RX 480 or 1060?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My parts will be getting here on Saturday, and right now I haven't bought a GPU for my system. Should I go for an aftermarket RX 480 or wait for the 1060? Also, will the 1060 aftermarket designs be available close to the 19th, or do we not know yet?

We don't know yet about board partners release date. At least as far as I know.

 

I would wait for benchmarks of GTX 1060 :)

Early impressions seem to suggest that the GTX 1060 will be somewhat faster and somewhat more expensive than the RX 480. Beyond that, we can really only guess. The longer you're willing to wait, the more informed you'll be.

 

Availability of other Nvidia Pascal cards has been poor so far, so I guess I'd assume the same will be true of the 1060.

Is there any info on when the NDA will be lifted for the benchmarks?

from what i think nvidia is saying, the 1060 will be more powerful and around the same cost, though we know how the msrp thing went with the 1070/80, + aftermarket on release date

btw rx480 aftermarket cards probably wont be released until around the release of the 1060, so i'd say wait for the 1060 reviews to come out then decide

Well you won't be able to get either an aftermarket 480 or any 1060 until around the 14-17th (for the 480) and the 19th for the 1060 (that's when the NDA will lift btw) so just wait a while

So the aftermarket cards will be available the same day as the FE?

I don't know, that's why I said any 1060 , I meant that no 1060 will be for sale till then regardless of type.

$249. It's a little more than the 480, but it's (apparently) more like a 980, while the 480 is more like a 970. Except while the 970 could overclock the difference away, by all accounts the 480 cannot.

 

Obviously I would wait for benchmarks to decide finally, but the 1060 is actually looking better than the 480 this time around, given such a modest price difference.

wait until the 1060 exists

1060 NDA is lifted on July 19th, same day as Founders Edition will be available. 

Price is stated to be 249$ MSRP but keep in mind how that turned out for the 1070/1080.

MSRP my hairy a**.

 

Still, I've been with nvidia for years now and I'll stick with it, so probably wait for 1060, especially with the power draw issue stuff. 

There's too many different oppinions for my oppinion. (Say whaaat)

I didn't want to sound too certain before we actually find them on sale for around the $249 MSRP. If there's availability issues it could be a while. I agree that $249 is probably fair if the benchmarks are accurate, assuming we can actually buy it for that.

So I found this in an article on Anand Tech: "Unlike the GTX 1080/1070 launch, the 19th is a hard launch for both the GTX 1060FE and for partner custom cardshttp://www.anandtech.com/show/10474/nvidia-announces-geforce-gtx-1060-july-19 

 

Am I interpreting this correctly to mean that aftermarket coolers will be available on July 19th?

Nvidia launched the card last night at an event they threw in Melbourne. AUD $429 hitting the shelves July 19th. I got some photos of it first hand.IMG_20160707_230429.jpg
