AMD releases GTX 1060-busting Radeon RX 570 and RX 580

AMD HAS LAUNCHED a new Radeon RX 570 and RX 580 graphics cards based, like their 400-series predecessors, on a Polaris microarchitecture and built on 14nm FinFET routine manufacturing, though with ratcheted adult time speeds.

The inclination form partial of AMD’s response to Nvidia’s considerable 10-series GPUs, that it was gradually rolled out to good reviews given a center of 2016.

The dual GPUs are dictated to succeed AMD’s RX 470 and RX480 graphics cards, launched final year in response to Nvidia’s steamrollering GeForce GTX 1060 and 1050 Ti inclination – though primarily understocked as AMD struggled to pull units out of a doorway quick enough.

AMD claims that a Radeon RX 580 is rival opposite Nvidia’s GeFore GTX 1060, though should import in during a reduce cost indicate compared to many GTX 1060 graphics cards on a marketplace currently – $199 or $229, depending on either we bucket your basket with a 4GB indication or a 8GB model, compared to a $229-$299 cost points of a several 6GB GTX 1060-based graphics label on a marketplace today.  

The RX 580 will offer a bottom time speed of 1,257MHz and boost time of 1,340MHz. Its Polaris design has 36 discriminate units or 2,304 tide processors. Digital Foundry describes it as “an overclocked RX 480“, enabled by refinements to Polaris.

“It is what it is, an RX 480 with a few slight tweaks to a clock,” they add. 

The 4GB RX 570, meanwhile, is labelled during $169 and dictated to contest opposite Nvidia’s 3GB GTX 1060 and a 4GB GTX 1050Ti, as good as providing a deputy for a ephemeral RX480, that was ignored over a Easter weekend in modernized of a 500-series launch today.

The Radeon RX 570 will come in 4GB and 8GB variants (for $199 or so) and offer a bottom time speed of 1,168MHz and a boost time of 1,244MHz. Like a RX 580, it is flattering most an RX 470 with a few tweaks to supplement a lurch some-more performance.

At a bottom end, meanwhile, AMD also announced a full Polaris 11 RX 560 and a low-end form of a Polaris 12 GPU, that will find a home in a stirring Radeon RX 550.

However, while charity good value for money, a Radeon RX 500 array represents some-more of a modernise compared to a ‘old’ RX 400 cards than honestly new products. Enthusiasts, meanwhile, will have to continue their wait for a perennially stirring Vega GPUs that AMD has been earnest for some time. µ
