PowerColor RX580 Red Devil Review

Up Close

We have the famous PowerColor Red Devil version of the RX580 on test today. PowerColor, and their Devil range in particular, have been part of the Radeon range since time immemorial and we're delighted that PowerColor remain committed to AMD graphics, especially given how good all their previous Devil products have been.

Much like the RX480 before it the compact dimensions are probably the first thing you noticed about the RX580 Red Devil, particularly if you've been used to some of the lengthy nVidia offerings. It's perfect for those of you with compact cases. The card itself is very attractive in its red and black colour scheme and the all metal shroud lends an air of quality to proceedings that the more common plastic ones just cannot match. Heck, PowerColor have even supplied a backplate with the Red Devil, complete with pentagram symbology. The idea of a pentagram as an occult image associated with Satanism is a very recent interpretation of this ancient symbol, and so even the devout amongst you can purchase this without fear of upsetting your chosen deity. 

Power inputs are two 6pin PCIe types, in keeping with the slightly enhanced power draw possibilities that the RX 580 has when compared to the RX 480 that preceded it, whilst at the business end three DisplayPort, an HDMI and a DVI cater for all your connectivity needs. It's a good looking card as we think you'll agree.

What's the likely price? Mid-£200's I'm thinking - the 1060 Strix that it fairly-closely matches is around £290-300 and the 480's are about £230-260 or so, expect it to fill that range I guess.Quote

Added this in with my Ryzen system it would of taken the price to around the £650 mark which in fairness is a really nice price range for a proper gaming system, though that red needs to be white

Probably why I kept seeing Asus post with specials for 480's on FBQuote

Nice review, I have a mates customer who was told to hold off and not get an RX480 by me and just as well as the RX580 is going to be much better for him and he will be gaming at 1080 so this will give him all the bells and whistles Quote

Not bad. Saw a couple of 580's hit 1500Mhz, but most were slightly below.Quote

Genuinely glad that AMD have allowed the AIBs to put their coolers on the cards from the start and not forcing them to use reference designs initially. They should do the same for Vega as wellQuote
