How well can the Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 4GB run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 4GB is a high performing piece of gaming hardware, still confidently featuring in PC gamer computers. All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

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 Gaming X 4GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. This graphics hardware can run 746 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Need For Speed Heat getting 52 FPS with the Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 4GB, Diablo 4 predicted to get 32 FPS and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare getting 52 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 4GB performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Need For Speed Heat and saw it deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 104 FPS, Medium: 82 FPS, High: 55 FPS and Ultra: 39 FPS. We then checked the performance on Diablo 4 to predict if that will run well. It is predicted to be weak with a 24 FPS at Ultra 1440p. 1440p Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 4GB PC gaming is a reasonable performance fit for this resolution. Some of the more resource intensive games may well need a few graphical tweak to get the most out of the graphics card at this increased resolution.

Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 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 Gaming X 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 Gaming X 4GB central processing unit runs at 1257MHz and goes up to a top 1393MHz 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 Gaming X 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.
