MSI AMD RX 580 8gb Review in 2018 (the most pointless review possible)

581 ratings | 22652 views
If you could get a Radeon RX 580 8gb for a good price what could it manage to do in 2018? I think these might flood the market eventually and when they do will it be a good buy? I do some benchmarks and check out mining hash rate... because that's what ya do with a rx 580 :"( Consider Supporting Me On Patreon? https://www.patreon.com/timmyjoe Parts in this episode: RX 580 (ha) http://amzn.to/2CfL5Zy xfx version http://amzn.to/2nUf1X4 Nitro Version http://amzn.to/2H8N5GN Shopping on Amazon?

A very great time to make a video about a card which is basically a mythical card

I have that exact card, ordered it day one of release from newegg.ca at MSRP because I needed to upgrade from my Sapphire 7850 but I've been playing a lot of open world games and I wanted to use the CemU emulator for Zelda BotW and both of those just flat out work better on a GTX 1060 so, its a great card for the MSRP but I realize now a GTX 1060 would have served me better haha!

Timmy Joe PC Tech (13 days ago)
I purchased that same card from my friend for 240 CAD, he mined with it and 14 others for about 8 months at a loss and by the time he started selling them people wouldn't buy them for any more than $280 CAD when he originally paid close to $500!!!! I want another!

So.. I should have been able to buy one second hand for under £100... instead I have to buy a second hand GTX 970 for £195. Sort it out AMD and Nvidia. At least they actually release mining cards, that actually addresses the supply issue. They just have to up supply. Thing is there are about 10 manufacturers for each brand, why can't they meet demand? Are they limited by how many they're contracted to produce? If it was a free market, they'd just make more until supply met demand, 10 manufacturers is easily enough for a competitive market.. as long as they operate freely..
llJeezusll (7 months ago)
Just do some searching and youll find some decent GPUs. There's so many GTX 970s out there for $200-250 and its performance is close and in some games higher than an RX 480 8GB. A month ago I also found a person selling plenty of refurbished or used gtx 1060s and RX 580s for $280-350 Id say thats pretty decent. Also found 2 GTX 980tis for $500. Pretty much a GTX 1070.

When miners start to sell these cards dont buy. These cards where never made for running 24-7 at 100%. They are burned down and will brake wery fast. In fact all GPU's used for mining are burned to the ground. Just think about it for a second. These GPUs where running for months or years at 100% day and night under who knows what conditions. I wouldent touch them even if they cost 20$.

Snagged one at Microcenter in January for 300 bucks and it chews up and spits out all my Vulkan games, even at 4k it will run Doom at 55fps. Overwatch locks at 60fps on 4k as well

I need a help or opinion which is better the GTX 1060 6GB or the AMD RX 580 of 8 GB, which processor would have to buy me that is good and a source to satisfy these 2 more the components of the pc I have an AMD RX 460 4GB with an AMD FX 8320 3.2 GH Would it be worth changing?

Timmy Joe PC Tech I do not know much about video cards, so I ask you, would you recommend me the ryzen? I want to play all the games in high quality if possible and with good fps I'm going to buy a 144hz monitor so I say, you have one more subscriber of Argentina: D

I picked up a 350 dollar XFX RX 580 8GB Crimson, over 1400mhz core stock, goes up to about 1500 with the voltage upped but it gets warmer than I'd like to see when not undervolted, and memory has its timings strapped so only goes up to 2170 stable in games, and mining was the same all-the-way-up. Gets about 30.7MH/s in eth while dual mining with that. edit: Monero won't do well with it for some reason even with the strapped memory, only about 780H/s. my RX 480 gets 1050 H/s on monero with much lower OCs, and 29.7MH/s on eth. I have it and the 580 in a crossfire setup that's mining most of the time.
Jeff Smith (8 months ago)
DEFINITELY NOT UPGRADING. Gtx 1080 will have to keep me going for years now, unless we see better prices next year. And by that I mean cards like the 1080TI for 500, better cards for 700 ect

well GPU mining worked out for me my old 280x was basically worthless last year which made me decide not to sell, but then can along the miners buying all the cards and now I was able to sell it for way above what it is worth

I got my 480 to 1412mhz with fans at 100%. had to do that because for some reason it crashes at 62c at that speed.

