In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5700 8GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 590 8GB.

The RX 590 has a 4 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the RX 5700. This results in the RX 590 providing 0.5 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 4 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 5700, but the RX 5700 has 32 more Render Output Units than the RX 590. As a result, the RX 5700 exhibits a 46.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the RX 590. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 5700 was released less than a year after the RX 590, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

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 Radeon RX 5700 8GB and the Radeon RX 590 8GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The RX 5700 has 192 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 590, which means that the memory performance of the RX 5700 is massively better than the RX 590.

Both the Radeon RX 5700 8GB and the Radeon RX 590 8GB have 2304 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the RX 590 is 3560 and by the RX 5700 is 3560. Knowing that the shader performance of the RX 590 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The RX 5700 transistor size technology is 5 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RX 590. This means that the RX 5700 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RX 590.

The Radeon RX 5700 8GB requires 180 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 590 8GB requires 175 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 5700 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 590. The RX 5700 requires 5 Watts more than the RX 590 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the RX 5700 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the RX 590.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The AMD Radeon RX 5700 8GB is an Enthusiast gaming Graphics Card based on the first (1.0) Revision of the RDNA Architecture.

Architecture
The Navi 10 XL GPU offers support for GDDR6 Memory, DirectX 12.0, Vulkan 1.0, and OpenGL 4.5. This variant of the Navi 10 XL GPU features 36 Compute Units activated, offering 2304 Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The GPU features a 1465 MHz base clock speed and up to 1725 MHz with boost clock, making it an estimated 15% faster than a GeForce RTX 2060. This puts its predicted performance roughly in line with the Radeon RX Vega 64.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1465 MHz, rising to 1725 MHz with boost clock enabled..

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with high-speed GDDR6 and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit memory interface, providing total memory bandwidth of 448 GB/s.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 8GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However,the GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming, In some limited scenarios, 8GB might be a bottleneck and Performance could be better were the Frame Buffer larger, however this would only be an issue in the most demanding games.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 180W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8+6-pin connector.

Performance
AMD Radeon RX 5700 8GB competes with GeForce RTX 2070 8GB, which is available for $499.
Specs currently available suggest the AMD Radeon RX 5700 8GB performance should be in the same region as the Radeon RX Vega 64.
System Suggestions
AMD Radeon RX 5700 8GB GDDR6 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). For the most demanding AAA games it should be ideally suited to 1440p. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
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.
