  1. 4 out of 5

    I can not complain at all, excellent video card. It is silent and stays at about 70 °C despite being in operation for several hours. I have used it to work with Adobe CS6 and some games under Windows 10 Pro x64.

    Ambient temperature 27 °c
    CPU temperature 51 °c – 55 ° c (Ryzen 7 1700 @ 3.2Ghz Game Boost active)

    – Fornite @ 77fps / Epic / 68 ° c average
    – Assassin’s Creed: Origins @ 73fps / High / 66 °c average
    – A.V.A Closed Beta @ 136fps / Max / 67 ° c average
    – GTA V @ 62fps / Very High / 71 °c average
    – SWTOR @ 111fps / Max Quality / 65 °c average

    It all depends on the health of your operating system, open applications, how clean the computer is and the configuration of AMD Radeon Settings basically

    with the right CPU and 16 gig of at least 2400 ram you can run almost any brand new Triple A title on Ultra!!! It’s also much easier to find, and cheaper to buy the monitors that go with AMD “freesync” I believe is it’s name, than to try and find a nice monitor with G-Sync, and I’m a sucker for a 35″ ultra wide!! I can’t even play on a normal 16:9 anymore

    This may not be a popular opinion… and I don’t know if it’s the type of games I play or what, but I get comparable game benchmarks using a rx580 8gig paired with a RYZEN 17x or 18X, as I do with 8th gen I7 with a GTX 1070 (founders edition). The latter usually comes out a little ahead but not by a noticeable amount, and it darn well BETTER come out ahead! those components are almost twice the price. I do get more screen tearing on the harder games with the nVidia even if the FPS is a little higher due to all my monitors being AMD friendly. Personally id rather have average’s in the 50-60 FPS with NO screen tearing, than 60-80 FPS with noticeable tearing

    The fan works perfectly to keep this card cool. Idle temp was 30 C 85 F and fan was off. Would turn on and gradually increase speed to keep card cool. I wouldn’t recommend it for 4K as it gets into the high 70s C 170 F. That is still within reasonable temperature for the card, but I personally would like to have my computer a long time. At 1080 everything looks great still and no components get above 60 C 140 F. Cost versus power I would say this is one of the best cards for it’s price.

    Previously I was using a low-end Nvidia card, and upgrading a pre-built PC. My photography workflow required me to upgrade my GPU. As a Linux user, I went for an AMD GPU, as it has support in the kernel. All 3 monitors are running beautifully, I also have the Pro drivers installed for Opencl support in Darktable and GIMP. They are running faster and smoother. Even with the Pro Drivers FPS is good in the light gaming that also happens in this machine. This GPU was a great price and has had great performance.

    The great price and AMD promotion for 2 free games drew me to this card, as well as the good reputation of MSI products. Just wondering, did anyone receive their code for their games yet? I haven’t yet and am wondering about it (want to get Resident Evil 2 which releases in late January).

    Wow, what can I say but wow, amazing upgrade to my now 6 year old custom build PC. Spent less than $200 (after pending rebate) for a major increase in graphics performance (coming from a GTX 670 which was a top performer in its class when I bought it years ago lol). Very nice looking and sturdy gpu that runs more quiet than any of my older cards. Bought it mainly so that I could run my new LG Ultrawide 3440 x 1440 monitor with no worries (working magically so far!), and then discovered the amazingness that is 21:9 gaming! I’ve seen a few videos on it but never really intended that for this card, but just wow, the higher level of immersion that I am experiencing at 3440 x 1440 is just incredible, and this card runs at that resolution for Final Fantasy XV (demo) with no issues, and I feel looks a lot better than I remember it when I played the game on PS4 ^_^. My large and mostly unplayed library of Steam games are old and pretty much NO game will even tax this card, thus downloading the Final Fantasy XV demo. Will probably update this review as well as my LG Ultrawide monitor review as the months go by~

    This is the first time I’ve bought a discrete GPU. Before this purchase, I’ve used APU’s like the A10-7850k, or Macs with soldered graphics processors.

    I’ve been using it for GPU compute with Adobe products and light gaming. It’s actually a good 4K gaming card as long as you’re not looking to run the newest games.

    I’m very happy with the card. This is my first experience with MSI, I hope it proves to be a good decision.

    Great GPU for Great Price
    I purchased the MSI RX 580 (Armor 8gb) card and have nothing but great things to say so far.

    The packaging is nice and minimal but keeps the card nice and safe. I’m convinced I could kick the box and not phase the card.

    It has nice little handouts that explain how to install; which is extremely easy but was helpful none-the-less. The GPU came with a driver installation CD, I don’t have a CD drive in my PC (I haven’t seen a CD in ages!) but it’s helpful for those with poor or no internet. Driver installation was a breeze.

    As far as performance, it has given me great increases in all games.

    I haven’t tested features for streaming or VR, but I can say that this card will bring you into the modern gaming era without issue.

    Side Note: The card is pretty big, be sure to double check the dimensions of it and your PC case to ensure a good fit.

    COOLING::: I built my first PC with this card, it has performed great so far! If you are worried about temperatures, they are not great, but not had either. The fan runs no higher than around 40% under a decent load for me, and is fairly quiet. When the card is idle, the temperature is around 54°C and under load gets to a maximum of around 77°C.(measured using msi afterburner.) If you want to lower the temps, you can always increase fan speed, at the cost of a bit of noise(it gets loud when the fans are anywhere over 45%) and will easily keep it in the 60°c-65°c under load.

    GAMING::: it’s great, you should easily stay above 60 fps in modern AAA games no problem, turning the settings down will let you get 144 fps and up(what I use with my 144hz monitor)

    I recommend this card if you are on a budget, want to play new AAA titles, and are okay with some noise under heavy loads.
