RX 580 or RX 590

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey!

I have an i5 7400. I'm worried about the bottleneck. 

RX 580 NITRO+(8Gb) OR 590 Fatboy? (8GB)

The prices in my country are the same.

Will there be any bottleneck with the 580?Will there be any with the 590?

I'd also look into the used market for Vega cards, as they seem to be a steal atm in many parts of the world.

For the reasons @Origami Cactus stated, I would personally pick the 580 Nitro+ . I owned a 480 Nitro+ at one point and it was one of the best 480 cards produced. The 590 Fatboy is a relatively mediocre card and I'd stick with the better built 580 card.

Beleive it or not, the 1660 is cheaper than the 580 and 590 nitro. At least here in Romania. Isn't the 1660 too strong for the I5 7400? Someone with the same setup said, for example in forza he had to cap the fps, so the game won't stutter.

Will the I5 7400 bottleneck the 1660?

It will be fine in 99% of the games, if you play at 1080p 60fps.

So get the 1660, if it is not a terrible model like the fatboy.

If you want to get an AMD card, sapphire Nitro is one of the best models.

Even if it bottlenecks: if it's more powerful and cheaper/same price, then there's no reason not to get it

Seeing as AMD cards one of there defining features is that they get FreeSync at no cost. Ya sure Nvidia is trying to roll out there shit version of it. But they've got a long way to go. 

 

So if this guy wants frame syncing which I'm pretty sure he would, then AMD is the right option for the GPU. There is no reason to go with a nvidia card even if its cheaper or more powerful. All for the simple fact that u have to pay extra either upfront or in the future to get G sync. Its bullshit and u wonder why Nvidia falls on there face with regards to the 2060 and below.

 

 


If u want a response then YOU'D best Quote me so I can see it.

Shouldn't have to say this but the few ruin it for them all......

I don't use any kind of syncs myself, but FreeSync has become compatible w/NVIDIA, so it's still an option - I'm not huge on the details, since it's irrelevant to me, but I think it's far from perfect compared to actual V-Sync or G-Sync natively

@danisuba10 location? Suba is quite common familyname in Hungary.. Oh I see now, Romania. Sorry for not reading the whole thread

 

I'd rather not choose RX590, because, it has a very high TDP and Power consumption, yet barely outperforms the 580. NitroPlus is a very good model, great cooling.

 

Have you looked into GTX1660? Roughly aequivalent to RX590, but with half the tdp-energy need...
