    So are AIB GTX1060 cards available to buy tomorrow because if Nvidia have done so it will really make AMD look daft IMHO.

    So i'm interested in this 1060, but will there be blower type designs without the FE price tag?

    Looking at the EVGA mini 1060 which looks great, but not sure if the top fan style casement would have good enough airflow in my case.

    Currently have a 660ti blower type in a mATX case, there is about a 3 inch gap from the top of the card to the case so am unsure whether that would be good enough airflow for the top fan type designs.

    Given how efficient it'll be, I would be surprised of the contrary.

    Was expecting a better timespy score, my 970 is hitting that.

    1266 base turbo clock to 1350 turbo = 6.6%

    [Ironic that you have to undervolt to achieve this]

    Or you can have it your way:

    1120 "base clock" (with 1266 boost) to 1120 (with 1350 boost) = 0% overclock over the base clock.

    Looking forward to seeing how these cards perform. It will certainly be interesting seeing how they compare to the RX 480 in terms of performance and power.

    That is roughly what my 980 gaming gets (out of the box, no overclocking). Considering that Pascal does get better scores with a sync/dx12 does that mean the 1060 will be slightly slower than the 980 in dx11 and around the same in dx12?

    This is sort of what I expected considering the core count and bus etc.

    Looks like they are going to be a more efficient, possibly slightly faster alternative to the RX480.

    Will you be doing a review Greg or was the 480 a one off?

    It's quite clear this will be a bit of a beefier 970 (just like the 480 -> 390/x). The 980 performance rumours were just the usual early hopes of "they're gonna sell a ferrari for 10 quid! Wooho!"

    I can't see it taking the world by storm based on what we know. I'd imagine they're trying to push as many people as possible into 1070 land.

    480 was a one off. Got my money back and placed that in my comp funds account and will be looking at Vega and the 1080Ti. Hopefully performance on those is close for some good comparison vids.
