ı use rx 470 and i5 6 generation = battlefield 1 87 FPS ultra
It's odd to see that the 960 performs as well as it does given the fact that there's as much of a difference between the 960 and 470 as there is between the 1080 and the 470 specs wise, but numbers can deceive. The price, which i think is were it is to promote 1060 sales, has never been acceptable for the 960. LOL the 970 is cheaper. The 960, a card from the twilight zone???
Got to take rx 470.
