The memory clock of this GPU is 8 GHz, which is amazingly fast, and don’t forget this GPU is also power full. This GPU interface is 256-Bit. The memory bandwidth is a lot faster than its predecessor also. Like it’s faster than AMD Radeon RX 460 and AMD Radeon RX 560. The memory bandwidth is freaking 256 GB/s which is awesome.  The cache memories are also good in terms of performance. The L2 cache memory is 2MB which is impressive. The memory clock of this AMD Radeon RX 590 GME is 8 GHz which will help in boosting game performance.

Cores & Texture:

Compute units: 36
Color ROPs: 32
Stream processors: 2304
Texture units: 144
Decoders: Adobe Flash
DXVA 1.0 & 2.0
MPEG 2 (SH & HD)
MPEG-4 Part 2 (DivX/Xvid)
MVC (Blu-ray 3D)

AMD Radeon RX 590 GME has 2304 Stream Processors. The Cuda cores are more than AMD Radeon RX 460 and AMD Radeon RX 560. There are also 32 ROPs that help in rotating, resizing, and much more. There are 144 Texture Units. There are also 36 Compute units that help with the CPU performance to get the most out of this GPU.

Electric characteristics:

Maximum power draw: 175W

This GPU’s maximum power consumption is 175W compared to its predecessor’s 200W. There are also many variants of this GPU that can be further overclocked thus eating more power. Which allows the users to get more out of the GPU. The power limit of this GPU is around 195W which is a lot to get faster performance when it’s overclocked. You can get 10-15% more FPS when it’s overclocked but I would not recommend that if you don’t know about overclocking. The amount of power it eats when you gaming on it is around 175W which also leads us to better heat management. This GPU is fabricated using 14NM which also is power efficient. There are more variants of this GPU but I personally like the Founder Edition version of this GPU, because it has larger fans with a good radiator and with a good cooling system. One more big advantage of this 14NM fabricator is that the heat management is very good, also with new curve fans to get a high amount of RPM.


Pixel fill rate: 44.16 Gigapixels/s
Texture fill rate: 198.72 Gigatexels/s
Single precision computes power: 6359.04 GFLOPS
Double precision computes power: 397.44 GFLOPS

The pixel fill rate of This GPU has scored 44.16 Gigapixels/which is amazingly fast compared to its predecessors. The texture fill rate also scores 198.72 Gigatexels/s. That’s why it supports 4K at high frame rates thanks to ROP’s. The single computing also scores 6359.04 GFLOPS, and double precision computes power scores 397.44 GFLOPS this is amazingly fast. In terms of performance, this GPU is faster than GTX 1650.

External connectors:

Standard display connectors: 3 x DisplayPort 1.4
Dual-Link DVI-D
Power connectors: 1 x 8-pin
Audio input for HDMI: Yes

Well, one of the most important and key factors about this GPU is its power consumption. This GPU is not that power-hungry. This GPU needs 1 x 8-pin connectors. There are also 2 display ports, 1 HDMI, 1 Type C port, which is really great for multiple monitors. There is also Audio input from HDMI which also helps with these new monitors.


Length: 9.5 inches (241 mm)
Width: Dual-Slot

These days the size of the GPU is also important because there are a lot of cases that don’t fit some long GPUs. This GPU is 9.5 inches, which can fit in most PC cases. Plus the GPU is also Dual-slot which helps in heat overflow.

Features & Support:

Other features: Direct Compute 12
AMD PowerTune
AMD ZeroCore Power
ATI/AMD PowerPlay
HD3D Technology
High Dynamic Range (HDR) Support
Open CL support: 2.0
OpenGL support: 4.6
DirectX support: 12.0
Mantle support: Yes
Vulkan support: 1.1.108

There are a lot of new features in this GPU, and they are updated over time. The most amazing new features of this GPU are Direct Compute 12, AMD PowerTune, AMD ZeroCore Power, ATI/AMD PowerPlay, HD3D Technology, HDCP, High Dynamic Range (HDR) Support, etc. This AMD Radeon RX 590 GME has Open CL support 2.0 which is a lot more efficient than the last gen Open CL. This will help in boost performance. Radeon RX 590 GME also has Open GL 4.6 support which is also faster than the Open GL 4.5. AMD Radeon RX 590 GME also has DirectX 12 ultimate support. The Vulkan support is also 1.1 which makes the drivers experience more up-to-date. The Shader model makes the texture experience more accurate and more efficient and fast. Radeon RX 590 GME has the Shader model 6.4.

Gaming Experience:

The gaming experience of this GPU is on another level. AMD Radeon RX 590 GME has the fastest memories, fast clock speeds, faster memory clock speeds, more Cuda cores, the newest architecture, and higher bandwidth. Which makes the gaming experience more powerful. The more the Cuda cores the faster the performance of a GPU will be. Running GTA 5 on this GPU will give you around 100+ FPS. And in almost every game this GPU shows the best performance.
