XFX RX 590 Fatboy Review: Competitive Silicon, Weak Cooler

    We're reviewing the XFX RX 590 Fatboy and benchmarking the re-refreshed RX 590 GPU versus the competition.

    Find the XFX RX 590 FB on Amazon: geni.us/PCxYbq
    The XFX RX 590 Fatboy was previously disassembled in our video here: salafusali.com/v-video-wN0q-BiTve4.html
    There are two parts to a video card review: There's the silicon, which is the responsibility of AMD or NVIDIA, and the cooler, which is a mixture of responsibilities. The board partner sources fan suppliers, PCB component suppliers, and hopefully has in-house engineers for cooler or power delivery engineering. The silicon for the RX 590 comes back to AMD, of course, with the cooler coming back to XFX. We are reviewing the XFX RX 590 from two angles: How is the RX 590 as a GPU, then how is the cooler as a solution for the GPU. Testing is primarily conducted for thermals, power, and gaming performance. We tested versus about 40 other items on the list, but the major ones include the RX 590 vs. GTX 1060, 1070, and Vega 56 (just for perspective).

Hey, whatever happened with that Async compute drama a couple years ago? Half the comments on that'd have you believe Nvidia was finished(!) because of it, but it seems to have turned into a big nothingburger...

Follower here, any chance you can do a new video on the sapphire radeon rx vega 64. Im one of the many who picked one up over the holidays, and all the work involved to use it to its potential is tiring. Between optional drivers from amd to undervolting and overclocking, not sure what the difinitive answer is from a reputable source. Thanks

Keep in mind that unless all test were done on the same cpu and same drivers, the 1% and 0.1% results you've got are unreliable. There's CPU offloading that's different with each gpu/cpu/driver and even bios combination.

Just a little thing. The numbers in benchmark cart overlap eachother. 590 is a midrange card, isnt necessary to show what RTX cards and nvlink can to do. In this case, if you remove the high-end performance from the list you earn space. I know, you are the Tech-Jesus and this is your channel, but in my opinnion this can be a good move.

Amd is incredible for budget rigs. I bought this card for a cheaper price than the rx 580. It was a upgrade for my old gtx 970 and I'm extremely happy with the performance of this card. Well worth the price i paid for it.

glad i returned my 580 for 1070ti, the 580 was heat soaking my well ventilated and cooled computer and randomly crashing upon alt tabbing out of games, i cant imagine how much of a space heater this 590 is.

I got this one only because I bought a prebuilt for 1000$ which was my budget (actually it was 600$ because I won about 400 dollars) . Came with a rx590 xfx, ryzen 2700x,2tb harddrive with 240gb Toshiba ssd, GB Ax370 motherboard, 16gb of geil potenza ram , asestek 550lc liquid cooler, 2 120mm fans and a bronze 80+ power supply, not a bad deal for 600. Def going to upgrade the ram, power supply first and possibly motherboard and graphics card later on down the line. Im mainly playing in 1080p so this build should hold up just fine for now. This was the best deal I could find without going over 1k.

Yeah not really understanding what AMD was thinking with this. I ended up going with the xfx rx580 xxx black edition for nearly half the cost ($157) runs great 75-80c 80% fan curve with a 1525/2100 OC on the GPU and VRAM. It will hold me over through the year until we hopefully get Navi.

Take a shot every time he mentions that the 580 2048SP is a 570. Not of alcohol, though. Take a shot at AMD, because they deserve it for such a deceptive product.

For budget gamers who game on 1080p 60hz monitors. This card is gold. Which is still a huge market. Anyone that is still using a 2gb card. This card is an amazing upgrade for 4th gen and 5th gen CPUs.

I would get a rx 580 over this with a decent overclock they is hardly any difference and the price is 30% lower. if I needed more power I would save some bucks and get 1070, really bad pricing on this gpu from amd taking advantage of lack of cards in sub 300$ mark, and people think AMD is their robin hood...

he said the non blower models are the ones worth buying. i've got an ASUS 1080 blower model. i thought blower models had their place if you dont want to recirculate hot air in your PC? they seem to be around the same price, so why arent they good?

I love how almost all amd cards have roughly a 25~50% lead over the direct competition when it comes to anything other than the AVG FPS.

4:50 can we just simply stop for a second and point out how absolutely ridiculous this has become. I thought Nvidia was all about making it easier for the consumer, less confusion and whatnot *cough* GPP *cough*. The new 2060 is shaping up to be even more confusing.

I game on my RX580 at 1080p in most games i play around 57-60 fps atm... but i play ffxiv and ark survival evolved and usually at medium settings on a cheep monitor with freesink or what ever its called. But any card more powerfully than my 580 would be totally useless in my system, as i am running a FX 6300 overclocked to 4ghz so im already hitting a pretty significant bottleneck lol.. of course having my OS on the 1T HDD i have doesn't help much ether, the same probably goes for my 16g ddr3 which runs at i think 1600 or so lol. But still, im pulling close enough to 60 fps with this older build, which means the 590 might be better if someone could find a way to keep it cool... but at that point it sounds like it would be better to just go with a NVIDIA card lol

since the VRAM has some thermal issues, wouldn't it help to put thermal paste between the steel plate and the heatsink/pipes ? didnt seem to be any there, would probably help a lot with thermal thansfer for that particular piece

1070 is roughly $250 to $300 used on ebay on avg. which makes both the 1060 and 590 irrelevant. atleast for now?

AMD videocards are so boring.... as bad as intels cpus... the last like 3 generations had like 10% or less better performance... well at least i guess this way you can choose between a few different videocards all with relatively the same performance, and one of them ought to be on sale...

I cant wait for intel discrete gpu's Amd really is a cpu company at this point. Also, I'm sick of tossing cash to nvidia after the over hype of the 2080ti which is a hot hot card.

i have tested quite a few XFX cards over the last couple of years. and they have rarely, if ever made a solid cooler for their products. that, and i usually stay away from Gigabyte due to 3 cards (out of maybe 10) having bad coil whine during load, not just high FPS and 6 of them having the lowest, if any overclocking headroom. their coolers performs great though, but thats about it.
