With the release driver on hand for the Radeon VII we decided to go back to the test bench. Today we have over 30 games to check out, including the new World of Tanks update as well as Apex Legends.
The Radeon VII is AMD's latest GPU offering aimed at gamers. CEO Lisa Su has stated that the Radeon VII performs competitively with Nvidia’s RTX 2080 and as such will go for the same $700. It’s believed AMD’s not turning a profit on these things, even at this price. But is it any good?
It's time to evaluate the Radeon RX 570 all over again, but this time the contenders will be the RX 580 and the GeForce GTX 1060 on 3GB and 6GB flavors. We're going to put all these mainstream GPUs head to head in 36 games at 1080p and 1440p to see which comes out on top in terms of performance and value.
If you're after an inexpensive graphics card to play games, which way do you go? Currently $150 will get you either the Radeon RX 570 4GB or the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, both solid options that have been out for a long time, but not necessarily at this attractive price point.
