Our Verdict: Upgrading from GTX TITAN BLACK to RX 580 is not recommended as it is less than 30% of improvement in performance. In general, a reasonable upgrade is between 30% and 50% or more to justify the purchase of new hardware. The price/performance ratio is much better for RX 580 .

AMD Radeon RX 580

AMD ’s xx80 cards have always been defined by mid-range prices with performance that knocks on the door of high-end graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the GCN 4.0 graphics card inside the RX 580, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend. The RX 580 is much more cheaper than the RX 480 as it costs $ 229. Compare this to the RX 480, which came originally at a price of $ 400. Meanwhile, the NVIDIA closest equivalent card is the GTX 1060 6GB which costs $ 254.

Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the RX 580 consistently delivers frame rate increases over the RX 480, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade. For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Final Fantasy XV, Apex Legends, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, F1 2019, Forza Horizon 4 at 62 fps to 68 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 65 fps.

For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Fallout 76, World War Z, Battlefield V at 64 fps to 70 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 66 fps.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN BLACK

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Apex Legends, F1 2019, World War Z, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Resident Evil 2 at 63 fps to 79 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 70 fps.

RX 580 vs GTX TITAN BLACK with i7-7700K vs i7-4770K at 1080p and ultra vs ultra settings

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.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN BLACK / i7-4770K

In terms of cost, pricing clearly is a genuine issue here and the price of GTX TITAN BLACK is simply ridiculous. At 1440p, GTX TITAN BLACK can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is worth noting that the GTX TITAN BLACK is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the GTX TITAN BLACK 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. This combination between GTX TITAN BLACK and Intel Core i7-4770K @ 3.50GHz has less than 8% bottleneck in many games and is perfect match to avoid FPS loss. This combination between GTX TITAN BLACK and Intel Core i7-4770K @ 3.50GHz is a perfect match to avoid FPS loss.
