Lau Kin Lam, an overclocker you should remember from Radeon RX 480 and more recent Ryzen 5 leaks, has just finished his 3-hour long test of Radeon RX 580.
AMD Radeon RX 580
First of all, let’s talk a bit about his graphics card. The Radeon RX 580 he used has a waterblock. I’m not familiar with the specific model he used, but he told me this card is exclusive to China. Note, that this card is using reference board with one 8-pin power connector, which I believe may be important for overclocking.
AMD Radeon RX 580 GPUZ
Thanks to Lau, we have the very first Radeon RX 580 GPUZ screenshot using the latest version. It appears that GPUZ is showing all specs correctly and the only difference here from RX 480 is GPU revision and device ID, not to mention the clocks.
AMD Radeon RX 580 3DMark Fire Strike & TimeSpy
All tests were performed on RX 580 clocked at 1360 MHz. Shortly put, results are comparable to RX 480 with the same frequency.
AMD Radeon RX 580 Overclocking
Like I said earlier, this XFX RX 580 model has just one 8-pin power connector. He explained to me that there were issues with Radeon Software Wattman, so increasing power limit out of question. His card did run at 1500 MHz with increased voltage, but it was affected by power bug, which basically lowered the GPU clock and final result in the process. The most stable configuration was 1480/8500 MHz with +12 mV on GPU.
|Overclocking Settings||3DMark Time Spy Score|
|XFX Radeon RX 580 @ 1480/8500 (+12mV)||4664|
|XFX Radeon RX 580 @ 1500/8000 (+100mV)||4449|
|XFX Radeon RX 580 @ 1480/8000||4586|
|XFX Radeon RX 580 @ 1450/8000||4519|
|XFX Radeon RX 580 @ 1400/8000||4399|
|XFX Radeon RX 580 @ 1360/8000 (stock)||4311|
He also ran two games at very high settings, Rainbow Six Siege and The Division, both at 1080p:
The Division average 61.8 FPS
Rainbow Six Siege average 136.7 FPS
Here’s the actual video, please be aware it’s 3 hours long!
