Biggest moments in gaming this summer
AMD seems to have launched a series of four Polaris 20 XTX RX 590 GPUs in the Chinese market.
In addition to AMD's launch of cheaper graphics cards, this move is very interesting, because it shows that AMD has not completely transferred its production to the 7nm process of the Ryzen CPU and the Radeon GPU. Although this was confirmed at the recent AMD Financial Analyst Day 2020. It is unclear whether they will liquidate excess inventory through a slight rebrand or actively make new low-cost cards.
Among these graphics cards is the Radeon RX 590 GME made by XFX. Apart from the comments from the Chinese website Expreview, there is nothing to do. The
card has an increased clock speed of 1460 MHz, 2304 cores, 8GB of GDDR5 memory, and uses 14nm Polaris 20 XTX GPU. Since the non-GME XFX version of RX 590 uses 12nm Polaris 30, the name is somewhat confusing. XTX process , It can achieve an increase of 1600 MHz clock speed
. Interesting, because compared with the slower POWERCOLOR Red Dragon RX 590 GME 1380 MHz, the POWERCOLOR weaker RX 590 and 12nm Polaris 30 XTX can reach 1545 MHz. The suggestion is that the RX 590 GME may be more like the slightly overclocked RX 580, with a clock frequency of 1340 MHz, without any adjustments.
In the review of Expreview, the overclocking potential of the XFX RX 590 GME is not overly encouraging. Due to the fast pop-up problem, it is difficult for the card to push anything above 80 MHz.
No matter what AMD is doing, the review did not build the GPU in the best way, prompting consumers to turn to the more expensive RX 5500 XT as a more viable alternative with better performance and greater overclocking potential.
