PowerColor Red Devil Radeon RX 570 4GB Video Card Review

Final Thoughts and Conclusions

The AMD Radeon RX 570 series cards generally range in price from $179 up to $235 at this time and that is before any rebates are factored in. For the price, the performance of the Radeon RX 570 for 1080P gaming is solid and you can even dabble with 1440P gaming if you aren’t going to go crazy with the image quality. The PowerColor Red Devil Radeon RX 570 4GB Video Card at $189.99 shipped is priced on the lower than most RX 570 models and we found it to be a pretty powerful little card that has some overclocking headroom left in it that will allow you to get even more performance.

In our charts we compared this card to the Sapphire NITRO+ Radeon RX 580 Limited Edition 8GB model that currently runs $289.99. When it comes to 1080P gaming performance we couldn’t ‘feel’ a difference between the Radeon RX 570 and the Radeon RX 580, so it’s hard to suggest a Radeon RX 580 for $100 more over this card if you only plan on doing 1080P gaming. The PowerColor Red Devil Radeon RX 570 4GB feels like it is priced right for a custom card of this caliber.

When it comes to negatives on the PowerColor Red Devil Radeon RX 570 we could only come up with four.

  1. The 11.625-inch length on this card might cause some fitment issues in some smaller or old PC cases.
  2. The fan noise after gaming for long period of time is a bit louder than we would like to hear, but it is bearable.
  3. Power Efficiency? What power efficiency!
  4. Good luck finding one as they are out of stock on Amazon, Newegg and other retailers we looked at.

Multiple AMD board partners told us that they are having trouble getting Polaris GPUs to build cards with, but that should get sorted out soon enough. PowerColor told us another batch of cards is due to arrive next week here in the United States, so you might just have to wait a week if you want to pick one of these cards up. If the negatives don’t bother you then you should be happy with one of these cards!
