AORUS RX 570 4GB Graphics Card Review - Mid Range Champ?

Final Thoughts

 

If I were to review the Radeon RX 570 from purely a performance perspective, it wouldn't be a glowing review. It would be a good review, but I wouldn't have positive things to say about a few parts of the card like power consumption. The RX 570 is using more power than the GTX 1080, and that's really not efficient at all.

Where AMD not only picks up its game but it saves gamers hundreds of dollars, is that their FreeSync-capable displays are much cheaper. This means you can pick up a graphics card like the GIGABYTE RX 570 AORUS that we have here to review, and couple it with a 24-inch 1080p 144Hz FreeSync monitor from Nixeus (their NX-VUE24A) for $239.99 and you have a monster GPU/monitor combo that makes the GIGABYTE RX 570 AORUS an incredible buy.

 

Comparing the 24-inch 1080p 144Hz FreeSync monitor against the same size, native resolution, and refresh rate - but with G-Sync, it would cost you $390.99. This is a huge $150 more expensive, making the RX 570/FreeSync combo beyond potent, it destroys the value for money of a GTX 1060/G-Sync combo.

 

 

GIGABYTE has placed its Radeon RX 570 AORUS perfectly, if we take power consumption out of the argument, the RX 570 AORUS + FreeSync monitor combo is potent. Games like Prey, Battlefield 1, Overwatch, League of Legends, CS:GO, and many other games will run at 1080p/1440p without a problem.

The Bottom Line: GIGABYTE fills out its RX 500 series with the Radeon RX 570 AORUS, one of the best price/performance offerings, especially when bundled with a FreeSync display which is $150+ cheaper than the G-Sync alternative at this price.
