AMD Radeon RX 590 Drivers & Review

AMD Radeon RX 590 Drivers & Review – The best graphics card is rarely the most expensive model. Yes, Nvidia holds the crown for the extreme performance market, and the high-end market as well, but one look at the Steam Hardware Survey tells a well-known truth: The majority of gamers are using midrange or lower graphics cards. The top four GPUs are all midrange parts costing less than $300, and they account for more than 35 percent of the market. The GTX 1070 comes in fifth at around 4 percent market share, and the 1080 Ti only accounts for 1.5 percent of users.

Radeon RX 590 performance

Something I’ve been trying to do with GPU launches of late is to check out overclocking potential. My experience with the AMD Radeon RX 580 and RX 480/470 was relatively unimpressive for overclocking, but the Radeon RX 590 did okay. I managed a fully stable 1650MHz overclock on the GPU core (only 4.4 percent more than the XFX factory OC), but the GDDR5 I was able to max out the slider in MSI Afterburner at 9GT/s. I did have to increase GPU fan speeds a bit but ended up with a peak of 75C during my full test suite and the fan speed of around 60 percent. I’ll include both ‘stock’ (factory overclocked) and manual overclocking results for the 590 in the charts.

Overclocking did increase system power use by around 50W while gaming. At stock, MSI Afterburner reports about 150W for the Radeon RX 590, while power at the outlet for the entire PC measures 320-340W. With the overclock in place, power jumps to around 370-400W for the entire PC. A GTX 1060 6GB, by comparison, has a system power draw while gaming of 250-270W.
