Good price with the game and headset
I have a rx580 8gb. Runs everything at 1080 on ultra.
headset and borderlands make it very good value.
33% more expensive than the RX 570 deal with around 13% more performance... not too bad in the grand scheme on PC parts.

It's also 8GB not 4GB which is probably more important long-term, and it comes with the headset and game. Though it's a Gigabyte card, so expect it to fall to bits, XFX is much better.

Heh, probably not for 1080p. The processing power is much more important.

But this one does have 8GB vs 4GB. Depending on what games people want to play, and at what resolution, that might justify the extra expense.

You get 14% more CUs on the 580 (4 more) and the memory clock is 2000Mhz not 1750Mhz (the 4GB cards), so you're getting gains for core and mem. 4GB can bottlenecking now and large textures can fill that, it's why the 1060 and 1660 had been getting complaints for only having 6GB.

They're both 1080p cards really, more RAM is useful at the higher resolutions, sure. But 1440p performance and above is a little weak in 2019.

Only above 1080p really although, both the 570 and 580 are pretty long in the tooth any way. RAM isn't everthing, the 980 Ti is still a 18% faster card than the RX 580 @ 1440p despite having 6GB less RAM.

Like I said, it's a good enough deal to keep the perfomance per £ in the right bracket.

RX 570/580 are still great cards today, they don't run that hot for what they are. The 980 Ti was a good card but then it cost a fortune when it came out (a bit like the 1080 Ti is today) and uses a ton of power - you mean 6GB RAM not 6GB less don't you? RAM isn't everything - but you suggested the 570 is better value outright and I'm saying with the 580 here, the core is faster, the memory is faster and there's more of it plus you have the headset chucked in too. If you wanted a card now that would last you a while, you'd choose this and accept compromises in the future and it would still run games fine.

I didn’t say they weren’t great cards, I just said they’re getting on a bit for 1440p gaming.

To be honest, if you're comparing it for 1440p high settings gaming then yes, but I'd say 1080p high settings is well within reach of these cards and will be for a good while.

Says who? Gigabyte have UK based support and a better/faster RMA process along with a 3 year warranty. Does XFX have uk based support yet? As for Gigabyte cards falling to bits...my windforce has been fine since 2012. in any case, of all the brands to difer to I'm not sure I'd choose XFX over some of the rest.

Says me and countless other people who had the fans pack up on this exact model, almost always the rear fan. XFX don't use sleeve bearing fans. And Gigabyte's customer support was difficult and slow. But it's up to you.

Hang on - did you not mention this was an MI Edition / mining card! It probably doesn't matter as don't think Gigabyte did anything special for these cards, though Gigabyte seem to only warrant these cards for 3 months, but I guess you have Scan to fall back on.

yeah yeah you had a bad experience and now exaggerate things on the internet my 2012 motherboard and 2015 graphics card beg to differ (along with it's three fans). Anecdotes are anecdotes and Gigabytes warranty and RMA are superior.

Quite how problematic fans equate to "falling to bits" I'm not sure...

You had one motherboard and one GPU. We had 9 fail in the office. And if you bothered to Google it, the fans will either seize or can even fall off the spindle - I would call that 'falling to bits'.

Gigabyte's warranty on these MI cards are only 3 months so you're with the retailer after that. Their RMA process is useless as I tried to get a few returned and they were so obstructive and unhelpful just gave up and went to the retailer instead.

Funny how you can call mine anecdotal but you have had one GPU and motherboard that haven't gone wrong and are allowed to therefore claim they have the best warranty and 100% reliability.

I mean this looks pretty bad doesn't it - or maybe not to you?

look this thread and Trust pilot are indicative of ONE THING - that people with bad experiences will shout far louder than anyone else.

Gigabyte are a perfectly fine manufacturer that had an issue with some fans - that is NOT the same thing as them making shoddy products in the main with fall to bits.

Oh and I've been using Gigabyte products since I built my first PC in 1999 - I never said i used only two products but those two are STILL in use.

Ok, I made it up and you're an IT Manager - this must be the most popular job in the UK! Would you like to see the RMA list from Amazon for my business?

Who would run these in their office? Someone who wants to game outside hours or use them in content creation scenarios? Someone who builds PCs? Now, normally I wouldn't bother rising to it but here's a pic of the boxes of them and that's a Gigabyte Gaming RX 570 with broken fans in the middle of them that's out of warranty.

But you're not bothered because I made it up. Reverse image search it if you want to see where I stole it from. Have a great day

Bit of a difficult one as with the new consoles coming out soon the goalposts will move, PC gaming will take a bigger step up to complete. I imagine both Sony and MS will put GPUs more powerful than this in their consoles.

You're probably right. It looks like consoles will be using a unified architecture as before but right now, Polaris cards are excellent value and right in the sweet spot. I think even if consoles push the boundaries, you'll still be able to make good use of an RX 570/580 for a while just running things lower quality and with a good chunk of memory you'll be able to hold the textures needed for next gen games.

Long-term, I'd rather have a cooler running card like an RX 580 than something brutally fast and powerful (but cheap) like an R9 390 8GB - I have one of those just sitting in a drawer...
The NVIDIA 1660 Super is due to be available October 22nd. There is a rumor it is being sold for 1100 Yuan, which is 150 pounds.

If this is true, it will blow up this price point. Obviously this is a ludicrous price point compared to the current NVIDIA pricing models, but if it is true, it will be the best value card at this price point. It'll end up being between a 1660 (10%) and 1660 ti (21%), both of which are faster than the 590, let alone the 580.

If you can hold off just to get the price confirmation from NVIDIA, you may get a huge downward push for the 580 and 590 as well.

You honestly think,that price will go directly from juan to sterling?Who knows,if Intel just announced new cpus for half the price maybe Nvidia will finally put prices right?If that will happen it will only show how Amd affects the market.

It doesn't need to go directly from Yuan to Sterling. But at 150 quid, even if it translates 20% higher (import fees are often around that) we are talking a sub 200 quid card. At the *very* least, it's worth waiting for both the 5500 from AMD and the 1660 Super to see if their pricing disrupts the 580 and the other lower tier cards.
