Given 1060 6gb running around ~RM750 right now, is it worth to buy 1660 with ~15% increase in performance? Mainly for 1080p 60fps.
That is the problem. What do you feel about your money's worth?
Over the next 12 years, to maintain 60+ fps for 1080p, you might opt for
1. Buying GPU worth RM800 every 2 years => RM800 x 6 = 4800
Example: GTX 1050 Ti (when it first came out)
2. Buying GPU worth RM 1100 every 3 years => RM1100 x 4 = 4400
Example: GTX 1060 6Gb (when it first came out)
3. Buying GPU worth 1600 every 4 years => RM1600 x 3 = 4800
Example: GTX 1070 (when it first came out)
However it is hard to predict the tech development in the future... or other influencing factors like the crypto market
Many tech influencers say:
If you need a card now, get the best you can afford and match your rig (no point buying RTX 2080 if using i5-3570)
If you already have something you can use decently for now, just wait till you really need to upgrade.This post has been edited by mbr: Mar 15 2019, 05:19 PM
