One year later I finally got an rx580 on my 2010 i5-750 system. Got a rx560 instead last year at normal MRSP. Crazy miners, ironically I got this rx580 from a miner... (Who told me this is not used mining... And I found out.... Idiot.)

Why not 560/550 on those machines?

hey there... i just upgraded from Sapphire Nitro R7 370 4gb to the Sapphire Pulse Rx 570 4gb, now that the mining fever has passed and the MSRP are back in town (short of) I have to say that i needed to overclock my 370 up to 1075mhz (which for anyone who knows its on the verge of the "limit" allowed by factory GPU BIOS that will crash at 1100mhz -which was a response to the extreme overclock HD 7850 allowed up to 1200mhz which ended up devouring the higher tier 7870- but back to the topic) and then, with that OC i was playing triple A tittles at something like 45ish fps at high settings give or take some fps and some higher or lower quality stuffs depending on tittle... and the newest game i tested it was Far Cry Primal about 2 or 3 monts ago. When i purchased the Rx 570, i realized what Sapphire did with their "pulse" edition... they are "naked" (no RGB no dual BIOS no factory OC) Nitro Cards... they have the same carcass but they removed all the fancy features that make the Nitro+ a little more expensive... Even my R7 370 box was quite more fancy than the Rx 570 one. But the compromises made to cheapen the price does not affect the natural headroom any dual fan GPU has to overclock at least an 8 to 10% the core and a 10 to 15% the memory. All in all, the raw performance at a friendly price it is exactly what anyone should need Now with the Rx 570 i play 1080p 60fps (or more, about 75 avg and 57 min on all the games i tested) constant at ultra (MSAA Off which btw noone should use except if playing with GTX1080ti on 1080p 60hz monitor) on every single game i tried. I could try to overclock, but its just me and my need of pushing the hardware to the limit... not a real gaming need by no means. The rest of my rig: Fx8350 @4.4 W/212 Evo Asus Sabertooth 990Fx R2 16gb HyperX Fury 1866 cl10 120gb SATA3 SSD / 1TB 7200rpm HDD Kelyx 22' 1080p 60hz 5ms response display

Prices have dropped to USD$260 for a MSI 8G OC Armour Mk II with much better cooling. I think that was MSRP when released.

Are these cards were made for mining?

after more than a year since this review, the prices for these cards are now MSRP. >_<

one of the best reviews. I already have a sapphire RX 570 8GB and it is great. As for budget setup, I am from the Philippines and for some reason Ryzen processors cost the same or more than an Intel processor and it is the same with GPU. This can hurt AMD....

185 - 190 watts for the RX 580? Jezzus. I have the ASUS Strix OC RX 580 and it never goes over 180 watts. Usually pulls 160 - 170 while gaming. WTF did Sapphire do? LOL
California Dreaming (6 months ago)
Will a 1000 watt power supply run 6 of these cards or is that pushing it?

Helpful video - currently looking to upgrade my 7850 from 2012. Is this a worthy upgrade given current prices or would a 1070ti be worth the extra money? 2560x1080 gaming here, want more than the 45fps I'm currently getting in PUBG on low everything. Cheers.

TOBORE8THMAN (1 year ago)
If you have a OEM machine and want to upgrade your graphics with a 570 or 580 card, spend another $75 on a good 80 bronze 500 watt power supply.

I got my pulse RX 580 8GB for 105 pounds from amazon YEAH!!! :P Thats what I call budget gaming :P

Well if it helps with the analytics... Wendel you helped me a lot to get more interestet in Computer technic, builds and other technology based subjects. As a Chef who just a fewe years a go didnt have any knowleg of PC Hardware i can say: if not for you i wouldnt have build my own PC and wouldt be saving now to buld my next one. Thanks!
Kakazou Heinou (1 year ago)
at 7:10 or so you talk about something you know nothing about. 1080P uses the most CPU in games, period. 1440p and 4k all run lower framerate and use alot less CPU. 120 fps in 4k will use the same FPS as 120fps 1080p or within 1-2% so if you can run 1080p 120 you dont need an upgrade at all if you're going for 4k or 8k or 16k but it might feel better to not have a old cpu with very expensive GPU setups.

with rx480 cards in many cases specially if you had older PSU, you have to have PSU which has more amps on rail(s), that solved problems with POST or ingame crashing for many people, in my case i had older Seasonic S12 500 Watt but it had two 12V rails with 17 amps on each instead of single 24v rail with more amps, i replaced it with cheapo office grade corsair VX500 which had single 24v rail and more amps, system now works like a charm. But since this CX PSU used in this video is better then the one i have, problem lies elsewhere.

