AMD XFX RX 590 Review

Third, the theoretical performance test: 3DMark beyond GTX 1060 20%

The test platform is as follows:

The two AMD graphics cards we tested were provided by XFX. They were XFX RX 590 Black Wolf and XFX RX580 8G Black Wolf Evolution. The RX580 frequency is 1411MHz, which is 71MHz higher than the public version of 1340MHz.

In order to maximize the graphics performance and prevent the processor from becoming a test bottleneck, we chose the i9-9900K platform and overclocked it to 5.0GHz.

The memory uses the GALAXY HOF II DDR4-4000 8GBx2 package. In the test, the XMP is turned on to maintain the 4000MHz frequency, and the timing is 19-25-25-45 CR2.
