.
The 480 might pull close to 50 fps in some benchmarks at 1440p, but that is only the average, which means less than stellar performance for 1440p.

I'm also not convinced someone will purchase a less than 300$ to play at 1440p with current performance.

It's totally possible, I used to have a 1440p display with OC'd R9 290, so about the same amount of power as RX 480. But I'm gonna leave my piece of advice here for ppl that really wanna go for it.
The problem on that setup was fps consistency and CPU overhead. If I was a die-hard AMD fan with a limited budget I'd really go cheap with the GPU and purchase the least expensive 4GB RX480 just to invest that $100 more into a freesync monitor with at least 40Hz min sync range.
With 1060 you'd pay more for a GPU but you'd get a card that's slightly faster than RX 480 and most importantly will give you more consistent framerate, with min fps significantly closer to your avg fps.

I suppose both choices would be equally good, depends on your brand preference.

Power efficiency makes sense though, that is completely related to performance and powerdraw.

Look at the GTX 1070 being like 15% less power draw than the RX480 yet significantly faster.

VR performance I wouldn't be able to tell. I don't know they're methodology for that.


Nvidia's slides have been pretty damn accurate the past few rounds, I honestly don't doubt this will be 15-20% oc to oc than a rx 480 and be priced around 275.
But overall performance in what? Games? Rendering? How far it can go if you throw it?

Do you see the problem here? If they said how they got those results, then it wouldn't as much of a problem.

Yes.

Not "just fine" but adequate at a pinch for casual gamers who are willing to wind their settings back a bit (I use mini itx so I am restricted by size , power , and heat ) but still use 1440p .
and soon to be 4k on one of the machines ( so there goes gaming on that one - work only + maybe solitaire )

I will wait for a thorough AIB 480 vs AIB 1060 review then see if either are a worthy upgrade to my current 970. If not then I will start saving pennies for a 1070.
