26 Nov 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon RX 580 8GB is a high performing piece of gaming hardware, still confidently featuring in PC gamer computers. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Here is a performance review on how capable the Radeon RX 580 8GB is at running the more popular games of 2020. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 749 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

A Radeon RX 580 8GB card at 1080p is seeing a reasonable frame rate when running Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on Ultra - 57 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Grand Theft Auto VI which is 27 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular FIFA 21 performs on this hardware, which gets a strong 162 FPS.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the Radeon RX 580 8GB ran Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War to a playable performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 115 FPS, Medium: 90 FPS, High: 61 FPS and Ultra: 43 FPS. Another game researched was Grand Theft Auto VI with predictions of L: 53FPS, M: 42FPS, H: 28FPS, U: 20FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on FIFA 21, which returned L: 277FPS, M: 231FPS, H: 169FPS, U: 123FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 580 8GB we get the impression that it is easily capable of pc gaming across these screen resolutions. Turn the game settings up to Ultra at 1440p. This GPU is also capable of running a solid FPS across a lot of games at 4K resolution as well.

Radeon RX 580 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

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.
