Where do you look for prices? At amazon.es you can get a RX580 8GB for €250, while you can't get any GTX 1060 6GB for less than €317.

this way rx 580 uses more power also runs hotter and at the top thing the rx 580 sucks gtx 1060 takes the win and also didnt mention the cheapest 3gb 1060 is 200 dollars the cheapest rx 580 is 270 dollars so thats a win for the 1060
well then your blind rx 580 uses more power also runs hotter and at the top thing the rx 580 sucks gtx 1060 takes the win and also didnt mention the cheapest 3gb 1060 is 200 dollars the cheapest rx 580 is 270 dollars so thats a win for the 1060 i know i copied it but i was too lazy to type it again

Right now you're paying twice as much for a 580 8GB as a 1060 6GB. And while the specs say one thing, actually gaming performance between these two cards depends more on which brand the game is optimized for more. If you look at videos with benchmarks from Gamersnexus, you'll see what I mean. They're trading blows game per game. Before the mining craze, I would've bought a 480 or 580 in a heartbeat. But once it started the prices of AMD cards were too high, and they were almost impossible to find. I sold my 380x on ebay, and it completely paid for my 1060 6GB, which was a 40% performance increase for me at zero cost. I like AMD, my next PC will be AMD, but at the moment it's just not priced right on the cards. I could actually get a 1080 for the price of a 580.
how does any 1060 beat a rx 580.... this is a joke
Bruh, rx 580 won literally every category, the hell you guys on?
so the 1060 is the better card okay
I like the shader quality of AMD better but NVIDIA has the performance
RX 580: wins in every category GPUboss: "and the winner is: GTX 1060 !!! "
How much did NVIDIA pay?
This is a case where they're pretty evenly matched and what will really make the decision is price and which brand you prefer.
What? I want to see in games, not in beanchmark´s
"Based on the Benchmarks" this site sucks.
What kinda review was this LOL. Back to Gamers Nexus
I know it!!
