Following the appearance of the first images of the Sapphire Radeon RX 590 Nitro + Special Edition video card on the Web, the Canadian branch of the Newegg online store has inadvertently published both the technical characteristics of the new product and its price. Recall that the same AMD until today had not yet time to officially announce this video accelerator.
So, Sapphire Radeon RX 590 Nitro + Special Edition has two BIOS chips that store different settings for the operating frequencies of the GPU and memory. By default, the graphics core of the new model in boost mode operates at a speed of 1,560 MHz, which is 130 MHz more than that of the similar Radeon RX 580 model. Eight gigabytes of video memory function at a frequency of 2100 ( 8400) MHz.
When switching to the second BIOS chip, where the Silent mode settings are stored, the Polaris 30 GPU will operate at frequencies up to 1545 MHz in dynamic acceleration and the video memory is characterized by an effective frequency of 8 GHz. 39; adapter include a six-phase power system, a semi-passive mode of the cooling device and a relatively short length of 260 mm.
As for the price, the Newegg subsidiary rated the Sapphire Radeon RX 590 Nitro + Special Edition video card at $ 500 Canadian (~ $ 380 US). However, this price is probably not yet final.
