The AMD Radeon RX 580 graphics thẻ was released in April 2017; it was the successor to their popular RX 480 graphics card. AMD did not vày much to the card except for boosting the bộ vi xử lý core clocks. The RX 580 only offered slightly better performance than the RX 480 graphics card, but it was over một nửa faster than the R9 series cards. In this review, I tested the MSI Radeon RX 580 Armor OC 8GB mã sản phẩm and tested eight games.

The thẻ is powered by a single 8-pin nguồn connector & draws just 150 watts TDP.


Specifications & Test System

So, those are the specifications of the MSI Radeon RX 580 Armor OC. What exactly did I chạy thử for this review? Well, as stated above, I tested eight total games, all triple A titles, at 1080p on the highest in-game settings for each game. All games were given a total of 10 runs & an average was taken for each in both minimum FPS và average FPS. Each game was tested over a span over several days and each run had a 15-minute break between them.

For the test system, I once again used my Intel chip core i7-7700K system. The system includes the Intel core i7-7700K clocked at 4.9GHz cooled by the Corsair H60 all-in-one liquid CPU cooler.

Gaming Benchmarks

First up in this benchmark session is the oldie but goldie, Grand Theft tự động hóa V. This game is known more for its use of CPUs more than GPUs, but it is still popular today several years after its release. In my round of testing, GTA V came away with a minimum FPS of 87 & an average frame rate of 105. The next game in testing was Witcher III: Wild Hunt. I did enable nVidia hair works for testing.

Conclusion & Final Thoughts

So, there you have it. The MSI Radeon RX 580 Armor OC 8GB graphics thẻ performs fairly well in modern triple A games but is nothing khổng lồ really write trang chủ about. An average of the average frame rates across the 8 games tested was 95 FPS, which is good, but for the current price of the card, it is terrible. The thẻ currently is selling on Newegg for over $600 & I purchased this one for $450 shipped khổng lồ my door. Averaging that out, you get around 1.7 frames per dollar compared to the MSRP average of 3.2 frames per dollar. If I were lớn put a price on this card, I would price it around $200 to lớn give you nearly four frames per dollar spent. This thẻ is nothing special as it’s very plain, has two fans, is black and white, & has no back plate. Would I recommend this card? Right now, no, I would not. However, if you can pick one up for $200 then, yes, go for it. All in all, I’m okay with this thẻ at the original MSRP of around $240 but I would not pay much more for this card.
