Asus AMD RX 580 (4GB) Hits $160 on Newegg

Now that AMD’s new Radeon RX 590 is official (and officially power-hungry), the prices of the now previous-gen RX 580 cards have started to drop, as we said would likely happen in our How to Tell a Graphics Card Deal from a Dud story. Those RX 580 price drops, as of this writing, seem to be significant, with some cards already selling for well under $200. Given that we now know (from our testing) that the newer RX 590 adds just a few percentage points of average performance over the RX 580 while using significantly more power, the RX 580 is looking more and more like a good buy this holiday season for those looking to game at 1080p.

Update (11/17): This deal has expired.


And right now, Newegg has by far the best deal on an RX 580, with the Asus RX 580 O4G Dual-fan OC Edition selling for just $159.99. According to PCPartPicker, that’s the lowest price this card has sold for by far, and much less than competing models, most of which are still selling for $200 and above. It’s possible we’ll see a slightly better deal on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but we doubt the RX 580 will drop significantly lower than this price in the coming weeks and months.

    Excellent GPU for the price, got mine last last week for $169 from Microcenter. Stays cool while gaming and is silent while idle due to the fans turning off.

    Newegg reviews have me hesitant to pull the trigger.

    Terrific value. The only question is, how well that 4GB of VRAM will hold up against cards that have 8Gb. Even some games as old as 3 years+ can easily breach the 4Gb usage mark when you crank things to the max.

    @BARRYV88 Probably reasonably well. I installed BO4 on my laptop today, and i was genuinely surprised to find i could run it with ultra textures (everything else medium or low, mostly medium) and achieve an almost stable 60fps. This is a mobile 1050 2GB we're talking about. My guess is 4GB will be enough for 1080p for a few years at least. By the time is isn't enough cards that only have 4GB will probably be obsolete or at least low end.

    An RX 580 is generally at a similar performance level to a GTX 1060 6GB. So a 1070 is going to be faster, probably by around 30-35% in most games bound by graphics card performance. Then again, we are comparing a card that's been selling for around $200 to one that's around $350, so obviously a performance difference should be expected. On a performance-per-dollar basis though, the 580 will offer more performance for the money, since the 1070 tends to cost nearly twice as much, unless you are buying a used one or something.
