Prey benchmarked: Radeon RX 580 vs. GeForce GTX 1060

By: Anthony Garreffa | AMD Radeon GPU in Video Cards | Posted: May 25, 2017 9:13 pm

I thought I'd provide both of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards, with the official GTX 1060 Founders Edition 6GB of GDDR5 @ 8Gbps and MSI's overclocked GTX 1060 Gaming+ with its 6GB of GDDR5 @ 9Gbps.


The new GTX 1060 9Gbps model is the card that NVIDIA has pitted against the Radeon RX 580, and in most games it provides a nice bump in performance over the stock GeForce GTX 1060 Founders Edition from NVIDIA.

SAPPHIRE provides the chops for 120FPS+ average in Prey on the Very High preset at 1080p, beating out the GTX 1060 FE.




But when the overclocked GTX 1060 from MSI with 9Gbps GDDR5 hits the benchmark chart, the RX 580 loses by 6FPS.
