RX 590 with i5-4670K 1080p, 1440p, 4K benchmarks at Ultra Quality

At 1440p, RX 590 can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. 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. This combination between RX 590 and Intel Core i5-4670K @ 3.40GHz has less than 8% bottleneck in many games and is perfect match to avoid FPS loss. This combination between RX 590 and Intel Core i5-4670K @ 3.40GHz is a perfect match to avoid FPS loss.
