    Good luck finding one for $250. It'll be $300 thanks to Founders My Wallet Edition prices. The FE cards are Nvidia's way to condition you to pay more for their graphic cards. And since the 1060 is $300 and performs like a GTX 970, guess what else costs $300 and performs like a GTX 970? A GTX 970... In fact you can probably find them for a little over $200 nowadays thanks to the RX 480. Eat that Founders Edition!
    On Phoronix forum, AMD always wins.

      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.
      In DX12/Vulkan (on windows) the 480 destroys the 1060. So I guess it depends on how much future proofing you want.

        Yes. The question that will be answered over time (2017+) is whether those 2304 shaders in RX 480 can be utilized 20% more optimally than today in order for RX 480 to generally outperform the GTX 1060's 1280 shaders running at a higher frequency.

          That is actually the most accurate description on nvidia that i have ever heard 😃

              No, it's not a question. The 480 already beats the 980 and 1060 in Vulkan. Current gen Nvidia hardware ~can't~ do async anything. It's performance is already in the toilet in cutting edge games and it will blatantly only get worse. The 1060 is yet another Nvidia scam to get you to spend money every year.

                  AMD GPUs do not support Feature Level 12_1 and will not even run future games that uses Feature Level 12_1, just like AMD SM2.0 GPUs that couldn't run SM 3.0 games at all.

                  0 FPS, period.

                  Nvidia GPUs are future proof, runs much more efficiently and quietly unlike AMD GPUs that will have to be replaced for Feature Level 12_1 support.

                  It's really sad that Michael does not ban the AMD trolls like SaucyJack and Qaridarium from crap posting in all Nvidia threads just because they're such losers at life.

                    It does look that way, which is why I'd like to see some Vulkan results on Linux.
                    Although, future-proofing... DX12/Vulkan will have to be standard before newer GPU's obsolete these cards.
