AMD Radeon RX 570X
The Radeon RX 570X is an AMD GPU that was released in March 2018. This GPU is bad at gaming with a score of 6% in our PC benchmark.
The Radeon RX 570X has 8 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 218 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 256 bits. More memory is beneficial when gaming at high resolutions as the memory needs to store the frame buffer and all the game textures. If you run out of memory, you will experience poor performance as the GPU needs to swap data in and out of the memory as it is used.
In terms of clock speed, the Radeon RX 570X GPU core runs at a frequency of 1168 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1244 MHz. The clock runs at a speed called the clock speed. It dictates the number of updates per second that the GPU can process. Overclocking a chip, which means increasing the clock speed will improve the performance. However, thermals and power efficiency may be diminished.
As for rendering API support, the Radeon RX 570X supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.
The AMD Radeon RX 570X has a TDP of 120W, this is the amount of heat energy produced by the chip as a byproduct. The higher the TDP, the more heat is produced.
