In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB.

The GTX 1080 has a 451 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 580. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 92.3 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 451 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the RX 580. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 69.1 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 580 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 GTX 1080 has 4096 MB more video memory than the RX 580, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1080 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1080 has 99.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 580, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 is massively better than the RX 580.

The Radeon RX 580 4GB has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 580 is 3087 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 6383. The GTX 1080 having 3296 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 580.

The RX 580 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1080. This means that the RX 580 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1080.

The Radeon RX 580 4GB requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition requires 180 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 580 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1080. The GTX 1080 requires 30 Watts more than the RX 580 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 1080 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the RX 580.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
First off we should point out that this is not the new AMD Vega graphics card line. The new AMD Radeon RX 500 series are an uprated version of the RX 400 series that they are replacing. This RX 580 4GB graphics card is one of the two more powerful models from the new AMD Radeon RX 500 Series.

This RX 580 is the 4GB version and there is also the RX580 8GB version available, offering more VRAM for your gaming performance.

Architecture
It equips a GPU codenamed Polaris 20 XTX, which has 2304 shader processing units, 144 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The RX 580 4GB central processing unit runs at 1257MHz and goes up to 1365MHz when in boost and turbo mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 2000MHz.

Power Consumption
The RX 580 4GB has a power TDP requirement of 150W. This means it will require at least a 500W PSU with one dedicated 8-pin connector.

Performance
Early benchmarks indicate that the AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB will be similar in performance to the Nvidia GTX 1060 in terms of gaming performance.
