Early overclocking results for AMD's RX 590 look promising 

AMD's RX 590 graphics cards are on the way, and so far the graphics card's early overclocking results have revealed some impressive overclocking results. 

Two RX 590 graphics cards have appeared on the 3DMARK database, courtesy of TUM-APISAK on Twitter, revealing a PowerColor model with a clock speed of 1,576MHz and an XFX model with a core clock speed of 1,580MHz. These stock clocks are significantly higher than AMD's RX 580 series graphics cards, with overclocking enabling further performance advantages. 

Two overclocking results for these PowerColor and XFX graphics cards were also uncovered, revealing clock speeds of 1,645MHz and 1,680MHz respectively, both of which are impressive results, especially after considering the RX 590's already high base clock speeds.

If these reported results are accurate, AMD's gamble with 12nm has paid off, resulting in a clock speed advantage that is unseen on even the highest factory overclocks on an RX 580. Remember that AMD's reference Polaris RX 480 released with a boost clock of 1266MHz, showcasing exactly how far Polaris has come over its lifespan.

I bet it's going to be a furnace.Quote

How come? Polaris has been pretty decent in terms of power consumption.

If those clocks are accurate it's actually quite a competitive product.Quote

It's the boost it needs to beat the 1060 more often than not. It's a good thing. I don't think it'll be much worse in terms of power consumptionQuote

I kinda have a feeling that it is too late. This is how it was supposed to be years back at launch to give customers proper alternative. With Pascal, and Vega prices dropping now it needs to be dirt cheep to be viable.Quote

The RX480 was in a much better position than the GTX1060 at launch (Roughly same performance for about £50 less), for about a week until they were suddenly out of stock everywhere and prices began to skyrocket. If this had launched 2 years ago it wouldn;t have done jack for AMDs competitive footing, if anything it could have made it worse with the mining craze. As long as it can price match a 1060 I don't think they'll have any issues with sales or competing with their own products.Quote
