AMD has launched its RX500 series dGPUs, we picked up Sapphire's highly overclocked custom variant RX 580, the RX 580 NITRO+ 8GB Limited Edition. In this series we will be investigating how much separates the two Sapphire cards, what kind of performance uplift can we expect from the increased clock speeds. First up is GTAV, the fan favorite open world game developed by Rockstar North.
With Very High quality preset and 1080p resolution the RX 580 is about 3% faster than its predecessor in the game's built-in benchmark. The extra clock speed of the RX 580 doesn't translate into much improved performance over San Andreas' open countryside. Stay tuned for more!
