  1. If history repeats itself, your GTX 1060 would last around 2 years before you have to turn down settings. Looking at the performance of my 770 right now, it has to play most games at medium-high to get stable 60fps. And the card is just over 3 years old (from when i bought it). Don't have high hopes that your card will play 60fps ultra 3 years from now.
  2. When will GTX 20 series come?

    Nvidia won't replace CUDA with Tensor Cores. The Volta architecture has both. Just to add on this statement: Don't expect Tensor cores in consumer cards. It is just wasted die space (which increases cost and lowers yield) and increases power consumption. Tensor cores are used to accelerate specific operations which games just don't use. It's mostly used in the AI market (from the information i could gather).
  3. There is no way to know how long. The future can be unpredictable. It may end up like the Kepler generation, where the fps in some new games tanked, right after Maxwell launch, or it also could last 4-5 years (or more) due to the lack of innovation in recent years where GPUs don't get that much faster every generation. Every response here with a fixed timeframe is just an educated guess, nobody can know for sure.
  4. Adored TV nonsense again?

    I would suggest you pointing out what is wrong with video. I have watched it too and found it quite interesting and all the facts he pointed to seems legit (of course the speculation part is guess-work). So if you were so kind, please point out the flaws of the video. He doesn't seem biased in any way, which he has proven multiple times already.
  5. RX 580 8gb or GTX 1060 6gb

    Same price => RX 580
  6. Get either Coffeelake or Ryzen, no point buying Skylake since it doesn't have a discount. Would recommend Ryzen 5 1600 and a B350 mobo.
  7. the i5 6500

    The i7 3770 has Hyper-Threading, which the i5 does not. Skylake is old now and not worth getting. Ryzen and Coffeelake is the current replacement for those.
  8. Vega 56 clock speed issue

    First change to the high performance bios and also lower the voltage, the card is power throttled.
  9. RX Vega 64 with 650w power supply

    That is total system draw, so he should still have some headroom to work with. Of course, depends on the test system.
  10. It seems like your system has stability issues, but i can't figure out what exactly It also wouldn't hurt to contact AMD and hope they have a solution. Ryzen 5 1600X should NOT bottleneck any AMD or Nvdia GPUs up to a GTX 1080 in normal circumstances.
  11. My last suggestion would be updating the bios, early ryzen motherboards had bios problems.
  12. AMD used to be much better and used to have a super good architecture (which was much superiour than nvidias at that time). Sadly the sales weren't good enough and they ran out of money to keep it going. See HD 5870
  13. Constant, or just for a short time? Test for 5-10mins. CPUs downclock themselfs after time based on power consumption, temperature and more.
  14. Upgrading PC need some help

    Xeon E3 1231v3 (buy one used if you fan't find it new, should be around 150$) I have it and works great. Also, 16GB of RAM will also accelerate your workloads.
  15. Run a stresstest and tell us what clockspeed it runs on.
