AMD R9 Fury vs. NVIDIA GTX 1060

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm deciding on picking up a new graphics card for my personal build and am currently undecided on which to go with Specifically I'm looking at the Radeon R9 Fury from Newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202186&cm_re=r9_fury-_-14-202-186-_-Product, goes for about $309 or $290 on Amazon. As for the GTX 1060, Im looking at this one by ASUS for about the same price http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814126122&cm_re=gtx_1060-_-14-126-122-_-Product. I've heard that in terms of performance the R9 Fury easily beats the 1060 but how does it fair against the newer RX 480? Also, my monitor does support freesync so would it be worth going with the R9 Fury for the benefit of freesync?

So do you think the card at $290 is a good deal?

Considering the GTX 1060 beats out the RX 480 for the most part, the Fury is considerably stronger than the RX 480.

 

So with that said, I'd grab the Fury to go with that Freesync monitor.

Fury is also water cooled if I remember correctly. I think the R9 390x is better though. 

You do not remember correctly.

There are watercooled Furys, but that's the Fury X that's mainly watercooled.

Thanks guys, hopefully the card comes in this week. Cant wait to start gaming with it. Especially considering that my old card is a GTX 750 Ti. Been a long run with this baby but its time to let it go. :(

Personally, I'd probably get the RX480 if I had to have a card right now.  The Fury is (in every way) a faster card than both the GTX1060 and the RX480 though, I still wouldn't invest that much into that card.

 

The RX480 can be had for $250 and will do your monitor justice just fine.

 

But if you can wait 2-3 months I expect Vega to be out, and at the $350 price point you might be able to get a "RX490" something or another.


Please spend as much time writing your question, as you want me to spend responding to it.  Take some time, and explain your issue, please!

Great deal for that Fury Nitro especially since you already have a Freesync monitor though 1080p is not really an ideal resolution for the card, don't know if you can activate Freesync alongside VSR.
