ASUS Prepares GPP-Ridden Radeon RX 590 ROG STRIX Graphics Card for Launch

Videocardz, through their industry sources, say they've confirmed that ASUS is working on their own Radeon RX 590 ROG STRIX graphics card. The naming isn't a typo: the GPP-fueled AREZ moniker has apparently gone off the window for ASUS by now, and the RX 590 should be marketed under its (again) brand-agnostic ROG lineup. The product code (ASUS Radeon RX 590 ROG STRIX GAMING (ROG-STRIX-RX590-8G-GAMING) indicates the usage of 8 GB of graphics memory just like the RX 580, and we all expect this to be of the GDDR5 kind with no further refinements. It's all in the die, as they (could) say.

Didn't ROG, Strix and Gaming used to be different brands? ROG STRIX GAMING sounds like a mouthful.

So old 580 is now 590 and old 570 is now 580. Well played RTG, well played. You makes Jesom Huang proud.

Indeed, good news for those that like to overpay for ROG branding.

They should have used GDDR5X on this, as Polaris are bandwidth starved (you can see RX470 8GB that is equipped with 8gbps memory is very close to RX480)

If it's dual gpu it makes sense otherwise just another mess in gpu naming industry.

And the box, but those are just mock-ups. Once the real product is made that name will very likely be gone.

They're refreshes with higher clocks and faster memory.

So the new 580 is 590, old 580 is still the 580, and the new 570 is also now 580. I rather them do this because the new 570 has the same performance of the outgoing 580. It protects those who don't know better and default to "higher number must mean it's better" from buying old 580's think they're better than the new 570s. Honestly the just should have released the new cards as the 575/585 or 570R/580R and avoided this whole mess.

It is a lot more than "a mess" This is the same f*cuking shady business practice that tons of angry red guards constantly bi*tching about regarding "Evil Bad Nvidia" Yet when their beloved RTG does the same thing these crazed fans all turned blind. Double standards much?

RTG has become a sh*it show for the past couple years. Incompetent in technology and marketing. Mediocrcy is not rewarded in a capitalist market. They better get their sh*it together, fast.

Yet NV feels like it needs to release a third type of 1060 to counter it. Feelsbadman.

The only performance group they can't counter is the high-end. They have contenders till the 1080. Which means every single GPU except for the 1080Ti, 2080, 2080Ti and the Titans since Pascal. Which means maybe 3-4% of the GPU owners. As a blind 2080Ti buyer I can understand your point of view though. If it was sold for 2500$, you would have bought it too.

It is not the same fkn sht and I'd rather this nonsense over "we just released a more powerful variant of an existing card and since we worked so hard at getting it to you consumers we've put little to no effort in distinguishing from the older less powerful cards in the wild. Consumers can figure out that out themselves." With this regardless if you get the old 580 or the new 570 rebadged as a 580 they perform the same. Other than sneakily hiking the prices, a door that Nvidia blew wide open and AMD walking through it because why the f not I don't see anything wrong here I.e. nothing to get worked up over. If you want to be buttmad about how AMD names cards much lesser than the 2080ti you have go ahead. I don't think any amount of reasoning can deal with that kind of irrationality.

And I still don't see these RTG crazed fanatics. I see a lot of "Ngreedia" posts, but that ain't the same thing.
And honestly this could be good, as all Polaris cards, if the price is right. Vega was decent too but way, way too expensive.

This GTX 980 Strix which I have seems to be the last high-end from GeForce series which was just Strix. 980 Ti is Strix Gaming. I didn't even realize that the brands become one before I saw your post. :D

From AMD, is R9 390 the first Strix series high-end card? It seems that it's Strix Gaming already.

Just for jokes: Ares was Asus brand for their custom dual gpu Radeon behemoths -> RX 590 ROG Ares V, dual Polaris card from Asus. But nah, that box pic is a clear mock up as @lexluthermiester said(clearly says RX 580 8GB on that box).

They sell dual Polaris cards they are just under then fire pro line. I don't think we will see a dual gpu consumer card anytime soon.

Radeon Pro now-a-days. Thought in my understanding Asus don't make/sell those, they are usually from Sapphire(direct or oem for amd).

I meant they as a whole not aimed at Asus on this one and you are correct I always forget its Radeon Pro now.

ALL HAIL THE MIDRANGE KING...

In other news... AMDs 590 seems to have targeted solely as midrange in price and performance.
