Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 580 8GB Graphics Card Review

Acoustic, Thermal and Power Testing


Acoustic Performance

With a zero RPM fan mode, the card is completely silent in most scenarios. However, even when you’ve got the fans kicking in, the card is still very quiet, measuring just 42dBa.

Thermal Performance

The huge cooler design is doing a decent job, keeping the card from passing 70c. You could comfortably increase the RPM of the fan for better cooling performance though, as it’s pretty quiet with the stock settings.

Power Usage

Using an older chipset with a significant overclock is hurting the efficiency of the new AMD cards. It uses almost the same power at the GTX 1080 G1 Gaming! Of course, we won’t see improvements in the efficiency of AMD cards until we get a new chipset such as Vega.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
