Amd RX 580 is now smart elder statesman of current Radeon lineup, but when it first arrived, mildly updated Polaris GPU was actually bit of disappointment. Not only were we hoping 500 - series cards would herald new world of Vega - base Graphics cards, they were barely any different from RX 480 that had landed year earlier. But year and half, and crypto mining boom later, RX 580 has managed to deliver on fine wine promise that AMD attaches to all of its silicon. Its now Graphics Card that we would recommend as 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 comparatively huge pool of video memory and aptitude for dealing with modern Graphics APIs. And at just $190 it has very little competition in market, with Nvidias GTX 1060 only giving it pause in few DX11 titles and still being more expensive on whole. Even new GTX 1660 Ti struggles against its genuine value proposition. T do have little more competition in mainstream market right now, with AMD launching its new RX 590 Graphics Card. That just moderate 12nm die - shrink of Polaris GPU at heart of old RX 580, but it is also timely reminder that AMD mainstream Graphics cards are your best bet for great - value gaming performance right now. Even with 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 chopped TU116 GPU and $220 price tag. Dave has been personally and professionally breaking PC hardware since, oh, before were born.

AMD RX 580 verdict

There is no denying year since its launch, AMD RX 480 and its positioning in graphics card market has been hotly debated subject. Some of that is due to fact that its Polaris architecture effectively remains only lifeline Radeon fans can cling to in hopes that something more will eventually be around corner. However, much of consternation and hand wringing has been due to that cards positioning against NVIDIA's slightly newer GTX 1060. Well, today AMD is hoping to put that debate behind us with RX 580, spiritual encore presentation to one of their most popular and best - received GPUs of last few years. In order to understand RX 580s path to inception, you have to look back at somewhat troubled but ultimately successful RX 480. When it was launch, I praised it for focusing on value; it was actually one of first GPUs to cost less than $300 but provided excellent performance metrics in both 1080P and 1440P scenarios. Unfortunately, there were some speed bumps place along way, since we soon found reference versions draw excessive power from PCI - E slot and, at least initially, availability was sketchy at best. Things quickly turned around with multiple driver releases and just few months ago we discovered RX 480 had become card to buy, often beating out GTX 1060 in key gaming benchmarks. What RX580 strives to do is further capitalize upon wave of positive press its now - discontinue sibling received by providing more performance per dollar. To accomplish this, AMD us utilizes same Polaris 10 core we have all come to know and love, but through use of more mature 14nm FinFET manufacturing process, they have been able to offer substantially increased core frequencies. There is also more overclocking headroom for their board partners and end users to tap Into. Not only could positively impact overall value, but it could also help AIBs expand their selections of pre - overclocked Polaris - Base products. Rx 580 Isnt Only GPU Getting Brand New Coat Of Paint Either. Since it is based off of same yet slightly cut down version of Polaris 10 core, RX 470 will be making way for new RX 570. This review will focus on RX580 since my RX 570 sample arrived bit late and with Easter weekend upon me, there was just n't time to properly execute. Only Other Area Where Newer Polaris Products Differentiate Themselves From Outgoing Cards Is Within Their Power Consumption Algorithms. Older Polaris - Base GPUs feature simple 2 - state power system for their memory clocks wherein one was set for idle situations or extremely light workloads, whereas second state was reserved for higher performance situations. Unfortunately, this setup led to Memory entering its high performance mode when two displays were pluged in or when video decode engine was required for simple online video playback.

Conclusion

Radeon RX 580, XFX Model We Test, Provides Between 4fps And 11fps Improvement Compared To Previous - Generation Radeon RX 480 In Our Games Testing At 1080P And High Settings, Which Is Generally More Than You Can Expect From Typical Overclocking Of Stock Card. This bump, at least when looking at 8GB version of card, also helps Radeon RX 580 stay more or less even in terms of performance with competing NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060. In our testing, NVIDIA card do better on older DirectX titles, but AMD's latest pulls even or ahead in newer DX11 and DX12 titles. That leaves things, at this price point, more or less wash, as $229 starting price for AMD Radeon RX 580 is about in line with NVIDIA's pricing. To be fair, GeForce GTX 1060 Cards typically start at about $10 more, or $239. But we saw few such cards on Newegg and Amazon For {matheq}230,{endmatheq} 225, and even one Zotac GTX 1060 Mini on sale for $219. We suspect NVIDIA and AMD Cards will settle in closely in just as they are in performance. And Radeon RX 580 Cards will range in too; one we tested came in at $249. All that say, launch these new cards from AMD at this point has us scratching our heads. Sure, they are solid upgrades over 2015 - era Cards like Radeon R9 380 and R9 370, which is actually how AMD is pitching these cards to us: good upgrades for midrange Video Cards that are two or three years old. But same could be say, more or less, about existing Radeon RX 400 - series Polaris Cards. In general, these 500 - series cards tack on few frames per second at high settings at 1080P over Polaris Cards that came out little less than year ago. And these new cards consume more power to those extra handful of frames. More performance is always appreciated in graphics - card world. But it's hard not to see these RX 580 Cards, or at least XFX card we re looking at here, as rehash of 2016's still - very - good Radeon RX 480 Cards. Indeed, Radeon 480 further dings RX 580 by its very continued existence. Several 8GB models of that card are still available at this writing, some dipping RX 580's asking price. When we wrote this in mid - April 2017, we noted Sapphire Nitro 8GB RX 480 for sale on Newegg for $220, with $15 rebate that drop card to $205. Rx 580 is better card, but we are not sure it's worth paying $25 or $30 extra for it. So, in short - term, if you are in market for card in this price range for 1080P or 1440P gaming, you may want to check pricing on existing Radeon RX 480 Cards before clicking buy button.
