Radeon RX 580 

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

HBM2 is the memory technology that will be used on Radeon RX Vega, offering some great bandwidth numbers of up to 512GB/sec - but it'll be the memory footprint that makes the difference.

So, if you have 16GB of RAM you could dedicate 4-6GB of it, so it would - in a way - combine with the 8GB of HBM2 for up to 14GB of VRAM.

In The News From around the web

Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition = SEXY: You've got to give it to AMD... they have made one of the best, if not the best reference graphics card ever.
FreeSync + Radeon = Great Value: If you're a new PC gamer, then Radeon RX Vega 56 is a good - but not great value for money graphics card.
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.
Polaris was destined to be the new mid-range champion, and it became that - but not without multiple problems along the way.
NVIDIA continued pummel AMD with the push of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, and then AMD began teasing its Polaris GPU architecture - months after the company spun off its GPU division into Radeon Technologies Group.

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.
