From a consumer only perspective, I can agree. Both will be a great choice and will satisfy quite a few users at a great price.
From a longevity perspective, I think AMD has a slight edge here if we look at Vulkan. Some people prefer to look at mainly DX11 benchmarks, the 1060 is for them. Some prefer to look at future performance, the RX 480 is for them.
From an industry perspective, I cannot support anyone buying nVidia at all. For the industry to really move forward like it should, AMD needs to have a stronger foothold in the PC market than it has right now.

* I have similar issue with XFX 5870 biggrin.gif

Thank for the advice. I know that. But i said that to prove that their fan are cheap.

That the problem with sleeve they cant hold oil. While ball bearing do.

760- Mediocre
960- So bad compared to competition. And probably it's the gpu that sold the most.

I expect the same tbh. I am hoping that i am wrong because i dont want people that spent money on a product to not get the absolute best performance out of their money.

Please 1060 age a bit better than the last x60 gpus. tongue.gif


The 760 was also GK104.

I recall owning a 8500 GT, GTX 550 Ti and GTX 660. The $80 price increase definitely wasn't warranted but wasn't a bad card for ~$160 in late 2012

Please 1060 age a bit better than the last x60 gpus. tongue.gif

it depends how you look at them

gtx660\ti were great cards that time and they never had high frame times also great efficiency in dx11(cpu overhead) never require other api like mantle to run bf4 with good performance and no crashes(memory leak was quite often in mantle using tahiti).
the ti performs equally to an 960 if overclocked

760 was a refresh and 960 kinda of the same..

so far the 1060 and 480 seem to be pretty equal by cost and performance with a small advantage on a 1060 if you overclock

Nailed it. AMD has always been a BIT better cost/perf, while Nvidia generally performed better (at the cost of price)

The 970 (which is primarily what the RX 480 is compared to) costed that much a few months ago? Even if you take the small lead that the RX 480 has over the 970, it doesn't even come close to $449 performance.

So the 480 and 1060 don't come close to the 980? The reference 480 cooler is garbage and it's still only 6% slower than the 1060, in DX11.. If you're lumping the 480 in the 970's camp then you may as well do the same with the 1060, one can't be a failure and the other a monumental success.

With sleeve bearings dont use oil. Use a lil grease like for a paintball gun. Low resistance but will cling to the sides.

but as it been said before the GTX970 is pretty much MAXED out performance wise, where as the RX 480 will get better and better with each newer driver 3 or 4 Drivers down the road, RX 480 will be WAAAAY ahead of the 970 and will be trading blows with the GTX980 thumb.gif
