Questions and Answers

  • Question: So I wounder if I should stick with my r9 290x or get myself a new gtx 1060. Is there any significant increase in performance, how's dx12 and should I wait another year to see how dx12 and new games work for amd and nvidia. If there is any comparison benchmark I would like to see it as well.

    Answer: It's about a 12-15% difference. The DirectX 12 picture is too early to tell, but overall Pascal cards do very well. You'd be going from one of the all-time power hog heat generators to a super efficient next-gen architecture. And your Nvidia-leaning games list will definitely show some appreciation.
