The clock speeds of these GPUs are pretty much neck to neck but the Sapphire RX 580 8G Ultra Platinum Limited Edition comes out on top but it is a limited edition so you will be paying a premium for the exclusivity and enhanced performance. If you are looking for the best performance then look no further.

Sapphire takes the lead when it comes to the RX 570 as well with the Sapphire RX 570 8G Ultra White Gold OC that boosts to 1325 MHz. If you are looking for the highest clock speed then this is the GPU for you.

However, if you are looking for RGB and other aesthetics then you can check out Asus GPUs. The clock speeds are not as high but you are getting other cool features.
