590's are the best vfm <£220
Side by side against a 1070ti - 590 was smoother, cleaner and better all round.

Software is better than Nvidia's and updates are going to come for a long time.
Great price, although I went for the 1660 Super for the GDDR6.
I doubt it comes with free delivery and what "AMD’s latest GCN 4 architecture"? You mean 4 years old architecture.

Does a 1070ti perform better than a 1660 super? If so does that mean a 590 would be better than a 1660?

How would this compare to a gigabyte 780ti? Having a few problems with it and thinking of having a change

How? The 1070 Ti is way more powerful and while I use AMD GPUs even I admit drivers are NVIDIA’s thing not an AMD strength.

At £155, the RX 590 is quite compelling but it is nearly 4yo architecture now.

You're looking at a ~25% uplift, potentially much greater than that in DX12 games, potentially less in older titles google.com/search?q=rx+590+vs+780+ti&oq=rx+590+vs+780&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j0l3.8090j0j4&client=ms-unknown&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8

Any good for games at 1440p?

Depends on how old the game you are talking about, and youd need to have lower detail. Saying that at 1440p there is less of a need for anti aliasing so compromises can be made.

I ran one at 1080/1440P it played faultless.
My friend uses it at 4K no idea what settings but he loves it.

I understand what numbers should mean but I tested the 590 fully for a friend.

@ 2.5K resolution it just ran smoother and all round better, FPS were...better.

Scum,ROE, hell even War Thunder played slick
(Better FPS in Scum annoyed me a lot!)

He now plays it on a 4K 60Hz monitor And has no problems.

Both 590 and 1070ti were overclocked,
The 590 GDDR afterburnered really high.

Must have been something wrong with the 1070ti setup. The 1070ti is much faster at pretty much every game. War Thunder loves Nvidia, so there is def something wrong.
Anyway this 590 is a good price.

Yep. 590 is around 1660 performance (580/1060 +10%), not 1070ti/2060/Vega 56.
This or a 1660 super?? I'm torn between the both. I know the 1660 super is more expensive but I'm building my first gaming PC.

I have an XFX 590 and I have been playing AC Unity on it at 1440p. The card manages to give me 40ish fps while hitting around 75°. Most settings are at Medium or High. I would imagine for Odyssey, you wouldn't want to be at 1440p with any 590 card, but 1080p should be fine with the settings turned down.

Having said that, as you are playing a title that is only just winding down on the DLC front, if your budget can stretch to it, I'd recommend waiting for a good deal on an RX 5700. With those eBay codes, you can get one for a decent price usually. Even one of the reference style ones will do you for the next couple of years at 1440p/1080p while this card may struggle as newer ganes come out later this year.
I picked this up for just below £140 before Christmas on the eBay deal listed here.

It easily breezes all my titles at 1080p high/ultra settings with a solid 60fps minimum. If you're after something for 1080p gaming I wouldn't looks past this card espeically if it comes down past the £140 mark again.

"Software is better than Nvidias"? It's definitely not. AMD GPUs are plagued with driver issues, I have a fair few friends who have AMD graphics cards and they regularly have issues with crashing and compatibility.

Great price regardless.

It's generally accepted that Nvidia's drivers are "better" but that doesn't stop the usual green v red nonsense. It's not rocket science, AMD is better value right now and Nvidia has the top end performance lead and RTX, if that's a thing you care about. A 5700XT is a steal but if you want the nuts then a 2080ti is untouchable (OK Titan but you get what I mean) and is likely to be so until the 'super' variant and then Ampere, even with AMD's supposed 'Nvidia Killer Navi'.

At this level though AMD have some great offerings, so long as you are OK with the planet being cooked alive with your electricity bill

Although AMD seem to support their older cards for longer in terms of game optimisations. (Called “fine wine” by some and stated as nonsense by others). However you only need to look at recent benchmarks for the RX580 v GTX 1060 and Vega 56 v GTX 1070. The AMD cards have pulled ahead (way ahead in some cases) of what was a fairly even contest initially.
But yes, older AMD are more power hungry. The RX5700 series isn’t that much different to the equivalent Nvidia model.

I agree AMD have better legacy support but I'm not sure that was the original argument/gist. I think the 5700 is, as you say, good but not that 'stand out ish' but the 5700XT when on a deal represents a very good value proposition in this generation, i.e. it's not cheap but it is where we are so lets make the best of it (and a 5700XT is VERY fast at the price point let's not forget). At the end of the day if we are talking mid level PC GPUs then it's not cheap any way you look at it right now, but it's also not the worst it's been in the last few years.

For the record I bought a 2600 (non super) founders edition and it's a great card. I game at 1440p but I accept the limitations of that choice. Slightly reduced details, less AA (which I dont consider an issue as much as 1440p), etc and its great. I have 75hz (which are fake-gsync-friendly) displays so I'm not trying to hit massive frame rates.

Also I apologise as I am typing all this nonsense on a thread about a £155 GPU which has no real bearing on what I am on about
