Lately NVIDIA and their RTX graphics cards have been the focus of most media outlets, with the reception ranging from moderate to positive. AMD hasn’t had anything to show for in response to team green’s cutting edge (but expensive) Turing architecture, so many of their products are seeing sharp price drops. The Gigabyte version of the Radeon RX 570 is one such mouth-watering deal.
The Gigabyte Radeon RX 570 is selling for an unbelievable $150 on Newegg at the moment. This is the lowest price for this card till now, and this sale is supposed to go on till Sunday. The original price for the RX 570 was north of $200, but during the mining craze it went as high as $300 (even higher at times). Even now, the custom models of the 570 are selling for around $250, so this $150 offer is as sweet as it gets.
The RX 570 is a capable 1080p card and although it’s no GTX 1060, it is after all a good $100+ cheaper too, so if you are on a tight budget and need a FHD-worthy graphics card, then this price is hard to shrug off.
This Gigabyte card leverages the Windforce 2X cooling system with three copper composite heatpipes and 90mm fan blades that generally perform better than the MSI and Asus models. The card runs pretty cool most of the times and the fans are “semi-passive”, that is, they are turned off when the GPU load is low. The LEDs also improve the aesthetics, so overall it’s a fine card.
