Did you take into account that they may be using reference specs? CLOCK SPEEDS (BOOST / BASE) 1206 / 926 MHz MEMORY CLOCK SPEED (MHZ) 1650
Okay first of all the actual Core Clock Speed of a XFX RX 470 is 1236MHz, Memory Clock is 1750MHz, get your facts right! This is seriously frustrating needless to say. Here are the actual SPECS of my XFX RX 470! The 4GB model!
rx-460 is like gtx 750ti. if you want video editing, get gtx 1050ti 4gb at least.
I like how intellectually dishonest this comparison is. Use an Rx470 Aftermarket with 8GB Vram, which is still cheaper than the fucking 6gbvram 1060 aftermarket.
How is RX 460 4GB for video editing with Cyberlink PowerDirector 15? My system will be: AMD FX 8320e 16GB DDR3 1866MHz RAM 250gb Samsung EVO 750 1tb HDD RX 460 or RX 470 I need your opinion.
haha,nice try...nv-idiot only can wrote that nvidia 1060 is better then amd rx 480! what a idiot.. nv1050 rx460 nv1050ti rx470 1060 rx480 nv1070 ...vega?? nv1080 vega2? new nvidia.. ok,diff between rx 470 and nv 1060 depends of model , there is models with 3GB and 6GB from nvidia,and there is models with 4GB and 8GB from AMD...even knowing this i will rather take amd rx470 8GB then nvidia 1060 3GB.....or i will rather take nvidia 1060 wtih 6GB ram then amd rx with 4GB it? not fanboy here,neither idiot! read agai,yes i give slight advance to nv1060 when comparing to amd rx 470...but that can be changed with drivers,and depends of application or game..there is good chance that amd rx 470 will be better then nv1060,but that really depends..maybe in dx12..not fanboy here,neither idiot! Maybe already are better..maybe will be,but any way diff is tight..
Rx470 have 8GB model too. And Rx470 have much better peformance
nvidia gtx 1060 even 3gb is better then even rx 480.....rx 480 wins at directx with just 5-8 fps at MAXIMUM....real benchmark did by me,im not gonna explain myself how i did this or post pics,do ur own research!
rx 470 4GB vs 1060 6GB, not true.
buy one and say to we
Guys, what about durability? I see that nVidia has more overclocked speed. WIll it affect durability?
