General | Latest Info

Amd RX 580 is now the smart elder statesman of the current Radeon lineup, but when it first arrived, mildly updated Polaris GPU was actually a bit of disappointment. Not only were we hoping 500 - series cards would herald a new world of Vega - base Graphics cards, they were barely any different from the RX 480 that had landed a year earlier. But a year and half, and a crypto mining boom later, RX 580 has managed to deliver on fine wine promise that AMD attaches to all of its silicon. Its now the Graphics Card that we would recommend as the best GPU to drop into your gaming rig unless you have infinite money tree and can spend 1 200 on RTX 2080 Ti anyways. It is impressively powerful, well - priced Graphics Card, with a comparatively huge pool of video memory and aptitude for dealing with modern Graphics APIs. And at just 190 it has very little competition in the market, with NVIDIA GTX 1060 only giving it pause in few DX11 titles and still being more expensive on the whole. Even the new GTX 1660 Ti struggles against its genuine value proposition. T do have a little more competition in the mainstream market right now, with AMD launching its new RX 590 Graphics Card. That just moderate 12nm die - shrink of Polaris GPU at the heart of the old RX 580, but it is also a timely reminder that AMD mainstream Graphics cards are your best bet for great - value gaming performance right now. Even with the GTX 1660 Ti being unveiled, its GTX 1070 - level gaming performance keeps it another pricing tier above RX 580. Straight GTX 1660 might have something to offer, however, with its slightly chopped TU116 GPU and 220 price tag.

AMD RX 580 performance

This GPU is very popular and great choice for PC gaming during this time. It is priced competitively with the flagship NVIDIA GTX 1060, which in terms of performance, would be better than the RX 580, but the RX 580 has both 4GB models and 8GB. The 8gb model is slightly better than the GTX 1060 in most if not nearly all games. This card also has an appearance in many budget builds, due to its low price and high performance. For this age, this card is definitely strong enough to handle many new demanding titles at high settings.

AMD RX 580 verdict

The Rx 580 is the best - value graphics card on the market today. With pricing problems of mining boom time distant memory, RX 580 8GB cards can be picked up for as little as 190, and that comparative bargain. Give fact that the closest Nvidia competitor card is often well over 250, it is actually quite tough to recommend the more expensive GeForce GPU despite its better overall gaming performance. That is still a huge amount of money for most of us to spend on a single component for our gaming PCs. Sure, wed all love to be able to spend RTX 2080 Ti money without pause, but in the real world, even ducking under that 200 mark can be daunting. And at 200 level, AMD has market sew up, though maybe GTX 1660 will have something to say about that.

NoiseA PCE-318 meter is used to record noise levels when idle and while playing Gears of War 4.
OverclockingMaintaining out-the-box voltage, we increase the card's power target and aim for an optimal balance of core and memory overclock.

There is no competition here. Gtx 1060 offers Up masterclass in GPU efficiency, with our entire test system drawing 242W at most during the Hitman benchmark. Rx 580 was well behind, pulling 374W from the mains. In compact PC build, or cases with limited airflow, this will BE big deciding factor; GTX 1060 will generate substantially less heat than RX 580, which is why there are plenty more compact GTX 1060s on the market than there are RX 580s. It should BE said that RX 580 on test is very quiet, even under load, so that extra power doesnt result in cacophony.

Design & Cooling

But what about card?! Well Sapphires Radeon RX 580 Nitro + is a stunning piece of craftsmanship. Double dissipation, dual fan design has always been solid performer when it comes to noise reduction, and overall cooling potential, something quite obvious as soon as you look at just how high theyve managed to boost those base clocks to 580. The inclusion of black and white back plate really spruces up any build. Combine that with a simple single blue lead logo and Sapphire really have nailed it on this one. That say, it is nothing if not a touch bulky. And by touch, we mean good lord is big! It is still a two slot card, but the overall dimensions of this AIB configuration is just ridiculous in contrast to competition. Especially as we start to see smaller configurations from the likes of Gigabyte make it to market. What is impressive is that hefty overclock theyve leverage on base clock. Coming in at 1 340 MHz, this is a fairly substantial deal, and it is easy to see where they manage to leverage extra 10% performance over the last gen RX 480.

Final verdict

Ultimately, RX 580 is a card for those looking to upgrade to something capable of playing the latest AAA titles comfortably at 1080p. It is a nice subtle upgrade on last generations RX 480, fighting to retain that value per dollar crown. Although it doesnt quite hit the market for best bang for buck, for the performance it offer, its impressive price. For those looking for the high end? We can only hope this means Vega is closer than we originally think. Otherwise, this re - release strategy that AMD has pulled here would make very little sense, at least from nomenclature stance.


