At 4:13 you said and wrote "Total War Sage" on the graph when it should've been "Total War Saga".

Have you guys tested to see if and AMD card performs better when paired with an AMD CPU vs Intel? To add to that, also the same for an Nvidia card.
Spencer Reynolds (1 year ago)
Doesn't matter if they are related, they're both very competitive so that might make the rivalry more heated rather than less

After finding out the CEOs of both companies are related it doesn't really matter which company you prefer.

Is the Radeon RX 580 the Radeon Pro 580x (in the iMac) also which is faster

As someone who needs to replace a GPU now but will at some point have to replace the motherboard/CPU/memory in the future (those are old as well but the GPU is the one showing its age) i was wondering, above and beyond the benchmark issue, are there still incompatibility issues when you, say, pair a Radeon GPU with an Intel CPU/board?

Yes, an actual Arma benchmark it seems like no one ever does them and that's my main game. Though I'll have to see how my combo works since the game is CPU heavy.

looks like you should, you ge basacally the same performance, for almost 50% less money, while the 1060 is around 300 pluss tax, around 360 $ US, the 580 is close to 280 includding tax, 1 frame less , one frame more, but you save close to 90 dollars withe the 580, I did get mine yesterday, and is worth every penny. In my opinion you shoud get the 580 not just becouse the price, but also for performance.

generic benchmarks oh it's gotta be true... LMAO.. this is a joke... I have the RX580 8gb Red Devil card and in the REAL WORLD it runs circles around my 1070..in most games as I am running 3 -24" monitors @ 5760x1080 intel i7 7700k 64gbs ram.. 1200watt PSU... even more so in VR.. here is some FYI if you are too young to remember and this is still going on to this day... So i've been reading up on some of the shinanigans that nvidia has done on "nvidia - the way its meant to be played" games. I can't believe the lengths nvidia has gone through to purposely hijack games to run worse on AMD hardware. I won't go into long details, but nvidia paid crytek US 2 million to delay their DX11 port, and nvidia implemented it *themselves* by applying tesselation on non visible, water, and flat objects. If you read up on this, these tactics were purposely done to hijack crysis 2 on anything that isn't nvidia hardware -- and it does not improve image quality AT ALL (on flat objects and water...and especially non visibile objects under the world -- yes they did that.) Outright scumbaggery. They did the same with Batman: AA in 2009. This is the same company that in 2003 manipulated their drivers to disable features in 3d benchmarks to get inflated results - back then tomshardware called them out on it, and they admitted to cheating. and now to see that their cheating hasn't ended. well I know back then they both did it.. as far as tweeking for benchmarks... but to purposely do this to people with AMD video is just well sad...

@Zsavage1 brill. will do. i only run 1 24" monitor and vr isnt on my bucketlist yet but thats worth knowing. thanks again!
Zsavage1 (2 months ago)
@D-no no problem... I dono if you use multiple monitors or not but in my past experience with SLI or CF.. AMD has always been ahead when it comes to multi-monitor setups.. I run 3 24" monitors and a VR headset (windows Mixed Reality) and I don't set them up in eyefinity so I can use each monitor independently.. and AMD setup so you can run different resolutions on each one if you so chose.. can't do that on SLI :) once you go 3.. you'll never go back to a single monitor again....lol I build all my computers.. I have at least 4 running in the house all the time.. my personal system runs 24/7 I took a 770 out of my daughter's system because it just couldn't keep up with our gaming demands.. put in a 75 dollar used RX480 8gb card and it runs everything we throw at it .. oh and before you go 580.. check the prices of the RX590's if your budget allows.. well worth the little extra https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131742&Description=RX590&cm_re=RX590-_-14-131-742-_-Product

