VisionTek Brings Its Vision To The Radeon RX 500 Series

VisionTek announced the retail launch of its Radeon RX 580 8GB and Radeon RX 570 4GB Overclocked Edition video cards. The new RX 500 series GPUs from Visiontek are overclocked from the factory sporting core clock speeds of 1,366MHz and 1,264MHz, respectively. 

The Radeon RX 580 8GB comes with a custom designed dual fan cooler with a black-nickel aluminum exoskeleton and two 8mm and two 6mm heatpipes for increased cooling capacity. 

The Radeon 570 4GB sports a rear exhaust fan design utilizing a rear-blower fan mated to a black Radeon-branded fan shroud. Undoubtedly more powerful coolers will help keep GPU temperatures in check, in turn enabling higher clock speeds to be maintained. 

VisionTek makes no bones about its target market. Company president Michael Innes told Tom's Hardware:
HD visuals, More FPS, and Virtual Reality experiences are driving the evolution of the PC. An estimated 88% of PC gamers are playing on 2+ year old GPUs. Our RX 580/570 cards deliver amazing upgrades to game play and significant enhancements to the visual experience!
