    So it uses more power than the 480? However the process change does seem to have given it roughly a 100MHz higher ceiling. Wonder how I compares to a updated 1060 6GB with the faster VRAM? Probably a good 5% faster on average.

    It's an OK card, but since I already have a 1060, I'll wait for Vega.

    Looks like a refresh done right! Performance is so close to the Fury and in some instances, surpassing it, it's insane! And... it even has decent headroom for overclocking!

    what i dont get , how every reviewer managed 2250 on the vram , meanwhile here i am with a msi gaming x 480 8gb and wont go over 2140stable , and other users report this to , got to love those chery picked samples reviewers get :D
    Tho on a side note , my rx480 can do 1450on gpu core(sadly fans go wild and make a lot of noisse to keep the gpu @ 72c)

    please add forza horizon 3 to the benchmarked games

    when forza horizon 3 will be listed on benchmarked games ? :bang:

    Terrible power efficiency ... Eats 20-30% more than Rx480 for like 5% more performance ?
    Not even trying to compare to GTX 1060/1070, must be like 60-70% difference in consumption.

    It has nothing to do with cherry picked samples. By default you assume the memory used is the same as on RX480, that is a wrong assumption. You'll notice most boards RX 580 will do 2250 MHz. Wait until you see some customer reviews.

    But my MSI RX480 Gaming X 8GB was reviewed here on guru3d , and in the review the memory reached 2250mhz , while i can't and many users cant go over 2150 w/e artefactig, so what should i get from it? that not all vram on the same model is the same?
    and that you just got lucky ? :D

    meh, too expensive for just a, almost, 480 rehash.
    I'd have probably rushed off to the nearest store/online order for my 2nd PC for a more reasonable ~200eu that would fit the lackluster performance. Wager these will actually retail closer to ~300eu

    They are between $250-300 here in the states. They can keep them at that price.

    These cards are decent but man they are hogs.

    If you mean power hogs , well i for one never really cared about power consumtion tbh, i am all about bang for the buck

    Typo

    Hilbert - in the overclocking the card section:

    In the above chart you can see relative performance difference in between a reference RX 480 card, thne the AIB RX 580 card and then added the applied tweak and this our overclocked results plotted in percentage.

    What a disappointing series. Such a marginal improvement over the RX400 series...

    They are not disappointing in my book:
    The 570 is as fast as the 480;
    The 580 is faster than the 480;
    Both are slightly cheaper;
    You now have a more balanced line-up with 580, 570, 560 and 550.

    I do agree Vega should have been here months ago.

    They are the same cards but with more consistent and higher performance, and lower launch prices. They're fine.

    I understand someone's perspective saying they're the same as 4xx but Nvidia does rebrands too and atm AMD can't afford developing another GPU. Ryzen had to come out and Vega is 1 year late (compared to Nvidia) so they really have to push Vega out. RX580 is a bit disappointing power consumption wise, but 570 is a killer deal of a GPU.

    570 is faster and much more attractive than a 1050ti, same goes for 580 vs 1060.

    If you take out a higher power consumption AMD is holding pretty good at mid segment, if only Vega was here to do the same with 1070/1080.

    Ordered mine yesterday. Since I'm upgrading from an R9 280 and was about to pull the trigger on an RX 480 anyways, the RX 580 made a lot on sense to me. Was leaning toward the MSI anyways as well. Anyone else notice that the motherboard manufacturers give better warranties on their graphics cards? MSI, Asus, and Gigabyte all give a 3 year warranty. Most of the rest give 2.
