Why ? you play in what resolution ? and what DPC mean ?

yes - i led any reader to that in my link - some of us do not like to OC a gpu thumb.gif

If you're prone to motion sickness or seizure, be careful viewing this video.

^ In response to the above post, I can confirm that I sometimes get stuttering from excessive DPC latency on Total War: Warhammer's campaign map. But never in battles or any other game.

(Skipped ASUS Turbo intentionally).

I know this thread is over and done but here is how I look at it: If you plan to keep the card for 2 or more years, consider an AIB RX 480 8GB. Otherwise get the GTX 1060 as it's better now in non Vulkan/DX12 games and will deliver better image quality in DX9 and some OpenGL games (and like one DX11 game) via more driver tweaks.

If you plan to quickly junk your product you paid a few hundred for then get the more expensive one...makes perfect sense lachen.gif


Just get the RX 480. And how about this so called community help out new members by making the logical, properly functioning and apparently more long lasting cheaper card the default recommendation? I mean the 970 was the go to card even though it wasn't physiclly what was advertised.

$250 vs $250. If you upgrade every generation then the GTX 1060 can easily be said to be the more logical choice for the reasons I stated, not to mention it has been shown to be a decent overclocker already.

Plus there is no guarantee the RX 480 will surpass it outside of DX12/Vulkan games in the future, so you'd be buying on faith versus concrete evidence of the GTX 1060 currently being faster in almost all games (not to mention far more efficient).

- EDIT: Won't AIB RX 480 8GB cards cost more than these AIB GTX 1060s? And if you say stick to reference, enjoy all the heat and lack of overclocking (though at least it won't kill your motherboard anymore).

AIB vs AIB the 1060 is the one being cheaper atm, also nobody can tell if nvidia will improve its DX12 and vulkan performance, and again DPC latency is being worked on as nvidia stated, so it'll probably be fixed in the near future. The video you posted is more than a month old, just than a week later the 1070 was released and around a month later the 1080 was, time has passed, i'm pretty sure that's already been improved

It hasn't really been improved and also the DX12/Vulkan deficiencies can't really be fixed by driver updates. Updated architecture is needed. But yeah, I knew I was right about price.
