hmm not bad as previous earlier 'leaks', vulkan perf was satisfying hopefully dx11 gets improved with drivers too. yet not impressive as they said.

All is good with AMD, except they didn't release enough cards that most people ended up buying 1060s, including myself.

I wouldn't regret buying a 1060 though. You can overclock those things really well. But the RX 480 is definitely more future proof though (Drivers, Async Compute, and higher VRAM).

Yeah saw this earlier and the funny thing is witcher 3 is a nvidia game and RX470 is beating 1060.

It's not regretting per say, but AMD must have lost lots of sales by not having enough cards in the market during the launch period. 1060 was launched much later, yet had aftermarket cards in no time.

This was a much needed fix because the CPU overhead for AMD drivers was always higher than Nvidia's. This should help close the gap with those DX11 titles, most of which is currently dominated by Nvidia cards.

Also, more good news - AMD is finally dropping the shitty gaming evolved client. Way to go AMD!

Is the lack of AMD cards on the market a global phenomenon or just Sri lankan?

Btw I got a GTX 1060 6GB as a gift from my wife and the card has maxed out every game I threw at it so far. And it never runs above 70C at load. With AMD's driver updates, 480 should be able to match 1060s performance. But there is no reason to regret or lose sleep if you got either card because both seem to be great cards with no major differences in performance.
