Once again, the RX 580 outpunches the RX 480 by such a slim margin that your eye could never actually see the difference. And once again, the EVGA 6GB GTX 1060 and Sapphire RX 580 Nitro+ trade blows depending on the graphics preset and resolution tested.

At a Glance
  • The Radeon RX 580 is basically the Radeon RX 480 with a new name, but that still makes it the best mainstream graphics card around. Sapphire's custom Nitro+ design is stellar.

    Pros

    • Great 1080p, good 1440p, and solid VR gameplay
    • Compelling price to performance
    • Sapphire's Nitro+ customizations look and work great

    Cons

    • Lags far behind GTX 1060 in power efficiency
    • Basically a rebrand of the RX 480 with slightly higher clock speeds
