Conclusion

Most DIY users who follow the Radeon series would know that the RX 570 is just a revised RX 470 with a high clock and memory speed.  PowerColor Red Devil Radeon RX 570 4GB GDDR5 edition boosts the GPU with it’s engine clocked up to 1320 MHz with boost and memory clock at 1750 MHz. This additional boost makes it compare favourably to the more expensive Nvidia flavours including the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB and 6GB cards.

From our tests of new and old benchmarks, it is noted that the performance of the graphics card can match and in some cases outperform the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB. Although this happened in 3DMark, some of the older benchmarks showed otherwise and we reckon that as it’s target was meant to be the GeForce GTX 1050.

In terms of overclocking, the overclocking tool Wattman is somewhat hidden within the Crimson driver and it took some time to get accustomed to the interface. Although the card is pre overclocked, we managed to squeeze a bit more by moving the clocks to 1405/1850 MHz (GPU/VRAM). That is a 6.4% jump in GPU Clock speed.

The fans were reasonably quiet during the Overclocking test as they were turned up to the maximum speed available within Wattman.

While all tests were done with benchmarks, it gives us an indication that when the cards are set to run with high AA/AF at 1080p, the cards performance difference narrows. Costs and performance are consideration factors when purchasing a new graphics card. The PowerColor Radeon RX570 Red Devil edition isn’t price that expensively against the competition.
