Not bad and if you use quidco you might be eligiblable for the 10.00 offer plus 2 percent cash back bringing it down to around 225 delivered, the 10.00 offer is via a opt in, oddly enough though, I'm not eligible!

When 1060 cards from MSI, Zotec, ASUS, EVGA versions are retailing at £238.99. Why on earth would anyone choose to buy a Palit card??

That's ignoring the fact it's £1 more haha

I need a card to play my favourite arcade game phoenix. Is this a good cars for that?

must wait 2 weeks - get deal after holiday - can't cope with the stress

Was tempted to buy MSI Gaming X for £290. Not bothered about performance difference but anyone know if Palits are noisy fans?
Both stop completely when idle, so it would be on load.

The performance of these cards is brilliant and to be fair better than I was expecting, I thought it might have gtx970 performance and it actually performs more like the GTX980. Still the price is still a touch high for a card occupying this tier as in the last gen the GTX970 was this kind of price while the 960 was a fair bit cheaper. Though it performs excellently it's price is high for the budget side of midrange, which is surely the area this should be occupying as a successor to the 960...

They are not..... they are all £260+

Why cant these just be cheaper?!?

Didn't realise this was out, just looked at guru3d review. 134w for its performance is superb. How do AMD respond? Price cuts? This might just tempt me to upgrade my 750ti.

What's the 'dual' in reference to?

Dual fan, I would assume.

Two fans rather than one.

Ah.
Weird thing to promote; 'our HSF sux, so we made it generate twice as much noise'.

When you consider that people were paying $650 for a 980 Ti 14 months ago and that the $289 MSI 1060 Gaming X when over-clocked is within 1% of a stock 980 Ti with power consumption ~75W less it puts the stagnation in the CPU market into stark contrast.

When compared against a GTX 970 the gains aren't so great but they still are near 20% better in terms of performance, power and price and when was the last time a CPU offered all that at once?

Two slower moving fans are often quieter than one fast one for the same cooling.

Hmmmm, Sapphire RX 480 Nitro+ 4GB for £200 or a GTX 1060 for £240 - the reviews seem a little disappointing for the 1060, i'll be playing at 1440p and i'm not sure the extra 2GB will make any difference. I might play Doom with the Vulkan API and it's 32% quicker on the RX 480.... decisions, decisions....

Shame no sli
Don't blame them though. Wonder if some clever sod will find a way of enabling it.

I'm waiting to see how the aftermarket variants of the 8GB 480 move at all, running a 4K monitor and thinking long-term driver maturity still factor into my thinking for AMD. I don't really care about power draw as long as temperatures aren't insane. I'm hoping for a huge black friday sale basically, which is weird as it's a sale we shouldn't logically have. Great price though, perfect for a middle budget gaming pc!

The vulkan patch hasn't been released yet for nvidia has it? I imagine that gap will close significantly over time.

They respond with giving us hope in the shape of Vega... but mostly likely disappoint us again like they did with the R9 3xx and the RX 4xx.

Got the Gainward card (same company as Palit) today from Scan for £239. Seems OK. Fans don't spin at all until temp reaches 47oC or so. Scores over 13,000 graphics score in 3d mark firestorms. Bought it for folding in the winter to add heat to the room. Other cards are less efficient. Fans are very quiet when spinning at full load too. Case fans louder. GPU temp maxed at 73oC during fire strike. These cards hold their value nowadays so I expect it to stay around £200 for the next 2-3 years so not bad value. Hope Vulkan API works equally well for nvidia as AMD.

No thanks, not with the with the terrible stock cooler and power circuitry.

I doubt it, the interface physically doesn't exist.

You'll have able to use two in DX12 games that support that kind of thing though.

Care to give some links if they are not for the 1 fan mini versions?

Maybe he meant these 3 full size cards under £240?
overclockers.co.uk/pc-…t=3

The link works but you can't search for it on the ebuyer site find it on the GTX 1060 page. Is this likely to be pulled soon when ebuyer realises they can charge above the MSRP?

everyone needs to calm down and not buy any Nvidia cards for a month or two. The price would skydive.

The new line up is so overpriced and the 'founders' edition is an insult. Everyone, including nvidia knows it.
but who can blame them if people are going to rush out and buy them anyway.

Everyone just chill ya beans. Make nvidia sweat it for a while.

Yes let's hold a vote on a possible NVIDexit

Power draw related issues with the reference RX 480 have now been fixed with the latest driver update along with some small performance gains.

The blower style cooler lends itself more to small form factor ITX builds. So the refference cards are the best option there. The Fractal Design Node 202 is a good example of a case to use with that card (or a reference GTX 1060 for that matter).

Simply put, don't knock reference/blower style GPU's on the basis that they don't suit your own personal requirements.

The MSI is a full sized card but the others are all mini- 1 fan solutions that wont give you the same OC headroom as this card

obviously voiding warranty would this fit the asus g20 rog system?

​The repercussions would be felt for years to come.

Why anybody would even consider a 480 over this is a complete mystery to me.

Nope, as I said there are 3 full size cards with 2 having dual fans at under £240 and another 2 at £250 with dual fans.

The power draw issues haven't been 'fixed' as you suggest. They have been moved from the PCIe slot to the PCIe 6 pin.

The 6 pin, rated 75W, is pulling high 90s now.

The stock cooler is very hot and if you don't buy the 8GB, you might as well kiss the next gen games goodbye.

Compare the 4gb and the 3gb versions, not the 6 and 8...

Also, don't forget, each year, the 40 W difference will cost 3 quid per average hour you play.

So, if you play 3 hours a day, expect about 10 dollars a year, 2 years of power draw, that's 20 quid. Not completely insignificant.

Plus, tons more heat inside your case.

Sorry you got me there actually- the KFA2 is the same price as is the blower asus. I dont like blower cards personally but if blower cards are your thing the asus would be fine
