ASUS launch new Radeon RX 570 Expedition graphics card

ASUS has just unveiled their new Radeon RX 570 Expedition graphics card, and as you might notice this is a mid-range offering and not in the ROG Strix family of products, that could slide into that GPP from NVIDIA.


The new ASUS RX 570 Expedition features a dual-slot cooler, with GPU clocks of up to 1256MHz and its 8GB of GDDR5 sitting at 7Gbps.


ASUS has used a custom-designed unit with aluminum fin-stack cooler with two 8mm thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes that are cooled by a pair of 80mm fans.


ASUS says that with the fans cranked up the RX 570 Expedition will stay under 55C, and every card is put through 144 hours of 'extreme stress testing' (probably mining) before they're packaged up.

The card is powered by a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, while display output wise we have 1 x DP1.4, 1 x HDMI 2.0b, and 1 x DVI.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
