Would the upcoming radeon rx 590 be a good substitute for a 1070
Possibly, but the pre-release benchmarks suggest it will be closer in performance to the GTX 1060 6GB than the GTX 1070. At any rate, it will be impossible to say for sure until it is released and undergoes extensive real-world benchmarking.
Where's the cool FPS table?
We're trying out some new formats for different kinds of articles. In this one, the tier chart is replaced with a list of benchmark example builds (similar to the presentation of our non-gaming big guides). While this method of conveying the info will be slightly less useful to people who already have their gaming PCs, it should also be more useful to people who are still selecting hardware. But it's not set in stone yet; we're still collecting data on how new builders use the guides, and may still be tooling around with the format for a while yet.
Well, in my opinion, this format is good, but it seems to lose some of the Logical Increments' essence.
It is indeed better for someone planning to buy a computer while having MHW in mind, but it may be confusing for someone trying to build something for MHW AND something else, since that person will have to compare many parts while not really knowing the difference between then, or which is better, or what is in between... It's lacking the incremental logic to it (wink wink).
