    This will probably reach 2.1ghz as well, if the price is around $250 I would say it's a steal. Problem is the sli support, this would've been ideal for sli

    No sli is a missed opportunity indeed. However, we know this is going to keep within spec, so, this will probably be the go-to card for the budget minded.

    How is SLI ideal of something in this range when all the problems that come with multi-GPU are still there and you'd be better off just putting down for a 1070 or whatever?

    and cheaper. not sure why i want to spend 5-600, when a 1080 will most likely soon be around that.

    SLI is still in rumor form. I heard 6GB version might have SLI (opposed to 3GB)

    The picture says otherwise, although, retail "might" have it. Let's see what today brings.

    Perhaps this one's SLI thing will be done through the PCIe bus?

    we don't know until it is released: remember when R9 290 was in picture without any crossfire... everyone was like "ho no the new AMD doesn't support no more crossfire" etc etc

    -SLI is still possible without port now that PCIe have more bandwith

    -if it exist on the 6gb it can also be added on 3gb (i remember when ASUS have been alowed to add SLI on Mars (and so quad 760) that Galaxy have released 760 with dual SLI port).

    unless we test it we don't have clue... only speculation :)

    I don't really see an issue with Nvidia dropping SLI support for lower tiered cards.

    2x 1060s is going to cost more than 1x 1070 and about the same as 1x 1080. 2x 1060s means more heat, more power needed. Ultimately to get similar performance to those single cards, when it works.

    If you are one of those "I may want to SLI in the future" consumers, when that future arrives, there will be a better, cheap single card option. There always is. I've been one of those consumers. So again, I'm not seeing the issue with Nvidia focusing on SLI for higher end only.


    As for the card, looks like a winner. Not sure why the RX480 is all the talk. That's a fine card, but it looks like this is even better in that same price range. Good news for gamers.

    Well, tbth, I only want GTX1060 to have Sli because RX480 has crossfire, otherwise wouldn't even bother me.

    It is just the picture of some GTX 1060. It is NOT the picture of GTX 1060 being tested.

    Another card, that from those benchmarks, looks disappointing to people that own r9 290 performance equivalent cards looking for a slight performance increase. I'll wait to see what AMD's high end offerings are, then probably buy a GTX 1070 anyway. Or any card with decent 1440p performance that has materialised by then.

    What makes you say that since people are saying the price is $250 so around 25% increase in price for 4% more performance and you thinks it's the death of the RX480? Granted you have overclocking to take into consideration but outside of factory overclocked cards only around 10% of the cards are manually overclocked by end users.

    $250 sounds cheap for an nvidia card.

    Well last gen 960 was 199$ when released. So it wouldn't be weird to have this for 250$.

    Plus the RX 480 non reference models have increased tdp, so either they perform better than review models, or they perform on par :giggle2: with them. There is hope left of that card to people who didn't think they were the 2nd coming of Christ.

    If this is accurate the graphics score is in line with the 980. This would be an awesome 1920x1080 card, but doubt you could push any more resolution than that with the 192bit bus.

    Ill point out the obvious... A lot of people who turn to sli for lower end cards can't afford tge 1070, they want to start with 1 gpu and maybe add a second one in the future.
