I don't care if the 1060 is better on certain aspects, stop showing me the third card while I want to compare only two https://i.imgur.com/UgmonKV.png
480 8GB, almost same performance, more bang for the memory vs. ultra resolution settings, 20% less power used and you only lose about 5% performance, 480 is cheaper and more readily available.
rx 480 or rx 580? considering a good significant update for 580... just get a little bit confuse
I would. Buy I can't buy anymore because the price is steep.
I'm still wondering if there are people in this wonderful world who actually bought one of these cards for gaming and not for bitcoin
Dude, site is awasome. Do you have API or smth like that?
I made it. Problem?
Il better AMD Radeon RX 480 8g, not AMD Radeon RX 580 4g
it's automated by gpuboss program. just input new graphics card and it'll display results. no one in gpuboss, physically inputs these information.
who made this stuff?
