Compared to all the RX 580 cards, this one performs the best out of the box. The ASUS ROG Radeon RX 580 STRIX 8GB can play all the newest games at high settings with very decent frames per second. Rise of the Tomb Raider, when played in 1440p runs at 55 fps. Gears of War 4 in 1080p runs at 88 fps. From older games, GTA V runs choosing maximum details on a 1080p screen with an average fps of 90. This card will give you a smooth gaming experience with both older and newer games. See More
Comparing the cards performance to the ASUS RX 480 STRIX OC 8 GB, there's just a small improvement. If you have an RX 480 card in your box, the upgrade is not worth it. Though, if you happen to be running something older, the ASUS ROG Radeon RX 580 STRIX 8GB is a great card to upgrade to. See More

Cards come with Dual bios. The mining Bios makes 30.15MH/s on Claymore 11.6 with OC core 1150 mem 2175. This is out the box, without flashing BIOS, which means the mining BIOS 'flashed' from XFX factory is still configured to better mem timings for memory optimized coins, but being factory, it must be designed to protect the GPU from pushing it over the limit.For example if you want to mine ZEC, you can switch to the gaming BIOS, and with the best OC settings on either BIOS, the gaming BIOS gives a boost from 300MH/s to 320-330MH/s, so for some coins you can still benefit the other BIOS just with a simple CK switch. The cards are running stable on undervolt 800, core 1150, and mem 2175Mhz. Mining dual like ETH and XVG/DCR you can use the same settings but with undervolt at 810:) This decrease the power usage with a lot, and still keeps the highest MH/s you could achieve anyway, without undervolt, even a bit higher maybe:) See More
The Gigabyte AORUS Radeon RX 580 Gaming's core clock is 80-90 MHz lower than it's brother's, the Gigabyte AORUS Radeon RX 580 XTR 8GB version's core clock. Therefore it performs slightly worse out of the box. You can overclock the card yourself to boost the performance. See More
The Gigabyte AORUS Radeon RX 580 XTR scored 12,236 in the 3D Mark Fire Strike test. The rest of the setup had a bit lower performance than the other RX 580 cards in this list did. With equal setups, the card would score even higher. This RX 580 card can run very demanding games out of the box. Tomb Raider runs at 52 FPS with ultra high settings and 3840x2160 resolution. Thief runs at 35 FPS with the same settings. See More
