Does anybody else think the RX 590 is redundant?

    I'm still not completely sure why this GPU exists. It doesn't seem to be much better than the RX 580 8GB, and it's almost $100 more. Can anybody enlighten me?

    It's a push to get rid of back stock to get a bit more cash. That is usually what rebrands are for. You can increase speed a little, get more money, and not have to pay extra in all those R&D costs.

    I mean. AMD is a business and their GPU sales have been trash lately (and for good reason). They're just trying to tread water until they figure out what the hell they're doing with their next release.
