Ok now we take a look at the GTX 1060 benchmark videos to show how it looks running the XCOM sequel. Specifically we will see how many frame rates an in game XCOM 2 turn will achieve when running on 1080p and 1440p at Ultra graphics settings. We will then compare the GTX 1060 Founders Edition and the MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G against a range of other graphics card benchmarks.

NOTE - We only have modern Nvidia graphics cards to test at the moment. Once the new AMD cards arrive we will compare all this awesome benchmark data against them as well. We also wanted to get the benchmarks out to you as soon as possible. However, we have lots of juicy data across the whole of Game-Debate for hardware comparisons against game system requirements and any other graphics card, so be sure to take a look here.

So you are telling me Nvidia 1060 just REKT AMD RX 480? Also i'm asking another question: would you benefit from 2GB more VRAM in the future (2017 and 2018), when we compare 1060 6GB and 480 8GB? Thank you for the answers

Depends on your future upgrades. If you're going to stay with 1080p, then 6 GB of VRAM to 8 won't make much of a difference.
