We finally have some very important DX12 benchmarks for the GTX 1060 6GB (presumably reference) card. VideoCardz ran some DX12 benchmarks using Ashes of the Singularity, and the results are pretty impressive with this budget GPU, especially compared to the RX480, things are mighty close! Check out the images below for the benchmarks.

If you compare these directly to the RX480’s performance you can see they’re quite close, across all the resolutions as well! Check out the RX480 performance below provided by gbwang78 on the Ashes of the Singularity website.

As you can see, the RX480 just barely edges out the 1060 in all of the different resolutions, but generally not by anymore than 1 FPS, so this shows just how close the cards are in performance. But of course one game doesn’t show the overall real performance of a card, I’m sure there will be times where the 1060 beats the RX480. And remember, these are all DX12 benchmarks, so there is certainly more work on the driver end of things for companies to improve upon, we could see some pretty big FPS jumps in the future.

All I can conclude for sure is the budget market for cards is going to be very very competitive this time around, this all depends on how NVidia decides to price their 1060 though, some rumors are going around that it may only be $149 to start, which would make it the clear price to performance winner over the RX480. Either way, it’s good to see AMD is getting back into the game, at least somewhat.
