I have seen what it can do in Metro. If that impresses you then you should definitely get one, maybe two.

The RX 590 is such a bad buy. And today proves exactly why. On a side note. I don't know why anyone would touch Radeon 7 when Vega 56 is now almost 1/3 the price.

You know when Nvidia segmented "GTX" from "GT" and "GTS"? we're seeing that here.


These surprisingly have FP16 per Anandtech as well as concurrent float + int operation, so it does have an improvement over Pascal (at a price).


MSI Ventus has a plastic backplate , one heatpipe, and low power limit once again though, so the EVGA card is probably better. MSI Armor also has a plastic backplate.

Was reading the reviews and the EVGA card does look to be the better buy. The 2.75 slot design is interesting and I wonder how the cooling handles real world gaming.

The RX580 is also on sale for $179 and $189 with 2 free games for those that want to stick below the $279 price point.

Looks like AMD is back on the saddle in being competitive again. Not only did they wet the whistle with the V56 but also covered their rear with the 580.

I just find a launch like this underwhelming considering everything.

GTX1070 came out mid-2016 with $380 MSRP. Now almost 3 years later we have similar performance with less memory for $100 less. It just does not seem impressive. I would not upgrade to this unless I have something lower than RX 570, so really anything like GTX 960/RX 560/R9 285 but at the same time those where much cheaper GPUs. Its one thing to refresh/rebrand/lower prices but releases a new architecture at this power/price level is sad. Almost seems like Nvidia wants to saturate the market with 10s of models.

They have been that price for a while. Unless they knew the price of the 1660ti for a while.

The 580 is much better than the 590 but the prices on vega 56 are dropping. Not just new but used also. Used vega 56 can be had for around $250 usd for quite some time now via ebay. But if you can get one brand new for $250 with 3 games you can probably sell to sweeten the deal. I'm not sure if the RX 590 or 580 holds water any more. The 4gb RX 570 however? Is crazy cheap. Especially used.
