yeah the games that you can use DX 12 and Vulkan my wife's 460 is showing decent gains vs dx 11/open gl, I hope to stay team red as well, was checking this as I saw a price drop on the 1050 and honestly the only reason I prefer still the 460 even at near price is Freesync vs Gsync price on monitors :p people tend to forget that or go for standard monitors.
18% is the most I've seen. But RX 460 is 10%-20% cheaper depending on a model. You get what you pay for. I'm staying on team Red coz I believe in DX 12 and Vulkan their cards will perform better over time.
1050 beats 460 by 20% FPS in benchmarks in some games.
This will be an interesting face-off.
2gb and low watt class .. still curious who is better ._.
