22 May 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon RX 580 MSI Armor 8GB is a high performing piece of gaming hardware, still confidently featuring in PC gamer computers. All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

How well will the Radeon RX 580 MSI Armor 8GB run 2020 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 807 games in the list.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the Radeon RX 580 MSI Armor 8GB is predicted to run Mafia: Definitive Edition with reasonable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 50 frames per second. Comparing this to Grand Theft Auto VI which is predicted to get playable results, where it averages 29 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Cyberpunk 2077, which is predicted to run at 33 frames per second.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the Radeon RX 580 MSI Armor 8GB will run the upcoming game Mafia: Definitive Edition to a playable performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 101 FPS, Medium: 79 FPS, High: 53 FPS and Ultra: 38 FPS. Another game researched was Grand Theft Auto VI with predictions of L: 58FPS, M: 46FPS, H: 31FPS, U: 22FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Cyberpunk 2077, wih estimates revealing L: 66FPS, M: 52FPS, H: 35FPS, U: 25FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a Radeon RX 580 MSI Armor 8GB is a reasonable performance fit for this resolution. Some of the more resource intensive games may well need a few graphical tweak to get the most out of the graphics card at this increased resolution.

How many years will the Radeon RX 580 MSI Armor 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 580 MSI Armor 8GB in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

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