    Meh. The part I was most curious about is TBA. I want to know how big the die is on this thing.

    I honestly think the RX480 is the better purchase. The difference in DX11 is going slightly towards the 1060 obviously, but DX12 should lean pretty heavily towards the RX480. Sure you can probably clock the 1060 higher and make up some of that performance, but I don't think you will ever match it.

    Over the next year or so DX12 is probably going to take off and I think a lot of people with 1060's are going to be disappointed that they spent more money for less performance in newer titles.

    So, looking at £212 or €269 minimum at today's current exchange rates with added 20% VAT at the $249 MSRP

    It seem Hilbert already has one.

    Okay now the fishing for info.

    Can you comment on a few questions?

    Did that remove SLI on this card?
    Is it faster than the RX480 in DX12 (not including ashes as the 480 has more Gflops)?

    If both answers are yes just ban vase so you don't break your NDA.






    This is a joke guys don't get bent out of shape over it.

    I think you can look at rx 480 prices and add some. Of course for the reference model (FE) you can add quite a bit.

    Hmm are the prices for the 6GB version or 3GB??

    I'd think those are for the 6GB and the 3GB would hit around the $200 mark?

    Pricing is confusing. Is the $300 (really, it's $300, not $249) for what the 3gb will cost? Is the 6gb going to be what, $300 and then $350 for Founder's edition?

    I wonder what availability will be like.

    From what I gather no 3gb cards are coming? Or if that is 3gb for 250$ then damn what.

    Hi Hilbert,

    Could you clarify if nvidia are making a separate Founder Edition card? i.e. 3 or 4 different sku for the reference models and FE models or will it be like the 1080 where they say it's $250 but that's actually what the partners can sell their cheap models for.

    Valid questions. Let me dig that info up @ Nvidia.

    249 USD starts for the AIB partners I assume it's the 3GB models. There will be one reference/FE edition at 299. Currently I am waiting to hear back on memory configurations. However I am fairly certain that the FE versions all will get 6 GB.

    I'll update once I get some answer back from Nvidia.

    Yeah my thoughts too, it was just a quick and dirty calculation based on that minimum msrp after all but we all know that those prices are going to inflate substantially and if nVidia decide to be greedy, it'll be another fail mid end product (fail in terms of pricing that is).

    I'm not going to talk about overclocking capability because that's all just what ifs,buts, maybes and mights but rather, lets hope nVidia don't cock up on pricing again for this tier at the actual product launch.

    This card coupled with performance of 980 would be Coup de grâce to AMD 480.

    Update:

    Initial phase launch will only see 6GB models, which will sit at 249 USD for the AIB partners. The 6GB Founders Edition will sit at 299 USD.

    So I guess 8GB 256-bit memory bus Ti version or GTX 1065 is a possibility?

    It's also interesting that the ref PCB doesn't actually have PCI-E power connector directly. It has some kind of mini connector and it's wired to the cooler where the PCI-E power connector is.

    Them 3+1 power phases. Not sure if there will be such editions like Ti or 1065 time will tell :)

    @Hilbert

    Thank you for the info :)

    Litle bit expansive for its competition Rx 480.It should be equal or little less than rx 480.I think 48o win here
