Hmm, yes, you are right, somewhat. Cheapest 1060 really is 250$. That is still 50$ above the cheapest 480, not 20$ as you claim.
Since 1080's MSRP was 599$ and the card retails for 650$,
and the 1070's MSRP was 379$ and the card retails for 440$,
I thought the same would hold for the 1060, but it seems Nvidia only like to rob their high class customers
Also, no need to use the 8Gb 480 for example here, 4Gb has exactly the same performance in this case. So 199$ vs 249$, not 239$ vs 249$. But I admit, it's 100$ as I expected.
