Hello everyone, Will here. Today I am bringing you my Reviews of the MSI Radeon RX 580 Armor OC 8GB Model graphics thẻ. This graphics card is AMD’s offering that was their top over card for a while but only competed with the nVidia GTX 1060 graphics thẻ. For this article, I bring you a quichồng Đánh Giá và some benchmarks as well as my thoughts on whether you should purchase this card or not. So, without more delay, let’s get to lớn this.


The AMD Radeon RX 580 graphics thẻ was released in April 2017; it was the successor lớn their popular RX 480 graphics thẻ. AMD did not vị much khổng lồ the thẻ except for boosting the core clocks. The RX 580 only offered slightly better performance than the RX 480 graphics thẻ, but it was over 50% faster than the R9 series cards. In this review, I tested the MSI Radeon RX 580 Armor OC 8GB model và tested eight games.

Specifications và Test System

So, those are the specifications of the MSI Radeon RX 580 Armor OC. What exactly did I test for this review? Well, as stated above sầu, I tested eight total games, all triple A titles, at 1080p on the highest in-game settings for each game. All games were given a total of 10 runs và an average was taken for each in both minimum FPS and average FPS. Each game was tested over a span over several days và each run had a 15-minute break between them.

Gaming Benchmarks

First up in this benchmark session is the oldie but goldie, Grvà Theft Aulớn V. This game is known more for its use of CPUs more than GPUs, but it is still popular today several years after its release. In my round of testing, GTA V came away with a minimum FPS of 87 and an average frame rate of 105. The next game in testing was Witcher III: Wild Hunt. I did enable nVidia hair works for testing. The game ran okay, running a minimum FPS of 44 FPS & 49 FPS on average. Next, I tested Rise of the Tomb Raider, which pushed 47 FPS minimum and 65 FPS on average. Far Cry Primal came next with a minimum FPS of 54 and an average FPS of 65. Overwatch achieved a minimum of 78 FPS và an average of 96 FPS. Doom pulled a minimum of 161 FPS và an average of 192 FPS. Battlefield 1 was up next và pushed a minimum of 82 FPS & an average of 91 FPS. Finally, rounding out testing was Destiny 2. The game achieved 77 FPS minimum and an average of 100 FPS.

Conclusion and Final Thoughts

So, there you have sầu it. The MSI Radeon RX 580 Armor OC 8GB graphics card performs fairly well in modern triple A games but is nothing to really write home page about. An average of the average frame rates across the 8 games tested was 95 FPS, which is good, but for the current price of the thẻ, it is terrible. The card currently is selling on Newegg for over $600 và I purchased this one for $450 shipped khổng lồ my door. Averaging that out, you get around 1.7 frames per dollar compared to the MSRP average of 3.2 frames per dollar. If I were khổng lồ put a price on this thẻ, I would price it around $200 lớn give sầu you nearly four frames per dollar spent. This thẻ is nothing special as it’s very plain, has two fans, is black and Trắng, & has no baông xã plate. Would I recommend this card? Right now, no, I would not. However, if you can pichồng one up for $200 then, yes, go for it. All in all, I’m okay with this card at the original MSRP of around $240 but I would not pay much more for this thẻ.
