AMD Radeon RX 580 Benchmarks, How Well Does It Overclock When Liquid Cooled?

The AMD Radeon RX 580 is a hot topic these days even though we all know at this point that it is a refresh of the previous RX 480. Here we are going to see how well the RX 580 overclocks when liquid cooled.

It is interesting to see that the AMD Radeon RX 580 seen here has a water block, something that we have not seen. Reports claim that this model of the AMD Radeon RX 580 is exclusive to China which is a bummer if you ask me.

Here we can see that the only difference between the AMD Radeon RX 580 and the RX 480 is in the clock speeds. The ID is different as well but that is not something related to hardware that we really care about.

AMD Radeon RX 580 Benchmarks

The GPU was able to go up to 1500 MHz but there was a bug in the Wattman software which would reduce the power to the card. Plus the GPU has only a single 8-pin power connector so that can be a limitation as well.

It has been confirmed that the GPU did, in fact, overclock to 1500 MHz but it was most stable at 1480 MHz. This could change with an update to the overclocking software. You can check out the benchmark results below.

AMD Radeon RX 580 Gaming Benchmarks

I am sure there are people that just want to know how well the GPU can run games and to make things simple here are two games that have been benchmarked using the AMD RX 580.

At 1080p running both games at very high settings, the RX 580 ran The Division at an average FPS of 61.8 and Rainbow Six Siege at 136 FPS on average.

You can check out the whole video below but be advised it is 3 hours long.

Let us know what you think about the AMD Radeon RX 580 and how well it overclocks.
