    AMD share holders are enjoying the short-mid term benefits from this mining crazyness but their "supossed" primary market (PC gaming) is shrinking even more than it was thought possible...

    ...And we all know what that means for PC gamers: less PC game devs interest in AMD specific performance optimizations (for PC) and even less competition in the PC gaming market.

    If we look at Steam hardware surveys and look at dedicated GPU sold last quarter we see the increases AMD GPU market share is not reflected in PC gaming rigs: It's exactly the contrary, less AMD GPUs are used for gaming on PC.

    Their base prices are lower because their performance is lower, and their power consumption is higher.

    That is not true, 580 was 10% slower than 1060, is now as fast if not faster....

    NVIDIA needs to OC out of the box (ignoring secs on the box, power consumption....) to stay ahead of AMD/Radeon.

    You just confirmed his point by saying the card launched 10% slower though, poor launch drivers are nearly always the reason AMD has to price things lower.

    Also, assuming you mean the 480 as the RX580 arrived nearly a year after the GTX1060.

    I think the point was about high end cards though, when it comes to mid-range like 480/1060 there (unless you cherry pick results) isn't much daylight between either card when it comes to performance or price.
