The year of AMD Ryzen continues with a much need refresh in the AMD mid-range GPU market. Some of you may remember the RX 400 series launch around this time in 2016 which helped solidify AMD with support for 1080p gaming and gave them an affordable GPU to compete against NVIDIA. Of course the NVIDIA cards were still faster but, that wasn’t really the point.
In this review I’ll be looking at the Aorus Radeon RX 570 graphics card. As the name suggests this card is based on the AMD Radeon RX 570 GPU which many are calling a refreshed RX 470 with a higher clocks for better performance. GPU architecture aside the new Aorus Radeon RX 570 comes equipped with a whole list of features to improve both style and performance.

What I find impressive is the GPU Gauntlet sorting which I can assume is a GPU binning process to ensure that every card gets a quality GPU. Many companies have done this in the past to not only ensure good performance but also to aid in long term reliability.
