What is the RX 570?

The RX 570 is AMD's answer to Nvidia's GTX 1060 graphics card. Like its competitor, the RX 570 sits in the mid-tier between budget-level cards like the GTX 1050 and RX 560 and high-end models like the GTX 1070 and RX VEGA 56. This places its performance at the top tier of 1080p, where it can regularly maintain 60fps in modern games with the settings pushed all the way up to the maximum.

Unlike the GTX 1060 which comes in 3GB and 6GB versions, the RX 570 is available with either 4GB or 8GB of GDDR5 RAM. This RAM operates on a 256-bit memory bus at speeds of up to 7Gbps. On the GPU front, the stock RX 570 clocks in at 1168MHz base speed with the ability to boost up to 1244MHz.

Power requirements for the RX 570 are a little steeper than its Nvidia counterpart. Typical usage draws around 150W, with AMD advising a minimum rating of 450W for your PC's power supply. However, this can vary depending on the particular model of RX 570 and some models may require an 8-pin external power connector, while others can get by drawing power directly from the motherboard.

What features does the RX 570 support?

The Radeon RX 500 series comes with a slew of additional features designed to enhance your experience when gaming, streaming or enjoying any other form of computer entertainment. Highlights include:

  • Radeon Chill adaptive power-saving technology
  • Eyefinity multi-display technology
  • Virtual Super Resolution super-sampling
  • Vulkan API support
  • Radeon ReLive recording software
  • FreeSync
  • LiquidVR
  • DirectX 12
  • HDCP 2.2
  • HDMI 2.0b
  • DisplayPort 1.4 HDR
  • TressFX hair physics

How powerful is the RX 570?

AMD has its sights set firmly on 1080p with the RX 570. Thanks to its solid specs, the mid-tier graphics card has little trouble hitting a silky smooth 60fps at 1080p in most current games, even with the graphical settings turned up all the way to Very High or Ultra.

If you've got yourself a flashy 1440p monitor, the RX 570 remains a viable option too. It does struggle to hold a flawless 60fps in some of the more demanding games, but dropping a few settings down to High tends to clear up most performance issues.

The RX 570 is the cheapest of AMD's Radeon RX 500 series to meet the minimum requirements for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift VR headsets, and as such represents a reasonably affordable entry point into virtual reality. Just because it meets minimum spec doesn't mean it will deliver a smooth experience, though. With VR one of the most power-hungry tasks a graphics card can perform, the RX 570 may have no issues with some games and struggle or prove flat-out incompatible with others. Bear that in mind if you plan on jacking into virtual reality.

RX 570 availability and price

Like the rest of the Radeon RX 500 series, the RX 570 launched on 18 April 2017. If you're looking to pick one up, you can typically find the 4GB model going for between $380 and $450, while the 8GB version usually hovers around the $460 to $500 mark.
