    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 11 days 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.

    I Just.. Just !! thought about it after watching another video comparison between rx580 vs. rx590.. I figured out it's approx. The same Fps just little higher on rx590.. 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.. And that was the Moment I felt Maybe I'm right suggesting from your Fave and Ta~Da !!

    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.
