AMD Radeon RX 570 (Laptop) vs AMD Radeon RX 590 (Desktop)

AMD Radeon RX 570 (Laptop)

► remove

The AMD Radeon RX 570 for laptops (RX 570M) is a mid-range Polaris 10 gaming graphics card for laptops. It was first shown at CES 2017 in the Samsung Odyssey gaming notebook as an alternative to the GeForce GTX 1070. According to preliminary specifications from Samsung, the supposed RX 570M will ship in 4 GB and 8 GB GDDR5 VRAM variants. The RX 570M is expected to be a rebrand of the old RX 470 for laptops with the possibility of small bumps to the clock speed and/or shader count. As a result, gaming performance should be similar to its desktop version. The Nvidia equivalent will likely be the GeForce GTX 1060 or GeForce 1050 Ti based on performance predictions.

More information on the Polaris architecture and its features can be found here.

AMD Radeon RX 590 (Desktop)

► remove

The AMD Radeon RX 590 is a desktop graphics card positioned in the mid-range of 2018. It is manufactured in 12nm and offers 2,304 shader cores and 8 GB GDDR5 VRAM using a 256 Bit memory interface (8 GHz, 256 GB/s).

The RX590 uses the new Polaris 30 chip, which is a 12nm version of the Polaris 20 chip of the RX 580. Thanks to the improved process, the clock rates of the RX 590 can be higher at a similar power consumption. 

This leads to a 10 percent higher performance compared against the older Radeon RX 580 and therefore the RX 590 is faster than the GeForce GTX 1060. This means that the card is best suited for 1080p gaming in max. details (of 2018 games).

The power consumption is rated at 175 Watt and therefore 10 Watts below the Radeon RX 580 (185 Watt).
