AMD Radeon RX 580 PowerColor Red Devil Golden Sample

Aorus Radeon RX 580

All that might be changing now, as AMD is showing off a new range of graphics cards, that will act as a kind of appetizer to the upcoming Radeon Vega architecture.

If you can't beat 'em, offer a really cheap alternative.

Although it is basically a rebranded Radeon RX 400 series, there are some novelties and, thanks to 14nm manufacturing process maturity, the Radeon RX 500 series graphics cards have higher clocks, at least when compared to Radeon RX 400 series counterparts. I landed back on Earth when the title of the next email mentioned the RX 500 series.

Just like previous year, AMD is targeting dedicated gamers who are still running older GPUs, so it's placing a priority on affordability. You can actually buy the things, for one-the RX 470 and RX 480 were understocked (and therefore, overpriced) for months.

Radeon RX 580 and 570 graphics cards are available on sale today and RX 550 graphics card will be available by April 20th. It is literally named "Golden Sample" on the box and has a higher retail price than RX 580 MSRP, coming in at $270 MSRP. Instead they still fit into more of a "reasonable performance for a reasonable price" mold, offering less expensive alternatives to Nvidia's competing models. Speed-wise, the RX 580 hits a 1,257MHz base clock speed accelerating to a 1,340MHz boost. AMD seems to have bypassed this whole issue by working closely with its industry partners which will be releasing custom designed, factory overclocked cards that should run faster and cooler than the reference design. The RX 500 series represents a "re-spin" of RX 400 architecture assuredly. You'll miss out on VR! The card's equipped with two of Gigabyte's Windforce fans, over a decently sized heat sink imbued with four copper pipes that directly contact the GPU.

United Kingdom election talk builds ahead of surprise statement from May
Under the Fixed-Term Parliaments Act, introduced under the last coalition government, the next election was not due until 2020. After what we can assume was a pleasant Easter break, May stepped into her office this morning with one thing on her mind...

Both the 1060 and the RX 580 ran Ashes of the Singularity at 51.7 fps at 1080p, and came within one tenth of a frame (45.7 fps on the 1060, 45.6 fps on the RX 580) at 1440p. So if you're in the market for a new card, there's that. AMD is claiming that the RX 560 should be on store shelves by early May with an SEP of $100 for a 2GB card.

According to PC World, the RX 580 will be available for $200 for the 4GB variant, while the 8GB variant will cost $230.

Smooth, stutter-free gaming with Radeon FreeSync - Radeon FreeSync 2 monitors harness low-latency, high-brightness pixels, excellent black levels and a wide color gamut to display high dynamic range (HDR) content, and feature Low Framerate Compensation (LFC) enabling stutter-free gaming when framerates dip below a monitor's refresh rate, all in a completely plug-and-play experience that eliminates the need to tweak settings in software or on the monitor.

The Radeon RX 560, when compared to the RX 460, is a bit different. The Radeon RX 570 Gaming X will boost up to 1280MHz, while the RX 580 Gaming X will boost up to 1395MHz and features 8.1Gb/s memory.

The suggested retail price of the Radeon RX 580 8/4GB is set at USA $229/$199, while the Radeon RX 570 4GB has a suggested retail price of U.S. $169.
