Even at 1080p, the GTX 1060 is a significant step faster than the RX 480 and is close in performance to the GTX 1070. The GTX 1060 finds itself a couple of FPS faster than the GTX 980. One solid change for AMD is that with the 16.7.2 driver the stutter and hitching in this title has been fixed.

While the gap widens dramatically between the GTX 1060 and the GTX 1070 at the higher resolution, NVIDIA's new card maintains a solid 38% (!!) lead over the RX 480 in Grand Theft Auto V.
