Overall and Final Verdict
So with all of my testing done and having taken a closer look at the Asus Strix RX 570’s features lets break it all down. With this being the first Asus card that has come in for a while I am really liking the direction they have gone. The new Strix styling really looks good on video cards and with it being color neutral it is going to match most PCs better than the old red and black ROG theme as well as the same red and black look that the XFX 570 had. Like the XFX the 1080p performance was great and 1440p was even playable but the Strix improved on the performance even more with its much higher clock speed. Even with that the Strix RX 570 managed to run surprisingly cool and be the quietest card tested as well. Really the only downside was with the power usage. The higher clock speed translated to much higher power usage when put under load, putting the 570 all the way up below the GTX 1080.
The Strix RX 570 seems to be one of if not the best RX 570 on the market so if you are locked in getting an RX 570 this is a great one to be looking at. As I brought up in our XFX review, I do have some concerns with the price points that the RX 570’s are running at overall when compared to the GTX 1060’s currently. But for anyone looking to stick with AMD and to get good 1080p performance the Strix RX 470 looks to be a good way to do that.
