Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2019. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon RX 580 MSI Armor OC 4GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. The Radeon RX 580 MSI Armor OC 4GB can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 705 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the Radeon RX 580 MSI Armor OC 4GB is running Borderlands 3 and delivering playable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 44 frames per second. Comparing this to Planet Zoo which is getting reasonable results, where it averages 47 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Death Stranding, which is predicted to run at 31 frames per second.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon RX 580 MSI Armor OC 4GB to see how it performs on 1440p.

Radeon RX 580 MSI Armor OC 4GB 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 MSI RX 580 Armor 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 MSI Armor OC 4GB central processing unit runs at 1257MHz and goes up to a top 1366MHz when in boost and turbo mode with the reference RX 580 card's boost is 1340MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 1750MHz.


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 MSI RX 580 Armor 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.
