RX 580 - higher priced models worth it?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, planning to buy a RX 580 8 GB. The lowest priced one (230$) currently on newegg is MSI Armor 8G OC (1366 MHz Boost clock, 8000MHz memory clock)
Comparing it to one of the higher-end models(270$) MSI Gaming X+ 8G (1441 MHz boost clock, 8100 MHz memory)

How much performance improvement can I approximately expect for this 40$ price difference?

Also if anyone is using the MSI Armor edition card, how much does it overclock? If both cards end up overclocking up to same clock speed then I won't mind buying the Armor edition card as I'm used to GPU overclocking.

Nobody can't tell you for sure how much a board will OC, each sample may be different from the other.
You can expect that one should be able to do 1366 and the other 1441mhz, or you may fell entitled to RMA (if you think it's worth it).

Then you may get some more rolleyes.gif
How much is not predictable, If I was to shoot I'd say 1403 for the first and 1512 for the gaming.

If your thing is OC then the G+ is worth it: better dissipation and douple power in, if you just wanna play video games I'd rather throw that money in a keypad or some controller than have 1 more FPS.

AFAIC I have a g+ coming this week I hope thumb.gif

Thanks for the feedback. Actually I'm bringing this card through my friend who is visiting USA (I don't live there), so any kind of RMA even warranty claim is out of question. That's the main reason I'm skeptical about bringing a graphics card from a abroad, as it is more prone to create problem compared to say, processor.

And regarding OC limit I'm curious how you've come up with such specific numbers(1403 & 1512), but I haven't found any review yet where 580 crossed 1500 MHz. The most I saw was 1480 MHz with Nitro+ limited edition.

And congrats on ur upcoming card!

As said I just made those up out of my head! biggrin.gif
Nobody can tell you how much a specific board would OC, we could make up a statistic (that would be a good use for a forum) but still there could be a sensible difference from a good sample and a "bad" one. It's not unheard of boards that could not reach the prospected "default OC". Then there's your PSU, your case ventilation...

The good news is that if your going to play games with it won't make much difference.

Thanks I'm crossing my fingers for availability, it's supposed to ship in 48hours. It's still hard to get these 500 board in Europe, 2 times my order has been changed for the lack of boards.

Yeah. Now that the rumor is the Vega might be available in market from June 5, I might halt buying the card until then to see if the RX 500 series cards go down in price. I doubt it would slump too much given the 500 series is itself new.
