Radeon RX 580 Strix OC 8192MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
The DirectCU III cooler design from ASUS keeps the copper heatpipes in direct contact with the GPU. The heat is transferred away from the GPU by means of aluminium-finned heatsinks, and the heat is exhausted using two fans. If the GPU is not under full load and requires less cooling, the fans decrease their speed or even switch off completely. This enables the quietest possible operation of the graphics card, and two 4-pin fan connectors are able to support up to two PWM case fans connected directly to the graphics card. This allows the rotational speed of the PWM case fans to be adjusted in accordance with the needs of the graphics card. Since it the graphics card generally produces more heat when gaming than the CPU, this affords the case superior airflow and cooling.

The AMD Radeon RX 580 in DetailThe Polaris graphics chips of the Radeon RX 500 series are manufactured using the new optimised 14 nm FinFET-LPP process, which allows the performance in comparison to the RX 400 series to be increased. With 2.304 Shader Units, the same number as that of the Radeon RX 480, the Radeon RX 580 still delivers almost 10 percent more computational power in comparison to its direct predecessor. The reason for this performance increase lies in the process optimisations that have enabled increased boost clock speeds.
The Polaris 20 chip used in the Radeon RX 580 is similar to the Polaris 10 with the exception of the boost clock speeds, and it profits from the 4th gen Graphics Core Next architecture (GCN 1.3). Some of the innovative features within the Polaris architecture include, among other things, a new command processor, a geometry processor, new multimedia cores, an optimised display engine as well as an improved memory controller. Other supported technologies include Async Computer, Vulkan, DirectX 12 and AMD's FreeSync technology.
The Radeon RX 500 series relies on the same control-, power saving- and clock-rate technologies used in the RX 400 series, correspondingly and due to process optimisations the RX 580 is capable of a markedly reduced TDP of just 150 Watts. Monitors can be connected to the graphics card through DisplayPort, HDMI or DVI-D, and EyeFinity technology allows up to four monitors to be connected in a multi-display setup. The HDMI 2.0b port carries 4K/UHD-resolution signals at 60 Hertz and provides HDCP 2.2 compatibility for sending and receiving encrypted signals (4K streaming, 4K Blu-Rays).
In order for the card to reach its maximum potential, new drivers should be downloaded and installed at regular intervals from the AMD or the manufacturer's websites.
