Default AMD RX 590 Video Card

November 13th, 2018, 01:42
AMD launched a new video card targeting the GTX 1060 called the RX 590.

Don’t get too excited thinking that this is either the AMD Navi architecture or Christmas coming early. The AMD RX 590 is more of a continuation of the existing Polaris GPU design, but with a few tricks up its sleeve to deliver a little more mainstream performance than we’ve come to expect from a numbered Radeon graphics card.

As such, the RX Vega 64 will still remain as the top AMD GPU in its performance stack, but the RX 590 is set to come in at a position in the market where the red team can make a genuine impact. Dropping a fresh GPU into the massive mainstream market, just before the big holiday season, is a smart move by AMD because it’s the only place where Nvidia doesn’t have total dominance.

At the moment the RX 580 and GTX 1060 go toe-to-toe in the sub-$300 graphics card market, with the benchmark gaming performance averaging out to a dead heat. Some games run faster on the Nvidia GPU, and others perform better on the AMD graphics card. But the RX 590 is coming in around the same price, but with performance expected to be comfortably higher than the GTX 1060 across the board.
Not bad if your looking for a decent priced video card.
The new RX 590 needs to come into the sub-$300 category to make sense. The RX 580 currently sits between $225 and $270 for the 8GB version, so a launch price of $299 is quite likely.

Targeting GTX 1060? You sure it's not hopes up for PS5?

Say whatever you want Joxer but most gamers use these cards. As the video and article says this is a smart move by AMD as NVIDIA cards are more expensive.

Anyway it's not for the rich gamer Elite who spend $600-$1,000 on a single card.

That's not rich gamer elite. Rich gamer elite buys whatever PC Gamer says is the best and to afford those stuff you need to mortgage something. Or be a hotel owner.

But I still think the masterplan is pushing it inside new playstations. Sony is not sitting idle but is beating the dead horse (yea, said that already in another thread today although wasn't about Sony):

Nah it will probably be Microsoft & Sony as they used AMD in their last two consoles.

Anyway like this video says.
