GIGABYTE G1 Gaming Series graphics cards are crafted for perfection in pursuit of the ultimate graphics experience for gaming enthusiasts. Based on the revolutionary AMD® Radeon ™ GPU architecture, G1 gaming graphics card brings you incredible gaming experience.

WINDFORCE 2X Cooling System


The WINDFORCE 2X cooling system features 3 pure copper composite heat-pipes, heat-pipe direct touch GPU, 90mm unique blade fan design, 3D active fan with LED indicators, stylish metal back plate, together delivering an effective heat dissipation capacity for higher performance at lower temperatures.

WINDFORCE 2X Cooling System-Fans


90mm Unique Blade Fan Design

The airflow is spilt by the triangle fan edge, and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the air flow by 23% over traditional fans.


3D Active Fan with LED Indicators

The semi-passive fans will remain off when the GPU is under a set loading or temperature for low power gaming. The LED fan indicator on the top of the graphics card provides an instant display of the fan status.

WINDFORCE 2X Cooling System-Heat Pipes


Composite heat-pipes

The composite heat-pipes combines both thermal conductivity and phase transition for efficiently managing the transfer of heat between two solid interfaces which increases 29% of cooling capacity.


3 Heat-Pipes Direct Touch

The pure copper heat pipes are shaped to maximize the direct contact area to the GPU.

Cool, reliable, fast. 4/25/2019 4:44:27 PM

Pros: My first card to have a "Fan off" mode. If you're not gaming, the fan just doesn't turn on.

Aesthetics are nice, and not gaudy. RGB lighting on it is 'alright', and can be turned off. Set the color you like (or turn it off) and never mess with the 'Gigabyte gaming' software again. The software is fine, but not necessary once you set the color.

Mine overclocked like a champ. 1400 core, 2200 memory, 74c max temperature (after sitting in Superposition for a few hours). Fan was noticeable, but not screaming or anything. I left voltages at Auto. All of this done in Wattman, naturally. (Currently on 19.4.2, but the same testing was done about a year ago.) Almost forgot to mention, power limit was just cranked to 50%.

Fan at 100% (3600 RPM) sounds like a small vacuum. 50% is a soft hum. The default fan-curve worked fine for me. Under synthetic load, fan hit around 65%. Noticeable, but not annoying to me. I get idles at 33-35c, with the fan off.

Not exclusive to this card, but rather just a + from AMD, is Radeon Chill. Though it doesn't work in every game, I absolutely love this feature. It can be toggled with a keypress, which I often do. If I'm sitting at a menu, waiting for a match or something, I just tap my key and my GPU gets to cool down a little. PUBG in it's prime, was a perfect example of when I used this feature most.

Cons: Aside from a few rare crashes, which is bound to happen to everyone at some point (in my experience), the most frustrating thing about this card is the inaccurate readings from any software. In Wattman, or anything else, the "Activity" or "Usage" just spikes around from 0% to 100%. Sometimes it hits 70% or other seemingly random numbers. It claims 100%, then 0%, while in games.

Obviously this isn't a huge deal, but I'm a sucker for statistics. I want to know how hard my card is working on this game or that. I have no idea why it does this. I've tried several different driver versions, and even three different clean installs of Windows 10, at different times.

Again, I almost forgot something. The "Fan stop" LEDs on the GPU itself. It's annoying. I wish I could turn off those LEDs, but keep the "GIGABYTE" ones on. Sadly, that doesn't seem to be something I can do, while keeping the fan off.

Something not exclusive to this card, but rather Radeon Settings, is the "Game Explorer", which tries to read all the games you have. But it finds things that aren't games, such as Gigabyte's "EXTREME GAMING SOFTWARE" or whatever it's called. Just a minor nuisance.

Overall Review: With my OC, in Superposition's "High" benchmark, I score 6174 (2604 on Extreme).

I have an FX 8320 @stock, and 16GB 1600mhz RAM. Antec Eleven hundred V2 is my case, covered in generic Cooler Master fans.

