Release 0.3.0 adds the SMCRadeonGPU kext to export GPU temperature to VirtualSMC for monitoring tools like iStats or Sensei to read.
Note that SMCRadeonGPU depends on VirtualSMC and RadeonSensor kexts and must be loaded after them.

Are there any benefits to use this on RX 570..? It already shows those details out of the box thus I guess this is useful for 5000/6000 cards?

Apple stopped reporting the temperature with Vega 20, so it is mainly useful for Radeon VII and newer cards.
Unless you want the GPU temperature in the status bar similarly to the CPU temperature:
