Radeon RX 580 

Released April, 2017
  • 1.3 GHz
  • 8 GB GDDR5
8 Out of 10

This is one area I really don't like, is that SAPPHIRE requires a 6+8-pin PCIe power setup, and uses more power than NVIDIA's much faster GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition.

The new GTX 1060 with its 6GB GDDR5 @ 9Gbps is a new release, and beats the RX 580 - but AMD has some nice tricks up its sleeve which make the Team Red purchase a much sweeter one.

In The News From around the web

Prey has been heralded as one of the best games of 2017 so far, and in a world where we haven't had a System Shock game for over a decade, and without a new BioShock game - and after the disappointing Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Prey is here in great form.
It's an incredibly well-optimized game that runs beautifully smooth on even mid-range graphics cards like the Radeon RX 580.

SAPPHIRE Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ Review

It's designed for up to 300W of power, which explains the 8+6-pin PCIe power connectivity, but it's just disappointing to see a ceiling at 1505MHz.
I do wish the PCIe power connectors were on the end of the card again, as it looks sleek as hell in my system.
It's also an incredibly confusing naming scheme that NVIDIA has adopted, but before I get into that - let's look at NVIDIA's previous TITAN X graphics cards, and their official (and unofficial) names.
AMD will thump down its new Vega architecture with a truly next-gen series of graphics cards in the Radeon RX Vega family, led by HBM2 and HBC technologies.
