How far can the GTX 1060 overclock?  If it overclocks 15-20% it will maintain the same gap it does stock to stock right now.  And it will maintain the same electricity savings advantage.

Clearly the delay with the AIB 480s is because of a supply issue with the GPUs.   The reference versions are really hard to find.  I guess I was lucky to get one at all.
Well, I'm just saying that 1500mhz on the RX480 represents an 18% overclock. Realistically I can't see the GTX 1060 overclocking more than that in terms of percentage. There was a report of one hitting 2.1ghz but I doubt most cards will hit that speed. With the latest drivers it looks like the performance delta is only 10%. So things are looking better for AMD, particularly if the aftermarket cards can overclock well (which I doubt). Even if they don't overclock, AMD will be able to compete based on price like they always have.
