    All I see is how amazing are the numbers with mesa on the RX480.
    Windows benchmarks published by other sites are showing similar performance for GTX 1060 and RX 480 (and R9 390). This increases the probability that RX 480 Linux performance will be competitive to GTX 1060 after additional Mesa optimizations.

    In terms of power consumption, GTX 1060 wins.

      And he did it again. Comparing the proprietary Nvidia driver vs. the open AMD- driver, leaving out AMD in the OpenCL- figures. This site is just a piece of Nvidia propaganda. It makes no sense to stay here any longer.

        The conclusion is the same everywhere: Polaris is plain bad from a technical standpoint compared to Pascal. Its price point can make up for that, and that's the end of the story. The open driver is very good for Linux however (finally ! as a GCN1 owner, I got nothing but promises back then ...), so that's another selling point. But in no event I would place the RX480 ref card in one of my PCs, it's too easy to run into motherboard issues without actively looking for them.

          Next time he'll test a card from AMD, he'll probably do an AMDGPU-Pro vs nouveau comparison. You know, because it's easier this way.

            Poor AMD, on Linux it's clear which card to pick, but on the Windows side (where most money is spend), the GTX 1060 is the clear winner on price/performance/watt.

            Nevertheless, pretty good results for Mesa. It's shaping up nicely.

              Citation needed. Comparable die size, comparable process, comparable performance (higher on newer apps, lower on older apps), slightly higher power draw but also more VRAM. What makes it "bad" ?

              If you bias the set of games towards older, ROP-intensive apps then the 1060 wins, and if you bias towards newer, shader-intensive apps then the 480 wins. Look for review sites that don't stick to the reviewers guide and you'll get a more balanced picture.

              Huh ? What motherboard issues are you talking about ? Drivers have already been fixed to balance the power draw between the connectors, is there some other issue you are talking about ?

                Well, if +25% (or +20%, depending on the reference) qualifies for "slightly higher power draw", I'd love to see your drivers offer slightly higher performance

                Edit: I'm really curious what in my original message made go into moderation...

                  I have no idea what to do at this point. The gtx 1060 looks great, but the rx 480 has the open-source drivers... Meanwhile, my hd 6850 is getting too old.

                    Well, 1280*1.7=2176, 2304*1.2=2764 and 2764/2176=1.27 so RX 480 could be 27% more powerful if the two GPUs have the same IPC.

                    Is it possible to measure GPU IPC on Linux?


                    Edit 1: "more powerful" assuming mature drivers (available only on Windows for now).

                    Edit 2: Replace "would" with "could".

                      Price? Ehm nope?
                      Performance? Its about 5-6% in average. That's nothing about clear winner.
                      Watt. Yes thats true.
