The 390x is a bit better.

Also has more Asynchronous Compute Engines ;(

Got this for £210 from Overclockers a few weeks ago and I'm very happy with it.

When you add it to basket, look in the basket and it tells you the stock level.

Note: Sometimes it's not reliable because they don't update it correctly.

The 1060 has a slight edge in older games. All the latest games will be running on this better though.

put your peckers away gentlemen please...

anyway can confirm this stock is real as mine is being dispatched as we speak, as confirmed by their online CS agent, just had to make sure after the Scan, OCUK debacles.

These were hot at £170 last month, but at £200? May as well spend the extra £30 on a 6GB 1060 - far less power usage, broader support (SteamOS, Linux, less CPU dependence), and a better performer.

Surely that depends on the game?
In the new Deus Ex, even the 470 beats the 1060. Nvidia since at least Kepler (and Ferni I guess if we consider the 1.5GB GTX 580) have aged poorly.
Of course, the past does not predict the future (and a lot of the poor ageing was due to less VRAM, although in the case of Kepler the poor compute performance didn't help). But with AMD in both the consoles, games will continue to design for GCN and those PC ports tend to run well on Radeon cards unless sabotaged by Nvidia's Gameworks binary blobs.

That's the AMD-sponsored game that released less than 48 hours ago with a wealth of technical issues, isn't it..? (And the benchmarks I saw showed the 1060 ahead of the 470 at higher quality settings - so, at the risk of pointing out your comment's hypocrisy, "surely that depends on the settings?" ;))

But I do apologise for keeping my original comment so brief. Perhaps I should have been clearer: out of over 10,000 games available, the 480 outperforms the 1060 in, what is it now? Five games? (Assuming a high-end CPU and Windows, of course!)

I'll think you will find the core of Vulkan is that failed experiment, Mantle, that was in loads of games, wasn't it :D

end of the day Nvidia have a huge market share and devs will have no choice but to cater for that.

I pre ordered with scan to begin with, was made promises I would be next. 3 weeks went past with 3 emails being told my order is important.
Had a chat with someone on facebook that said he ordered 2 days before me and got his 2 weeks before.
The last promise from Scan of a schedule of stock to be in came and past without an update email telling me they didn't get any on that day so I asked for a refund as I saw Overclockers had some in stock and got it dispatched 2 days later.
Will never use Scan again, even after being told I'd get a refund had to email them again asking for it a week later which they payed by paypal automatically.

hate to agree with muffins but he's technically got you here, start with lowest possible outcome and scale up to better equipment is the route most devs will take. Make a game that runs on consoles, most PC will easily run the equivilant

Ahh, you are conveniently forgetting that the console APU is very dissimilar to the 400/300 cards.

The PS4 uses GCN 1.1 (gen 2).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphics_Core_Next#second

If you truly believe that development is done for 7 year old tech and then ported to current tech, you may be in for a surprise.

You may also be in for a surprise if you actually think game companies do heavy optimization on x86 architecture.

Hint, this isn't the PS3, x86 is very mature and there is very little specific optimization done.

Well, actually Hawaii (290/390) is pretty similar to Bonaire (7790 etc). And a lot of console ports do show this especially with low-level APIs where Hawaii has aged really well.

For future games, the question is what PS4Neo (PS4 v1.5) will use. Current rumours are it will be some kind of Polaris based GPU but that might make it hard to guarantee backward compatibility with the current PS4. Another possibility is to keep the current PS4 APU and add a 2nd GPU. Previous rumours said that neither Microsoft or Sony were willing to pay to port their respective APUs to 16/14nm but the new XBoneOne S (and possible the new PS4 Slim) show that at least Microsoft were willing to pay. So it possible that PS4Neo could have a 16nm version of the PS4 APU plus an extra GPU. Would be strange for developers but might ensure better Crossfire support for new games.

Microsoft's XboneOne v1.5 aka 'Project Scorpio' is still far enough way that it could conceivable use some kind of Vega rather than Polaris.

Of course, just because the consoles use AMD GPUs does not mean all games will perform better with AMD GPUs. The console version of Rise Of The Tombraider would have had async compute but due to sponsorship the PC version did not at release. When it comes to sponsorship, Nvidia do have way deeper pockets...

I think you'll find GCN is much more future proof than that nvidia shill ****.

Ah. Well it's not that bad, but really FinFet cards from both sides are overpriced. Guess there is a shortage of all (AMD's 460, 470, 480, and Nvidia's 1060, 1070, 180, Titan X Pascal) so there's no pressure to reduce prices but perf/price hasn't really moved like was the norm for node changes in the past.
The reference 4GB 480 were initially £170 or so and all of them actually had 8GB on board so with a BIOS update they were good value. Reference cooler is never that good though unless you have a case where you need the heat to go out quickly. Anyway 'were' so without a timemachine...
