Following the appearance of the first images of the Sapphire Radeon RX 590 Nitro + Special Edition video card on the Web, the Canadian branch of the online store Newegg inadvertently published both the technical characteristics of the new product and its price. Recall that AMD itself to this day still did not have time to officially announce this video accelerator.
So, Sapphire Radeon RX 590 Nitro + Special Edition has two BIOS chips that store different settings for the operating frequencies of the GPU and memory. By default, the graphics core of the new model in boost mode operates at a speed of 1,560 MHz, which is 130 MHz more than that of the similar model Radeon RX 580. Eight gigabytes of video memory function at a frequency of 2100 (8400) MHz.
When switching to the second BIOS chip, in which the settings of the Silent mode are stored, the Polaris 30 GPU will operate at frequencies up to 1545 MHz in dynamic overclocking, and the video memory is characterized by an effective frequency of 8 GHz. Other features of the adapter include a six-phase power supply system, a semi-passive mode of operation of the cooler, and a relatively short length of 260 mm.
As for the price, the Newegg branch rated the Sapphire Radeon RX 590 Nitro + Special Edition video card at 500 Canadian dollars (~ 380 US dollars). However, this price is probably not yet final.
