On Thursday we had an announcement from AMD that there will be a new variant of its Radeon RX graphics card. Based on what we know from the company it seems that the core clock speed of Radeon RX 590 will be higher than that of the RX 580. Moreover, the new version of the card is also supposed to deliver up to 20% more performance per dollar than the other graphics cards.
What do we know about the new GPU
It appears that, just like the older RX 580, the basis of the new GPU is the fourth-generation Graphics Core Next architecture. However, the Radeon RX 590 is using a 12-nanometer process, which is smaller than RX 580’s. The new Radeon graphics card is already available and it can be purchased from several vendors, such as Asus, Sapphire, XFX and PowerColor. When it comes to its price, the Radeon RX 590 can be purchased for $279.
Black Friday Offer – Here’s what you can get this month from AMD
Here’s the good part about buying select AMD graphics card: you can get almost $180 in games for free. Since Black Friday is almost here, AMD mentioned that it will offer two or three anticipated games for those who purchase either a Radeon RX 590 GPU or a PC powered by a RX. So how does it work? Well, it looks like what you can receive from the company depends on which version you will end up buying. You will have the option to get a free download of Devil May Cry 5, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 or Resident Evil 2. The first two games are expected to be released in March 2019, while the third one is coming in January 2019.
