AMD RX 580 price and availability

21 April 2017

The reason why this was even possible in the first place is because RX-580 is basically a rebrand of last year's RX-480. Not at all. In fact, it's likely that if you're really itching for the extra frame rate, without spending the dollar, you simply overclock your own 480 by the same amount to see similar gains. The impact of AMD's RX 500 series on the existing pricing stack is minor. It's a step up from integrated graphics and it will make a cost-effective buddy for ultracheap FreeSync-compatible monitors.

Just like a year ago, AMD is targeting dedicated gamers who are still running older GPUs, so it's placing a priority on affordability.

I think if you're going to take the opportunity to update your graphics subsystem, however, you should spend a little more to sufficiently futureproof it. This technology works using per game profiles so you'll need to check if the game you're thinking of is supported. Here's how our RX 480 (AMD reference) compared against the RX 580 in aggregate, across all games and in just DX12/Vulkan games.

While the 580 and 570 are inherently more interesting from a performance standpoint, the 560 and 550 have more to offer budget users. Instead they still fit into more of a "reasonable performance for a reasonable price" mold, offering less expensive alternatives to Nvidia's competing models.

Ryan covered the improvements over the previous Polaris based cards the RX 580 offers, a higher Rated Clock and standardizing memory frequency of all RX 580 models to 8GHz. You'll miss out on VR!

There are multiple different versions of both cards from Sapphire and this gives the users plenty of options.

The RX 580 is ultimately designed for those still stuck on Nvidia's 700 series GPUs, or AMD's 300 series graphics solutions.

Radeon ReLive may experience recording or streaming issues when task switching using ALT+TAB.

As it turns out come launch you should be able to find reference specd cards for anywhere between $230 and $240USD.

According to CNET, the new AMD products are available this week but not the RX 560, which will be available in early next month.

USA prices for each new card include $229 Dollars for the RX580 with 8GB of RAM, $199 for the RX580 for 4GB, $169 for the RX570 with 4GB and $99 for the RX560 with 2GB. Initial cards range from $200 to $275. RX 560 is equipped with a dual-fan design that delivers the sweet spot performance.

Next in line is the Radeon RX 570.

That wasnt meant to be since the only sample I received was a Sapphire RX 580 Nitro+ Limited Edition which will retail for $280USD.

Next up there is the RX 560, which has half the stream processors of the RX 570, 3 billion transistors, and only around 2 TFLOPs of performance.
