    if it's close to £300 and nvidia claims 980 performance, so that's going to be a best case scenario, lets not forget a overclocked 970 can get close or even beat a stock clocked 980 which released at £275 2 years ago, so we've waited 2 years for a card at the same price that will probably just match an overclocked 970 this is a massive fail. Tbh even at £250 this is a fail, this card NEEDS to be around £200 that'll never happen because 1. Nvidia are greedy ******** and 2. it will cannibalize the 1070 and 1080 sales.

    980 was released at around £475 ;)

    1060 is likely to be sub £300 for sure. Considering you can get a decent 1070 for £375.

    My guess is FE at around £250-275. AIB cards at £200-300 depending on models etc.

    But yeah 1060 will be around 980 perf. Overclocked it should do pretty well too.

    both 1070 and 1080 show what a 10-15% at best performance boost when overclocked :) I wasn't comparing it to the 980 matey but the 970 :) once overclocked it could match a 980 and that was a £275 so whilst yes the 1060 will be faster or as fast as a good overclocked 970 the argument is still there, we've waited 2 years for a card that can't beat or can just match a 2 year card overclocked that was launched at the same price all those 2 years ago. of course in till benchmarks come out I could be wrong but if this is the case then that's bad :/

    ffs :p, Ahh ok lol . Im hope to see £250 to be honest. I'm hoping less though.

    The rx480 is faster than a 970 and the 1060 is rumoured faster than rx480. So hopefully it should be 980 perf with it being almost 50% of a 1080, cores wise etc. If it overclocks 2ghz+ then it will be a nice card indeed.

    Guess will have to see tomorrow :).

    definitely!! if it can outpace a 980 when both are overclocked ( I hope so ) well then it would be a sweet little card even for 1440p 60hz :)

    Waits for *but but but its like 980 which was like £400+* excuses.

    Don't worry, the RX 480 thread has the same nonsense defence in it.

    Will there be custom AIB versions for sale tomorrow or is it just the Founders Edition being sold first again?

    The zotac custom one? TBH it looks like a decent one, and only £20 more than the sapphire 480.

    Same, £230 is the absolute max I will pay though for a card of this spec; ideally though it needs to be a little bit cheaper if its truly going to be the new budget card on the block.
