Not sure which one to get.

 

In (AUD), the 1060 6gb is $360, the 8gb RX is $340

Comparison

a0432f5a0504249bf4ae928d1c03c147.png

 

It's weird as it shows the 480 much cheaper then the 1060 when i check sites and they are basically only $20 on most. Interesting, If it was really that much cheaper ($60 usd which is like $80-90 AUD).

 

Has a bit more memory clock and a lot more core clock, better G3D mark obviously but the 480 is better value apparently.

 

If i can really find the 480 for $80-90 cheaper (which i dont assume is real lmao) i'll definetly get that, but at this point where they are only a $20 difference it remains a debate

They trade blows, but I'd still put my money on the 480 in the long run. 

 

The 480 also can be crossfired (although it's usually better to upgrade than add a second card), and the 480 also supports freesync, which is nice if you end up getting a new monitor. 

 

@Boom 

The $165 480 is probably picking up the 4gb variant. Synthetic benchmarks like G3D are also not that relevant. Look up recent game benchmarks. Oh, and comparing core clock speeds between different architectures is completely meaningless.

It's not, it clearly shows "6144 mb" for gtx and "8192 mb" for rx

It could still be picking up a 4gb variant, the price is, I assume, updated automatically (and daily) while the rest of it is filled in manually at the time of publication.

Update: The game im (i guess primarily? not entirely tho) buying this for is wildlands.

 

watching this, ubisoft seems to love nvidida (and like GTA) it preforms better on NVIDIA then other companies. It looks a lot nicer.

 

So judging by the votes (starting out 7-0, now 8-3) and the benchmarks and etc and opinions, the 1060 seems to be the way to go.

 

Seems to be more smooth on 2k17 too, even an overkill lmao (for 2k)

For what it's worth, most people tend to favor Nvidia (also, technically 8v5v1 now, I didn't vote). Just look at the 960 vs. the 380. The 380 is a better card in basically every single way (faster and cheaper), yet the 960 still sold far more. So I wouldn't necessarily put too much faith in which one wins in a vote. That being said, this is different as the 1060 and 480 are basically on par with each other. The 480 tends to do better in DX12 (although Nvidia just said their DX12 performance should improve....but what Nvidia says and what actually happens are two very different things) while they perform about the same at DX11 -- the 480 pulling ahead in AMD titles and the 1060 in Nvidia titles. Either way, the two will likely sit neck and neck for the foreseeable future (although, I do personally expect the 480 to pull ahead in the long run as AMD continues to optimize drivers and gain performance while Nvidia's drivers are already pretty well optimized). 

 

 

I looked up a couple other reviews for Wildlands, and I'm seeing mixed results. I'd wait until the 7th for the full release benchmarks to make any decision (although I still expect the 1060 to be ever so slightly better since it will still be DX11 and since it is an Nvidia game).

 

From OC3d:

 

 

One thing to note in this beta is that we have found a lot of graphical issues in this beta, particularly when it comes to texture streaming on Nvidia hardware at lower graphical settings.  Here are some benchmarks that we have taken from a single player match while driving, though it is worth noting that in this scenario that Nvidia's GTX 1060 suffered from some noteworthy texture streaming issues, resulting in the game using some extremely low-quality environmental textures, which may have given the GPU a performance advantage. On AMD hardware visuals were much better, which could explain how AMD's performance takes a nosedive at low settings when compared to Nvidia.
Of course, that's not high settings, but it is indicative of the game's current state.
 
And yes, very overkill for 2k17.

RX 480 generally costs less than GTX 1060 and they perform similarly. Driver support for AMD seems spotty going back and forth from stable to buggy every other update. If you buy through newegg you can get Doom for free with most RX 480 cards but not with 1060.

Spotty? I've owned a 390 since launch and haven't had any issues with their drivers, it's been flawless. I can't say the same about Nvidia for their recent drivers.

And they're both kind of right. Any game that has a DX12 implementation also has a DX11 variant. And no games are really built from the ground up with DX12, they're basically all DX11 with DX12 bolted on. Also, depending on when that thread was made (or what benchmarks he looked at) would affect the performance he's talking about. The 480 has gotten driver updates that have improved upon its performance since it was originally released. At launch a 1060 was about 10% ahead of a 480, but now the two perform more or less the same in DX11.

Nvidia hasn't exactly had a particular strong showing in the driver department as of late.

The asus card has a blower cooler, which should be avoided.

Whats wrong with this? (tbh i thought asus would be good lmao)

 

tbh there was one i found on a selling website and he almost took $280 (6gb), so like for $100 less or so (mabe $80 if im lucky) is the cooler that bad

blower coolers are loud and not particularly good. It has nothing to do with it being an Asus card -- blower coolers in general are mediocre.
