The RX 580 is released this week and is AMD’s latest flagship GPU based on second generation Polaris architecture. For all intents and purposes it is a refresh of the RX 480 released just 10 months prior. Modifications to the architecture have yielded improved performance per wattage and increased clock speeds of around 10% for base and around 5% for boost. The RX 580 will come with either 4GB or 8GB of high-bandwidth GDDR5 memory. Exact pricing for this mid-range chip remains to be seen, but the RX 500 series is likely to cannibalize sales of AMD’s 400 series. Performance wise, the RX 580 is in direct competition with NVIDIA’s popular GTX 1060 6GB which in now 9 months old. Perhaps after last year’s ill timed head to head release of the RX 480 and the faster but similarly priced GTX 1060 (a standoff which NVIDIA seem to have won based on market share), AMD are attempting to draw back some market share with the newer, slightly upgraded RX 580. The upcoming release of the 500 series comes ahead of AMD’s Vega architecture, for which specification and pricing details are not yet public but which will is expected to yield a significant jump in performance compared to Polaris. [Apr '17 GPUPro]

The AMD R9 390X is a rebadged power hungry (350W+) 290X. The 390X has a slightly increased GPU clock speed, a significantly increased memory speed and a higher minimum VRAM of 8GB but it shares the same core GPU hardware. Looking at the overclocked performance differences between the older 290X and the 390X shows that the two cards are approximately the same, which comes as no surprise considering that the 390X is actually just a factory overclocked 290X. Smart shoppers obviously won't be happy to pay AMD a premium of around $100 simply for overclocking a two year old 290X. That said the 390X does offer stellar performance, particularly at 4K resolutions and if prices drop significantly it could become a strong contender. We only have one MSI sample benchmark for the 390X so far so we will revisit this GPU when we have a better sample of all the available cards. [Jun '15 GPUPro]
