And?
And? Why is it cold?
its now at £186 but tbh that's a better price than has been on these cards, really at one up form the bottom of the range these should be nearer £140 anyway, nvidia cards get more expensive with each new range.
I guess Moores law said nothing about the price

Actually, Moore's Law only talked about the price. That is the cost of producing a chip with a certain amount of transistors:

The complexity for minimum component costs has increased at a rate of … The complexity for minimum component costs has increased at a rate of roughly a factor of two per year. Certainly over the short term this rate can be expected to continue, if not to increase. Over the longer term, the rate of increase is a bit more uncertain, although there is no reason to believe it will not remain nearly constant for at least 10 years.


That's from 1965. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moore%27s_law#History)

But anyway, the timespan has been slipping and even Intel now admit that it's closer 2.5 years, and physically past 7/5nm there is no clear path. However, slower and more expensive nodes have not stopped both Nvidia and Intel from having record profits.

Anyhow, the 3GB 1060 is a very poor card which can barely keep up with ultra settings now. The overpriced 6Gb version or the far more competitively priced Radeon RX480 8GB are a better investment.
Get an RX470 if you want i spend 150 or an RX480 for the same price as above from OCUK.

Both are better cards than the 1060 3GB.
