The RX 570 ended up delivering just a single extra frame on average at 1080p and surprisingly just two extra frames at 1440p. That said, the graph above includes the results for Resident Evil 7, but that title

If we include all the results this is what the overall picture looks like. As you can see it's pretty even across the board until you throw in the one game where the GTX 1060 3GB tanked. We didn't see any other situation where the RX 570 provided playable performance while the GTX 1060 3GB failed.

I'm keen to see just how much you have to downgrade the quality settings before the 1060 recovers but that will have to wait until after Computex.

For now, if we remove Resident Evil 7, the RX 570 actually ends up being 2% slower overall but to be fair the results are still quite even. The RX 570 was faster in 13 games and slower in 14 while the cards tied in a

single title. As we often find, there's no clear winner here and it simply boils down to the games you plan to play.

Each card has its strengths and weaknesses. The GTX 1060 3GB's greatest weakness is its the limited memory buffer, but to be fair this is rarely an issue at 1080p. As a brief tangent, the 3GB model was released almost a year ago and back then we heard how it was dead on arrival, even for those gaming at 1080p. Well, with the exception of one game, we have 28 examples

probably wondering what all the fuss was about.

The GTX 1060 offers considerably better power consumption, more overclocking headroom and cooler operating temperatures, while the RX 570 offers strong performance across the board with a slightly larger VRAM buffer that can help keep it out of trouble and the ability to be paired with a FreeSync monitor.

Which one would I go with? It would truly come down to which one was cheapest and again, the games that I intended on playing. That said, I feel like the RX 570 is the safer bet, but I also really like the low power consumption of the GTX 1060 3GB which generally allows for cooler and quieter board partner cards. These attributes may also make the GTX 1060 a better pairing for budget builds with lower quality power supplies.

Great article. I liked it. I dont always read these but was interested in the difference between these mainstream cards. I use a 1070 but its good to see where the 1060 3gb lies. Not a bad card for those using 1080p.

Im not AMD fan, probably never will be but the 570 n 580 seem good for those at 1080p. Even at 1440 for some games.

I find this review hard to swallow, I have experience with both sides and your numbers dont line up with mine. Overwatch for example, you are the first review site ive ever seen put an amd card ahead of nvidia at a given price point. Would you mind posting a video of your overwatch settings so we can see what you are doing differently from other reviewers.

Thanks.

A very interesting article and thanks for posting it. I really like what's going on with the red team on the benchmarks especially with DirectX 12 and I'm happy with the fact that AMD is giving Nvidia and Intel some competition but what good does it do when there is literally no RX 570 stock to be found

No mention of higher driver overhead onwith the AMD drivers. Re-run the test on a stock clocked Ryzen non X CPU and the 570 will drop across all games.

You can't go around showing people a 3GB card offering similar or better performance then a 4GB, you just can't. Think of the children! Now go re-run some future proof tests showing the AMD 470/570 is future proof damn it!

AMD's current drivers have lower CPU overhead compared to NVIDIA. I tested this personally a week ago (GTX 1060 6gb vs RX 580.) With the AMD card CPU utilization was nearly 10% lower while delivering basically the same performance.

Nice solid review.

As for those that have questions:

-- Those stating the RX 570 isn't in stock anywhere apparently aren't looking in the right places. PCPartPicker shows 10 different versions of the RX

-- As far as price vs. performance, we've been here before. When the GTX 1060 (6GB model) & RX

  • 480 first came out, the GTX card had slightly better

performance (~10%), but its MSRP was much higher (~25%). So as long as the RX 480 was at least 10% cheaper than the GTX 1060, you could safely buy it with the assurance that you were getting your money's worth. And now, we have the GTX 1060 (3GB model) providing ~2% more performance, but costing ~10% more -- the MSI GTX 1060 in the review running at $216.99 USD while the Gigabyte RX 570 Aorus model running at $196.99 USD

(https://pcpartpicker.com/products/video-

card/#c=378,392&

sort=price&m=18,27). So again, if you're looking for performance in a specific game, you can pick whichever card performs better, while being safe in the knowledge that (except for RE7) you're not losing performance or wasting your cash with either choice.

Agreed with most of what you said, especially that it was a good review.

Starbucks coffee though is not that expensive, averaging around $2.10 per cup.

Some people don't live and die by the price/performance ratio though. Even if you do dedicated shoppers can find a deal to get either card around the same price or can take an amazing deal on a specific card and save a ton of money. If price is your sole determination there will be an amazing deal if one waits for it. (For example I grabbed a MSI 6gb GTX 1060 Gaming X for slightly above $200 when RX 480 8GB were $230-250.)

In general if the difference in price isn't too big I would go for the RX 570. The option to buy a cheap Freesync monitor trumps anything else and the extra VRAM and async support are also a nice bonus since I don't usually upgrade the PC every year like some "enthusiasts" do.

I just bought an RX 580 and a 1060 tested both and chose 1. The 580 had noticeably lower cpu usage on my i7 2600k 4.4ghz. I chose the 1060 since performance was about the same, but the card is much smaller (evga ACX 2 1/2 size card.) Im going itx build soon once AM4 itx boards are actually available. Don't get me wrong I didn't expect it either but AMD's drivers are now superior to NVIDIA's as far as overhead is concerned.

Searched online. Turning off Shadow Cache helps the 1060 3GB with RE7. See url below for more info.

I have the same 6gb card (SC model) and a 2600k too ;) I recently bought a refurbished HP pre-built that came with a rx 480 and to my surprise the card was the same 6" itx size. I wonder why the partner companies wont make an itx sized rx card but HP/amd can?

I have GTA5 and I would love to get over 60 fps on maxed ultra. I have a fury x , paired with a 5930k i7, and 32gb ddr4. This makes me wonder what settings are not maxed out. The best I can get is about 45 to 50 fps sustained with a few things turned down.

Lowest grade? They have 5 or so varieties of regular coffee.

The espresso drinks like the lattes and cappuccinos are the ones that hover in the $4-5 range.

If you want a cup of regular coffee at Starbucks it's not that much more than other places.

Make sure your overclocked to around 4.5ghz and that your using 3000mhz+ RAM. GTA V shows huge improvements with that type of cpu power and memory speed. My 2600k at 4.7 with 2133 ram does very well.
