Nice! I just bought the Nitro last week for thanksgiving (US) for $209. Good deal I think considering I first found it for $280ish. It should arrive this Friday so I'm pumped!

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.

Was this video sponsored by intel? If yes. Did he really make a video on two amd graphics cards?
Efe Arıkan (9 days ago)

Is xfx rx 580 8gb black core edition better than nitro +?
Jermaine Moodie (17 days ago)
Subbed, this comparison was exactly what i was looking for. Thanks.
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!
Glass (12 days ago)
+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.
PlatinumDown (13 days ago)
+Glass the 8gb is for 230 and 4gb is for 190
Glass (13 days ago)
+PlatinumDown and how much is the nitro?
PlatinumDown (13 days ago)
Glass the black core edition is cheaper,its for $189.99
Glass (13 days ago)
+PlatinumDown generally people say the nitro plus is the best rx 5xx card you can get but the black core seems pretty good. What's the price difference between that and the nitro?

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.
wrxthh (17 days ago)
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?
Herman Iskandar (2 months ago)
I owned pulse version, but the noises is so loud when I'm playing such a demanding games and the temp stay about 60-80c. Is it normal?
Yeah. The Pulse uses the same cooler as Nitro 480 that everybody complained about, to redeem them selfs Sapphire created a new cooler for the 580.
Low Budget Gaming (2 months ago)
Perfect. This was just what I was looking for. I have been considering picking up the 580 and the price difference between the Pulse and Nitro+ is significant in my area.
Nitro+ special (blue) is more faster) i will take it)) thanks for video
Tiaan Strauss (2 months ago)
Bought the Nitro+ brand new on amazon for $160 + 2 free games 😎
Zod of Heaven (2 months ago)
Seems to me that the Pulse is the wise choice.
Depends, as it loud. Probably better then Armor or Dual but not a First Tier

I ordered a nitro from eBay for 115€ (4gb)
thegaddman (23 days ago)
+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!
emanuel corlat (23 days ago)
I think I'll just wait until the summer, maybe the prices will get better since for the price of a Nitro+ RX 580 I could just get a XFX RX 590
thegaddman (1 month ago)
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).
Mat Fen (2 months ago)
+Natty It has been used for 3 months non stop 24/7, but it's pretty good, so far no problems. I also sold my r9 280 on eBay for 80€ which I owned since 2013. I wanted to take the risk!
Natty (2 months ago)
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.

Zacarriss (3 months ago)
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.
Zacarriss (2 months ago)
+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.
Rares Gugu (2 months ago)
+Zacarriss hey, man. Could you please tell me what you think so far about the gpu? I am interested in getting one for myself
Zacarriss (2 months ago)
+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
DerScharfSchutzE (2 months ago)
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
Indian Vines (3 months ago)
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.

Stephan Dolby (4 months ago)
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.

Is it okay to buy second hand card like this from miner?
Nicholo Poriol (6 months ago)
KitGuruTech let's say im choosing deals at least was bought last 6 months ago. And still with warranty. Is it still good?
KitGuruTech (6 months ago)
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.

I suspect that will match the GPU integrated into the A10-7850K or A10-7800K in duel graphics mode. Hopefully these graphics cards are AMD based

I have the pulse and it was much cheaper in my area than the nitro+ .. I'm happy with it
Arashmickey (6 months ago)
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.
Abhi Jit (2 months ago)

I have that one ,if i dont conect 1x6 pin what will hapen .Can u tell me please?
Joe shmoe (6 months ago)
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.
Pc ColdWar (6 months ago)
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.

How is the 580 still carrying a cryptomining premium? They were released a year and half ago at a price of £219, surely AMD has got on top of supply by now?
spkt0r (6 months ago)
Miners are dropping these cards as well as Power Color's Red Devil on eBay. I got a few cards from the testing I just started they (sapphire 570, red devil 580) are doing really well so far.
Philip Loadwick (6 months ago)
+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?
Jolinator (6 months ago)
Memory cost
magottyk (6 months ago)
So basically the nitro + has better power delivery, better cooling, is quieter and slightly better overall clock speed for 15% higher cost.

Amith Kumar (23 days ago)
No it's actually the same..you don't feel the change
spkt0r (6 months ago)
The difference is only in cooling, if you setup you rig with decent case fans then you could just undervolt and try a little bit of OC.
