10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black Core 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.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2022 popular games. This short Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black Core 8GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 753.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Forza Horizon 5 getting 49 FPS with the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black Core 8GB, FIFA 22 getting 104 FPS and Resident Evil 8 getting 29 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black Core 8GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Forza Horizon 5 where it was playable. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 98 FPS, Medium: 77 FPS, High: 52 FPS and Ultra: 37 FPS. We added FIFA 22 to our tests and saw it was good with a 79 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Resident Evil 8 which got 22 FPS at Ultra 1440p. 1440p Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black Core 8GB PC gaming is a solid choice of hardware for increased screen resolution gaming. We can see this graphics card is capable of delivering reliable frame rates at Ultra and certainly High graphics settings at 1440p.

How many years will the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black Core 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black Core 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 XFX GTS Black Core 8GB? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti which is 45% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 972 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black Core 8GB 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 38% better performance.

Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black Core 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 XFX RX 580 GTS Black Core Edition 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 XFX GTS Black Core 8GB central processing unit runs at 1257MHz and goes up to a top 1405MHz 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 XFX RX 580 GTS Black Core 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.
