AMD Radeon RX 580 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 8GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the Radeon RX 580 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 8GB is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p.

DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

What FPS performance can the Radeon RX 580 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 8GB get on latest AAA 2022 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 748.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon RX 580 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 8GB can run Dying Light 2 at 1080p and predict it will return playable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 95 FPS, Medium: 75 FPS, High: 50 FPS and Ultra: 36 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Grand Theft Auto VI is predicted to return a playable 28 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Dying Light 2 to predict how the Radeon RX 580 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 8GB would deal with it. Our research revealed a playable series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 72 FPS, Medium: 57 FPS, High: 38 FPS and Ultra: 27 FPS. Next we looked at Grand Theft Auto VI which we predict will be weak with a 21 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Forza Horizon 5 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 37. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 580 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 8GB we get the impression that it is a reasonable choice for most modern games at 1440p, but you may encounter some need to adjust graphics settings down from Ultra to High in some cases to improve gaming stability.

How many years will the Radeon RX 580 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 580 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 8GB in your PC? Upgrade time for this GPU is currently placed at 2 years

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 580 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 8GB? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti which is 46% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 972 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively we would suggest getting a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, as it can run 961 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 39% increased graphics performance.

Radeon RX 580 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
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 ASUS RX 580 ROG Strix Gaming OC graphics card is one of the two more powerful models from the new AMD Radeon RX 500 Series.

This RX 580 is the 8GB version and there is also the lower VRAM version, RX580 4GB available.

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

GPU
The Radeon RX 580 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 8GB central processing unit runs at 1257MHz and goes up to a top 1380MHz when in boost and turbo mode. This makes it one of the fastest recorded RX 580s so far

Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 2000MHz.

Power Consumption
The RX 580 8GB 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 8GB will be similar in performance to the Nvidia GTX 1060 in terms of gaming performance. This puts the RX 580 8GB about 8% faster than the model it replaced, the AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB. Comparing the RX 580 to RX 570 we see 1440p frame rates around 8-15% better with the RX580 version

System Suggestions
The new ASUS RX 580 ROG Strix Gaming OC released on the 18th April 2017 and is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a high-end processor, like the new Ryzen R7 and at least 8GB of RAM for optimal gaming performance.
