How well can the Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 8GB run games
AMD Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 8GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 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.

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

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 8GB. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2022. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 745 games in the list.

The Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 8GB graphics card is returning a reasonable performance on Days Gone at 1080p of 55 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Grand Theft Auto VI which we predict will get playable frame rates of 29 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular FIFA 22, which was getting 104 FPS under tests.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Days Gone on the Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 8GB to see that it got a playable set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 111FPS, M: 87FPS, H: 59FPS, U: 42FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Grand Theft Auto VI which we predicted will be weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 22 FPS. Finally we then took a look at FIFA 22 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were good at 79 FPS. Gaming at 1440p with the Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 8GB is one of the better graphics cards for gaming at this screen resolution. We will see 1440p Ultra and High settings across almost all current games.

How many years will the Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 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 MSI Gaming X 8GB? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 8GB.

Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X 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 MSI RX 580 Gaming X 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 MSI Gaming X 8GB central processing unit runs at 1257MHz and goes up to a top 1393MHz when in boost and turbo mode with the reference RX 580 card's boost is 1340MHz.

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 MSI RX 580 Gaming X 8GB 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.
