Yes, Nvidia GTX1060 is faster than RX480

This year, AMD chose to introduce mid-end graphic card, RX480, allowing NVDIA to say that they have the fastest graphic cards. As a result, AMD made everyone happy by indicating that RX480 is as fast as GTX970 but costs only $200. It was a good news because not everyone is able to spend about thousand dollar to a single graphic card. However, the problem was that RX480’s test results were not as high as expected and it disappointed a lot of people but still, it was a good card for $200 and it had not competitor until last week. Recently, Nvidia dropped another bomb by introducing 1060 which is more power efficient 980 based on PASCAL that only costs $250.

The specs of the 1060 was amazing but thanks to AMD, I learned not to expect too much from the introductions. However, it looks like 1060 really is faster than RX480 anyway.

In a leaked test, you can see how RX480, 960 and 1060 do in different games. Even though this test proves that 1060 is better than RX480 in terms of gaming performance, still it would be better if the test also included 980.

Anyway, you can see the test results below.
