RX 570 vs RX 580 with i7-7700K vs i7-7700K at 1080p and ultra vs ultra settings

AMD Radeon RX 570 / i7-7700K

At 1440p, RX 570 can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is clear that the RX 570 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for RX 570 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. With current 4096 MB RAM, the RX 570 can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.

AMD Radeon RX 580 / i7-7700K

At 1440p, RX 580 can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is clear that the RX 580 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for RX 580 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. In terms of memory, the RX 580 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks.

Why are RX 570/580 sold out and when will they be back in stock?

They are more sold out because people are using them for mining than because of their gaming performance.

Agree, 580. Unless your into modding games with lots of textures the extra 4gb on the 570 is pointless, its more marketing than a useful feature.

I am planning to buy a gpu Rx570gb. If I overclock RX570 then will I get performance near to Rx580.

Not a chance. There's a lot more to the cards than just processor and memory clocks. The 570 has less cores, less compute units, smaller cooling ability, lower clocks on memory and processor, same pcie buss, but smaller bandwidth. You could jack the speeds through the roof, but at the end of the day, the 580 simply has more horsepower.

Does anyone have any information on the subject. This mining madness is driving me crazy. I'd like to get Sapphire Radeon RX 570 NITRO+ 4GB, but 570/580 have vanished from all stores worldwide.

Which one would you buy:
RX580 8GB - 0
RX570 8GB - 0
RX570 4GB - 0
GTX 1060 6GB - 6

UPDATE:
RX 580 4GB - 0 I am liking the AMD cards more, so I think this RX 580 4GB is best for me.
