Americans get much better priced tech than here in the UK where the mark up is a rip off, probably down to EU import tarrifs plus 20% vat tax. Best price I can find the Nitro from a retailer new today is £225 whereas the Pulse is £230. Should I still buy it or is there something better worth holding out for? I prefer the AMD FreeSync 2 route over Gsync due to Gsync monitors being around £100 more.
if your going to be gaming at 1080p and playing games like CSGO, team fortress, quake champion ( on low/med), Overwatch and other less demanding games. THESE cards are perfect. I really like the Nitro+. Im thinking about grabbing one and put it against my 1080 ( of course i know which one will win). But i just wanna do it anyway!
+PlatinumDown If the xfx model you're talking about is the 8gb version, I would just go with that. You can pony up the extra cash for the nitro 8gb for the slight increase in performance, cooling and noise reduction but you can't go wrong either way.
I just bought the Nitro + 590 because i got 3 games with it. When i get my taxes im going to hand it down to my daughter and get something with a bit more oomph. Its a nice card though i recommend it to anyone needing a gpu on a budget. Its 259$ american and you get The Division 2, Resident evil 2 (remake) and Devil may cry 5 with it until april 6th the game deal is going.
D K I recently been looking at graphics cards because I’m going to build a new pc soon I might have to hop on that it’s a bank for your buck but I have a question can that Gpu be paired with a ryzen 7 2700x?
I bought my Nitro+ at launch for MSRP (249)..it runs at 1411 on the better bios switch.
The other bios was modded for mining.
I got my money back from mining during the day when at work..and mining at night.
And enjoying gaming in the evening..a decent 1440p card
Which among 1. SAPPHIRE PULSE RADEON RX 580 8GB GDDR5, 2. GIGABYTE RADEON RX 580 GAMING 8GD (REV 1.0/1.1) 3. MSI RADEON RX 580 ARMOR 8GB OC DDR5 and 4. SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RADEON RX 580 8GB GDDR5 will be the best for video editing and rendering with after effect and premier pro cc 2019 64-bit version?
+emanuel corlat good call bro, also now it's worth considering the GTX 1660, since the rumoured price is about 200, and AMD will also be dropping their prices of 580 and 590 too. Not to mention when Navi comes out there'll be so many options!
When buying from these cryptominers, just ask them directly how they've been using it, for what lengths of time, under what frequencies etc. and judge based on that. Some sellers are really open about this which is a good sign. Also Amazon marketplace has good buyer protection, so if something does go awry you can get your money back pretty easily (not sure about eBay's system, if someone else can enlighten that would be nice).
Yeah I looked on Ebay, but most of them have been hammered 24/7 by miners who are now selling them off since the market for cryto currency has collapsed. Not worth the risk if its been abused & you have no warranty to fall back on.
I have the Pulse and Frankly a Light Clock Boost to 1411 and the cards performance is Identical, a custom fan curve later and I can run it at that speed no issue. I can also get it to 1475 and the noise is the issue not the temps.
+Rares Gugu It depends firstly, if your monitor is a 1080p you can expect stonking good performance with good settings at or above 60fps, with it or a GTX 1060, either one's great, both are decently capable at 1440p though I do not recommend it at any resolution higher than that...
If you are looking to get an Rx 580 don't expect it to be the greatest card, it's Upper Mid-Range plain and simple, no fuss gaming at 1080p, if you can get the 8gb Model under 200$ go for it, if you can get a 1060 go for it though I will personally suggest the Rx 580 on account of it's more unique features like chill and Wattman if your not into MSI afterburner... This does not mean the 1060 is a bad choice either, I got the 1050 Ti as a Back up card... Pretty good for a Budget... The GTX is a Good Over Clocker.
The Rx 580 is simply Solid All-round out of the Box and while it can't clock much faster than 1500mhz it's got some serious grunt in the Memory Hash Rate...
My next card is probably going to be a Navi as I don't feel like paying the Scalper Fee for the 2060...
Hope that helps though what is your current card and specs... If it's older than 5th Gen AMD or Intel then well... You want to avoid Bottlenecks.
+DerScharfSchutzE Interesting, I managed to Undervolt my Pulse by -18mv and still get 1400mhz stable even which for the pulse is still more than the base 1366... So I've Squeezed the best out of both worlds... I figure Sapphire has a stock overvolt of at least 20mv... Pretty sure I am not going to complain when most of the competitive games I play are at or over 100fps at Decent Settings
I got my nitro to 1500mhz with some heavy overclocking and overvoltage but its not really worth it imo,the card takes any game at high 1080p over 60 fps. Unless its an Nvidia game but they got the drivers coming and that fixes the issue.
Its a better buy than 1060 anyway, TeaM rED
I am confused please help me i am getting rx 580 sapphire edition for 314$ and rx 580 aorus edition for 281$ which one should i go the sapphire edition has oc and has base clock 1411 mhz and aorus one has 1350-80mhz around so which should i consider , the prices are based on indian currency value,please reply asap!
Also tell about temps of both cards
could you leave the graphics on screen longer and when comparative information, leaving them on the screen helps because you keep talking while you hasve to remember what the comparitive information was.
At the moment, using Amazon.co.uk as a guide, the Nitro+ Special Edition (blue, like the 590) is £182, £196 for the one in this video, and the Pulse is... £274. The Special Edition is clearly a no-brainer in this instance. No game bundle through Amazon, however.
They are good cards, but if you are buying it from a miner, it is likely to have been running 100% for a very long time, which would mean the fan has had a lot to do. Depends on how old it is, and if you are getting a good deal and he will cover it for damage when you get it. Pay by paypal is likely your best bet for cover.
Great comparison, but there's a couple more interesting details: the 6-pin power connector on the nitro+ is optional. Also you can buy nitro gear accessories for the nitro+ and the pulse, but the is pulse only supports the replacement fans while the nitro supports the fans and the custom backplate. Finally I heard these cards are undervolt very well but I haven't looked into that.
The chips dont scale well past ~1300 mhz. (diminishing returns in performance) Better to drop the voltage and then try o/clocking mildly, increase vram voltage a smidge and o/clock that,.. Basically just get them more efficient. The performance difference between these two will be tiny but the nitro might be even quieter set up like that.
little soft is so easy to use and in that matter probably the best one out there got the rx 570 8gb and was able to lower vcore about 10mvolt and get 1380 and ram at 2000mhz was about same performance than a stock and did not feel the card hot at all now i run a rx 570 4gb strix oc from asus and really not the same build quality very simple sapphire is the only compagnie now to have a premiun strong build in polaris line up thx to nividia gpp msi get there premiun msi twin frozen not available here same goes for the extreme edition from gigabytes which left only the asus 3 fan over priced and nitro the sweet spot for amd card sadly for me they where a to big margin to justifie the nitro premiun for 30$ more nitro+ is worthy but you can find cheaper card for nice price tang on the used market may not apply sadly againt more than likely nitro+ was a miner choice card so you may worry that a card been run for many month have less life spawn for the futur.
+Jolinator yeah that will be a big factor for sure. There's a hell of a lot of money to be made if you can start up production of memory. Are chips and memory really that different? Couldn't GoFlo switch to producing RAM as no one seems to be using them to make chips at the moment?
You do not need to calculate payroll premium if your policy is on a stipulated billing cycle.
Sample Payroll Report.
However, if your policy is not yet on a stipulated billing cycle, this is typically what you will see when we send you a payroll report.
A split payroll report is sent when there is an Anniversary Rating Date on your policy, which is the month and day that rates, rating plans and rating systems are initially applied to a policy in force and each annual anniversary thereafter. Your payroll will need to be annotated for each period specified.
