    Ya like Intel or nvida don't have 10'000 that's pocket Chang to them lol nvida is killing the world right now pricing there top tier consumer card a about 1400 and there top tiera workstation cards at upwords of 7000 dollars u x that by a large amount of people u would say and average buys a gpu and u get a lot money but then u take out the other exspences and what are they truly left with so how much dose Nvidia take home after the end of the year there's kinda a cool future vid how well is Nvidia AMD and Intel doing

    nvidia have so much more mind-share than amd, amd will never win in graphics in terms of profit and market share, ever, cos the general consumer hears the word gpu and immediately thinks, nvidia.

    Sapphire nitro+ Rx 590 good only about $214 right now. You can spend $70 more to get 1660 ti, but might as well just go all out and get 1080 or 1080ti at that point. Rx 590 is just right for 1080p gaming.

    i just bought one. I needed an upgrade to a Sapphire FX7950. the rebranding gave me the opportunity to buy this thing cheap. with the rebranding they will continue driver updates for a longer period for those who have earlier versions of the card. that happened with the 7950 which was rebranded the RX270. I like this card so far.

    The 590 is at least somewhat affected by the more efficient architecture, even the architecture's name is a bit misleading.

    PinkasBrown44 22 days ago

    After 6 months, with the 1660ti (which you only get if you want to spend less than for a 2060), the only scenario I could see someone in the right mind purchasing RX580/590 is if prices for those GPUs drop down to half as much as they are currently charging. Then again, if AMD waits too much I might not even buy for that price. The GPU battle is lost anyway.

    • Nathan Gamble
      Nathan Gamble 9 days ago

      What country are you in? In most places the RX cards are competitively priced with nvidia's. This video is half a year old, and the price of the 590 is now a lot less than what this video says.

    I just upgraded to this card from an Asus R9 280x I’ve had since 2014. Well worth the upgrade. This card performs very well for the price. For $215 new I think this card is excellent.

      What games are you playing, what are your performance targets, and what are you willing to spend?
      One of the easiest ways to start is to look at benchmarking sites, and find a GPU with a good enough benchmark score compared to the 580 at a price you like.

      Your best option might be to wait until Navi comes out, as it is expected to be competitively priced from the low end to upper midrange.

      You could get any GPU below an RTX 2080 and not be bottlenecked by your CPU at 1080p. If you're playing at higher resolutions, CPU bottleneck is not likely to be an issue.

    If you want efficiency increase, get a 580 and UV it, if you want but dont need performance increase, go for a 480 OC. Its always been a scamming business with bottled necks, it sells, its clickbait. We have Bern conditioned to eat Speck. If you wanna play the newest AAA games, you either screw down graphics or spend a ton of money on the latest GPU/CPU too enjoy the game in all its beauty with beta drivers. Just go for 3gen cards and games, by the time you hit todays top titles its all patched and drivers are decent. CRTs still rock.

    Once I was arguing about that, it's not a rebranding, if it was it would be called RX 680.

      exactly what I was thinking. If they'd called it a 680, fine, this video would be warranted. Calling it a 590 seems perfectly accurate to me. idk what was in their kool-aid the day they made this...

  • xgravegame
    xgravegame Month ago

    this video is true
    the gtx590 has only like 10-15 fps difference between an rx580
    a gtx590 has 15-20fps difference from a gtx1070
    rx590 cost 200$
    but a gtx 1070 cost 300$
    that's quite a difference in price for just 15-20fps
    you could add another 100$ and get a gtx1080 that ads at least 30-50fps more which is actually a good difference

    So when intel changes nothing, it gets tested to the moon and given it's news cycle and in that video Linus points out the process node staying the same as part of his argument about how they could have changed at least something. AMD does a die shrink and an incremental upgrade and then he does this shit lol.

    I have to disagree with the line up AMD putting up being non-blockbuster. I was already looking for an upgrade card and found the card itself and the games provided for "free" to be reason enough to pick up the Vega 64 when i did. I agree with the rest of this video.

    first review from your channel that i don't agree with, RE2 and DMC5 are top games, it hast 15% better performance, and the division 2 sucks, the rx590 is worst than the 580? i probably would say go all the way with a 580, dmc5 re2 and 100 dollars less, for 15% less performance, save that 100 on ram or a better cpu, or an ssd. but you fail your point on this review.

    I'm getting the 590 8gb [nitro sapphire] card because the truth is that {not buy much, like 10 fps boost} its more powerful than a 580 8gb. I'm using a GTX 1060 3gb as I'm typing this but the 590 has a few special tricks like intelligence fans, fan check, nitro editions, and with 8gb VRAM, any game can be played at about 70+ fps on max graphics. its a nice upgrade for me, I don't care its basically the same card, I just want to get a better setup. Seems like a good deal, free games, good fancy features, a new card, and better specs.

    I'd like to point out that I'm just now watching this because I haven't been interested in any products since Ryzen first was coming out and have hardly felt the need to keep up on products for the past couple years. So, companies take advantage of the wallets of the enthusiasts (or at least the enthused) and start pushing out anybody who's tired of watching a review just to see if anything has actually changed. And to that, no. Nothing's really changed from a year ago. Anyways, thoughts and prayers for competition in 2020.

So it might be possible that rx580 has been modified a little so that they can sell their Old Stock [Rx580] cards.. And as I was thinking about this... I saw you Video Surfing..

    All you PC masters (litearlly) are missing another point; customers that aren't particularly interested in the spec sheet comparisons and whatnot can't really know what they're buying into. If you have enough knowledge to argue about how the 10%~ increase in performance has a significant impact and how their price is comparable blah blah, you have the ability to field the initial retail sale tag and find 'sweet spot'. But a lot of us don't, and that's where this somewhat dubious ad campaign comes in.
