RX 580 review roundup

The embargo on the AMD RX 580 has just been lifted and we are going to check out the performance of the GPU and what reviewers have to say about the card. Here is our AMD RX 580 review roundup.

We know that the AMD RX 580 is a refresh of the RX 480 but AMD claims that the improved 14 nm FinFET process allows the GPU to reach higher clock speeds and the RX 580 runs 100 MHz higher than the previous RX 480.

This is not a major improvement but still we have a new GPU series at our hand giving consumers more options to choose from.

RX 580 review roundup

The AMD RX 580 has the following specifications:

  • 36 compute cores
  • 256-bit memory interface
  • 1257 MHz base clock
  • 1340 MHz boost clock

In essence, the 8 GB version of the RX 580 matches the performance of the GTX 1060 6 GB and the RX 570 matches the performance of the 3 GB version of the GTX 1060. Considering the price of the RX 580, it is great value for money and if you are on a budget, I can see why you would go with team Red.

You can check out reviews of the AMD RX 580 from the sources below.

If you are on a budget and need the performance similar to that of the GTX 1060 6 GB, then the AMD RX 580 is a great GPU for you. The GPU costs $229 which is very competitive looking at the competition plus you are also getting VR capabilities without paying anything extra.

It is safe to say that if you are only going to be playing games at 1080p then this GPU will last you a couple of years and will be able to run upcoming titles at decent frame rates. There will be some titles that you can play at 1440p as well but at lower frame rates. That is a trade off that you will have to pay at this price point.

Let us know what you think about this AMD RX 580 review roundup and whether or not you are interested in getting one of these GPUs.
