RX570 Review Compilation Thread

Post by CA_Steve » Tue Apr 18, 2017 7:00 am

AMD fixed some bugs and sped up the Polaris RX 4xx series at the expense of TDP. Upside is they fixed the memory-not-downclocking-for-2D-loads-and-multimonitor problem.

In brief: 9-13% faster than RX 470. Very good 1080p/ ok 1440p, 150W TDP, but OEM stock OC'ed cards may use more at stress loads. HDMI 2.0b and Display Port 1.4(ready), DVI no longer includes analog VGA signals. Dimensions stated as: a" x b" x c" are from mfgr websites - others are from reviews. Slots between GTX 970 and GTX 1060 3GB.
