390 and 970 were neck and neck in DX11 before, but for newer games 390 is pulling ahead significantly. Can we expect the same to happen with 480 vs 1060 in a year time (when NV releases new series)? Probably

The 480 has already caught up to the 1060 in DX11, and further extended its lead in DX12/Vulkan.

Just like GTX1060 vs RX480. Probably never going to buy Nvidia again, I took a gamble and totally regret it.
When I first bought this card it was doing better than the RX480 8GB in DX11 titles..Now even the GTX 1060 6gb loses most of the time.
Nvidia's drivers have been trash lately as well. Smh, should have stuck to AMD.

Inclusion of frame times, 1%/0.1 lows or, the very least, fps minimums would give a bigger picture here.

It's a shame AMD can never get this performance out at launch, when everyone is reviewing their hardware and comparing it to nvidia.

The Hardware Canucks article linked above is from December 5th, that gives time for the round of Holiday season purchases.

I love GCN GPUs, AMD has supported them incredibly well and they just keep on improving.

Just so everyone knows, the clock-speed the GTX 970 was running at was 1290MHz, and the R9 390 was running at 1000MHz, there's a decent bit of overclocking headroom left for both cards, especially the GTX 970.

Yeah minimums are very important, the averages are quite promising though.

And the majority of 480 reviews were done months ago. The sites doing them now dont have anywhere the level of useful information that the launch reviews did.

And the launch reviews showed a negative impression. Especially when the 1060 reviews came out, and everybody said the 1060 was faster. Heck, people on this forum still say the 1060 is faster, despite the new information.

Amd FineWine is great and all, but the first impressions from their early drivers are still there, negatively impacting them.

Hopefully now that their drivers are good, they will have high quality performance out of the gate with vega for once.

If people read those reviews back then they probably also read the part that talks about AMD drivers getting better with time, so I'd expect that they'd search for updated reviews when buying for the Holiday season.

Anyway, seems like Vega is on track:

Quote:
AMD Vega 10 is the star during RRA GPU certification with its solid performance outscoring its expected rival, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which underwent the same regulatory evaluation. Reports tell that AMD Vega 10 did very well in all aspect.

RRA is South Korea's National Radio Research Agency, a regulatory board that conducts tests and approves products that are produced by Silicon Valley-based companies before they are sold into the electronic market, Segment Next noted.
