    more or less the same as gtx950, with more modern architecture and 4g for 75w...
    it might be nice

    (as gtx950 already beat rx460 in most case the below 150Euro battle is already win)

    Should an equally clocked 950 perform similarly?
    *that 4GB VRAM just an icing on the cake, imo

    Does this based on a stripped down 1060 still?

    How would 950 pricing would fit in all of this? Another price cut(yaayy)?

    Would this ripple down further to 750Ti or even below? (double yaay)

    I demand answers :(

    Can anyone explain why there are two different shader count 1060s? One is 1280 cores, the other is 1152 cores.

    This makes NO sense only marketing bull**** again to trick people:

    1280 cores = GTX 1060
    1152 cores = GTX 1060
    768 cores = GTX 1050


    This is the way it should have been:

    1280 cores = GTX 1060
    1152 cores = GTX 1050
    768 cores = GTX 1040


    Then again this comes from the geniuses who replaced the old TITAN with a new card called TITAN, so when you see machines advertised with a TITAN card you have NO IDEA which one they are including... more marketing trickery?

    fabrication node needs correction. gp107 is at samsung 14nm lpp. That's why the lower clocks

    This thing will destroy the RX 460. And I honestly think it will do that with no problem.

    rx460 4GB can be found at 130Eur. Do you really think 1050 4GB will be found at that price? Probably not.

    How is it marketing? The GTX 1060 6GB has 1280 cores, and the 3GB variant GTX 1060 has 1152 cores, that's likely due to the way they've reduced the VRAM and believe it or not performance is barely impacted.

    Oh yes, me too, that 750Ti is getting real long in the tooth in my HTPC.

    GTX 1050 will be competing more with the RX 470 I think. Pricing will be interesting.

    I expect awful pricing on this one too outside the USA, local store just got more than four hundred 950s a couple of weeks ago, and they have not reduced their price the slightest.
