    Shame that the power consumption is out of spec - anyone remember nvidia making a big deal about the 480 power draw sometimes slightly overstepping the limits?

    That 480 has been silly cheap for a while now, but seems to have ended up with an abysmal cooler

    Although AMD have closed the gap on NVidia, the lower power draw and heat output of the 1060 makes the decision between 1060 vs 480 less clear cut.
    I don't have a desire for my study / gaming room to reach the temperatures of hell and energy isn't getting any cheaper.

    The lack of advancement by AMD has contributed to stagnation in the both CPU and GPU markets but the difficulty in going to ever smaller die sizes was always going to slow progress (Intel have suffered with this).

    That being said I'm glad we're past the nearly yearly updates required in the 90s and early 2000s. I'm still using a 2500k at stock with a 670 and 16Gb and it still copes with what I chuck at it.
    100W is nothing for heating a room, and you'd need to be gaming for 2400 hours to burn through £40 worth of extra electricity (going by the current price difference between the cheapest 580 and 1060 on scan right now, and assuming 16p/KWhr - an average from SSE's site). That's 100 days non-stop, with no food or sleep

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ Limited Edition

    Why would you compare two full size cards against the weird, mini 1060 card? Seems like an odd choice, especially as given it's size it'll be hotter and noisier than all of the normal size cards.

    @Xlucine: Power matters in small machines where that extra ~100w will translate to more noise and heat from the card and the PSU.
