PowerColor RedDevil RX590 Graphics Card Review
Peter Donnell / 2 weeks ago
It’s been a long time coming, but we finally have an RX590 in the eTeknix office. Sure, it’s been on the market a while, but since we recently reviewed the Radeon VII, I’m really looking forward to this. We tested the flagship AMD card two months after most sites, which means we had some advantages. Newer drivers, more game updates, and a few other tweaks. Overall, the Radeon VII performed far better than we saw at launch. Now I’m also hoping to see the same thing happen with the RX590.
The PowerColor cards come packed with a few cool features too. The massive triple slot cooler means big cooling performance. Larger dual ball bearing fans will provide big air flow. Dual BIOS for overclocking, bigger heatpipes, and so much more. Of course, all this comes on a factory overclocked card with the potential to push even higher with our own overclocks. So, let’s grab the box and take a closer look.
