    VideoCardz says these RX 590 cards will cost $279 and upwards with the 'free' games bundle.

    Going by the $ = £ conversion, that's a little steep.

    with all honesty I am thinking of switching to AMD, the reason, G-Sync, you buy a decent Geforce card then you have to fork out another 400 pounds for a decent monitor to go with the card.

    Well for me the rumoured price for this is too close to the price I could easily pay for a Vega 56. https://www.overclockers.co.uk/power...gx-193-pc.html

    I would look on Black Friday to see what Vega deals you can get. Seems strange to be releasing a GPU near Black Friday when any launch price is going to look bad

    Re: PowerColor launches the Red Devil RX 590 graphics card

    Freesync is definitely worth it. I'm using an rx480 to drive a 2k display and i'm able to game on slightly older titles (Just cause 3, sniper elite 3) with just one individual setting turned down from max and by keeping in the freesync range its so smooth. I wouldn't want to try the same on a 1060 as you'd get nasty tearing unless you could turn down the settings enough to get vsync. Its like a free speed boost vs nvidia and I don't think pushed enough.

    Have to agree. These need to come in at £200 ish to make any sense.

    If the RX580 costs £200 or less, the RX590 needs to start at £250 to make any sense

    If you have a r290, it would probably be worth holding on for Navi next year.. A Navi 12 for £300 or less would be a decent upgrade.

    Re: PowerColor launches the Red Devil RX 590 graphics card

    In short I have been on free upgrades due to mining, I had 2 290x's, sold one to a miner for £240, bought the RX580 from amazon for £202 (due to thread on here pointing out preorder prices), instantly sold the second 290x for £220.

    So the plan is to get another RX580 cheap and essentially upgrade from 2 290x's to 2 RX580's while making a profit.

    Yeah, either freesync or gsync are pretty much a requirement IMO for any gamer now. If you don't have it setup now definitely shoot for it with your next build/upgrade.