This is why I like amd 1/8/2018 6:44:56 AM

Pros: Great bang for buck
Outperforms nvidia counterparts
Entry level 1440p card and runs anything 1080 no sweat
Ultra on even the most demanding titles

Cons: Can get pretty hot
Under load can be noisy
It’s a big card

Overall Review: I think if you want a console killer card this does it, and affordably. It bottlenecks easy if your cpu is weak anything fx 8350 is way too weak but that’s not saying much with the new ryzen so it’s a great card

Ignored the 500 series and jumped on this for $180. No regrets. 5/3/2017 10:14:41 PM

Pros: I'm very happy to have caught this on sale for $179.99 and (after overclocking) having been able to match if not exceed the performance of most 8-pin RX 580 models. Sure, an 8+6-pin model would have been dandy for achieving a 1400+ mhz clock speed, but those run at an unreasonable $260+ price tag and only give an 8% performance bump over this, at most.

Maximum stable overclock achieved was 1375MHz @ 1175mV; however, after 1355MHz, my average fps during benchmarking and gameplay became inconsistent, if not barely improved. Stock clock at state 7 (in wattman) is 1290 / 2000 @ 1150mV / 1000mV respectively, but I managed an overclock/undervolt of 1355 / 2025 @ 1137mV / 950mV. I also achieved a 1340MHz core clock on 1115mV. Your results may vary, but I hope this might give you a ballpark estimate of how much you can get away with.

Max RPM is 3700, but my peak RPM was 2800 to maintain 70c on the core and 78c on the VRM during stress testing. This is alright with me, as it only sounds like a leaf blower starting at around 3200 imo.

Cons: If it weren’t for how cheap I got this for, I’d dock an egg for the backplate not having ventilation holes. As for something nitpicky, I wish it were possible adjust the RGB lighting through Radeon Settings or some manual switch/dial on the card rather than download Gigabyte's extra piece of software. I haven't bothered testing it, but I'm afraid the utility might reset my wattman OC.

Overall Review: Keep in mind that (at the time of this review) this model’s BIOS is the same one advertised on the product support page for the GV-RX580GAMING-4GD. It's probably the same card, and you can achieve its boost clock with approximately the same frequency/power settings I stated above. If these are priced the same at any given moment, though, you should probably just get the 580, especially if you don't want to mess with wattman.

Gets the job done on a budget 4/26/2017 4:29:34 AM

Pros: -quite
-great 1080p card
-even has RGB

Cons: - Orange does not match a lot of builds.

Overall Review: I am currently using this in my living room. It does a great job at playing any game i threw at it at 60fps, and it is very quite, my case fans are louder than it is even while gaming. If your looking for a budget Card that will do 1080p and some 1440p this card will get the job done.

Overheats? 4/19/2017 7:16:05 PM

Pros: None

Cons: I can't figure out why this thing causes my machine to just shut down when it's under any kind of load except that it overheats. I thought maybe it was the PSU (650W) not being able to keep up with the extra load of the fans, but I've upgraded to 1000W PSU and it still crashes.

Overall Review: Don't buy it.

Very happy with this card. Installed effortlessly and has worked flawlessly. 12/27/2016 9:17:56 AM

Pros: -Runs all of my games on high or ultra with great frame rates.
-Temps stay reasonable. It has not been above 60 degrees at any time since installing it in my system.
-Looks great!

Cons: -The only con I have so far is that it requires and 8 pin power connector, which I did not have with my power supply. I was forced to order and adapter for it.

Piece of Junk 11/29/2016 5:37:11 PM

Pros: - It installed easily as any graphics card would and should.
- Looks really nice, has some nice exterior marker lighting that says "Gigabyte" and tells you whether or not the fan is running.

Cons: -Doesn't run anything DirectX related. Crashes to black screen after 5 minutes max.

Overall Review: I wouldn't recommend this on my worst enemy. I'm going to be RMA it back to Newegg for a replacement. I think I'll go back to NVidia and spend the extra hundred because quite frankly this is disgusting. My 6th computer build and it's the only one with and AMD card and issues RIGHT FROM THE START.
