The rumours were true. As per our earlier report, AMD’s Radeon RX 590 graphics card was officially launched today.
Just as reported earlier as well, the GPU of the RX 590 is built upon AMD’s new 12nm die lithography that, features 2034 Steam Processors, and 36 Compute Units. Beyond that, the card still sports 8GB GDDR5 graphics memory, which is spread across a 256-bit memory bus.
Like all Radeon RX series graphics cards, the RX 590 comes with support for AMD’s FreeSync anti-screen tearing technology. In terms of performance, AMD says that the card comes with 15% higher boost clockspeeds and higher peak compute performance than its predecessor, the Radeon RX 580. Making it even more ideal as a graphics card for gaming who game at either Full HD or 1440p resolutions.
The AMD Radeon RX 590 is already available globally, with an SRP of US$279 (~RM1168). The card will not be sold with an AMD reference cooler design, but as these things go, you can purchase the card fitted with custom-cooling solutions from brands such as ASUS, PowerColor, and Sapphire.