HP doesn't want you to upgrade your GPU in their computer. They want you to buy another HP.

Can you guys do a video going over AMDs new video encoding hardware that is featured on these cards? I want to see how well it encodes h.265.
Wind Lord (1 year ago)
I have a gtx 970 and a Korean 1440 monitor with freesync. Is the 580 worth it for the ~100$ upgrade cost (after selling the 970) to take advantage of the freesync? i.e. Is freesync worth the difference.
Roy Alcantar (1 year ago)
they should add usb stick
PowWowChicken (1 year ago)
Hey Wendell the reason why those GPUs will not boot is because the proprietary power supply and the motherboard. They need a extra 12v at some weird location on the motherboard that their power supply adds.

This video speaks right to me. I have a PC I built in 2011: i5 2500, GTX 560Ti, 16GB ram, etc.. I've always thought I needed a full upgrade, but this made me seriously consider just upgrading the GPU (maybe throw in an SSD for windows). Thanks for the eye opener!

What are they like outside of gaming, for rendering, video and photo editing etc? I see Apple will be supporting these on the next OS release, which is great for the old MacPro cheese graters.

Maybe someone can help me, I have a R9 380 and am using a Vizio 120hz TV. "I know its 120hz because the box was right next to the same TV with 60hz on the box" any ways I had my old nvidia gtx 650 running 1080p @120hz hdmi. through custom res, and ive tried this on my R9 380 and cant get it to work, same tv, and tried the hdmi and dp, most i can get is 100hz

Still sticking to my 480. If they supported it in Linux on AMDGPU, it might be fun to get a 580 for cross fire.

You probably need to start doing cryptocurrency-mining benchmarks on these cards - no one else gets to buy them these days anyway :P

i actually got a dell workstation that had a broken mobo for 40$ had an i7 4770 and 8Gb ram,got myself a new mobo for 45$ and a new psu for 30$ on amazon(dint trust the dell PSU) and a gtx 970 for 120$ and got myself a prettygood gaming pc recently ordered some new ram 16Gb since 8 its not cutting it anymore
Jason Blades (1 year ago)
Shame about the no posts. I'm currently running an R9 280 on a 1680 x 1050. Looking to upgrade to 1080 or 1440 soon. Waiting to see Vega before I buy a new GPU though.
darian redmond (1 year ago)
So like i know a 290 is still capable today, but would a 580 be an okay upgrade at 1440p?. My current 290 is sturggling, plus the drivers have really been screwing with the stability of it. Also cannot overclock it as high anymore.
herbrjr (1 year ago)
This video is a waste. cryptocurrency miners have driven the cost of these cards into the $700 range. just buy an NVIDIA card right now.

i'll be waiting on VEGA - currently, still using a R9 270x Sapphire 2GB Dual-X ... good enough with adjusted graphics for almost any 1080p game - it still died on me almost 15 months ago - baked it once works perfectly since
PC PAYLOAD (1 year ago)
Even if you can find these in stock the prices are x2 what they should be. Thanks Miners! I was looking to at very least test run 2 RX580's in Crossfire to bench gaming, comparability and scaling.. Looks like "Wait for Vega" is back on.

Can't you switch the BIOS from UEFI to Legacy on the Sapphire cards? If it is set to Legacy mode I think it will work with older motherboards.

Lesson of the Video: DO Not buy brand name PC's since they truly are incompatible with anything. Build your own Pc from Parts. They're comparatively cheaper and better, since they're upgradable.

"very affordable" ...not while the miners have their say with them ;)
other tomperson (1 year ago)
Wait... are you really saying that they have sectioned off software support for the 480 compared with the 580 to give the 580 an artificial boost in performance compared with the 480, despite being the exact same hardware? That's disgusting. And people hold AMD up as pro-consumer paragons!?

Phrashee Kwerk (1 year ago)
heh, i Dont generally do forums and have little intrest in doing so, so i leave my comment here........ I got a HP Compaq 8200 elite convertible minitower (thats what it says on the serial no sticker) from a surplus store (sandy bridge, 3.4ghz).... I bought a xfx 580 card and it works fine it.. however i have added a external power supply as the hp systems use their own power connectors on the motherboard (not the standard atx). and there is no 6pin or 8pin plugs on the hp power supply. not only that the hp supplyh is only 330 watts, so it seemed a little risky to even try and power both the system and the card with it. Works great... i'm hashing coins with it 24/7 so i know it works well. tho;ught others would want to know...dont feel like treading through all the BS that is usually on the forums..got better things to do...
