Asus shows off a quartet of Radeon RX 500 cards

Asus shows off a quartet of Radeon RX 500 cards

Support for Radeon RX 580 Series Graphics.

The RX 550 is the cheapest offering from the 500 series of graphics cards, starting at just $80. Known to be a full upgrade of the Radeon RX 400 series, what people could feel about the graphics card depends on what they choose. What sets it apart is the base and boost clock speeds.

The Radeon RX 560 will work at 1175MHz GPU base and 1275MHz GPU Boost clocks and come with 4GB of GDDR5 memory on a 128-bit memory interface. These factors combine to allow AMD to run the GPU at higher clock frequencies, with more stable voltage, and in turn gives more performance and higher overclocking potential.

Other partners will probably follow soon and we have already seen MSI's Radeon RX 580 Gaming series and Armor series graphics cards listed around so those should be officially announced soon. It's supposed to run flat out at 1266MHz, but in our testing of pretty much every AMD Radeon RX 480 we have found the GPU clock speed can not maintain that frequency consistently at default settings in most of our retail card reviews. It comes with eight compute units compared to sixteen in the RX 560 and has a boost clock speed of 1183 MHz.

The RX 560 and RX 570 are both iterative improvements of the RX 460 and RX 470 GPUs AMD launched almost a year ago.

Alongside the launch of the RX 580 and RX 570 video cards, AMD released a new version its Radeon Crimson ReLive software suite. The RX 480 only made its debut in June of 2016, but the Radeons are moving up the flagpole, and we have an Asus Strix RX 570 in our hands, with the test results to prove it. The RX 560 is priced at $99 and will be available in May.

AMD isn't doing anything fundamentally new with its RX 5xx refresh cycle, but both the RX 560 and RX 570 should be noticeably faster than their predecessors, improving the company's competitive stance against Team Green. The RX 560 is a 1024:64:16 design with a base clock of 1175MHz compared with the RX 460's 1090MHz, for a gain of 8 percent. We know it's built on a new GPU, codenamed Polaris 12, with a boost clock of 1175MHz, 512 cores, and 2GB of VRAM. Though, you'll notice the Radeon RX 570 has one fewer heat-pipe and lacks front and back-plates, so not all Twin Frozr VI coolers are created equal.

All SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 580 and RX 570 cards feature an 8-pin power connector. This GPU was not available in the Radeon RX 400 series and AMD did not have a similar GPU since Oland-base Radeon R7 250. It is literally named "Golden Sample" on the box and has a higher retail price than RX 580 MSRP, coming in at $270 MSRP.

Word has it that the Red Devil will feature 1400+ MHz clocks. The video showcases how the high-end graphics card would look like upon release. All told, the Radeon RX 580 offers up a total of 6.17 TFLOPs of compute performance with up to 256GB/s of peak memory bandwidth.
