    It is capable but new games are definitely pushing it to it's max and I'm having to settle with lowering options to suit to maintain 60fps - I did get this card at a bargain price of £149 18 months ago with a view to upgrade later.

    Yeah.... definitely CPU problems GTAV takes a mix of options, some things max, most things high with others being medium (no extended options though), Diablo 3, well.... that's a typical blizzard game being **** with optimisation and being CPU intensive but I don't see why that can't be run on max. Crysis 3, understandable and Wow? Definitely CPU problems, like most MMO games but like you say, shouldn't be an issue if that 8320 is heavily oc'd.

    Either cpu intensive or single threaded games, FX sucks both ways. Even if a game can use 2 cores.

    Those are not cpu intensive games, also test done with nvidia gpu.

    Only Intruder shouldn't have these kind of problems with 4690k

    You'll love this, I'm at 4.2GHz on my cpu, 1.22v with the first edition Noctua NH-U12p ;)

    Good for you, I've got a crap chip, already at 1.25v for 4.3 with cache at 35 and VCCSA at 0.050v.

    About GTA V, that's definitely gpu, I can run it with mixed high-very high(mostly later), enb, 2xMsaa + injected Smaa, although it drops in heavy vegetation to 55-50.

    All I see here is R 300 models series.. :D



    Anyway
    I vote for that Fury too, was about to suggest nitro variant as well. Its really the coldest air cooled Fury atm.

    4gb 480 or Fury are your best options. Other is cheap with great performance other is more performance for bit more money.

    For a bit more? You can get a Radeon RX 480 Nitro+ 4096MB for £100 less than a Fury. I'd call that pretty substantial, I wouldn't personally pay that extra £100 for that sort of performance gain.

    I'm going 1060 on this one. Newer hardware, and if you can afford the price tag, then it's a better card. Fury would be okay but, again price/performance comes into mind.

    480 is fine for 1080p.

    I mean c'mon...8 gig on 1080p would be overkill.

    Most of those 480 issues have been resolved in a driver especially the pci-e power issue.

    But again, 1060 is more feature rich for what you pay for. The extras Nvidia gives is worth the extra few bucks imo.

    I would agree with Fury,but not with GTX1060,GTX1060 is not future proof card and never will be unless every game will be using GameWorks or their engine which I don't think will ever happen,if you think GTX1060 is future proof,then you are lying to yourself

    Nvidia have their issues too,not only AMD,agree they don't OC as Nvidia

    As future proof platform I would say is AMD,unless Nvidia GameWorks and CUDA, PhysX will be used in every game as most of games still and will be based on console ports


    Hope this helps

    Thanks,Jura

    When it comes to low level api's AMD with GCN cards are already being utilitsed as well as they can be, any improvement will be small at best.

    The Pascal cards are still a mess when it comes to that, but are still managing to compete in most of the DX12 applications due to brute force, they can only improve.

    The previous cards (290/390) lasted because of AMD improved DX11 drivers and then there was the introduction of low level api's, since that has already happened were is this extra performance coming from?

    480 is by far more future proof than a 1060. Pascal will not improve much, it will stagnate with dx12 and vulcan.

    People keep saying the 480 will improve, but how?

    wouldn't buy any nvidia cards, there lies put me off, 980TI is the last one, i remember when they advertise the 980TI, async was part of it and full support of dx12, it can do NONE of it, it fails hard, and pascal is just maxwell on steroids, plus nvidia failworks and all the shady tactics.

    Get 480 it will be more future proof.

    Looking at the last few gens how Tahiti and Hawaii left their nvidia counterparts behind people are expecting 480 to be more futureproof.

    It has an advantage in low lvl api's, it has more Vram, its a chip that will be in ps4 neo and xbox scorpio meaning more optimizing games for gcn hardware.

    Exactly, and that was because improved DX11 drivers and then DX12 let that hardware be used to to its full potential.

    Where is this extra performance going to come from this time?
