Recommended System Requirements
Game Radeon RX 590 8GB GeForce GTX 1080 Ti

In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 590 8GB.

The RX 590 has a 65 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1080 Ti, but the GTX 1080 Ti has 80 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 590. As a result, the GTX 1080 Ti exhibits a 109 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the RX 590. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX 590 has a 65 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1080 Ti, but the GTX 1080 Ti has 56 more Render Output Units than the RX 590. As a result, the GTX 1080 Ti exhibits a 80.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the RX 590. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 590 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 1080 Ti, and so the RX 590 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 1080 Ti.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GTX 1080 Ti has 3072 MB more video memory than the RX 590, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1080 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1080 Ti has 228.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 590, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is massively better than the RX 590.

The Radeon RX 590 8GB has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has 3584. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 590 is 3560 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is 7654. The GTX 1080 Ti having 4094 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 590.

The RX 590 transistor size technology is 4 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1080 Ti. This means that the RX 590 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1080 Ti.

The Radeon RX 590 8GB requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti requires 220 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 590 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 1080 Ti. The GTX 1080 Ti requires 70 Watts more than the RX 590 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1080 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 590.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The new AMD Radeon RX 590 is an uprated version of the RX 580 on the smaller 12nm process node.

This RX 590 is the 8GB version.

Architecture
It equips a GPU codenamed Polaris 30, which has 2304 shader processing units, 144 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The RX 590 8GB central processing unit runs at 1545MHz and goes up to (xx)MHz when in boost and turbo mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 2000MHz.

Power Consumption
The RX 590 8GB has a power TDP requirement of 150W. This means it will require at least a 500W PSU with one dedicated 8-pin connector.

Performance
Early benchmarks indicate that the AMD Radeon RX 590 8GB will be around 10-15% faster than the Nvidia GTX 1060 in terms of gaming performance, and around 6% faster than the Radeon RX 580 model it is replacing.

System Suggestions
The new Radeon RX 590 8GB releases on the 30th October 2018 and is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a high-end processor, like the new Ryzen R5 and at least 12GB of RAM for optimal gaming performance.
Overview
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is the top 1000 Series graphics card and considered an Enthusiast graphics card based on the Pascal architecture.

Architecture
The Pascal architecture aims for twice as much Performance as the Maxwell Architecture and introduces support for second gen HBM.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed P102-300-A1 which has 3584 Shader Processing Units, 224 TMUs and 88 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1480MHz and goes up to 1584MHz, in Boost mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 11.2GB frame buffer of second gen GDDR5X memory, through a 352-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1376MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 220W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with 2 power connectors, a 6-pin and an 8-pin connector.

System Suggestions
