As many will know it's been very hard to get hold of any RX 580 cards at a reasonable price for what seems an age.

I've had a few on pre-order from Amazon for while and in the end gave in and bought one from Scan (Sapphire Nitrol Plus, very happy with it for £275 delivered).

I was really surprised then to find this ASUS card in stock and ordered it for our second computer. (AMD cards work better with our video editing software).

Don't be put off by the Amazon reviews which have nothing to do with the quality of the card, just the massively inflated price they were being sold for previously.

Worth pointing out the card NEW is £40 (delivered) cheaper than a used version also selling on Amazon! Just goes to show how inflated in price these cards became.
Only the 4gb one though. For what I would use one for, i'd rather pay the extra 10 quid and get the 6gb zotac mini 1060 they have in stock

This is hot, as in the air coming out of the back of it, due to the amount of juice its sucking, and its TDP These are basically binned 480 chips that have had more voltage forced through them, and clocked higher. Stick with Nvidia.

Sorry I thought this was a deal site and you would advise me where I can get an RX 580 cheaper? Or maybe not ...

Yes, you are. Its still polaris, its the same manufacturing process, its just matured with better yields, and as a result, better binning.

Have to agree with this.

AMD are no threat to Nvidia at all, however this is a deal site and this is certainly a deal!

Great catch.!

this is ridiculous the 8gb version was less than 200, early this year

Surely that was the reference 480 model with blower?

there was an MSI OC 480 8GB version at £199.99 for a few weeks at one point - i think OCUK or similar.

edit - Novatech.

there was also the Asus version but that one had less than favourable reviews about acoustics and cooling

When I was doing my build in April you could get a 4gb 480 pretty much anywhere for less than 170 quid. Simple overclock and these would be a "580" so while this is a good price currently it's annoying that the miners are still inflating prices even nearly 4 months after it all went t*ts up.

I went for a used 970 in my build which I got for a hundred quid (would be over 150 now easily) but moved it on (for the same as I paid for it...) when I picked up a month old as new EVGA 1060 SC mini 6gb for 177 delivered. Same card new was 220 from novatech but the week after I bought mine they had it for 270!!!

I think it was only March that Amazon had a warehouse deal day on with as new 6gb 1060s for 160 and 1070s for less than 300...

Ah happy days...

That may or may not be true. I don't have a time machine though and I needed one of these cards so if you can point me to a cheaper one right now I'd be grateful.

No harm in pointing out other similar products if they are close price wise and may offer similar value and be of interest to others.
Deals are rarely in a vacuum and context can be helpful but some people can be a bit precious and defensive about their deals.

4 months late in the hardware industry is shocking.

I said you were clueless, but you assumed that's the part I was talking …I said you were clueless, but you assumed that's the part I was talking about?You're one of those, on the internet -- that pretends to talk about x topic, as if you have lots of knowledge on it, but you don't, and then people listen to you and then the stupid people multiply.



I have plenty of knowledge on the subject. i'd stick to either your consoles, or your love of vega, and defending amd
My order is due for dispatch today, I'm still half expecting it to be cancelled. I really hope not though as it's still the best 580 deal available, and there doesn't seem to be any real world disadvantage to 4Gb vs 8 unless you're planning on crossfire in the future. Should pair up very nicely with the freesync ultrawide I've got my eyes on :-)
It's been delayed...
Cancelled and just ordered a Gigabyte Aorus 4gb from Aria, £232 delivered but it's in stock and has RGB and a backplate. Let's hope this one comes through...

Edit - it's been dispatched and I have the tracking number for delivery tomorrow :-)
