    Lack of SLI connectors on these 1060's is such a cynical move by Nvidia.

    I initially read the price as £199.99. Read the review, thought "That's great!" Went to overclockers and then was like... "Hold on a second". Gorram it! In the end, still don't understand the pricing.

    Nitro 4gb at £200 is a bargain, nitro 8gb at £250 is overpriced. Is the general consensus of most reviews that are out there. ( Crazy as that metric is)

    The stock 1060 still out performs it in dx11 whilst the nitro is faster in Vulkan and some dx12 benchmarks but not all.

    AOTS and Timespy are a tie, Hitman and tomb raider its ahead on hexus by a few fps.

    4gb is 5% slower for 20% less money. And funnily enough the 4gb 480 nitro still beats AMDs stock 8gb 480. As it can actually maintain a boost level.

    I agree. At £299.99 the price is a bit too high. For not that much more (around £60) you are in 1070 territory, and the extra buys a lot more card.

    In my country the RX 480 is same pirce as GTX 1060 even the overclocked cards so GTX 1060 here is the clear winner for my country.

    My thoughts exactly, I paid £270 for my MSI Gaming 970 nearly two years ago and there just isn't enough of a performance boost to justify either this or a 480. I think I'll stick to skipping a generation.

    Lovely silent cooler, but for the (near stock) performance it's way too pricey.
