AMD Radeon RX 570 (Desktop)

The AMD Radeon RX 570 is a mainstream graphics card for desktop PCs. It was announced in April 2017 and is based on the Polaris 20 chip. It is a refresh of the RX 470 and uses the same chip as the RX 580 (and 580X) with less shaders. The clock speeds are specified as 1,168 - 1,244 (Boost). The VRAM is connected by a 256 Bit bus and clocks at 1,750 MHz (effective 7,000 MHz) which leads to a 224 GB/s memory bandwidth.

At launch, the performance of the Radeon RX 570 was slightly below a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060. Therefore, the GPU is best used for 1920x1080 and high detail settings for demanding games of 2019.

The TDP of the Radeon RX 570 is specified with 120 Watts by AMD, so a single 6-pin power connector is sufficient.
