Product information - Nitro+ Radeon RX 580 8G Special Edition, 8192 MB GDDR5The Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 580 8G Special Edition with a semi-passive Dual X cooler reaches a high base clock of 1.430 MHz. The 8 GB of GDDR5 VRAM is clocked at 4.200 MHz (8.400 MHz effective) and is connected to the GPU via the 256-Bit memory interface. An 8-Pin and 6-Pin power connector keeps the 26 cm long graphics card supplied with power and a power supply capable of delivering 500 Watts is recommended.
In order to cool the graphics card effectively, Sapphire utilises a cooler with two fans and an additional backplate. LED lighting is also included. The special feature of this is the semi-passive dual-fan cooler with removable fans and the blue anodized cooler shroud. Removing just one screw allows the fan to be removed for cleaning. In the rare instance of a problem with the fan it can then be sent in separately, without having to send in the whole graphics card.

The AMD Radeon RX 580 in DetailThe Polaris graphics chips of the Radeon RX 500 series are manufactured using the new optimised 14 nm FinFET-LPP process, which allows the performance in comparison to the RX 400 series to be increased. With 2.304 Shader Units, the same number as that of the Radeon RX 480, the Radeon RX 580 still delivers almost 10 percent more computational power in comparison to its direct predecessor. The reason for this performance increase lies in the process optimisations that have enabled increased boost clock speeds.
The Polaris 20 chip used in the Radeon RX 580 is similar to the Polaris 10 with the exception of the boost clock speeds, and it profits from the 4th gen Graphics Core Next architecture (GCN 1.3). Some of the innovative features within the Polaris architecture include, among other things, a new command processor, a geometry processor, new multimedia cores, an optimised display engine as well as an improved memory controller. Other supported technologies include Async Computer, Vulkan, DirectX 12 and AMD's FreeSync 2 technology.
The Radeon RX 500 series relies on the same control-, power saving- and clock-rate technologies used in the RX 400 series, correspondingly and due to process optimisations the RX 580 is capable of a markedly reduced TDP of just 185 Watts. Monitors can be connected via DisplayPort, HDMI or DVI-D to the graphics card and, thanks to EyeFinity technology, up to four monitors can be connected in a multi-display setup. The 2.0b HDMI outputs in 4K/UHD resolutions at 60 Hertz and HDCP 2.2 offers the ability to send an receive protected content (4K streming, 4K Blu-Rays), while the DP 1.4 port even supports 8K at 60 Hz.
In order for the card to reach its maximum potential, new drivers should be downloaded and installed at regular intervals from the AMD or Sapphire websites.
