In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 590 8GB.

The RX 590 has a 59 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GeForce RTX 2070. This results in the RX 590 providing 8.5 GTexel/s better texturing performance. 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 59 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce RTX 2070, but the GeForce RTX 2070 has 32 more Render Output Units than the RX 590. As a result, the GeForce RTX 2070 exhibits a 43.2 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 less than a year after the GeForce RTX 2070, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

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 Radeon RX 590 8GB and the GeForce RTX 2070 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce RTX 2070 has 192 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 590, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce RTX 2070 is massively better than the RX 590.

Both the Radeon RX 590 8GB and the GeForce RTX 2070 have 2304 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GeForce RTX 2070 is 3940 and by the RX 590 is 3940. Knowing that the shader performance of the GeForce RTX 2070 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The Radeon RX 590 8GB requires 175 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2070 requires 175 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 590 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GeForce RTX 2070. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

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 The GeForce RTX 2070 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Turing Architecture. This card has also been rumoured to be called the GeForce GTX 2070 or the GeForce GTX 1170. Architecture It equips a cut-down Turing GPU Codenamed GT104 which is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 16 SM activated, offering 2304 CUDA Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It is equipped with 288 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU The central unit runs at 1410 MHz and goes up to 1710 MHz, in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448GB/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 175W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector. Performance Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 2070 suggests it will be as fast as the Nvidia Titan Xp, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2070 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a high-end processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
