You may want to update your sig-rig then. It says 290X.

If your interest is only 1080P, the GTX 1060 will infact be a huge upgrade from dual 570s. thumb.gif


If you can wait for them to come in stock, you can get them for as low as $249.

These types of hypothetical questions never really make sense. Just buy what you can afford of the newest tech, for your resolution. You will be much happier.

If you can wing it. This right here is an absolute STEAL for a 980 Ti http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=06G-P4-4996-KR It also comes with a $50 rebate. Bringing the final total to $350 for a brand new 980 Ti. I myself would have bought it over my current 1080 had the deal been around launch time.

Classified version is even cheaper by $10 with same rebate offer. This version is even better then the FTW.

I'm not limiting myself to 1080p, it's just that that's what my current monitor is. The computer is hooked up to a 4k TV but it doesn't really like to run 4k even at 30hz on the 570s.

Makes sense. 4K didn't really become a thing until the Kepler generation of cards.

@ 4k, gaming will be a struggle at anything less than a 1070, and even a single 1070 won't be able to max out some newer titles. However, that sounds like it's out of your budget.

This. Get the 1060, for $250. It doesn't make sense to wait at least a year or more for the 1080 to reach a low price when they will release a card that can hold its own alongside the last generation, ie an 1160 not being far off performance wise from a 1080 (speculation of course, but we see the numbers for 1060/980.)
I hope all that made sense.

AMD in GCN4 had done minimal archi performance improvement.
They improve compression to do same work at lower bandwidth

... but they have over 30% gap

1060 -> 4,4bln transistors
480 -> 5,7bln transistors

1060 is 10% better than 480.

AMD have 14nm vs NV 16nm and it did not help...
AMD 480 is 230mm^2
NV 1060 is 200mm^2

So AMD have more expensive cost since 14nm and more die size.
Did I mantion power conumption?
...and I shall not.


so there is really small chance that AMD will crush NV with VEGA and the price will drop.

Compare to 4870 or 5870....
Where 5870 had die size of 460 and fight with 470.... power consumption, price was on AMD side
Nova days...
AMD making *****y GPU...
... to compare nova days 480 should fight with with 1070.

and it fight with power consumption (sorry I did mantion).

I can't afford ANY card right now. I can't even afford any new games currently. That's half the reason I'm asking about the future right now.

You should realise that once a 1080 is $300, it will be a complete waste buying it over what is the current generation's $300 cards. That would be like buying a GTX 780 TI now - enjoy your already average card rapidly becoming worthless due to lack of driver support for new games whilst using 2x more power.

People are giving you their opinions since you asked a question that no one can answer accurately. Also why should people work this out for you? Can't you check ebay prices yourself of old cards and work it out?

You know 14nm and 16nm is just 20nm with finfit, right?
