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!!
