Test 4: Far Cry Primal
Far Cry Primal is yet another Ubisoft game, but it’s powered by a different engine than The Division—the latest version of the long-running and well-respected Dunia engine.
Here, we see the opposite behavior compared to Rise of the Tomb Raider. While the EVGA HTX 1060 3GB Gaming’s in a dead heat with the RX 470 at High settings, it pulls ahead to match the RX 480 at Ultra.

EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 (3GB)
EVGA's $200 GTX 1060 3GB Gaming would be a no-brainer over AMD's Radeon RX 470 if it had a bit more memory.
- High-quality 1080p gaming
- Incredibly power efficient
- Affordable and available
- 3GB of RAM isn't very future proof
- Limited RAM already requires texture compromises in some games
