    Just pre-ordered the MSI GTX 1060 OC from OcUK. It came just under my "I ain't paying above £250 for that!" limit. Looking forward to hooking it up to the Asus ROG PQ278G for some G-Sync loveliness :)

    Hope it arrives according to the ETA. I'm away for a couple of weeks so timing could be perfect for my return :)

    How are these comparing to the 980 ti? Just bought a secondhand 980 ti yesterday and starting to wonder if I made the right choice.

    The reviews I've seen so far suggest it's not close to a 980Ti in terms of performance, so I think you're safe :)

    A 980ti should destroy it, especially if it's a reasonable clocker.

    980ti is 25-35% faster in most things, with exceptions.

    Asus messed up TURBO pricing, but this time in a good way, gotta say this card seems the pick of the bunch when it comes value to money, but hey before you go buying I have no ETA from Asus at present for delivery !!!!

    That just looks like a slightly different reference model, what are the benefits?

    Stock vs stock is a fairer test.

    Cool thanks for the reassurance. Paid £280 for the 980ti so feel like i've got a good deal.

    I'm sure the answer is "yes" but I've not been able to find this anywhere as a definite for the 1060 and it's not listed as a feature on the specs page on Nvidia's site.

    The 1060 supports HDR, correct?

    Is it true that the Founders Editions Turbo Boost is neutered?

    You certainly did, that post is misleading, so are TPU doing that, its the most extreme example, all Maxwell cards do especially bad compared with Pascal in that ancient game, its obvious they deliberately picked that obsolete game to exaggerate the agenda. it doesn't take a lot for a card that is normally al lot slower than that compared with the 980TI to catch it.

    No doubt it was in those sent out Nvidia reviewers instructions on how they should review the card.

    Really? I meant does it translate to better thermal/acoustic performance.
