AMD markets their RX 400 series as the best for 1080p gaming, releasing benchmark results comparing the RX 470 to the unreleased GTX 1050 Ti.

This is a very strange situation, as this means that AMD has released more performance benchmarks on Nvidia's GTX 1050/ 1050Ti than Nvidia themselves before any members of the press have been able to release any reviews of their own, which is a first for the industry. This makes us question how AMD have been able to publish these results, as it would require AMD to get a hold of a GTX 1050Ti before release, which is a little bit insane given how AMD and Nvidia are direct competitors. 

What AMD is marketing is that their RX 470 his higher specifications than Nvidia's GTX 1050T and comes in with only a minimal price increase, which will make this GPU very attractive for entry level PC gamers.

Right now AMD is boasting a 13% increase n performance in Overwatch, a 70% increase in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and a 33% increase in DOOM when using an RX 470 over an Overclocked GTX 1050Ti, which is a huge set of performance gains for a $20 increase in MSRP. 

It is worth noting that these results are from AMD themselves and come before the release of the GTX 1050 Ti, so these results are questionable at best.

One other angle that AMD are using is that AMD's RX 400 series of GPUs offer full support for Asynchronous compute, which has given AMD a significant performance boost in several games when using DirectX 12 or Vulkan. Full Asynchronous compute support is not present in Nvidia's Maxwell or Pascal series GPUs, giving AMD a big technical advantage. 

The RX 400 series also comes with support for AMD's FreeSync technology, which is a big thing for low budget gamers, since FreeSync monitors are typically more affordable than their G-Sync counterparts.

AMD has also released the following slide showcasing Battlefield 1's PC performance using DirectX 12, which is shown as being significantly higher on AMD's GPUs, though it is worth noting that the Nvidia results here are likely using the DirectX 12 API, where Nvidia actually have decreased levels of performance. 

If the Nvidia results were achieved using DirectX 11 the results would not look so favourable for AMD, as Nvidia's GPUs would offer a lot more GPU performance.

Nvidia's GTX 1050Ti will release tomorrow on October 25th, with reviews coming out at the same time as retail availability.  This is when we will see how the low-mid range GPU lineups of AMD and Nvidia will compare. Will AMD's pre-release results hold true?

Well if you want to be honest the 1060 is better for 1080p if you consider that DX12 isn't in full use atm, so most games are DX11 and the 1060 is better mostly. By the time DX12 becomes the mainstream it will probably be time to upgrade the GPU anywayQuote

The 1060 isn't relevant in this comparison though, for budget 1080p the 470 and 1050ti are competing. That's the point they are trying to make, even if they didn't do it wellQuote

dx12 became mainstream after the last AAA game to use it. Its only going to become more prevalent in 2017.Quote

That's not what mainstream is.. once it becomes a regular thing and many AAA titles support it, then yes mainstream. 2017 should be a much bigger dx12 year though, that I will agree withQuote

Now how did you get your hands on that AMD.

Looks like they forgot to let people know that free sync comes at a premium too. Then again it is royalty freeQuote
