The Vagrant Seeker
The 1060 is still a decent card, it is cheaper than RX 480 and offers comparable framerates, but the actual point is, Nvidia tends to cripple their older cards, they have been doing it for a long time now, but AMD on the otherhand still adds driver updates and performance improvements over time, so in a long run, an RX 480 might be a better choice, depending upon price and availablity ofcourse
Plus free sync monitors are available for as cheap as 12k-13k
but if you already have a 1060, then there is literally no point selling it for a RX 480, the increase in perf does not justify the loss in value you get by selling and buying the new card..
i read the same thing y'day while browsing through pages (esp. about the driver support from AMD, with weekly frequency or so). however this led me to wondering that why then drivers are still available for geforce 5 series cards (i have the GTX 580 presently).
i havent still got the 1060, ie, not yet delivered. its a sealed box. so if i decide to sell it off for an RX480, i most probably stand the chance to recover the money i spent in buying the former. am still highly undecided on what to do.
