A user on a Chinese video sharing site, Bilibili has launched the AMD Radeon RX 580 2048SP by XFX from a reference to Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 3GB in a variety of synthetic and real world game benchmarks. This video shows AMD's offer is superior, but not all, tests.
AMD created controversy when marketing the Radeon RX 570 8GB as the Radeon RX 580 2048SP in China. If you haven't followed it, the Radeon RX 580 2048SP is basically the Radeon RX 570 8GB in lamb clothing. The only major difference is that changes in the Chinese brand come with an increase of 40MHz. Sapphire is one of the first AMD graphics card manufacturers to release a special model RX 580 2048SP, and now it seems that XFX wants to join in having fun.
The results shown in the video must be taken with a little salt because Bilibili users do not provide information about the system or testing environment. From what we can say, they use a reference model from Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB for comparison. Based on the results, a game test might be done at 1920x1080 resolution.
The benchmark 3DMark reveals diverse results. The XFX Radeon RX 580 8G 2048SP Black Wolf rose to 10.79 percent and 3.52 percent faster than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB reference in the Fire Strike test and Extreme Fire Strikes, respectively. However, the XFX model is slower than Nvidia's 2.91 percent offer in the Time Spy test.
The XFX Radeon RX 580 8G 2048SP Black Wolf dominates the reference Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB in the game. The XFX iteration of the RX 580 2048SP was done 6.59-17.78 percent better when it succeeded the best GeForce card. However, GeForce brought home the crown in Hardline Battlefield and Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
