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]

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]
