Graphical Settings Comparison - GTX 1060 VS RX 580
Today marks the first round of game testing where we have ditched our faithful RX 480 for AMD's newer RX 580 equivalent, offering a fairer AMD VS Nvidia comparison. Both Graphics cards are using each company's latest drivers on a system that uses an Intel i7 6850K at 4GHz.
What is clear below is that AMD's RX 580 offers a performance advantage over Nvidia's GTX 1060, though outside of the game's low settings the gameplay experience off both cards is nigh identical. In most cases, there is only a handful of frames in it, leaving users of AMD and Nvidia hardware in a great position.
The reason why out testing here is at 1440p is because Far Cry 5 is fairly easy to run on modern hardware, with both cards handling 1080p with 60+ FPS framerates at 1080p with ease at Ultra Settings. We needed to increase the game's resolution to 1440p to present our RX 580 and GTX 1060 GPUs with a proper challenge.
