AMD’s 50th Anniversary is making a lot of noise of late … so Sapphire was more than happy do something about it.
Yes, we know that AMD’s graphics division anniversary really isn’t on its 50th year – ATI’s acquisition, the true spirit behind AMD’s graphics prowess, occurred back in 2006. However, that doesn’t mean AMD’s graphics aren’t deserving of special commemorative editions. Sapphire have taken it upon themselves to celebrate the occasion with a gold-colored RX 590 graphics card.
The leak came over from one of my own homecountry’s webshops, with a full product page that has since been taken down. There is no difference between this card and the usual blue RX 590 Nitro+ – the devil is in the color, so to say. Reference clocks remain the same at 1560 MHz core, and the cooling solution is the same. In Portuguese prices, the pricing difference seems to amount to some extra €25 for the limited edition graphics card. Whether the pricing difference is enough to warrant the additional investment should go according to your own mileage.
