In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB.

The GTX 1080 has a 414 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 580. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 86.4 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 GTX 1080 has a 414 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the RX 580. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 66.7 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 580 was released less than a year after the GTX 1080, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

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 GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB and the Radeon RX 580 8GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 1080 has 64.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 580, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 is much better than the RX 580.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB has 2560 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 580 8GB has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 6255 and the actual shader performance of the RX 580 is 3087. The GTX 1080 having 3168 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 580.

The RX 580 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1080. This means that the RX 580 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1080.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB requires 300 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 580 8GB requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1080 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 580. The GTX 1080 requires 150 Watts more than the RX 580 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1080 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 580.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's High-End GeForce GTX 1080, created by Asus.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit has been increased from 1607MHz to 1671MHz, whereas the Boost Clock can now achieve 1810MHz, instead of 1733MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
DirectCU III Technology with Direct-GPU Contact Heatpipes: Exclusive DirectCU III cooling technology features direct-GPU contact heatpipes that transports more heat away from the GPU and outperform reference designs, achieving up to 30% cooler gaming performance.

Performance
At 1920x1080, Benchmarks Indicate a 5.7% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 1080. This goes up to 7.4% at 3840x2160.
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.
