Most Critical Review

Great card. One of the best RX 580s.

Pros: - The card runs cooler (thick heatsink) and bit more powerful then most other RX 580s. - It's binned chip, so there is chance that you can get a really good overclock-able Golden Edition GPU. - Looks great in a red/black build. - Game bundles (AMD is killing it on their game bundles). I got 3 games free (including Odyssey) and I paid $240 before rebates.

Cons: - Golden Edition has higher power draw because its OC to higher frequencies out of the box. - It can occasionally run hot if you do not have good case fan set up. - Rebate for $20 never came in. Tracking on Power color shows rebate was approved, but never sent. Very disappointed. Trying to get hold of Rebate folks, but there is no reply. Taking 2 eggs of the rating for this.

Overall Review: It's a good 1080P card for all modern games, and if you tinker with settings, you can play many of those games on high on 1440P. I was able to get 100FPS on Black Ops 4. I could play Forza 7 on 4K at 60FPS on High settings.

Great looking, but the specs are a bit lacking.

Pros: - Looks very well designed. - Keyboard is really good - Screen is also very good quality. - Full Windows 10 Pro support

Cons: - Older CPU - Pricy accessories - Slower when it comes to running some apps and even older games. - Touchpad is not as good as apple. - Alcantara Keyboard will collect gunk and it hard to clean. - Lack of USB-C and 3.1 support. - Aluminum frame can scratch easily.

Overall Review: Looks amazing, but not that functional. Slower as the hardware will age fast.

Not fully compatible with Asrock motherboards

Pros: - Cheapest RGB white color DDR4 - 3000 MHz

Cons: Let's be honest. You want this ram for RGB lights and that's where it fails. The lights are not syncing correctly. RGB lights look weird even after installing T-force RGB software. My whole build is RGB based and now I will have to return these rams just because of the sync issues. I updated mobo and it didn't change anything.

Best sub $200 RX 580

I got 2 games free (including DMC5 & RE2) and I paid $200 before rebates.

Cons: - It can occasionally run hot if you do not have good case fan set up. - Rebate for $20 never came in. Tracking on Power color shows rebate was approved, but never sent. Very disappointed. Trying to get hold of Rebate folks, but there is no reply. Taking 2 eggs of the rating for this.
