    45% more expensive than cheaper 1060s, and as little as 0% faster (1080p total war). Hmm let me think about that.

    I still think RX 480 is better buy. Its great FullHD card. GTX 1060 is a little better, but can't SLI. Once you have more money, you buy another RX 480 and get at least 50% more performance. Think septembre will be the month to buy.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    You can already pick up an 8GB 1070 Palit GameRock for just 50 quid more and I'll bet that's not the best offer out there either. Why would you bother with this card?

    Doom has been tested using OpenGL or Vulkan? Me think OpenGL...

    The only good thing about this card compared to the other 1060's is it has gpu boost 3 & this should be on all 1060's imo for us noobs to oc.

    You're delusional if you think you're going to get at least 50% more performance in every game.

    Way too expensive for this level of GPU. We need more competition.

    I'm seeing other 1070's fall below £400 as well. Same will happen elsewhere over the coming 6-8 weeks with dollar prices I suspect.

    Anyone who'd pay £330 for a 1060 needs to be repeatedly slapped whilst having 'WAKE UP' shouted at them until they get it.

    Really mis-representative to bench DOOM in openGL with the new cards (all the Pascals and RX480) as Vulkan offers increased performance for both AMD and Nvidia and it's a simple toggle to switch it on. Anyone can enable Vulkan mode (unlike DX12 that requires W10).

    I know you added a note Hexus to say you will be updating to openGL but it is too little too late tbh.

    True 1060s should cost no more than £175-200 if AMD could actually compete and Nvidia didn't keep raising their prices. The previous gen 960 was around £150 and now NV have effectively doubled this tier of card prices to £300 for the reference. What's worse is that this small-die GPU is likely very cheap for Nvidia to produce so they are making a huge chunk of profit on every card sold.
