Pros: Fast and works well.

Very Cool Card Very Cool Color

XFX GTR-S Black Edition Radeon RX 580 DirectX 12 RX-580A8DBW6 8GB OC+ 1450 MHz White LED Fans and XFX Backplate 256-Bit DDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: The color system is very cool looking(Wished it was green to go with my green build theme). Fast card and looks and works well.

Cons: It doesn't have green fan led. It runs hot and makes my whole computer hot. It is big and needs a lot of power hook ups unlike RX480.

Overall Review: Geen Led Fan would be nice white along with the blue led power lights with the red from my sound card in green case makes it look like and xmas tree lol. I really cant see much change from my 4gb XFX RS RX480 to my new 8gb XFX GTR-S Black RX580. I am sure there maybe one

Very Nice Card

XFX Radeon RS RX 480 DirectX 12 RX-480P4LFB6 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card
XFX Radeon RS RX 480 DirectX 12 RX-480P4LFB6 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: First off this card is big. But the graphics are very nice for the limited testing I have done with it in BF1.

Cons: There are some issues main one is the software. Like others have said Wattman is one of the biggest issues you will get. So that being said don't install any drivers that come with the card go to ATI and get the latest ones they can fix most issues you will have. Power is another issue 500w is said to be acceptable but I have found that 650+ is better and allows for the card to run smoother.

Overall Review: I have bought one of these cards for my self as apart of a new computer build I am doing. But the testing and issues I have found came from a client who needed me to upgrade there computer. The issues he had was wattman and power supply. I uninstalled the drivers and did a latest drivers install and bf1 would pull full system reboot. So we added a 850w power supply to the system and went from there problem solved. Normal BF1 game play on 500w as about 5m before crash after power supply tested for 25m and problem solved. I can see 500w for power if you have bare bones system that has no fans or anything running using power but if you have that you will need bigger power supply. Also graphics where very nice in BF1. If you can afford to get this card go for it. I plan to keep watch on this and try to get second card when on sale.