AMD Radeon RX 580

With a performance uplift of seven to 13 per cent comparing push - to - limit factory OC RX 580 to reference RX 480, top - end RX card just get better - but not dramatically so - and the increase in performance doesn't seem to warrant rolling out the whole new 500 series of GPUs. The Rx 580 is more of a replacement as opposed to the true evolution of the RX 480. Timing also feels a little strange, coming just 10 months after Polaris architecture's debut. Rx 480 was and is a really decent performer, and we would have preferred more capable successor little further down the line. For its part, AMD is positioning this as an upgrade for R9 380 and R7 370 owners, where performance uplift is substantial, but the same can be said for the existing RX product line too. On - paper benchmarks show RX 580 cutting into many of GTX 1060's performance wins while extending the lead it has with DX12. However, it's worth remembering that our Nvidia hardware is running at reference clocks when the market is packed with third party cards, many with their own factory OCs, which will muddy results somewhat, whether you re comparing RX 580 with its Nvidia rival, or indeed the outgoing RX 480. The problem with delivering only relatively small improvement in performance is that some existing factory - overclocked 480s could get uncomfortably close to RX 580 results, based on how well our standard reference 480 holds up. Establishing a new 500 - series line with limited performance gains also doesn't reflect well on true innovation to come - we know that AMD has new GPUs Base on Vega architecture coming in the second half of year, where we 'll find genuine architectural improvements that do more than just facilitate higher frequencies. These will be higher - end cards, but at some point, we will see that technology migrate down to the mainstream. However, in the meantime, RX 570 and RX 580 effectively represent holding pattern of sorts as opposed to genuine innovation. That's actually a little disappointing, bearing in mind how impactful RX 480 was in this market sector last year. In terms of recommendations to builders of potential mainstream Gaming PCs, overall outlook remains unchanged in the great Polaris vs Pascal shoot - out: RX 580 has generally better DX12 performance, but it is closer now in DX11 titles where Nvidia enjoys dominance. The price users pay is in efficiency, where the GTX 1060 is now way ahead, and Nvidia's DX11 driver continues to be less CPU intensive - something for those with less capable CPUs to consider in a world where DX12 support still only accounts for a minority of titles. However, in most cases, those with decent i5 - class hardware will get similar results between both RX 580 and GTX 1060 in most DX11 games, with performance differentials varying on game by game basis.

Battlefield 1

The Radeon RX 580 extends RX 480s lead over GeForce GTX 1060 6GB in Battlefield 1, contributing an additional 9% or so to the average frame rate. In fact, new Radeon RX 570 nearly pulls even to Nvidia card. Despite a slow start that affected our minimum frame rate measurement, Sapphire Nitro + Radeon RX 580 is 15% faster than Nvidias GeForce GTX 1060 6GB in Battlefield 1 using Ultra quality preset at 2560x1440. Both cards are playable, sure, but it looks like Nvidia needs a price advantage to keep the GP106 - base board competitive. Of course, were being specific to the 6GB model. Trimming 128 CUDA cores, eight texture units, and 3GB of GDDR5 really hurt the lower - end 1060, which was playable at 1920x1080 but has no business at 2560x1440.

Far Cry 5

The most recent Far Cry release, Far Cry 5, is surprisingly easy on mainstream graphics cards at 1080p. All three cards in our comparison manage healthy frame - rates of between 70 and 82 frames per second, with GTX 1060 at rear, RX 580 slightly ahead and RX 590 with the most commanding lead. That suggests adopting a more mid - range preset could allow you to take advantage of the high refresh rate 1080p144Hz monitor, which is exciting for game released in 2018. 1440p also works well enough, with the RX 580 scoring eight per cent better than GTX 1060. The game is even a few settings tweaks away from hitting 4K / 30fps on the RX 580, although I d be tempted to run the game at 1440p even on a higher - res monitor.

Rise of the Tomb Raider

Rise of Tomb Raider is the middle child in the series, with a three - part benchmark that isn't necessarily representative of actual gameplay - it's actually easier to run than full game. However, it's still a good way to see how Foundation Engine of 2016 is handled by these three cards, and gives additional context for the Shadow of Tomb Raider results we 'll look at later. In Rise, RX 580 and GTX 1060 are near - identical at 1080p, with scores of around 82fps, while the RX 590 remains around 10 per cent ahead. Benchmark is also playable at 1440p, although as we mention, full game might necessitate a few settings tweaks to attain the same average frame - rate.
