AMD Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid to low level graphics card, the Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB is found in budget machines nowadays, struggling to meet AAA system requirements.

All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

What FPS performance can the Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB 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. This graphics hardware can run 449 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

The Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB graphics card is returning a weak performance on Battlefield 2042 at 1080p of 14 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Dying Light 2 which we predict will get playable frame rates of 30 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Resident Evil 8, which was getting 22 FPS under tests.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB at 1440p with Battlefield 2042, which got a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 27 FPS, Medium: 21 FPS, High: 14 FPS and Ultra: 10 FPS. We then checked out Dying Light 2 which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 60FPS, M: 48FPS, H: 32FPS, U: 23FPS. And another popular game was Resident Evil 8 that returned L: 44FPS, M: 35FPS, H: 23FPS, U: 17FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.

How many years will the Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB in your PC? This Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti. This PC hardware upgrade performs 60% better and can run 972 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB which meets 961 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 52% better performance.

Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

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 Gigabyte RX 580 Gaming 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 higher VRAM version, RX580 8GB available.

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

The Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB central processing unit runs at 1257MHz and goes up to a top 1355MHz when in boost and turbo mode. This makes it one of the fastest recorded RX 580s so far

The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 1750MHz.

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.

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. This puts the RX 580 4GB about 8% faster than the model it replaced, the AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB. Comparing the RX 580 to RX 570 we see 1440p frame rates around 8-15% better with the RX580 version

System Suggestions
The new Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB 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 R5 and at least 8GB of RAM for optimal gaming performance.
