According to Forbes, the Radeon RX 580 will be leading the pack, being on par with NVIDIA's 1060 GPU.The 500 series is not meant to be as ground-breaking as the 10-series of NVIDIA was, but is merely meant to act as a refresh of the already worn out 400 series of Radeon graphics cards. The Radeon RX 550 will be coming later this week, just like the RX 580 and RX 570, and should have a suggest retail price of USA $79. Known to be a full upgrade of the Radeon RX 400 series, what people could feel about the graphics card depends on what they choose.
The list starts with Polaris 10-based Radeon RX 580 and Radeon RX 570 graphics cards, which are practically rebrands of the Radeon RX 480 and RX 470 graphics cards. Boost clocks have also increased by 6 percent. Most RX 460 came without the need for external power, except for some high factory-overclocked graphics cards like the Asus ROG RX 460 Strix. On the RX 570 the gap is even bigger since the new card features Core/Boost frequencies of 1168/1244 MHz while the previous model clocked at 926/1206 MHz.
The Asus Radeon RX 580 Dual sounds like it could be a very exciting Crossfire-on-a-stick card. This also explains why the new dual-fan reference card has a new board with a single 8-pin power connector and an on TBP to 185W. One of the few changes that AMD brought was the increased boost clock speed of 1340 MHz compared to 1266 MHz of the RX 480. The RX 570 has been priced at $170, RX 560 at $100, and RX 550 at $80.
AMD's new Radeon RX 500-series graphics cards are here, and they're most notable for what they're aren't. At 1080p, the RX 580 rendered at 86.2 fps, just above the 1060's 84.8 fps. As part of the RX 500 announcement, AMD's also adding Radeon Chill support for League of Legends and Dota 2-two of the most-played games on the planet. Equipped with 2304 GCN-based stream processors, the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 580 is the card to run modern games in 1080p and beyond, as well as deliver premium VR experiences. I landed back on Earth when the title of the next email mentioned the RX 500 series. All the products will be available by this week worldwide, save for the RX 560, which will be made available only in May. A non-Golden Sample version of the Red Devil RX 580 will carry an MSRP of $230.
Meet the new sub-$200 graphics card boss, same as the old sub-$200 graphics card boss.
We are only going to discuss the AMD Radeon RX 580 today because that is the video card we will be evaluating. Despite the manufacturing process maturity, the higher clocks came with a price, since both RX 580 and RX 570 also have a higher power consumption. So, while the RX 580 is clearly an upgrade, it is not in a different league altogether. The flagship is the Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ Limited Edition, which has a 1450MHz GPU Boost clock and cherry-picked GPUs to ensure maximum performance.
