AMD Radeon RX 580

Released in 2017, the Radeon RX 580 is a GPU from AMD. According to our GPU Benchmark, this GPU is an average card for gaming with a score of 22%.

The Radeon RX 580 has 8 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 250 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 256 bits. If you plan on gaming at higher resolutions with higher quality textures, more memory is important. Without enough memory, performance will be degraded.

In terms of clock speed, the Radeon RX 580 GPU core runs at a frequency of 1257 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1340 MHz. A clock speed is the frequency at which the GPU updates. A higher speed means more processing can happen per cycle. This is useful only when comparing cards of the same generation, as other architectures may process more or less per clock.

As for rendering API support, the Radeon RX 580 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.5 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.

This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 185W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
