I would like to know if the Radeon RX 550 is capable to play 4 videos and movies in a 65 inch 4k TV without issues. If that happens I will buy mine tomorrow and ensemble my small multimedia pc..

What do they mean by 1440p? I've seen Tom's review from earlier in the day on a Sapphire 580 card where they tested 1080p and the lower 1440p resolution which would be 2460x1440. They do not distinguish between that or the 3440x1440 which is also 1440p but is 30% more pixels that the card has to push. Tech journalists have to stop being lazy and not getting specific on these things. It's like saying 4k. 4k what? There are several different resolutions and specifications that all go by the name 4k, at least they aren't nearly as different as the 2 1440p resolutions.

The pricing is fine. They perform close together, too. Either save some cash and get a 4GB x70 model or get an overclocked 8GB x80 model, IMHO.


1080p is 1920 x 1080. That's a 16:9 ratio, by far the most common ratio today and essentially the current "standard" ratio (though it is technically widescreen). So when discussing 1080p vs 1440p, it should be obvious they're not changing ratios unless specified. So taking that 16:9 ratio and extrapolating it to 1440p, you get 2560 x 1440. That's the 1440p being discussed. If it was the 3440 x 1440p that would be a widescreen (technically ultra widescreen) resolution and they would have specified the change in ratio (21:9) one way or another.

So rather than bash journalists for "being lazy", perhaps you should instead reflect on your own lack of knowledge. Thanks and have a wonderful day.

All things said likely a minor revision of the 400 series so its fair that the pricing is similar. Will have to wait for benchies to be sure. But that said. I suppose we have to let go of the notion that every series will be miles from the last - Especially if they are released in such quick succession. Why not... :/

Does Nvidia have anything on the lowest end? At $79 as a graphic card for a multimedia home theater personal computer isn't a bad idea. Then again, if going AMD, isn't their APU already powerful enough? It would also be interesting to see if the RX 580 can beat the Geforce 1060, as they're priced the same. Though, this article make AMD looks sad, if the RX 580 is consider their "high-end" GPU.

In every single one I've seen, the RX580 happily beats the 480 by at least 10%, for basically the same price. So these revisions are for literally anyone who's looking to upgrade.

That doesn't fit to me well. I do want to see AMD dominate the market cause they 're cheaper and hell out of competitive to their rivals. But launching a similar product is good for only only one reason. Buy previous models in better price. I bet this is ain't gonna happen.

Whether or not it does, the 580s seem to have a bit better bin (Hence the higher default clocks) and as I said, they seem to be a healthy step up from the 480 (Almost as much of a jump as the 480 was to the 470). While I agree that Vega should be prioritized at this point, I would think it silly not to put the 500s out if their improvements were this significant.
