In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB.

The RX 580 has a 82 MHz higher core clock speed and 80 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 560. This results in the RX 580 providing 105.8 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 82 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the RX 560. This results in the RX 580 providing 21.4 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB and the Radeon RX 580 8GB were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The RX 580 has 6144 MB more video memory than the RX 560, 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 144 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 560, which means that the memory performance of the RX 580 is massively better than the RX 560.

The Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 580 8GB has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 560 is 1318 and the actual shader performance of the RX 580 is 3087. The RX 580 having 1769 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 RX 560.

The Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB requires 80 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 580 8GB requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 560 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 580. The RX 580 requires 70 Watts more than the RX 560 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 RX 560.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
\r\Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

\r\nGPU
\r\nIt equips a GPU Codenamed Polaris 21 which has 16 Compute Units activated and thus 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 16 ROPs. It has a small overclock to the boost clock speed of the RX 560, running at 1287MHz comparedto 1275MHz at stock clock speeds.

\r\nMemory
\r\nThe GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, 7GHz effective.

\r\nPower Consumption
\r\nWith a rated board TDP of 80W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no Extra Connectors are required.

\r\nPerformance
\r\This graphics card was designed and marketed towards the competitive MOBO gamers. A light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 900p screen res and expect around 45+FPS

\r\nSystem Suggestions
\r\Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. Higher resolutions will be an issue due to the limited 2GB of VRAM.. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
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 RX 580 8GB graphics card is one of the two more powerful models from the new AMD Radeon RX 500 Series.

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

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

GPU
The RX 580 8GB central processing unit runs at 1257MHz and goes up to 1340MHz when in boost and turbo mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 2000MHz.

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

System Suggestions
The new Radeon RX 580 8GB releases 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.
