GTX 260-192 vs GTX 260-216 as well
Isn't that lower clock only on the RAM though, i.e the differentiation is the RAM both size and speed, whereas your common man would reasonably assume a particular model would retain the same base characteristics across the range.
Either way this is certainly a law suit in the waiting, it seems they've learnt nothing from the 970 litigation.
For those mouthing off about lawsuits: the specs are in the specsheet. You can't sue somebody for selling you exactly what they've advertised.
Neither can you claim that you thought the 1060 3GB was the same as the 1060 6GB because "they have the same number" and you didn't bother to actually check, in the same way you cannot claim that you thought a 6700 had the same clock speed as a 6700k because "they have the same number" and you didn't bother to actually check. You cannot sue someone for your own wilful ignorance.
They made a similar move with the 8800GT in 2008. I got the 256MB version and that was clocked lower by default than the 512MB model. Mine was overclocked by the board partner so it ran at the stock speeds of the 512MB version but many weren't.
Having said that, I doubt nVidia have anything to worry about - so long as the spec sheet is as advertised I doubt a lawsuit would stick.
You've not heard of America then.
Besides, arguably a 1060 3GB isn't going to be what's advertised as it's not going to be a 1060, it's going to be a 1055, it's going to have a lower spec core, an average consumer would probably assume the only difference between the two was the amount of RAM, that's unless the extra differences between the two are prominent at time of purchase.
It's worse I think when it comes to buying pre-built systems.
Incorrect, DF has a review of a custom MSI 470 tied with or beaten by the reference 4GB 480. OC the 470 and yea sure it'll start beating the 4GB 480, but then it also starts beating the 8GB 480 too. And there are custom 4GB 480s too.
Surely by nvidia's logic a 1070 core with 6gb could be called a 1080 6gb as it only has one less GPC than a 1080 8GB

If you are spending Â£200 on a card and don't look into it a tiny little bit you deserve to be fleeced. Myself personally I can't see the problem, it has taken me 30 seconds to discover the difference between the 1060 6gb and 1060 3gb, but maybe that's because i'm british.
Or maybe because you're not an average consumer.
