How well can the Radeon RX 590 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB run games
AMD Radeon RX 590 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the Radeon RX 590 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2021 popular games. This short Radeon RX 590 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. This graphics hardware can run 762 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the Radeon RX 590 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB is predicted to run Forza Horizon 5 with reasonable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 50 frames per second. Comparing this to Back 4 Blood which is getting reasonable results, where it averages 50 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Resident Evil 8, which is running at 31 frames per second.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon RX 590 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Forza Horizon 5 and predict it will be playable. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 101 FPS, Medium: 79 FPS, High: 53 FPS and Ultra: 38 FPS. We added Back 4 Blood to our tests and saw it was playable with a 38 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Resident Evil 8 which got 24 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a Radeon RX 590 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB is a suitable graphics card for this larger screen res. In some cases we might expect some graphics option tweaks down from Ultra to High to help improve FPS stability when gaming at 1440p.

How many years will the Radeon RX 590 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 590 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 590 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti which is 40% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 975 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB which is 33% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 965 games from the most demanding games today.

The new AMD Radeon RX 590 is an uprated version of the RX 580 on the smaller 12nm process node. The Radeon RX 590 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB is a mid-range Radeon RX 500 Series graphics card and considered great price to performance for gaming at 1080p.

This RX 590 is the 8GB version.

The Radeon RX 590 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB is a dual-slot video card with a dual-fan (90mm) Windforce 2X cooling solution, RGB Fusion 2.0 lighting, and a solid metal backplate. 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 1469 MHz base clock and goes up to 1560 MHz when in boost and turbo mode, providing a small 1% overclock versus the reference model.

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 Radeon RX 590 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB has a power TDP requirement of 175W. This means it will require at least a 500W PSU with one dedicated 8-pin connector.

Performance
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 Radeon RX 590 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440, although is ideally suited for 1080p gaming. We recommend a high-end processor, like the new Ryzen R5 and at least 12GB of RAM for optimal gaming performance.
