AMD will be rebooting their Radeon RX 400 series graphics cards with the new Radeon RX 500 series, with a slight bump in performance, and a nice dent off the price. Now we have some leaked benchmark results on the new RX 580, RX 570, and RX 550 cards.
Radeon RX 580: 4GB/8GB = $199/$249
First off, the Radeon RX 580 will have a faster GPU clock compared to the RX 480, with 2304 stream processors, 144 TMUs, 32 ROPs. The GPU will be clocked at 1340MHz boost on the reference Radeon RX 580, capable of 6.17 TFLOPs of compute performance, in both 4GB and 8GB models - with GDDR5 clocked at 8Gbps on a 256-bit memory bus.
AMD will price the Radeon RX 580 4GB at $199, and the Radeon RX 580 8GB at $249 - compared to the $299 price of the RX 480 8GB when it launched last year. This will provide AMD with a huge win in the $199-$249 market, especially against the GTX 1060.
The RX 580 here was overclocked to 1500MHz, while the 8GB of GDDR5 had a 121MHz overclock.
Radeon RX 570: 4GB/8GB = $149/$199
Next up, the Radeon RX 570 which will also come in 4GB and 8GB models - both GDDR5-based at 7Gbps. It should feature 1200Mhz boost, with just over 5 TFLOPs of performance - but at a price of just $149-$199 for the 4GB and 8GB models.
Another huge win for AMD in the mid-range market, as the RX 570 4GB will be massively popular in eSports markets and the expanding Chinese market.
Next up, the Radeon RX 570 benchmarked.
Radeon RX 550: 2GB/4GB = $99 or less
We should expect the Radeon RX 550 to be the lowest-end RX 500 seris card, with 2GB and 4GB variants - and prices of up to $99. AMD will not require a PCIe power connector on the RX 550, so this will be another massive win for eSports/LAN cafe markets, as the power requirements are super low.
Lastly, some 3DMark results for the RX 550.
