It won't compete with the $1000-plus beasts from Nvidia any time soon, but if you were looking for a more affordable mid-range offering to tide you over, AMD has something new.
Based on the same Polaris architecture that's underpinned the last couple of years of AMD's GPU offerings, the RX 590 will launch in Australia from late November.
Based on the ASUS ROG Strix, which is the first AIB offering to announce local availability, pricing for the RX 590 will be around the $469 mark. Most local outlets are currently selling the RX 580 8GB model from $380, compared to the GTX 1060, which is roughly the same price at most major computer retailers (although RamCity are selling one Gigabyte model for an absurd $262).
Here's the reference spec for the RX 590:

|Output||DisplayPort 1.4 HDR, HDMI (4K/60)|
AMD has announced a three-game bundle for the RX 590 as well, and it's not a bad selection of games: Capcom's Resident Evil 2 remaster, The Division 2, and Devil May Cry 5. It's not available locally yet, however, so you'll have to stick to the AIB cards when they become available.
