AMD released an interesting update to the RX 580 today, the aptly named RX 590. It sports the same internals as the current card, with one significant difference which are the clocks. The new RX 590 sports frequencies of 1469 MHz Base, 1545 MHz Boost which is a hair over 200MHz higher than the 580 and [H]ard|OCP were able to push it up to 1670MHz with a bit of extra juice. Their findings matched Ken's, in that this new card makes NVIDIA's GTX 1060 obsolete as it outperforms it and at a better price point. The only drawback to the XFX Fatboy model reviewed is given away in the name; the card is a wee bit over 2 slots in height.
[H]'s suite of games incorporates different titles than ours so make sure you do pay them a visit.
"AMD is launching the new Radeon RX 590 GPU today, and we have a custom XFX Radeon RX 590 Fatboy OC+ video card to evaluate. With a high factory overclock, and potential for overclocking, we will compare this video card with the EVGA GTX 1060 SSC overclocked and test at 1080p and 1440p gaming."
