RX 590 Addresses $250-$400 Market Gap

What cards are there between the Radeon RX 570/580 and the GeForce GTX 1060 (3GB, 6GB, and new 6GB GDDR5X)... nothing. The next cards from there is the Radeon RX Vega 56, and GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1070 Ti. AMD points out that there is a $150 market gap between the RX 580/GTX 1060 and the Vega 56/GTX 1070, and they're right, there is a gap and that's where the Radeon RX 590 fits in.
