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.

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 FB

1060 6GB EVGA SC is only £215, I'd buy the 1060, save money and get better performance ...... RX 580 is disappointing so far

Really performance from what I have seen is the 580 being faster.
Only thing he'd get besides saving money is lower power consumption.

I also don't see how you could be disappointed with the 580? Like you knew it was a refreshed 480? What did you expect? 15% uplift in performance? A 480vs1060 was already pretty dang close. A 580 jumps ahead more often than not. Besides, they clock much higher, I haven't read a review that goes into depth about it though. Strange, I bet they all could hit 1500 without much effort.

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

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

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 well

Nice card. Seems like they've refined the last one so fair play. I think they've learned a bit from Sapphire.

Thanks for the review Tom

Looks like there are models with stock clocks of up to 1450MHz, shame nobody goes higher than 8000MHz on the memory,
