GTX 1060 3GB vs AMD RX 480 for 1080p gaming - Page 5

post #41 of 68
1060 3GB is a cut down 1060 chip, vram slashed in half, I'd take the rx480 even with 4GB unless it's reference rx480 you're talking about.

Find $50 and get the rx 480 8gb or 1060 6gb. The 470 4gb or 1060 3gb don't make a lot of sense above $150.

although on second thought if that's supposed to be for BF4 1080p, rx480 really gets its ass handed to it by 1060

The crazy thing about those numbers is that the 1060 is faster than the Fury non-x, I really find that hard to believe as my 7970 at 1225/1750 was well over 80fps in that game and over 100fps when indoor, but what do I know.

You must know that TechPU uses 2 suits to test software on hardware. One with high DPC infused( default on pascal) and another without (Nvidia issues this to on review sites hence they did not pick this issue). Those results on the 1060 are theoretical fps you should be expected without the DPC issue facing every pascal GPU. Unfortunately, customers who spent their hard earned money on these cards are still expecting the goose to lay that golden egg.

OT: OP, I would either look for a used 970 or a used 290X as suggested earlier. Although, Nvidia does perform better on a few of the past BF titles, the 970 would be a tough sell due to the 3.5GB usable and it would only take that one game which either had genuine uae for that much VRAM or irresponsible coding by devs to bring that issue to your screen. In any case, I'd either choose a last gen AMD card or the current gen AMD card.

That chart is for the gullible. Here's what I got with a single 290 at stock . . .

I find rx480 beat by nvidia 980/1060 in every single review but okay, this is to be expected form amd fanboys, worse=better. I'm not even surprised, I've grown so accustomed I just nod politely most of the time.
But that's not what I wanted to say.

I just wanted to say that being on a tight budget you may wanna wait to see if nvidia/amd aren't going to bundle BF1 code with rx480 or 1060.

The word "Fanboy" used to be unacceptable in OCN before. biggrin.gif

Anyways, Techpowerup is good for retrieving Bioses, though.wink.gif

I've played 200hrs on my GTX1080, and now I find out it's uselss. Ehhh shocker.... used 7950 would have been better than Titan X Pascal.
