ASUS Intros Radeon RX 570 Expedition Graphics Card

ASUS today introduced the Radeon RX 570 Expedition graphics card (model: EX-RX570-O8G). The card is part of the company's Expedition family of graphics cards and motherboards designed for the rigors of gaming i-cafes, and is built with slightly more durable electrical components, and IP5X-certified dust-proof fans. The card features an engine clock (GPU clock) of up to 1256 MHz out of the box (against 1240 MHz reference), while its memory clock is untouched at 7.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective). It features 8 GB of memory.

The card is cooled by a custom-design aluminium fin-stack cooler to which heat drawn by a pair of 8 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat-pipes is vented out by a pair of IP5X-certified 80 mm dual ball-bearing fans that are programmed to stay off when the GPU temperature is under 55 °C. The card is put through 144 hours of extreme stress-testing before being packaged. Power is drawn from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. Display outputs include one each of DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0b, and dual-link DVI-D. The company didn't reveal pricing.

For 170$, the RX 570 is a great graphics card for many gamers who want gaming on the cheap.
While the architecture isn't the most efficient, it could be a good alternative to something like a GTX 1060 3GB edition for its great price.

Gamers could also enjoy the dust resistant fans, and the relatively small footprint of the PCB.

Nice one asus, can't wait for gamers to rejoice with a well made product like this :rockout:

no ROG Branding..
no Backplate..
No Pricing..... (giving an MSRP is a self destruct for companies & will only yield them to a loss..when they can sell for x 2 price)

i see where this is going...

Expedition cards have never been under ROG. Cheapo cards from asus, I don't really understand the point of these card when they already have dual branding though.

I'm kinda seeing slightly less than positive comments here.
The card itself is really good!
The cooling is effective, the fans don't fail like the STRIX do, and the PCB has VOLTAGE Measuring points on the backside so you can get direct voltage feed with a multi-meter! I think that's pretty dope!
The fact that it's an 8GB version means the memory chips should be higher quality than the 4GB variant!

I feel Expedition sounds better for GPUs than Strix does. Fatalfury trolls AMD related threads like his buddy Fabio

sad thing is with AMD is after driver 12.6 some older games may not be supported anymore under later drivers so I had to go back to NVidia with my latest card [980ti] now all my games work as expected + these latest cards lack any OS support so why buy a card that don't support all my needs today ? [NVidia 10 series is on the same road ] pretty much if your not using that malware service called win--10 , it may not fully work if at all .. don't be surprised by this time next year even 7 and 8 will be dropped . way back when folks cried how proprietary winds xp was .. man that looks open source now a days and private unlike you now get with 10 ..

you personal computer is now there public one

Three NO's make a negative post

No ROG Branding. = Its not a ROG branded Product
No Backplate = Does it need a Back plate ( when they are available in Retail channels we will see ).
No Pricing. = Nothing unusual about that. Lots of Product are Announced with no finalized Price.
They will Announce the retail price when it Actually hits the market and that price may depend on pre Sale Stock build up ,the general state of the GPU market and other things we are not privy to.
i see where this is going. = Really is it time to short sell Asus on the Stock market is your crystal bollok that good

I see it as Asus releasing a slightly less expensive Card Below their top tier Brand ( ROG ) in a bid to gain/extend their market share.

Sorry you see it that way, it does say that since 18.1.1 dx 9 has been fixed. By the way I have games that were for PC during W95 days that would not work on XP, let alone W7 or newer.

I build for my own wants and needs. If I have to I would run an emulation layer.
