How much faster is the RX 590?

While AMD has not officially revealed their RX 590 graphics card, the evidence is quickly mounting to support its existence, with the graphics card now appearing on the Final Fantasy XV benchmarking webpage, revealing a significant performance leap over the RX 480 and RX 580. 

When compared to a standard RX 480, the RX 590 offers a performance uplift of between 10% and 25%, making it notably faster than both AMD's RX 480 and RX 580, allowing the RX 590 to close the performance gap between the RX 580 and GTX 1060, or surpass it at specific graphical settings. 

This performance leap will heat things up in the mid-range graphics card market, giving AMD an edge over their competition's ageing Pascal offerings. If these kinds of performance leaps are available in other games, it is likely that the RX 590 will be able to surpass the GTX 1060 in most of today's PC games, where the RX 580 and GTX 1060 typically offer similar performance levels.

At this time there is no trace of Nvidia's RTX 2060, which makes it likely that we will be seeing the GTX 1060 remain as Nvidia's mid-range competitor for quite some time. Rumour has it that Nvidia plans to refresh their GTX 1060 series with GDDR5X memory, which could give the series enough memory bandwidth to compete favourably with the RX 590.

Hey, didn't I mention it was a 980 competitor. :P

Though on a more serious note, I hope it's priced right and available. Would be a perfect card for my setup except for the G-Sync monitor, which I can of course flip.Quote

Some websites are also reporting that the 66AF:C1 in the chart might be the rumored Vega 20, most seem to source the videocardz link below.

I really hope this isn't a higher clocking 580.. Need something more, like more CUs!Quote

From all available info so far the 590 is shaping up to be a 12nm higher clocked version of the 14nm 580, Same amount of cores etc...Quote

I don't think AMD has any reason to spend money on masks for larger CU Polaris dies. It should really be looking to roll out NCU/Vega-derived chips if it wants to do a full refresh. But it looks like its only competition will be more GTX1060's now with slightly faster memory, so more CUs or a new architecture are both excessively expensive responses when the clock bump/node shift alone will retake the performance advantage.Quote