@Zsavage1 dude... thank you for your input. i value opinions like yours where you have 1st hand knowledge. too many blaggers on YT nowadays so when i spot a decent comment like what you made where you have the time to input knowledge rather than blag i take notice. i will go rx now after this chat. thank you again bro 💪👌
Zsavage1 (2 months ago)
@D-no I run 2 RX 580's now in CF, just a single 580 ripped up my 1070 and with just about a 20% overclock was right with the 1080. about 10 to 30 FPS but for the price if 200 bucks is worth about 10 more FPS well then it's your call.....you can find many comparisons on youtube.. right now a 1080ti cost about 800 to 1100 bucks or you can get a refurbished one for around 700.00 where as you can get 2 RX590's around 450.00 USD... but more important is that not all games now take advantage of crossfire.. and some times it has even been known to reduce performance.. so it greatly depends on which games you play plenty of info out there on games that support Crossfire... I sold all my nvidia crap.. was tired of driver problems and so on .. and nvidia's latest fukup.. they put some shitty ram on their 10xx series cards.. MICRON.. it it was horrible.. FPS drops, artifacts, BSOD's and they never said anything about it ... they would send you a refurbished card if you send your NEW cards in because of the ram problems.. someone had to call them out on it for them to admit the problem... and one thing I do is support the underdog because if it wasn't for AMD cards, you'd be paying 1000 dollars for a GTX550.. :)

this comment is what ive been looking for dude. i had an rx480 before and since then ive gone to a 980ti which was great but ive had to downgrade to a 970 for the time being as i overshot my budget. do you honestly think the 580 in the real world really punches that hard? im drawn to your comment as you dont seem to be guessing like most on here?

I would recommend you Sapphire nitro because of it's best cooling fans and what I like is that Rx 580 is similar to gtx 1070 but it's a lot cheaper than gtx 1060

The RX 580. If Newegg is an option there's even a promotion on there where you get 2 free games when you buy one.

So for 150$ for either of em is a good buy then
This Is My Name (6 months ago)
$150 for either is a steal. Around that price is how much an RX 570 or GTX 1050Ti costs.

Juan22 (6 months ago)
Please, RX 580 8gb or GTX 1060 6gb?. I currently have a new 500w PSU and I use a fresync monitor. RX 580 is about $40 cheaper than MSI gaming X GTX 1060 6gb here in my country. I've read that RX 580 is quite power hungry, and I want to know if I'll be ok with that PSU (it's that evga 500w 80plus one). I'd appreciate any suggestion.
This Is My Name (6 months ago)
Get the RX 580. I have a 450W PSU and I have no issues with it drawing too much power. Freesync is a huge advantage and the $40 saved is a nice bonus. The extra 2GB of VRAM is also pretty nice. As long as you have a decent power supply, the bill increase for the higher power usage will be minimal. Although I will warn you, it sounds like a jet engine when it's under full load. It gets ridiculously loud but it's just a minor inconvenience since either speakers or headphones will keep you from really hearing it.
DarkPhychic (6 months ago)
The RX580 is really power hungry... The power draw of Rx580 under full load is 200 Watts and gives out more heat while on GTX 1060 6GB is only 120W...So in terms of power consumption the Gtx1060 has an 66% difference if you want to save also on power bills...depending upon the area you live.--- Link :- https://www.pcper.com/reviews/Graphics-Cards/Radeon-RX-580-8GB-Review-Polaris-Populism/Detailed-Power-Consumption-Testing

Just bought GTX 1060 6 GB MSI Gaming X for $230, is that a good deal?
This Is My Name (6 months ago)
Pretty decent price. I would have personally gone for the RX 580 but $230 is about the MSRP for either.
GTX 1060 = 192 bits ... RX 580 = 256 bits ... any questions?..
Tony Tran (6 months ago)
The GTX1060 6GB is the better choice due to the following reasons: +More Cheaper +Runs Much Cooler. +Much Less Power Consumption. +Better Drivers For It. +Easier To Find Online. +Not AMD Chinese lol. +G-Sync Monitor's. +More Popular Nvidia Duh.
This Is My Name (6 months ago)
They're actually both about the same price, the power usage isn't that bad and I have no issues using my 580 on my low-end 450W PSU, the drivers for both are fine, it's pretty easy to find an RX 580 online anywhere you look, if you don't think your Nvidia card is manufactured in China you're sorely mistaken, Freesync is just as good as GSync and Freesync monitors are much cheaper, and popularity isn't a selling point. Basically it boils down to whether you'd have better specs in exchange for a louder video card. Which is a pretty easy decision to make.
Deano (6 months ago)
Let's make this simple: RX 580 for more VRAM, better performance in DX12 games, AMD finewine tech which ages the card well compared to Nvidia, freesync so you don't have to be a dumb price for G Sync, and better performance in AMD optimised games such as Far Cry 5, Rainbow Six Siege, Battlefield 5 GTX 1060 for lower temperature, lower power consumption, better performance in Nvidia optimised games such as AC Odyssey, GTA V, Fortnits etc

