Amazon has a killer deal on the AMD Radeon RX 590 GPU ahead of Prime Day

AMD Radeon RX 590

Prime Day 2019 kicks off on July 15, but Amazon is already offering a bunch of great deals leading up to the big sale. This is a boon for shoppers who don’t have the Prime membership required to take advantage of Prime Day deals. And if you’re building a gaming PC and are on the hunt for a GPU (arguably the most important part of a gaming rig), then now’s your chance to score the AMD Radeon RX 590 and save some money without crippling your build.

Assembling a custom-built desktop computer used to be something that was outside the experience of all but the most dedicated PC gamers. Thankfully, the proliferation of PC gaming (not to mention a plethora of online tutorials on the subject, including our own, that make the process much less intimidating to the uninitiated) means that more and more people are opting to fine-tune their setups and save cash by building their own computers. With Nvidia and AMD rolling out their latest graphics cards, it’s also a good time to grab a slightly older but still good unit like the Radeon RX 590 at a discount.

The Radeon RX 590 is one of AMD’s newer mid-range offerings in its series of Polaris graphics cards, comparable in performance to the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070. It handily out-competes the Nvidia GTX 1060, which has stood tall among the best mid-range cards for some time. That’s not a huge surprise: The Radeon TX 590 packs 8GB of DDR5 VRAM compared to the 1060’s 6GB VRAM, and being an update to AMD’s RX line, the Radeon RX 590 delivers a significant performance boost over the aging RX 580.

Amazon has a few models of the AMD Radeon RX 590 on sale right now at prices ranging from $210 to $216: The score the AMD Radeon RX 590 comes factory-overclocked and is available for $210 ($70 off), while the Gigabyte Radeon RX 590 rings in at the same price but without the factory overclock. The Sapphire Nitro+ RX 590, on sale for $216 ($73 off), is a variant that comes with a dual BIOS which allows you to set two modes: overclocked for gaming and silent for regular everyday use.
