In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 590 8GB are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon RX 570 4GB.

The RX 590 has a 301 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 570. This results in the RX 590 providing 62 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX 590 has a 301 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 570 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RX 590 providing 9.6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 590 was released over a year more recently than the RX 570, and so the RX 590 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the RX 570.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The RX 590 has 4096 MB more video memory than the RX 570, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX 590 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 590 has 32 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 570, which means that the memory performance of the RX 590 is noticeably better than the RX 570.

The Radeon RX 590 8GB has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 570 4GB has 2048. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 590 is 3560 and the actual shader performance of the RX 570 is 2548. The RX 590 having 1012 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 590 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 570.

The RX 590 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RX 570. This means that the RX 590 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RX 570.

The Radeon RX 590 8GB requires 175 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 570 4GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 590 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 570. The RX 590 requires 55 Watts more than the RX 570 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX 590 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 570.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The new AMD Radeon RX 590 is an uprated version of the RX 580 on the smaller 12nm process node.

This RX 590 is the 8GB version.

Architecture
It equips a GPU codenamed Polaris 30, which has 2304 shader processing units, 144 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The RX 590 8GB central processing unit runs at 1545MHz and goes up to (xx)MHz when in boost and turbo mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 2000MHz.

Power Consumption
The RX 590 8GB has a power TDP requirement of 150W. This means it will require at least a 500W PSU with one dedicated 8-pin connector.

Performance
Early benchmarks indicate that the AMD Radeon RX 590 8GB will be around 10-15% faster than the Nvidia GTX 1060 in terms of gaming performance, and around 6% faster than the Radeon RX 580 model it is replacing.

System Suggestions
The new Radeon RX 590 8GB releases on the 30th October 2018 and is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a high-end processor, like the new Ryzen R5 and at least 12GB of RAM for optimal gaming performance.
Overview
First off we should point out that this is not the new AMD Vega graphics card line. These new AMD Radeon RX 500 series cards are an uprated version of the RX 400 series that they are replacing. This RX 570 graphics card is one of the higher performance models from the new AMD Radeon RX 500 Series.

The AMD RX 570 4GB graphics card released in April 2017 as an AMD performance gaming graphics card. This card competes against Nvidia's GTX 1050 Ti and replaces the older Radeon RX 470. As a Polaris refresh, the RX 570 runs at a slightly faster clock speed than the RX 470.

Architecture
It is powered by the 14nm Pollaris 20 GPU, which has 2048 shader processing units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1168MHz and goes up to 1244MHz, when the boost mode is triggered.

Memory
The RX570 comes with a 4GB frame buffer of GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
The AMD RX 570 has been built as a Mid/High performance graphics card for 2017. It will run most triple AAA titles released during 2017 on medium to high graphics at 1080p screen resolution. With adjustments and lowering anti aliasing this RX570 4GB card can confidently maintain 60+ frames per seconds on high graphic settings at 1080p. Moving to 1440p screen resolution and the graphics card may need to be adjusted down to medium in order to maintain 50-60+ fps.

System Suggestions
The RX 570 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a mid range R5 Ryzen processor and at least 8GB of system memory for optimal gaming performance from the RX 570.