Fuck, rx 580 abd 1060 are the same price here.. what should i get?
daniel is muy gay (6 months ago)
what did he overclock the core clock of the rx580 to?
Kyle B (6 months ago)
Technically you throw out that one odd massive outlier, from a game I've never heard of, and I'm pretty sure the 580 is ahead slightly still. Buy whatever's cheaper but don't forget the 3gb 1060 isn't the same core as a 6gb 1060. I've also seen RX 570 and 560 for unbeatable prices, we usually forget about those cards for the tight budget buyers. 1050 ti is just way over priced unless you're very limited on power supply and can't or don't want to upgrade it.

Question, I can as a late Xmas Gift either: Intel Core i7-9700k --------- (I pay £804 - £924 for rest) AMD Ryzen 7 2700x + RX 580 -- (I pay £554 for rest) Which do I get?
This Is My Name (6 months ago)
I'd get a Ryzen 5 2600 and combo it with a VEGA 56, instead of a 7 paired with a 580 if your main priority for your PC is gaming. The 7 isn't that much better despite the extra $150 unless you're planning on mostly video editing, heavy multitasking, rendering, etc. In fact, the extra cores on the 7 means that in gaming that the 5 will actually achieve better results sometimes since games aren't typically optimized for the high amount of cores the 2700X has.
im pretty dumb, but (6 months ago)

"Back and forth" Tbh, expect the Unreal Engine game, the RX 580 was always faster than the 1080 + AMD priced the 580 very aggressively so i have even seen prices about 150bucks. Much cheaper and a bit faster, the winner is clear.

Word to the wise and serious Premier Pro CC productivity users out there who use gaming cards in their rigs. Premier has a SERIOUS unresolved issue with TR4 (Thread Ripper) + NVIDIA combos when scrubbing timelines (serious stuttering). It's been known for years by Adobe (and still unresolved!) but not as often talked about since there are simply far less TR4 users vs. other AMD sockets out there and subsequently less forums out there about the issue. I found out the hard way after a lifetime of research/troubleshooting and 6k in lol. So as to not duplicate the hairloss, pass the word on! @Hardware Unboxed, great work as always! <3

Hey unbox theory I was wondering if you can help me with a problem. I have a gtx 1060 6gb with ryzen 5 1400 and made this build back in feb 2018. Today, I decided to do a driver update with the geforce experience, and I did a custom installation with box check to clean installation. However, all of sudden I been getting massive FPS drop to around 100-70fps in the game rainbow six siege. Before I used to get 144-120 fps on average. What did I wrong? Thanks

RX580 is the performance king of the mid range cards. It has 2 more gigabytes VRAM, it takes advantage of DX12 and it overclocks easily to 1450 with mild fan speed. I wouldn't call the 580 future proof but as we move forward to more games taking advantage of DX12 and Vulcan, the choice seems abundantly clear. Choose the card that best supports the games you're interested in.

I will always root for amd honestly. Even after all of these years of them falling beind intel and nvidea, we are starting to see some real come up, at least on the cpu side of things. Backing the underdog encourages competition, and competition brings innovation, and i think its been a while since we've seen some real huge changes in the market, especially in the low/mid range market.

Yu Guan (9 months ago)
The best aged GPU in my opinion is GTX970 and 980, it is older and still somewhere between 1050ti and 1060 6GB in performance. 980ti is ok cool, it should be quite near to 1070.
