It's the difference between losing to the GTX 1050 to being more or less equal to it. Let's not relativize this.

Ouch. Is there any mention of the number of cores on the box at least?

Kinda shady but not technically dishonest.
It may be listed on Newegg, but may not in other retailers. This shouldn't be done, period.

The 1060 3gb and 6gb are marketed as having different stats. Not the same thing.
The difference is only when it comes to one being called GTX 1060 6 GB and the other GTX 1060 3 GB. Unless you go looking for other differences that you may not know exist and thus may not be inclined to look for, the difference seems to be only in the VRAM amount.
The MSI GTX 1060 6 GB that I bought, while being a great card, MSI makes absolutely no mention of the amount of cores on the box. Nowhere. It lists the GPU model as being the GTX 1060, the amount of VRAM as 6 GB, the memory bus as being 192-bit and the output ports. Number of cores? Nowhere to be seen. What would happen if you were looking at these product boxes at a retail store?
Edit: and guess what? The 3 GB model also doesn't say how many cores it has: https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_1060_Gaming_X_3_GB/images/package2.jpg
Here is the 6 GB version for comparison: https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_1060_Gaming_X/images/package2.jpg
This is shady behaviour by both companies and MSI too in this case (and others probably too). Funny that Nvidia enforces so many common logo and design features on product boxes across different vendors but conveniently leaves the amount of cores out of the guidelines.
What is the problem in calling them RX 560D as they did for the Asian markets they were selling in first? Or RX 560 LE, or whatever. Something to tell them apart.Edited by tpi2007 - 12/5/17 at 5:17pm
