AMD Radeon RX 580 And RX 570 Mainstream GPU Reviews: High Performance Polaris
In preparation for the impending launch of AMD's next-generation Vega GPU architecture, which will eventually reside at the top of the company's graphics product stack, AMD is refreshing its mainstream graphics card line-up with some more-powerful Polaris-based offerings. In time, the new Radeon RX 580, RX 570, RX 560, and RX 550 cards launching today will supplant all of the current-generation Radeon RX 400-series cards, though these new cards are not radically different from their predecessors. Their clocks, shader counts, and memory configurations have been tweaked, but they’re still based on the same Polaris architecture and offer similar feature sets.

We’ve got the two premium cards in the lineup on hand for testing: the Radeon RX 580 and Radeon RX 570. In particular, we have the MSI Radeon RX 580 and RX 570 Gaming X in-house, both of which are customized and factory overclocked...

AMDs Radeon RX 580 and Radeon RX 570 graphics cards reviewed
Just under a year has passed since AMD released its Radeon RX 400-series graphics cards, and now the company is back with an improved 14-nm process at its disposal and a new series of Polaris GPUs fabricated on the new tech. We put a couple Radeon RX 500-series cards to the test to see what a clock bump buys the Polaris architecture.

MSI Sapphire and ASUS Radeon RX 570 and 580 reviews
We review the ASUS Radeon RX 580 STRIX with 8GB graphics memory. This is the TOP OC edition that comes with maximum clocks. This three fan cooled mainstream graphics card series will allow you to play your games in both the Full HD 1080P range as well as gaming in WQHD (2560x1440) range. As always ASUS ROG has a few strix tricks up their sleeves. And all that at a rather reasonable price of roughly 269 USD. This review is all about Polaris 20, a code-name indicative of the mainstream Radeon RX 580 series, The new GPU is basically the same as the Radeon RX 480, it however is fabbed with a 3rd generation 14nm process which is a little more refined. That results into a GPU that can be clocked and boosted a notch faster. As such yes, AMD is refreshing their lineup. Actually four new models are released:

AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB and 8GB
AMD Radeon RX 570 4GB and 8GB
AMD Radeon RX 560 2GB/4GB
AMD Radeon RX 550 2GB

Phanteks Eclipse P400 Tempered Glass Edition Case Review
The range of custom computer cases has been growing over the past several years with the inception of tempered glass side panels and coinciding nicely with the absence of the external drive bay. This new generation of case designs has really changed how people view a computer chassis and even caused several companies to struggle with “what to do” with all the extra space.

In this review we will be looking at the Phanteks Eclipse P400 Tempered Glass Edition. This is a Mid-Tower case that is virtually identical to the original with the same great style and design now with a tempered glass side panel. Inside the case features a conservative layout that can be customized to match your needs. If that wasn’t enough the case also features a new RGB lighting control with 10 different colors or can be controlled by motherboards supporting ASUS Auroa or MSI Mystic Light. The LED color control is also transferable to Phanteks LED lighting strips which can add more style and versatility to your builds.

PowerColor Radeon Red Devil RX 580 8GB Golden Sample Review
Cooling performance is going to be something you do not need to worry about with this new addition to the Red Devil family. A massive five heat pipe cooler easily handles the thermal load from the all-digital VRM, Ellesmere core, and 8GB of GDDR5 memory without missing a beat. Compared to last year's cooling solution, this beast of a cooler has it beat hands down. It is more compact, leading to a smaller overall footprint of the RX 580 8GB Golden Sample. By using a pair of 100mm ball bearing fans, the airflow is available to push through the heat sink without a lot of noise generated. In a less graphically intense game, the fans may not even spool up, thanks to the overall efficiency of the heat sink package. Smaller, quieter, and more efficient was the right choice by PowerColor.

Samsung Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8 Plus Review: Android Excellence, Superior Performance, Striking Design
We've been fortunate enough to have spent a little over a week with both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, specifically T-Mobile variants. Frankly, that's not nearly enough time to properly evaluate such a complex, full-featured pair of cutting-edge devices, but alas this is the peril of high tech launches and the relentless pace of innovation.

So, we decided we're going to do what we do best here at HotHardware, and that's to give you our assessment of performance (from a number of metrics) and the experiential view of these new products. We'll skip the flowery product lifestyle showcasing and slick video pans and fades, and dive right into the meat of how these two jet-black beauties we have in house measure up in the current smartphone landscape.

Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 8GB Review
AMD launches its latest RX 500 series graphics cards today, refreshing its Polaris lineup for the sub-$300 USD market. On our review bench is the Nitro+ RX 580 from Sapphire featuring a 1450MHz boost clock out of the box, 2304 stream processors, and 8GB GDDR5 memory. While the RX 500 series won't deliver earth shattering performance or mind blowing innovations, it will still serve the very legit purpose of offering a new upgrade option for users on budget still rocking 2+ year-old graphics cards.

Sapphire Nitro+ RX580 8GB LE
2017 has been crazy and we are only a few months in really with multiple big launches from AMD. They launched their RX 400 series of cards last June and the excitement and hype has hardly slowed down in AMD groups. Now that Ryzen 7 and 5 are both out and with rumors of Vega starting to pick up AMD decided to slip in the 500 Series launch. This might be one of the worst kept secrets with cards being sold worldwide for the past week or two but today is the day we finally dive into it all officially. For the launch, AMD sent over the latest Sapphire Nitro+ RX580 in an 8GB Limited Edition version. So today I’m going to run through what the 500 Series is all about and then I’m going to test the Sapphire card and see how it compares. For even more fun I dug out the RX480 Nitro+ that dominated our RX480 charts to see how the new card compares to its year older brother.

Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ Limited Edition Review
Polaris given a new lease of life in the run-up to Vega. What to do in the lull between the Radeon RX 400-series cards and launch of RX Vega? You could do nothing, put your feet up, and wait for the Vega-powered GPUs to proliferate from the premium space to the mainstream. Such an approach would take time. On the other hand, you could take another look at the incumbent RX 400-series, find ways to make it better, and then release said GPUs under the RX 500-series banner.

AMD is doing just that in the run-up to Vega, and the first two GPUs to get the numerical model makeover are the RX 580 and RX 470 GPUs, so let's take a look at what's new and what's not.

Sapphire RX 580 Nitro+ Limited Edition 8GB Review
While AMD's Ryzen has disrupted Intel's long-running hegemony in the CPU market, AMD has been relatively subdued in the GPU market of late resulting in Nvidia's continuing dominance of market share, particularly at the mid-range and beyond. AMD has today taken steps to change this with two "new " GPUs for its RX 500 series, the RX 570 and RX 580, hoping to attract new customers in the mid-range market.
