3DMark Time Spy and Fire Strike Extreme

Before we get into the real-world game tests, let's take a quick look at relative performance across our tested GPUs with some synthetic benchmarks.


While we don't include them in the rest of our GPU comparisons, we decided to throw the GTX 1070 and Vega 56 in this comparison to give a relative idea of where the RX 590 lies in the grand scheme of things.

While providing good gains, almost 10% over the RX 580 and GTX 1060 6GB, the RX 590 is still significantly slower than the next class of GPUs.
