AMD RX570 2019 Review vs GTX 1650 Cards

Test Setup and Overclocking

MSI RX570 Armor 8GB 2019 Re-review vs GTX Turing Cards

Test Setup

We're only testing at 1080P today as that is obviously the target resolution for anyone gaming at this price point. We've also trimmed the RTX 2070 and upwards off of our graphs because it's hardly teaching you anything to show that flagship models are better than mainstream options.

Overclocking

Whenever you're buying a card in the lower echelons of the various models on the market there is always a desire to push the silicon as far as it will go to extract the maximum amount of free performance that you can, and to this end the MSI RX570 Armor overclocks like an absolute champ. It reminds us of the old days when you used to buy an HD4850 and push it to HD4870 levels. Perhaps best of all the modern tools available to you make the overclocking process as smooth and simple as possible. Even if you've never touched overclocking it wont be more than an afternoon before you've unlocked plenty of hidden potential.

Seen proper gaming models of these & RX470's drop below £80 on eBay recently. Think my HD7870XT has finally met its end (Have to thank you for that one, still remember the Club3D joker review, absolute steal of a card).Quote

Just some constructive feedback:
The graphs are in my opinion far too bloated. You should have really cut down the amount of content on the graphs. Anything above a 580/1660 SHOULD NOT have been displayed. It's worse for mobile users and makes it harder to read. To further clean up the cards not focused in the review but are being displayed, only 1080p performance should be shown. We don't need to know a 1660's 4k or 1440p performance to make a conclusion on 570 vs 1650.

Also the review is focused on the 570 vs the 1650 cards and the colors(blue/green) only show for the 570. Now it's still not difficult to distinguish between the two, but two better options could have improved the graphs overall. 1) If ignoring the above feedback, display only 570 vs 1650 and use red/green colors. 2) Keeping how it is with more cards displayed, use the red/green colors to distinguish them for both 570/1650.

You did a great job with the Division 2 graph for example. That is almost exactly how they should be. Removing the 1440 and 4k results would make it exponentially better.

Lastly personally the graphs I think need a modern overhaul. They are aesthetically unmodern and older looking. Elevating the look of your graphs will really help to make the review shine.

Also a sidenote: You really should only benchmark Total War Warhammer 1/2 in DX11 mode. DX12 has issues and performance wise outside of benchmarks is unstable and inconsistent. There have been hundreds of threads on their personal forums with people complaining for years and switching to dx11 has solved basically everything. It is not a reliable source of results and misinforms the reader.

Other than that, as usual, the actual information learned from your articles is still as valuable as ever. The 570 still has some grunt left and compared to the 1650 its by far without question what everyone in that price range should be buying.Quote

Picked up a 570 (Sapphire one - single fan and 6 pin) to re-purpose an ivybridge XPS8500 machine for my nephew. At 1080p I was very impressed with performance and especially the noise levels. Great card and I definitely recommend a 570 for 1080p duties (just over £100 with 2 games is a steal) .Quote

That 570 is giveing the 1060 a run for its money, fantastic card for a £100/120 video card.Quote
