PowerColor Red Devil Radeon RX 590 review: Trying to keep things fresh

By Koh Wanzi - 15 Jan 2019

Temperature & power consumption

Temperature and power consumption

The peak temperature was taken after running 40 loops of 3DMark's Fire Strike Extreme stress test. Similarly, the power consumption figures were cleaned from a run of 3DMark's Fire Strike Extreme benchmark. 

The chunky custom cooler on the PowerColor card did it good here, and it beat out all of NVIDIA's Founders Edition offerings with the coolest temperatures. It didn't fare so well in terms of power consumption and efficiency though, netting the highest peak and idle power consumption figures, even though it was far from being the quickest card here. 

  • Performance 7.5
  • Features 7.5
  • Value 8.5
The Good
Attractive price
Decent performance at 1080p
The Bad
High power consumption
Still based on aging Polaris architecture
Is basically an overclocked Radeon RX 580
