Average Bench: 61.1% (64th of 621)

Based on 16,805 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]

Works great for me on my dual monitors. Upgraded to a RX590 from a GTX 1050 TI. Big difference in cards. I've always bought nvidia cards, this is my first AMD card (though I've always built AMD chipped PCs). So far I'm liking what AMD gpu's have to offer.
