Radeon RX 580 

Released April 18, 2017
  • 1.3 GHz
  • 8 GB GDDR5
8.1 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.

SAPPHIRE's new Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ is a decent enough performance upgrade over AMD's own reference Radeon RX 480, but the overclocked and better cooled RX 480 Nitro+ from SAPPHIRE isn't much slower than the RX 580 Nitro.

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.
NVIDIA just finished launching their new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which provided better than TITAN X(P) performance for nearly half the cost ($699 vs. $1200) - and now we have custom GTX 1080 Ti cards like MSI's new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G that is beating both the GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition, and TITAN X(P).
