Rumours of AMD's upcoming RX 590 are quickly setting the internet ablaze, offering a notable performance bump to AMD's mid-range GPU offerings to potentially deliver a killing blow to Nvidia's GTX 1060 6GB.

MyDrivers has reported that AMD's latest Radeon offering will release on November 15th with a price tag of around 2099 yuan in China, a price tag that converts to roughly £235 in the UK. However, tax differences and other oddities regarding currency conversions will likely result in a different UK price tag. 

Early performance estimates give the RX 590 a 10-15% performance lead over the RX 580, gains which reportedly come courtesy of Globalfoundries' 12nm manufacturing process. These changes are rumoured to deliver increases in clock speeds and power efficiency. The RX 590 is expected to use 8GB of GDDR5 memory, offering similar levels of memory bandwidth to an RX 580.

With the lack of mid-range Nvidia RTX/Turing series graphics cards, AMD's RX 590 is likely to be the only new mid-range graphics card that we will see in 2018. Hopefully delivering consumers a little more value for money than today's offerings, either by pushing the prices of RX 580 graphics cards down, or by offering more performance than today's offerings at similar price points. 

With this release, we do not expect AMD to launch a reference RX 590 GPU model, instead relying on their AIB partners to ship custom models with factory overclocks.
