In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Sea Hawk 8GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 570 8GB.

The GTX 1080 has a 540 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 570. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 123.8 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1080 has a 540 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the RX 570. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 71.9 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 570 was released less than a year after the GTX 1080, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The Radeon RX 570 8GB and the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Sea Hawk 8GB Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 1080 has 99.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 570, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 is massively better than the RX 570.

The Radeon RX 570 8GB has 2048 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Sea Hawk 8GB Edition has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 570 is 2548 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 6383. The GTX 1080 having 3835 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 570.

The RX 570 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1080. This means that the RX 570 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1080.

The Radeon RX 570 8GB requires 120 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Sea Hawk 8GB Edition requires 180 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 570 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1080. The GTX 1080 requires 60 Watts more than the RX 570 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1080 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 570.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
First off we should point out that this is not the new AMD Vega graphics card line. These new AMD Radeon RX 500 series cards are an uprated version of the RX 400 series that they are replacing. This RX 570 graphics card is one of the higher performance models from the new AMD Radeon RX 500 Series.

The AMD RX 570 8GB graphics card released in April 2017 as an AMD performance gaming graphics card. This card competes against Nvidia's GTX 1050 Ti and replaces the older Radeon RX 470. As a Polaris refresh, the RX 570 runs at a slightly faster clock speed than the RX 470.

Architecture
It is powered by the 14nm Pollaris 20 GPU, which has 2048 shader processing units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1168MHz and goes up to 1244MHz, when the boost mode is triggered.

Memory
The RX570 comes with a 8GB frame buffer of GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
The AMD RX 570 has been built as a Mid/High performance graphics card for 2017. It will run most triple AAA titles released during 2017 on medium to high graphics at 1080p screen resolution. With adjustments and lowering anti aliasing this RX570 8GB card can confidently maintain 60+ frames per seconds on high graphic settings at 1080p. Moving to 1440p screen resolution and the graphics card may need to be adjusted down to medium in order to maintain 50-60+ fps.

System Suggestions
The RX 570 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a mid range R5 Ryzen processor and at least 8GB of system memory for optimal gaming performance from the RX 570.
Overview
GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Sea Hawk 8GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's High-End GeForce GTX 1080, created by MSI.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit has been increased from 1607MHz to 1708MHz, whereas the Boost Clock can now achieve 1847MHz, instead of 1733MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock has been increased from 1250MHZ to 1263MHz.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
Liquid cooling for the GPU and air cooling for the memory and VRMs.

Performance
At 1920x1080, Benchmarks Indicate a 5% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 1080. This goes up to 7% at 3840x2160.
