PowerColor Red Devil RX 590 Review



AMD have updated their RX580 to the 12nm FinFET process and, in the form of the PowerColor Devil, we put it to the test.

I really like it, but it's a little too expensive. For £299 atm you can get a really nice looking '56.

Which kinda makes the £269 a bit too much. Like, £30 or so too much.

Edit, my manners. Thanks for the review Tom. It's nice and thorough, with plenty of pics and good info

Agreed, a 56 would be better but once you get to a 56 you can they argue about a 1070 and its never ending. 56's also require more power and better cooling blah blah blah

For the money this is a cracking 1080p card and would respond well to a freesync monitor too. Out of the two Ive tested this is by far the better option of the two.

£30 lower for me. It'll happen too I reckon

But yeah agreed, still a great little card. Must also bear in mind this is like top end (well, other than the Strix LOL edition that is no doubt inbound lol).

That will probably cost more than that 56 unless they uuse the older style cooler

haha no doubt dude. It'll probably cost as much as a cheap 1070.

Hopefully they will use the older cheaper cooler though, kinda like the one on the GTX 970 that actually wasn't that expensive at all.

Aren't they bundling this one with three games? It might be worth it for someone who's upgrading from GCN and doesn't need more than good 1080p performance.

Yeah, I'd say this product is less about AMD showing dominance, or even capability. I think it's just a way to get the last of the few sideliners or those jumping aboard to PC gaming for the first time to go team red. The more AMD have on their side the better in the long run.
