Overview

Hardware:
 
Manufacturer: ,
 
Price at time of Review: $500+ if it's even in stock, but should drop down to around $250 if crypto-currency slows down again.
 

WHAT WE LIKED:

Great AAA Performance, Love the Aorus Aesthetic, Very good Build Quality, Extremely Good temp and noise levels
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

RX 580 doesn't overclock well, Lower performance in Overwatch than expected, Ridiculous pricing due to mining craze
 
BOTTOM LINE:
If you like to sit back in AAA titles and chew on story with your game play, the RX 580 is a perfect fit. If you're looking for the perfect Overwatch card, let's hope Radeon can do some improvements in drivers or future releases at the very least.

Introduction

It’s time to get back into the graphics foray and we have the perfect head-to-head match up to start it. While top-of-the-line cards are great to drool over, the vast majority of users are squarely in a budget realm when shopping for a GPU upgrade (more on that in the conclusion, however). AMD decided to focus more on this sector of buyers when they released Polaris, the GPU found in their flagship RX 400 and 500 series cards. Needless to say, we need to see how they measure up in gaming performance to see if Radeon is succeeding in this bracket.

We also have to point out another new thing that’s happened with Polaris. Gigabyte has been doing graphics cards for a while, but they recently switched a lot of their gaming components to their Aorus branding. It started with motherboards and Nvidia based GPUs, but now they’ve include the RX 500 series with the Aorus line as well. I’ve been a huge fan of the new designs under Aorus so let’s find out if their GPUs hold up just as well.

GIGABYTE shares the same passion for gaming as all gamers. Therefore we have extended the premium gaming brand – AORUS, the pinnacle of our hardware excellence, to provide a full spectrum of innovative gaming products that deliver the ultimate performance and exemplify PC’s capability of bringing gamers unprecedented delights. We continue to participate in global gaming events, connect with the community and actively listening to gamers’ desires in order to create marvelous products that are focused on gamers’ needs. AORUS is a team of gamers in the PC industry, looking to side with gamers on the gaming conquest, to challenge the limits, and become legendary.
