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...

Now that Radeon RX Vega 56 and Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card pricing has finally settled down to somewhat sane levels after months of mind-numbing $100+ price premiums for reference cards, we are beginning to see a slow trickle of custom cards from the usual suspects. Earlier this week, PowerColor opened preorders for its custom Radeon RX Vega 64 Red Devil, and now it's XFX's turn with its Radeon RX Vega Double Edition graphics cards. The cards are available in RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 64 SKUs, and are shorter in length than typical reference boards. The cards were teased earlier this month, but now we have official specs for both. However, those that were expecting to see higher clock frequencies... Read more...
When it comes to AMD's Radeon RX Vega family of graphics cards, we haven't seen much [yet] as far as custom boards go. Sure, we've seen a custom board from ASUS and Gigabyte's Radeon RX Vega 64 GAMING OC, but that's about it. Thankfully, the folks over at XFX are teasing an upcoming Radeon RX Vega card, and it's quite the looker. Our first look at the card comes thanks to Mark Regimbal, community manager over at XFX, who posted images to reddit.  The first thing that caught our attention is most definitely the twin red fans, which are ensconced in a carbon fiber-esque shroud. It's a dramatic departure from the rather Plain Jane look of the single-fan reference Radeon RX Vega cards that we've... Read more...
As we detailed late last week, AMD has two brand-new Radeon graphics cards due to hit the market soon: the Radeon RX 470 and Radeon RX 460. The former is going to come out on the 4th of August (aka: this Thursday), while the RX 460 will arrive four days later, on August 8th. While anything lower-end than AMD's Radeon RX 480 might not seem that interesting, this card promises to pack in a surprise or two. In fact, it's been rumored that it could be even more overclockable than the RX 480, which could help users effectively catch up to the stock speeds of AMD's mainstream card. It'd be nice, at least! To prove that the RX 470 is no slouch, look no further than a new leak from Chinese website Expreview,... Read more...
AMD's hardware partners are starting to showcase custom versions of its Radeon RX 480 graphics card with fancy cooling solutions, overclocked specs, and bits of bling. We've already seen glimpses of what ASUS and MSI have in store, and now there are leaked images of custom cooled Radeon RX 480 card from XFX.It's equipped with a two-fan cooler that runs the length of the card. XFX's logo sits on the topside and lights up when the card is running, adding some visual flair to the non-reference card. And over on the other side of the card is a snazzy looking backplate with several poked holes, presumably so the card can breathe and dissipate heat buildup.Cooling is definitely a point of emphasis...

Someone at XFX screwed up and posted a press image of the company's forthcoming Radeon R9 390X graphics card on the product page for its Radeon R9 290X Double Dissipation Edition card. The slip up wouldn't be all that egregious for XFX, except that the leaked photo all but confirms the Radeon R9 390X will be a refresh of the 290X.While nearly all of the specs aren't visible in the press image, you can make out that it will ship with 8GB of GDDR5 memory. If that stands true, then the 390X won't be using AMD's Fiji GPU, as those graphics cards are limited to 4GB of high-bandwidth memory (HBM).Also shown in the pic is that the 390X will come bundled with Dirt Rally and use the same cooler as the...

The hottest hoax hopping around cyber space this morning is the supposed availability of the first Fermi graphics card in pre-order form. It's being 'offered' by obscure online vendor SabrePC.com, which has the XFX GTX 480 graphics card listed for $679.99, a veritable 'bargain' compared to its original price of $699.99.Word to the wise: Don't go coughing up your credit card number, or any other personal information, for that matter. While it's not uncommon for upcoming parts to leak to the Web ahead of schedule -- including order pages like this one -- there's little to indicate this is the real deal, and plenty points to the contrary. There's the memory size, for one (unless there's some rounding... Read more...
The PC world was treated to one of those rare occurrences a few weeks back--a 1-2 punch into the 3D graphics fray from both ATI and NVIDIA. We're talking about the near simultaneous launches of the ATI Radeon HD 4890 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275. Both of their names lead to obvious suggestions about where they fit into their respective families.With the Radeon HD 4890, one might assume that there was an update made to the venerable HD 4870, and for the most part that assumption would be correct. Both GPUs share the same number of shader processors, texture units, and ROPs, bit with three million more transistors than the RV770, and hence a larger die, clearly something else was at work here. As... Read more...

When first evaluated in June of 2008, we concluded that the GeForce GTX 260 and 280 series offered the most raw power of any gaming graphics cards available at that time.  This premium performance, however, came with a hefty price tag, making these models too costly to justify for some folks.  A week after their introduction, ATI unveiled the Radeon HD 4850 and 4870 which proved to be decent competitors to the GeForce GTX 260 while attempting to steal NVIDIA's thunder with a lower price as well.  Not to be outdone, NVIDIA quickly followed up by introducing price cuts of their own and upping the ante further with their next iteration of GTX 260, dubbed the GeForce GTX 260 (216). ...
