Thats the only thing that can save AMD. Stock and AIB cards.

and crossfire, no SLI for the 1060. People wanting a bang for buck high end perf system with two mid range cards(very popular choice) only have one choice now.

I was referring to FE edition, champ. Don't they start at $300, according to the article?

If its $250 for 6GB then the 480 was nice while it lasted. NVIDIA's big brand name means that even if the 1060 is mediocre is going to sell. Look at the 960.

Its a good thing that the 480 got a two week head start, at least.

Yeah, I'd have to agree. I'm actually going to buy AMD based purely on principle. I can live with giving up a few FPS if it means not buying into these kinds of tactics that NVidia is using.

no SLI is weird, but Im still convinced vast majority of that (casual) buyer segment doesnt care one bit about multi-GPU (and likely their system cant even support it .. nor do their 1080p monitors need it)


sucks for ppl looking for bang for buck high performance SLI set-up

Why refer to the more expensive version? Pricing starts at $250. That's like comparing the base model of last year's Lexus whatever to this year's model that's fully equipped and crying that it costs 15 grand more.

They'll care about prices and availability though. Outside of the US and Canada the price difference from the 480 is huge.

It didn't really.. Lol. It got a whole lot of hate for being worse than a 970 (somehow), waiting to compare to the 1060, and then had a blow your motherboard extravaganza.. Lets just say i don't think the 480 went the way AMD wanted. wink.gif

If the 1060 has sufficient stock it will probably make the ground up within a day.. Although i still think (just like the 960 owners), people will regret choosing the 1060 when they start seeing it compete with a 380 under DX12. tongue.gif
