Weird, aside from slightly lower clocks, the only thing I see is a release date 1 year later.

It was made on the same 12nm that the RX590 is made on and not 14nm the RX580 is made on was my understand ..

Correct, both are 12nm, but the newer Core is possibly worse silicone or they simply clock it lower to ensure stability. Both are good deals for Mainsteam gamers, especially now that it is so hard to find a reasonably priced 1650 Super.
