Features Fuse protection

In order to protect your card, the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ series cards have fuse protection built into the circuit of the external PCI-E power connector to keep the components safe.

Robust VRM Cooling

The SAPPHIRE NITRO+ cards are designed with robust VRM cooling and have a high thermal conductivity pad on the backplate to take away the heat efficiently and effectively.

New Tri-XX

New Tri-XX adds two new gaming modes: Power and Stealth. In Power mode Tri-XX relaxes the power limit so that you get the best possible performance with no compromise - ideal for those must win situations.

In Stealth mode you still get the great gaming performance you expect but with greater power efficiency for fully immersive gaming.

Precision fan control

Standard industry fans may have up to 10% difference between their fan rotation cycles (RPM). With the new Fan IC Control on SAPPHIRE NITRO + graphics cards, this differential is reduced to 3%. This 70% improvement on accuracy ensures that cooling and noise performance of every NITRO + card is up to scratch.

Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB Radeon RX 580 Delivers:

• Smooth 1440p in the latest AAA games.

• DirectX® 12 and Vulkan™ support.

It is VERY close to the same though

​pretty much is. it's got an overclock that you could do yourself.

Also eats more power when gaming for marginal gains. Not a lot to like about this compared to the RX 480

The real question is why - unlike the Hawaii rebrand of R9-290 to R9-390 - didn't they increase the memory clocks?
Especially seeing how memory clocks on Polaris - again unlike with Hawaii its extra wide 512-bit memory bus - seem to make a fair bit of difference:

Okay, that's 6% more performance for an 12.5% increase in memory clock so not 1:1 but it uses a lot less power than trying to increase the core clock by a similar amount.

They could have used GDDR5X as well, wasted opportunity.

Nah, I don't think they care tbh. The 580 was, and is purely a naming and marketing exercise, nobody really know what they have up their sleeve for Vega it could be immense, and this could be a deliberate down play to catch the snoozing competition off guard.

What an / another utterly pointless release by AMD. Guess they blew their R&D budget on Ryzen.

mmmm

Yep disappointed with this refresh, went over to Nvidia instead for my 6 x cards

From what I have read, these barley keep up with stock clocked gtx 1060's (6gb)

These Prices are really inflated for a 1060 competitor, A couple of the cards are approaching GTX 1070 Pricing! Better off buying a RX 470 or 480 and overclocking it or a 6GB 1060 (avoid the 3GB model as your hit the VRAM limit on certain titles)

didn't they increase the memory clocks?

Becoz they cant , they're already stretching the power limits/heat limits and it allows the 6xx cards to have faster gddr5x or HBM2(less likely).
BUT hey the fans are more in sync than they have ever been before

This "deal" is hilarious considering gtx 1070 deal was 299 with 2 games

Increased clock speeds, unlocked compute units.

Still a good deal, but I can't see any reason to buy this if you already own an RX 470/480.

I just don't see who this card is aimed at and why would you buy it over a 470/480 1060 if you were looking to upgrade from an older card
its current draw is almost twice that of a 1060..for what?

The prices on pretty much all pc gear is cranked up for 2017 the cost to buy these components is ridiculous, this has to be the worst time to buy pc parts/systems and there talking about price increases lol, on the bright side the 2nd hard market is thriving and sure to do btr should prices keep going up, can't help feeling there cutting there own throat for short term gain in profit margins.
It's pretty much gonna be which every company puts on a great deal for a component gets all the sales just like that 1070 for £300, now that deal sold a lot of cards and made some money, when those offers come up they will be grabbed people need to be patient more so now than ever before, and we need people posting deals on this site.

As for me I'm not buying anything until these prices come back down to earth, no ryzen, intel, anything I'm sitting with 3 builds lol my old phenom II 555 (unlocked to 4 cores) with ddr 3 1680mhz (7-8-7-20) is still going strong, my z97 asus pro is harldy use and now runs a large 80+ tb nas and has been very under utilized simply because I bought a much smaller system in my z170i asus gaming pro, sm951 nvme, evga gtx 1060 sc (6gb).

I may not have went the kabby lake route but if these prices had been btr I would already be building a new ryzen system but the parts I want are just to overpriced and I wont settle for something else those b350 motherboards are also overpriced for what they are, so much for ryzen being cheaper turns out they just match intel tier for tier B vs H & X vs Z as such im under no doubt both intel and amd are loosing sales.
