Average Bench: 60.8% (46th of 621)

Based on 22,401 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 67DF Model: Radeon RX 590

AMD’s mid-range RX 590 is the latest refresh of their Polaris-based RX 580 from 2016, which in turn was a refresh of their RX 480 (2015). This iteration yields 15% higher clock speeds compared to the RX 580 which is reflected in the early benchmark data. This increased performance is fuelled by an increased power draw: the 580 had a TDP of 185W compared to the 590’s 225W, which compares to 210W for AMD’s high-performance Radeon RX Vega 56. Like the 8GB version of the RX 580, the RX 590 also has 8GB of GDDR5 with a 256GB/s memory bandwidth. With this iteration there isn’t a 4GB variant which is a good thing because 4GB can bottleneck an increasing proportion of games. Priced at $280, it is currently 20% more expensive than NVIDIA’s popular 6GB 1060, but is 12% faster in terms of effective speed. As a bonus, shoppers can get better value for money by purchasing one of the numerous game bundles that are currently available. [Nov '18 GPUPro]

It would be great if the 1660 didn't exist. However, for nearly the same price the 590 has double the TDP and is slightly outperformed by 1660.

I recently upgraded from this card to a RX 5700-XT, but this card is so good I didn't want to get rid of it and ended up moving it to my secondary rig replacing a GTX 1050 Ti. It's honestly the best mid-range card out there and for the price (£227.00 at time of review, though I paid £200 on a flash sale) the cost to performance ratio can't be beaten.

in my country it has the same price as the 1060, yet this card can outperform it in almost if not all situations. great card for compromise free 1080p gaming.

upgrading from a msi gaming GTX 960 2GB overclocked at 1544Mhz core and 2000Mhz Memory. I have absolutely no regrets or sorrow for that matter simply because the RX 590 destroys the 960 in performance. a great card for its price tag. now i can finally enjoy high - ultra 1080p gaming!
