While technically a new GPU, the Radeon RX 590 is in essence the same RX 580 with a 15% overclock. What we have here is Polaris 20 XT on the 12nm FinFET process, allowing for slightly better clock speeds. But what about pricing?
After a preliminar look at Battlefield V during the open beta phase, we're back to check out GPU performance for the official release of the game. Before we'd found solid performance from both AMD and Nvidia GPUs and to confirm this we're now benchmarking a total of 38 new and previous generation graphics cards.
The Radeon Adrenalin Edition Graphics Driver 18.11.1 brings performance improvements for the RX 580 and RX Vega 64 in games like Hitman 2 and Battlefield V, and more.
Today, we're once again doing a deep dive on graphics card pricing to provide you with the best value buys on the market right now. This is the third report we have compiled this year. We're now in early Q4 and graphics card manufacturers are facing a different challenge that could affect pricing, at least in the United States: the import tariffs implemented by Donald Trump.
Racing title Forza Horizon 4 is arriving to digital store shelves this week worldwide (October 2) and to work out what kind of GPU power you'll need to enjoy it we've tested about 50 graphics cards, so we have a big GPU benchmark incoming.
If you're playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey or Forza Horizon 4, the new Radeon Adrenalin driver (18.9.3) offers improved performance on these titles, FreeSync fixes, and more.
This week we were finally able to jump into Battlefield V for the first time, and of course, we spent more time benchmarking than we did enjoying the gameplay, so we have a few results for you... which we'll call a preview since we are testing the 'open beta' version of the game. The full thing is slated for release across major platforms in two months' time.
Recently two separate Reddit threads brought an interesting topic to discussion: if you hook up your FreeSync monitor to an AMD GPU display output, while your primary Nvidia GPU is still in your PC, it may be possible to use your Nvidia graphics card and take advantage of FreeSync.
Taking a page out of cooperative games such as Left 4 Dead and their own Zombie Army Trilogy, Rebellion is bringing us today 'Strange Brigade', a new co-op third-person shooter that is also part of AMD's "Raise The Game" bundle for those purchasing a Radeon RX Vega, RX 580 or RX 570 graphics card.
It's time to talk about graphics card pricing once again. Today we're exploring cards you can actually buy right now and at what prices, how that compares to previous months, which ones are the best value for money, and whether you should even buy one at all.
Today we're revisiting a mid-range GPU battle between the Radeon RX 570 4GB and GeForce GTX 1060 3GB. It's been a little over a year since we compared these two head to head in an extensive 28 game battle, so we thought it was about time to take another look now that GPU prices seem to be coming back down to more reasonable prices.
This is the second part of our "Needs to Fix" series and it's now AMD's turn. As the underdog, AMD has far more reason to play nice and you could argue they've been forced into doing many of the things we want Intel to do because of their smaller market share. We don't believe AMD is a saint, it's still a big company trying to accomplish what most businesses should: make money.
Radeon Adrenalin Edition 18.6.1 Hotfix aims to improve performance for Vermintide 2 on RX Vega 56 and Radeon RX 580 cards. The driver also fixes issues in World of Warcraft and World of Tanks.
Heat is an inevitable byproduct of work. Heat is also prevalent in electronics, and when it comes to graphics cards you can manage it using passive cooling, fans and even water. But when these solutions aren't working, your GPU has one more way to beat the heat: thermal throttling.
The new AMD Radeon Adrenalin Driver 18.5.1 is an important release that offers support for the Windows 10 April 2018 Update and Ryzen desktop processors with Radeon Vega graphics in addition to addressing several bugs.
FreeSync 2 was announced over a year ago but it's only recently that we're starting to see the its ecosystem expand with new display options. As HDR and wide-gamut monitors become more of a reality over the next year, there's no better time to discuss FreeSync 2 than now, when you can actually buy it.
Today we're checking out the state of the GPU market, what pricing and availability is like relative to various points in the past year, and what the trends in pricing are looking like. We'll also go through some performance figures to show which graphics cards make the most sense to purchase right now.
If you're looking to buy a new graphics card today, don't mind all the testing, marginal fps gains, power consumption figures, or overclocking potential. TechSpot's Best Graphics Cards is written to get a simple question answered: Given a certain budget, which is the graphics card you should buy?