Joe Bell (8 months ago)
It's sad . Minners may be what officially kills pc gaming . I honestly would be all for AMD and or Nvidia doing something hardware wise on the cards to disable minning and make a card that does mine but charge a crap ton more money for it . That would fix the issue . I have a couple R9 390X cards and I'm thinking of selling them for more then what I bought them for new . Lol that's sad but might as well make money off of these sorry minners while I can . The 390x is a bit better at minning to . Thanks minners for killing pc gaming . Hopefully all the minning shit will crash and burn soon . If you think about it the only thing Bitcoin is used for is Illigal purchases off the darknet such as drugs guns . It's hardly accepted anywhere on the clearnet . I use to be all for crypto currency ,but not anymore .

you gotta read and learn with crypto and mining,XMR mining with your cpu u have are good,your amd cards ETH/it alts,Zcash/it alts ,NV cards Zcash or just go download nice hash and let it go ,watch your temps and lower you clocks,tdp and oc the memory.NV cards on eth like the 1060's u can -200 core tdp 50%~ and oc your memory

I dont understand why spend USD 729 to buy RX 580 8G to mine crypto ? You can invest that sum of money directly by buying crypto in an exchange . The only reason I think is using credit card to buy RX580 as you know banks in US has banned credit card on buying crypto .

The bios hacks originally were to increase the performance for overclocking. Maybe an idea for a video is a comparison of a polaris gpu with and without memory straps.

im so glad i scored my XFX 8g rx480 in November of 2016 for just 239. if only i had bought a 16 g kit of ram at 3000mh instead of 2133mh would have made out like a complete bandit.
WhoWouldWantThisName (9 months ago)
The way you get one of these is by buying a prebuilt PC. I was going to build a rig, not for mining, back in November. Then the shit hit the fan and you couldn't get a card anywhere. So I ended up getting a Dell prebuilt with a Ryzen 1700 and an RX 580 8 GB, 16 GB system RAM, blah, blah, etc. for $899. I couldn't get an i5, R5, R3, hell even an i3 system for that cheap. I sure as hell couldn't build it for that, maybe twice that. Basically I got the whole thing for the price of the GPU and the CPU, maybe the mobo too, with everything else thrown in free. That includes Win 10 home 64 bit, keyboard and mouse, etc. I really wanted to build my own with hand picked parts but right now prebuilt is the only fiscally responsible way to go, IMO. Actually I'm still looking for a monitor to couple with this thing and I was shopping for a 144 hz 1080p, but after seeing these numbers I'm thinking maybe I should just get a 75 hz with higher resolution. I don't know how much this thing will ever utilize those higher refresh rates. Of course it could pay off if I eventually upgrade to a better card and/or CPU.

Bagdadsky_Hornik (9 months ago)
gpu mining = retailers paradise. But in regards to memory OC, i would recomend to watch HWinfo for memory errors on AMD cards... pretty annoying when mining.
Arno Kalliokorpi (9 months ago)
First of all, Monero is not very profitable at the moment, check sites like whattomine.com where you can see that many coins with same technology are much more profitable. Also you should run two threads with lower intensities on that card to get the best possible h/s, flashing is also super easy with one click bios modder and given that many of these cards have dual bios its practically no risk operation. Regarding clockspeeds you should set the core to around 1150-1200 and max out memory and then undervolt to get to hashrate/watt sweetspot

the msi gaming or gaming "X" series are the best 3rd party graphics cards available imho. nvidia or amd
England is my city (8 months ago)
halistine jenkins i don't like the aorus either, looks and feels cheap imo. asus strix is overpriced in my opinion, they don't offer the best cooler and the rgb isn't all that impressive. i've used gaming x cards in the past, my current one is a 1080ti gaming x trio. it's got the best cooler on the market (it's fucking huge) and i love the red lighting, which fits perfectly in my theme. also, it looks absolutely gorgeous, especially when mounted vertically. the only thing i hate about msi is their software, they have 1000 different programs and the lighting profiles don't always apply automatically without some software running.

My Gaming X 1080ti was my favorite style until I got a strix 1070ti. Both are really good.

PhilsComputerLab I was lucky...bought mine on December 2016. My RX 480 8 GB was $290 in my country which is not bad at all. I could not sell it since it was not enough to get a 1070. Selling it on eBay was also not an option as the shipping to send it to the US would be around $65. So I am still rocking my RX 480 8 GB...
