What an amazing time we live in when we can buy a GPU with a similar performance as a 2 year old GPU (970) for about the same cost!

Good. SLI on mid series cards is just a bad idea.

You can overclock a 970 to match 1060 performance. But it's a piece of cake to overclock 1060 too and there, 970 can't keep up. Plus you get an extra two gigs of RAM.

Oh yeah, and the value of UK money has collapsed in the meantime. The real comparison here is in USD, where GTX 970 launched at $330 and GTX 1060 is $249 with extra performance and more RAM.

I'm sure there's others else where. But it all depends on what you want/what's important to you. Some buy for looks, some buy for warranty, some buy for clock speeds, others are brand loyal. What's your poison ?

Clock speeds are all the same, its just a silicon lottery, buying a pre 'OC' card this generation over the same version but stock is meh, due to GPU boost and the way the cards clock anyway etc. Even coolers come down to a few degrees difference between coolers (stock fan curves) and fans are pretty much all quiet on the 10 series cards.

1060 its pretty much do you want a small or a big cooler.

Whats the advantage to getting highly binned AIBs with either the rx480 or gtx 1060, will it give you better chance of OCing or not?

Honestly I can't tell you, you would have to find out the specific criteria the companies are binning on and what companies are doing binning. Usually achieving the clock they want, whilst fulfilling the tempature and voltage targets. So you are more likely to get a better OC from a binned chip I suppose in that sense.

You are better looking for first hand experiences with the exact model you want. All i can say is I have a Palit Game Rock 1070 and I have clocked it past the GameRock Premium Edition without effort, Though maybe I am lucky.

GTX 1060 is generally faster in DX11, RX 480 is generally the same or faster in DX12 (just don't mention Tomb Raider).

Both are great products - just don't buy a reference RX 480, ie one that looks like this: http://cdn.wccftech.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/AMD-Ellesmere-RX-480.jpg

Depends on the games you play. Reviews generally favour 1060 for dx11 games and older and 480 for DX12 games and vulcan

If Vulkan doesn't pick up and 1060 is cheaper then just buy it.

But when I go to ebuyer and search for one even though its made by other companies, it looks just like that.

Well im sure the 970 has already reached its peak performance and in the next 2-3 it will be the new 750ti.

Yes, that is a reference board supplied by AMD to MSI. I wouldn't recommend it.

I got my 970 for under £250 new 2 years ago, is it really too much to expect the latest GPU's to be quite a bit faster than a 2 year old GPU? So it's got more ram, big deal, I play Doom @ 1080p and it looks amazing, can't see how a extra 2GB on cards at this level (1080p) will make that much difference.

Personally If I upgrade I wouldn't go lower than a 1070 and wouldn't pay more than £350 and I'd only do that if I could get a 1440p GSync IPS monitor with no quality control issues for under £500 (which I can't!)

Looks like I'll be keeping my 970 and gaming at 1080p for a while longer!

Can't speak for any of the other cards, but the G1 version runs GTA V on max settings @ 1440 no problem. Not even attempted to overclock it yet either, and it's silent. Such a massive upgrade from my overclocked 960 SSC.

They fixed that yes but no dvi, that's a deal breaker for me and it's noisy and runs hot, no over clocking.

for an extra few quids you get a model with a custom cooler. Cold from me.

I know this question has been asked loads of times before but is it better to buy a single GTX 1060 now and add another later when Directx 12 multi GPU games become more of the norm or pay the extra for a GTX 1070 ?

I don't mean SLI as there's no connection for it but Multi-display Adapter or Linked Display Adapter. Pretty sure that will be the way these games will be heading.

Great price, it's with the extra money and time to get the 1070 though, it will have serious performance gains over the 1060.

I always found the "60" card in each range was always the bare minimum you'd want for gaming.

Still a great price, so heat from me! nice!

I prefer the 1060 to the 480, esp for htpc use. Lower power, less heat and supports moonlight streaming to my android phone / 3d headset via trinus. It's crap on AMD due to lag.

But you are comparing cards from different tiers? And two years ago the great unwashed hadn't voted for Brexit.I can tell you the £ has collapsed since then. After the initial inflated prices( would usually be expected to drop) there is little chance of that now...

There is no real xx70 tier card anymore. The 1070 is that in name only. The price never reflected the xx70 slot in the lineup. Look at the huge price gap between the 1060 and 1070.
Maybe they want to slot a 1060ti in there?
