gtx 1080 he win why rx 580
Ryzen only has 24 pcie lanes (vs 2011 at 40), which could be a dealbreaker depending on what else you want to stick on the mobo. Like I said, you get what you pay for.
Except that AMD's best $500 8-core Ryzen can hold its own vs Intel's $1600 10-core i7 and makes mincemeat of the rest. But hey, if you like paying more just for the sake of paying more... Isn't it painful to live with a stick lodged up your ass, though?
You get what you pay for. Like everything else AMD, it's a budget component meant for poor people (ie starving artists and students). Last AMD cpu I owned was when they were actually better than Intel's best offering (a $1000 fx-5950 back in 2005).This review is like comparing AMD's best $500 8-core Ryzen vs Intel's $1600 10-core i7. Amd is best bang for buck for sure if you don't need nukes but can make do with cap guns. Obviously if cpu's and vid cards could be paralleled to infinity with the power bill the only limit AMD would be the way to go. Sadly that's not the case, I've never seen a mobo with more than 4 sockets and 8 pci-e 8x card slots and at a ridiculous price tag for that since all those are server-grade/priced, which kills the cheaper cpu price advantage. And don't compare cheaper dual cards vs single bigger ones.. SLi/eyefinity doesn't come without cpu overhead and 2 in sli is not 2x faster than a single card. It's more like 1.8x, assuming ideal conditions with no bottlenecks. Returns diminish fast with triple and quad card setups (2.6 and 3.3x or so, depending on the game and drivers).
for the price...definitely. but don't ever compare 2 lower gpus with 1 higher gpu
MOney should be an obvious factor when considering these cards. Im an Nvidia fan, but if the 1080 is more than twice the price of the amd 580 then the AMD is obviously better. Two 580s would be cheaper then a 1080 and better
