Do You Recommend Rx 570 4Gb Over A Gtx 1060 3Gb?

  -  

Today we’re revisiting a mid-range GPU battle between the Radeon RX 570 4GB and GeForce GTX 1060 3GB. It’s been a little over a year since we compared these two head khổng lồ head in an extensive 28 game battle, so we thought it was about time khổng lồ take another look now that GPU prices seem khổng lồ be coming baông chồng down to lớn more reasonable prices.

Since the original comparison we’ve sầu received multiple driver and game updates as well as quite a few new games which we’ve added to lớn the benchmark list. Of the 27 games we"ll be testing, just half a dozen of them were featured in last year"s battle.

Last time the Radeon RX 570 was a mere 2% slower on average, so a very even fight. Currently the RX 570 costs ~$10 more than the 3GB version of the GTX 1060 -- even though its reference cost is $170, while the GTX 1060 should be about $200. Today though the 1060 starts at $230 while the 570 starts at $240, so like all graphics cards they were better priced a year ago.

Representing the green team is the MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 3G and for the red team the MSI Radeon RX 570 Gaming X 4G. Although both models are pretty heavily overclocked out of the box, we’re still going to squeeze every last bit of performance from them with a custom overclock.w

Stoông chồng the RX 570 Gaming X comes clocked at 1281 MHz for the core & 1750 MHz for the GDDR5 memory. We were only able lớn increase the core cloông xã to lớn 1435 MHz, a 12% core overclock và the memory to lớn 1900 MHz, a 9% overcloông xã.

As for the GTX 1060 Gaming X 3G, it comes with a base core clochồng of 1569 MHz for & 2002 MHz for the GDDR5 memory. We were able to hit 1770 MHz for the core and this resulted in a boost frequency of about 2150 MHz depending on load. The memory also reached 2275 MHz, so a 13% core overcloông xã và a 14% memory overclochồng.

As mentioned earlier we have 27 games in total, all of which have been tested at 1080p using both the stochồng and overclocked configurations. As usual our Corsair GPU demo rig built in the Crystal Series 570X has been used and inside we have an i7-8700K clocked at 5 GHz with 32GB of DDR4-3200 memory. We realize this hardware configuration is overkill for these GPUs, but the idea here is khổng lồ remove sầu any potential system bottlenecks that might mask GPU throughput. Now let’s get to the good stuff…


Benchmarks

*

First up we have sầu the Battlefield 1 results & here the GTX 1060 was 6% faster out of the box and 11% faster once overclocked. So a clear win here for Nvidia but it has lớn be said the RX 570 still puts on a show, delivering well over 60 fps at 1080p using the maximum in-game chất lượng settings.

*

Unfortunately Nvidia still hasn’t addressed their underwhelming Wreckfest performance, allowing AMD lớn rear over them in brutal fashion as the RX 570 provides up khổng lồ 47% more performance. More critically the RX 560 averaged 60 fps out of the box, whereas the GTX 1060 3GB struggled to break the 40 fps barrier.

*

Tom Clancy"s Rainbow Six Siege is another title that really favours the red team, here the RX 570 beat the GTX 1060 by a 36% margin out of the box though Nvidia was able to reduce that lớn a 27% margin in favour of the RX 570 once both GPUs were overclocked.

*

Although Far Cry 5 is an AMD sponsored title we saw little lớn no bias upon release, both Radeon and GeForce GPUs performed as expected. Here we see the GTX 1060 3GB is slightly faster than the RX 570 out of the box và 11% faster once overclocked.

*

Fortnite is built upon the Unreal Engine 4 và therefore has a natural tendency khổng lồ favour hardware from the green team. Here we see the GTX 1060 providing 15% more performance stock & 17% more once overclocked. Still it’s worth keeping in mind that we are using the maximum in game quality settings at 1080p & still seeing well over 60 fps at all times using the RX 570.


*

Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia is a newly released title that plays well on both AMD & Nvidia hardware. That said the GTX 1060 3GB has a reasonable performance advantage as it provided 11% more frames out of the box and 16% more once overclocked. Still there was no shortage of frames at 1080p using either GPU.

*

AMD’s ARMA 3 performance has improved out of sight in the past year và although the RX 570 was slower than the GTX 1060 3GB, it was only 7% slower out of the box và provided well over 60 fps at all times.

*

The last game we’re going to look at is Warhammer Vermintide 2 and this is another title that plays nicely with AMD hardware. Here the RX 570 spat out 70 fps on average out of the box và that made it 13% faster than the GTX 1060 3GB.

When it comes khổng lồ power consumption the RX 570 does suông chồng down a little more than the GTX 1060. It’s at a disadvantage here being that the die is 16% larger so not that surprising we see a 19% increase in total system consumption. Still even when overclocked we’re only seeing a system consumption of 332 watts and that includes a Vi xử lý Core i7-8700K clocked at 5 GHz, so with a lower kết thúc CPU it’s unlikely you’ll see total system consumption climb above 300 watts.

Summary

Now let’s get the full picture by looking at the results across all 27 games. Stoông chồng out of the box the GTX 1060 3GB was on average 4% faster than the RX 570. Not a big margin, but it has grown by a few percent since we last compared the two, so the 3GB 1060 is still kicking along okay at 1080p.

*

The 1060 enjoyed solid wins in GTA V, Warhammer II, Assassin’s Creed Origins và Battlefront II. It was less impressive sầu when testing with Wreckfest and Rainbow Six Siege.

*

Then with both graphics cards overclocked the GTX 1060 3GB extended its lead out to lớn 8% and was now able khổng lồ deliver considerably more performance in 6 of the titles tested, providing 20% more frames. Loses in titles such as Wreckfest và Rainbow Six Siege were also reduced. So if you plan on manually overclocking your graphics thẻ the GTX 1060 is very attractive sầu & because it consumes less power it also runs a little cooler as well, though temperatures will vary quite a bit from one model to lớn the next so we won’t go inlớn that data here.

Closing Thoughts

So which one of these GPUs should you buy? Depending on the games you play, one Mã Sản Phẩm might be a better choice than the other. Overall though the experience was very similar in almost every title tested. Last time I said there was no right or wrong choice here, they’re just too cthua trận khổng lồ Hotline it, so get whichever is less expensive.

*

Having said all that, I personally gravitate towards the GTX 1060 3GB for a few reasons. Although I’m not happy about the 3GB naming -- it’s not merely a GTX 1060 6GB with half the memory, it’s missing an SM unit taking the CUDA core count from 1280 down lớn 1152 -- so in spite of having the same name, it actually features 10% fewer cores. But that doesn’t change the fact that the 3GB 1060 is actually still a really good value hàng hóa.

Right now the GeForce is also slightly cheaper than the RX 570 while offering slightly better performance. So if I had a little over $200 khổng lồ spkết thúc on a graphics thẻ, that’s what I’d be getting right now.

If you can afford khổng lồ pony up the extra $50 or so for the fully fledged 6GB mã sản phẩm then by all means vày so, but at 1080p there’s no chance you’re going to see 20% more performance, so in terms of cost per frame the 3GB version offers much more value.

Finally, if you want lớn take advantage of adaptive sync technology on a budget, then the RX 570 makes more sense as FreeSync is more affordable, but the experience will vary from display khổng lồ display so make sure you bởi vì your retìm kiếm there.
