Radeon RX 570 XFX RS Black 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

First off we should point out that this is not the new AMD Vega graphics card line. These new AMD Radeon RX 500 series cards are an uprated version of the RX 400 series that they are replacing. This RX 570 graphics card is one of the higher performance models from the new AMD Radeon RX 500 Series.

The AMD Radeon RX 570 XFX RS Black 8GB graphics card released in April 2017 as an AMD performance gaming graphics card. This card competes against Nvidia's GTX 1050 Ti and replaces the older Radeon RX 470. As a Polaris refresh, the RX 570 runs at a slightly faster clock speed than the RX 470.

It is powered by the 14nm Pollaris 20 GPU, which has 2048 shader processing units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

The central unit runs at 1168MHz and goes up to 1328MHz, when the boost mode is triggered.

The AMD Radeon RX 570 XFX RS Black 8GB comes with a 8GB frame buffer of GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8+6-pin connector.

The AMD Radeon RX 570 XFX RS Black 8GB has been built as a Mid/High performance graphics card for 2017. It will run most triple AAA titles released during 2017 on medium to high graphics at 1080p screen resolution. With adjustments and lowering anti aliasing this RX570 8GB card can confidently maintain 60+ frames per seconds on high graphic settings at 1080p. Moving to 1440p screen resolution and the graphics card may need to be adjusted down to medium in order to maintain 50-60+ fps.

System Suggestions
The RX 570 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a mid range R5 Ryzen processor and at least 8GB of system memory for optimal gaming performance from the RX 570.
