Meet the Cards: PowerColor & Sapphire

For today's launch, AMD sampled us a pair of partner cards: PowerColor's Red Devil Radeon RX 580 8GB, and Sapphire's Nitro+ RX 570. The Red Devil RX 580 sports a modest factory overclock, while the Nitro+ 570 takes comes with a more aggressive factory overclock.

    Ryan I think because you did the review and posted that makes you first post no matter what. Good review by the way thank you. Reply

    You do realize that this review has probably been done for at least a week, right? They were under NDA until this morning. Reply

    That doesn't mean a review was guaranteed. Anandtech, while putting out phenomenal reviews, occasionally delivered them later than launch day.

    This one was great too, by the way, thanks!

    Also, I should add that they've been way more timely lately, which is great. Reply

    It's amazing people will find any excuse to dismiss a launch day review... Reply
