AMD has officially announced the launch of the new Radeon RX 590 graphics card based on the 12nm Polaris GPU.
The novelty in the catalog will take a place between the “predecessor” RX 580 and more advanced RX Vega 56.
The map is based on 2304 stream processors, 32 blocks for raster operations and 144 blocks for texture processing. The cores operate at the following frequencies – 1.469 / 1.545 GHz, while the amount of memory (such as GDDR5) is 8 GBefficiently operating at the frequency 8 GHz. bus on 256-bit. As a result, the card can handle video streams at speeds up to 256 GB / s.
This video card will be brought to the market by AIB partners, while consumers will not see the reference sample released by the developer company.
The passport power of the device does not exceed 225 W, which is slightly more than that of the younger RX 580 models. The video card supports a number of popular interfaces for connecting third-party sources.
The price of the video card in the store
MSRP is $ 279… Since there will be no release of the reference model, there will obviously not be such a cost at first. True, when buying the video card itself, a person gets 3 popular games for free.
Prices in the Citilink store:
- SAPPHIRE AMD Radeon RX 590 — 23 390 р.
- POWERCOLOR AMD Radeon RX 590 — 23 390 р.
Many foreign resources have already published tests and scrupulous reviews of the 590 model. True, in some tests the 590 slightly outperforms the 580, but more often the difference is almost invisible.
Test under load in mining
To achieve maximum efficiency in mining, use the latest versions of mining software. At the moment, there are no optimized versions for new video cards.
Pre-test indicators when mining different coins:
- Ethereum (Etherum, Ethereum Classic Ubiq, Expanse, Pirl, Ellaism, Metaverse, Callisto) – 33 Mh/s;
- Zcash (Bitcoin Gold, Anon, BitcoinZ) – 24.0 Mh/s;
- CryptoNightV8 (Currency, MoneroOriginal, Dinastycoin) – 950 H / s;
- ProgPow (Bitcoin Interest) – 8.5 Mh/s;
- X16R (Ravencoin, Gravium, HelpTheHomeless, Motion, Nicehash-X16R) – 8.3 Mh/s.
Summing up, we can say that collecting new mining farms from RX 590 video cards, however, like from other models, is now almost unprofitable. It should be borne in mind that trends in the cryptocurrency industry are changing rapidly and you must always be aware of the latest events in order to make money.
