RX 590 vs R9 FURY X with i7-8700K vs i7-4790K at 4K and ultra vs ultra settings

AMD Radeon RX 590 / i7-8700K

It is clear that the RX 590 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for RX 590 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. It is worth noting that the RX 590 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RX 590 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks.

AMD Radeon R9 FURY X / i7-4790K

It is worth noting that the R9 FURY X is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. With regards to max load temperature, the R9 FURY X 's cooling is excellent at keeping it cool and under control. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like R9 FURY X requires careful thought. With current 4096 MB RAM, the R9 FURY X can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.
