I always try to keep the test method the same for all cards. The ambient temperature while testing was 21°C or 70°F. The STRIX RX 580 has a base clock of 1360 in Gaming Mode. However, in GPU Tweak, you can set the card to OC Mode, with a base clock of 1380. I ran all benchmarks in Gaming Mode, at stock clocks. The one exception was 3DMARK which was ran at both stock speeds and overclocked. I ran the benchmarks in Gaming Mode to give an idea how the card would perform out of the box.

For the synthetic benchmarks, I tested Open GL, DirectX 11 and 12. For the Gaming benchmarks, the games were run in 1920 x 1080p. 2560 x 1440p and 3440 x 1440p. Unfortunately, I still haven’t replaced my 4k monitor. I used Radeon’s Crimson 17.1.1 WHQL driver. For the operating system, we use Windows 10 Professional due to it being the most recent operating system. All games were run on the highest possible settings. The GPU was set to its stock clocks. However, it was set to Gaming mode in GPU Tweak.
