  1. For that price difference go with the 480
  2. but if there wasnt no price difference you would go for gtx 1060?

  3. Stock RX480 outperforms 1060 even on DX11 titles right now with latest drivers. I think AMD are calling their GCN driver advancement "Finewine" technology. hardly a technology, they're just still figuring out how to make it go

    There really isn't much in it but better DX12 support, 2gb extra vram and also cheaper. It's a no brainier to me.

    it's like that: Some games are better optimized for AMD, other games are better optimized for NVIDIA
    at the same price it's a stalemate, difference is pretty close, in dx12/Vulcan the Rx480 is a bit better
    usually the 1060 is the better deal as all 1060s perform around the same while it pays to buy a more expensive Rx480

    that being said the MSI Gaming X is a really good Rx480 and if it's that much cheaper than a 1060 it's an absolute no brainer.
    if it was the other way around and the 1060 was 25$ cheaper it would be a tough choice, but like that...get the Rx480 before it's out of stock :D

  6. Rx 480 is now performs than the gtx 1060 nowadays and you also get crossfire and freesync so I would 100% go with the rx480 even if they were the same price
