Thoughts: The GTX 1060 looks to be a solid performing card so far, with performance roughly at the promised GTX 980 range, although it's still too early to say how exactly good it is. As a RX 480 contender, it looks to be outpacing the RX 480 marginally in the tested titles (with the exception of a few) but worse in price to performance. All in all, it's a good buy if NVIDIA delivers on their $250 MSRP. Will it have the pricing and supply issues that plagued the GTX 1070/GTX 1080? We'll have to see.

 

EDIT: I'm hearing that the price of these puppies in America is actually close to the MSRP. Wouldn't be surprised if they sold out very quickly. You see people? Competition makes companies like NVIDIA offer better performance at a competitive price. Reap the rewards and shower in the beauty that is of PC gaming.

There's only one single benchmark online so far, and it's from a Chinese website. Not the most reputable website ever but it looks legitimate since it has several photos of the GTX 1060 itself with the internal PCB in all its glory.

The gtx 1060 will be a flop as it will be very expensive like 350$ and not comparable to a rx 480

So the NDA drops today, but does that mean it will also be released today or tomorrow?

That's AUD and not USD.

 

If you take both in AUD the rx 480 4GB is 319 and the 8GB is 379.

the 8GB is in stock btw :P

 

So it's about a 120 AUD difference for apparantly not that much.

Or if you compare it to the 4GB it's 180, makes it even worse :P

 

So if you take performance and pricing from 1 source, it looks not very great for Nvidia but whatever.

I'm sure pricing will be sorted out eventually.

Considering that RX480 is on that same website for $319 ... $499 for GTX 1060 is steal! ;)

Perhaps. Looks to be about 350-400 euros for most European countries. The price gouging that plagued the earlier NVIDIA Pascal cards may be in effect.

I just can't wait to see the glorious EU prices. I am eating my own food if it is cheaper than €370.

(I never cooked anything so eating my own food may be either very dangerous, disgusting or it can be the best food ever made...who knows, I am Schrodinger chef).

The zotac single fan gtx 1060 is selling for the same price($400) as the rx 480(very near to $400). 

 

Asus, sapphire, powercolor i don't care which manufacturer it is, get us an AIB Rx 480 that matches 1060 performance please :(

I'm done with Nvidia for now. Going with an RX 480 or the 490 if the 490 isn't 2 480s.

Yeaaa i don't see the 1060 replacing the 960 price wise anytime soon.

You can get a 960 4GB for 200 euros in germany and knowing how tight some people are on a budget i think the rx 480 is still a winner in its price category.

 

Atm it looks like 980 performance for 970 prices which is a nice thing but imo probably not very good...

When the 980 launched performance between the 970 and 980 was quite similar but oh well.

 

Unless the 1 source that released benchmarks are in favour of AMD, i don't see the 1060 replacing the rx 480.
