In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 580 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 1030.

The RX 580 has a 5 MHz higher core clock speed and 112 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 1030. This results in the RX 580 providing 140.9 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX 580 has a 5 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GT 1030. This results in the RX 580 providing 20.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GT 1030 was released less than a year after the RX 580, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The RX 580 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce GT 1030, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX 580 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 580 has 192 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 1030, which means that the memory performance of the RX 580 is massively better than the GeForce GT 1030.

The GeForce GT 1030 has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 580 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 1030 is 578 and the actual shader performance of the RX 580 is 3147. The RX 580 having 2569 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 580 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 1030.

The RX 580 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 1030. This means that the RX 580 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 1030.

The GeForce GT 1030 requires 30 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 580 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 1030 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 580. The RX 580 requires 120 Watts more than the GeForce GT 1030 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX 580 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GT 1030.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce GT 1030 2GB is a low-end 1000 series Nvidia graphics card based on the first revision of the Pascal architecture. Architecture The first variant of the Pascal architecture succeeds the Maxwell architecture. Manufactured with a 16nm technology, it has a large L2 Cache, which allows NVIDIA to produce graphics cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient. GPU The GT 1030 equips a GPU codenamed GP108 and offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 64-bit memory interface. The central unit runs at 1252MHz and goes up to 1506MHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1250MHz. Features DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 30W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power. Release Price The GeForce GT 1030 is a low end graphics card that focuses on games requiring minimum graphics performance. Consequently the GT 1030 will come with a budget price tag and will be available from as little as $79.99.Overview
First off we should point out that this is not the new AMD Vega graphics card line. The new AMD Radeon RX 500 series are an uprated version of the RX 400 series that they are replacing. This HIS RX 580 IceQ X2 OC graphics card is one of the two more powerful models from the new AMD Radeon RX 500 Series.

This RX 580 is the 4GB version and there is also the higher VRAM version, RX580 8GB available.

Architecture
It equips a GPU codenamed Polaris 20 XTX, which has 2304 shader processing units, 144 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The Radeon RX 580 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB central processing unit runs at 1257MHz and goes up to a top 1366MHz when in boost and turbo mode, where as the reference RX 580 card's boost is a lower 1340MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 2000MHz.

Power Consumption
The RX 580 4GB has a power TDP requirement of 150W. This means it will require at least a 500W PSU with one dedicated 8-pin connector.

Performance
Early benchmarks indicate that the AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB will be similar in performance to the Nvidia GTX 1060 in terms of gaming performance. This puts the RX 580 4GB about 8% faster than the model it replaced, the AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB. Comparing the RX 580 to RX 570 we see 1440p frame rates around 8-15% better with the RX580 version

System Suggestions
The new HIS RX 580 IceQ X2 OC 4GB released on the 18th April 2017 and is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a high-end processor, like the new Ryzen R5 and at least 8GB of RAM for optimal gaming performance.
