Average Bench: 62.6% (45th of 627)

Based on 30,597 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, which in turn was a refresh of the RX 480. This iteration yields 10% higher clock speeds compared to the RX 580 which is fuelled by an increased power draw from 185W to 225W. The 590 does not have a 4GB variant which is good for longevity. At launch the 590 was priced at $280, which was 20% more expensive and 7% faster than Nvidia’s then popular 6GB 1060. In today’s market the 590 can be found for little as $170. For more than 90% of gamers (≤1080p) the RX 590 (at $170) represents the best value for money available. Since the GPU is by far the most important component in a gaming PC, it is usually worth spending more on it. The next step up from a 590 would be to Nvidia’s comparable $230 1660S. The 1660S is a more refined card, less heat results in less fan noise, but both are capable of delivering silky smooth 60+ EFps in almost all of today’s popular games at 1080p with maximum details. [Nov '19 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!
