For £10-£20 more I would have bought the 1050 - but it's never been available at that sort of price so not sure what you're trying to say?

£36 more for a 1050 (cheapest it's ever been) isn't so appealing.

Also, from what I've seen, if you are lucky enough to unlock the extra shaders on the 460, and add a small OC, it'll match or even beat out the 1050 in a number of DX12 based games, so value for money is potentially amazing (but still good regardless).

Sadly that doesn't mean much as there are so many revisions and variables to take into account. I can say for certain that it does NOT work for the card I received in this deal. Shame really.

And also for anyone thinking of trying this - make sure to check the product name/ID listed in the stock bios matches or is at least very similar to the unlocked bios as there are a number of reports of soft bricking with this card.

480 IS superior to 1050 even with their "**** drivers" (otherwise nobody would ever buy rx480 for 220+ pounds if 1050 (which costs around 140-150) was even near it.

You can make paragons with 1060, and yes, in the beginning 1060 was outperforming rx480 by 5% more or less, but after recent driver updates they are on the same level.
