AMD's hardware partners have begun slashing prices on Radeon RX 590 graphics cards, the timing of which coincides with rival NVIDIA's launch of the GeForce GTX 1660 Super. While it could be a coincidence (not really), the two cards compete in the same performance segment, so a price reduction at this point in time makes sense. Quite as bit has transpired since the Radeon RX 590 first rolled into the scene around a year ago. Essentially a refresh of Polaris, a GPU architecture that is now two generations old (behind Navi and Vega), it debuted at $279 (MSRP) and earned HotHardware's coveted Editor's Choice award. It's a less compelling card in the current landscape, though not irrelevant, particularly... Read more...
As it pertains to graphics cards, quite a bit has changed over the past year or so. Had you been in the market for a GPU around this time last year, you would have been staring at inflated price tags for practically every mid-range and high-end option on the market. Fast forward to today and things are looking much better, thanks to the cryptocurrency market sinking like the Titanic, and new GPU launches. NVIDIA's newest generation Turing GPU architecture has been especially helpful in spurring better prices, at least in certain segments. Sure, the initial GeForce RTX series launch hit gamers with sticker shock, but then came the GeForce RTX 2060, which is still the least expensive RTX model... Read more...
During the cryptocurrency mining boom, it was a crummy time to be a PC gamer in need of a graphics card upgrade. Practically every mid-range and high-end card was in short supply, and what little inventory did show up online was grossly overpriced. Things have changed dramatically since then, and may get even better. Word on the web is that AMD is getting ready to cut prices on its Radeon RX 590 and 580 cards. This would be in direct response to NVIDIA's recently announced GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, which is the first Turing card to arrive without the benefit of RT and Tensor cores for real-time ray tracing and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) support. The appeal of the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is that... Read more...
AMD has had a fairly sizable hole in its graphics card line-up for quite some time now. Disregarding the craziness crypto-miners caused for a while there, pricing on the Radeon RX 580 has hovered around the $200 mark, whereas most of the Radeon RX Vega 56 cards currently available sell for over $400 – give or take a few bucks. In addition, there have been no current-gen offerings released in between the two. Fortunately, AMD hopes to address this situation today, however, with the launch of a semi-new GPU, the not-so-secret Radeon RX 590. Over the last few weeks, news of the Radeon RX 590 has steadily leaked out to the web. We’ve covered a number of the stories on the news page, but... Read more...
AMD might as well formally introduce the oft rumored Radeon RX 590 at this point—we all know it's coming, and several of AMD's add-in board (AIB) partners have designs in place, based on all of the leaks so far. The latest to join the fray is XFX with its factory overclocked Radeon RX 590 FatBoy OC+ edition model. Image Source: Videocardz via XFX To quickly recap, the Radeon RX 590 is an unannounced new product that is based on a refreshed Polaris GPU, often referred to as Polaris 30. While there are no official details available, rumor has it that Polaris 30 is built on a 12-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process and has the same number of stream processors and compute units as previous...

Brace yourself, Radeon RX 590 graphics cards are coming. There is zero doubt about that at this point, even though AMD's upcoming Polaris refresh is still not official. It will be soon, and in the meantime, we're seeing more and more related leaks. The latest one is a set of press images depicting Sapphire's Radeon RX 590 Nitro+ Special Edition graphics card. Image Source: Videocardz Looking at the images, it appears Sapphire is recycling the same custom "Dual-X" cooler that's found on its other Nitro+ cards, such as the Radeon RX 580 Nitro+, but in a different color—it's blue this time around. "The Dual-X cooler featured in the latest Sapphire Nitro+ RX 500 Series cards is an all-new design.... Read more...
AMD is on the cusp of releasing yet another Radeon RX graphics card model based on its Polaris architecture, essentially a refresh with presumably faster clockspeeds and, as a result, improved performance. Will there be anything else to note? Probably not, unless AMD has something under its sleeve that has not yet been leaked. At this point, Polaris has been around the block a time or two. Unless AMD deviates from its roadmap (unlikely), Navi will be the next major GPU design upgrade out of Sunnyvale. In the meantime, AMD is squeezing as much life out of Polaris as it can, as it's still a capable architecture for the lucrative mid-range and entry-level markets. Polaris will make another introduction... Read more...
If we owned a farm, we'd strongly considering betting it on AMD and its hardware partners releasing a Radeon RX 590 with an upgraded Polaris GPU underneath the hood. The clues are there, including a leaked press render of a PowerColor card. If that is not enough, however, there are now photos floating around of an actual retail box, complete with some specs. Source: Twitter via Andreas Schilling The Radeon RX 590 is yet another refresh to Polaris as AMD works on a die shrink for Vega and its 7nm Navi architecture. Polaris 30, as we and others have been calling it, is built on a 12-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process. The assumption is that it will deliver faster clockspeeds and better power... Read more...
A juicy new rumor points to AMD launching its upcoming Radeon RX 590 graphics card in time for the holiday shopping season, and specifically on November 15, which is two and a half weeks from today. Previous leaks and rumors suggest it will arrive with a 12-nanometer Polaris 30 GPU underneath the hood and offer strong mid-range performance. While nothing is official, we're fairly convinced the new Polaris model exists. There is enough evidence to sway us in that direction, including a leaked press render from PowerColor for an upcoming Red Devil variant. ASUS is also rumored to be prepping a Radeon RX 590 graphics card under its Republic of Gamers (ROG) and Strix branding (ROG-STRIX-RX590-8G-GAMING).... Read more...
It now seems like a foregone conclusion that AMD and its hardware partners will be rolling out a new Radeon RX 590 model based on a refreshed Polaris GPU. Following rumors that ASUS is prepping a Radeon RX 590 ROG Strix graphics card, a purported press render of a PowerColor Radeon RX 590 Red Devil has found its way to the web. PowerColor's card looks the same as its Radeon RX 580 Red Devil Golden Sample. There are two cooling fans sitting atop a chunky cooler. It takes up three expansion slots, so buyers who are interested in this card will have to make sure they have the necessary room inside their case. Other than that, we don't have any details on specs. Past leaks and rumors point to the... Read more...
AMD seems to be focusing on squeezing as much out of its Polaris architecture as possible while we wait for Navi to arrive. There have already been several generations of Polaris parts, including the Radeon RX 400 series, Radeon RX 500 series, and a refreshed release of the latter. Now there is chatter of a Radeon RX 590 model being around the bend. A Radeon RX 590 would be an interesting wrinkle to the Polaris lineup, given that it's recently been rumored AMD would launch 12nm Polaris 30 GPUs. As the rumor goes, Polaris 30 would be used in upcoming Radeon RX 680 and Radeon RX 670 models. None of this has been announced, of course, but we can certainly envision AMD stretching out its Polaris... Read more...
