AMD's mid-range Radeon 500-series video cards are here

AMD's mid-range Radeon 500-series video cards are here”

According to Forbes, the Radeon RX 580 will be leading the pack, being on par with NVIDIA's 1060 GPU.The 500 series is not meant to be as ground-breaking as the 10-series of NVIDIA was, but is merely meant to act as a refresh of the already worn out 400 series of Radeon graphics cards.

Support for Radeon RX 570 Series Graphics. The best one of them all is the RX 580 which is the upgrade to the last year's RX 480.

The RX 570 is an overclocked RX 470 with the same 2048 stream processors but base clock speed boosted to 1168MHz and the boost clock speed boosted to 1244MHz. That's not much of an increase on the high end but it's a noticeable increase to baseline speeds, and AMD's partners can crank things even further with factory overclocks.

As noted by Engadget, the RX 480 is more than capable of Virtual Reality and 1080p/1440p gaming, but the RX 500 series of cards will take gaming to 60 frames per second and above. It's supposed to run flat out at 1266MHz, but in our testing of pretty much every AMD Radeon RX 480 we have found the GPU clock speed can not maintain that frequency consistently at default settings in most of our retail card reviews. It's hard to make any judgements, though, since AMD hasn't given us much in the way of specs for the RX 550: 8 compute units, 1,183MHz boost clock, 2GB GDDR5 and HDMI 2.0b. £80 or AU$130 for the RX 560 and £65 or AU$105 for the RX 550. Unfortunately, while we're still holding off for the latter, AMD has in the meantime made a decision to launch a new batch of GPUs in the RX 500 series to offer affordable and capable 1080p and 1440p gaming experiences. At 1080p, the RX 580 rendered at 86.2 fps, just above the 1060's 84.8 fps. The RX 560 is a 1024:64:16 design with a base clock of 1175MHz compared with the RX 460's 1090MHz, for a gain of 8 percent. You'll have to wait until May to see the RX 560, unfortunately.

The Aorus Radeon RX 570.

Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580. When targeting the same GPU temperature of 75 degrees Celsius, the Dual-X on SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 500 Series is up to 12 dbA quieter, while still achieving significantly lower components temperatures over the previous series. But the allure of the RX 500 series is no shinier than the RX400's, so I'm not sure why AMD expects people to suddenly see the light - unless it's counting on its 2017 FOMO marketing tactics.

Other than adding support for these new cards, the latest Crimson ReLive 17.4.3 release doesn't seem to offer a whole lot. Unusually, the Dual card runs its memory at just 7 GT/s like an RX 570 instead of the typical 8 GT/s for a fully-enabled RX 580. The top two graphics processors will be available starting today, while the RX 550 will be available from April 20 and the RX 560 will be available later in May.

The version we're testing today is Gigabyte's $180 Aorus Radeon RX 570, and it's a swanky one. So, while the RX 580 is clearly an upgrade, it is not in a different league altogether.
