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 AMD Radeon RX Vega 8.

The RX 580 has a 326 MHz higher core clock speed and 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX Vega. This results in the RX 580 providing 106.5 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 326 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RX 580 providing 10.4 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX Vega 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 Radeon RX Vega 8 and the Radeon RX 580 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The RX Vega has 134.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 580, which means that the memory performance of the RX Vega is massively better than the RX 580.

The Radeon RX Vega 8 has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 580 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 841 and the actual shader performance of the RX 580 is 3147. The RX 580 having 2306 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 580 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX Vega.

The Radeon RX 580 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB requires 150 Watts to run but there is no entry for the RX Vega. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the RX Vega and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 580. The RX 580 has been recommended a PSU with 100 Watts more than the RX Vega. The difference is significant enough that the RX 580 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX Vega.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview Radeon RX Vega M GL is a dedicated Graphics processor found in Intel's Desktop 8th Gen G-Series CPUs. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed Vega M which offers 20 Compute Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 931MHz and goes up to 1011MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU utilises its own onboard HBM2 memory. Radeon RX Vega M GH has 4GB of second-generation High Bandwidth Memory, clocked at 1.4Gb/s. Sat on a 1024-bit memory interface, this provides total memory bandwidth of 179.2GB/s. Performance The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GTX 1050. Select the Specific Version you have of this Graphics Card According to your Processor for a more Accurate Rank and experience using our tools. System Suggestions We recommend 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon RX Vega M GH.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.
