Overall Combination Score 87/100 68/100 19 (22%)
Our Verdict: At 1440p, R9 FURY can hit 50-60 frames per second on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. Whereas RX 590 can hit 50-60 frames per second at maximum settings. Upgrading from R9 FURY to RX 590 is not recommended as it is less than 30% of improvement in performance. In general, a reasonable upgrade is between 30% and 50% or more to justify the purchase of new hardware. The price/performance ratio is much better for RX 590 .

RX 590 vs R9 FURY with i7-8700K vs i7-4790K at 1440p and ultra vs ultra settings
RX 590 vs R9 FURY 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 / i7-4790K

At 1440p, R9 FURY can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is worth noting that the R9 FURY is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. With current 4096 MB RAM, the R9 FURY can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.
