increasing the graphical settings like the textures , smoothness etc. The issue is , the gpu core needs to be powerfull enough to make it worth increasing those settings, otherwise the game will be unplayable. A 2080 for example, is powerful enough to drive maxed out settings in many games so it will make use of those 8GB much easier. A 570 on the other hand will never pull the same fps with the same settings so it should never need anywhere close to 8GB. So yes you could technically max it out by running a game in 4k with everythign maxed out but even though vram is fully utilized, you wont get playable fps. That's why theres a proportional increase in video memory with weaker cards having much less vram than stronger cards. A second point is crossfire where memory is shared which may justify the higher vram buffer but im not too familar with sli /CF as Ihavent run it in ages.

edit: aaannd a third point is that some games incorrectly report vram used. I wanna say the call of duty games report the maximum vram available as opposed to utilized... i dont remember where i heard this but if you run into a game that shows that its using all of your video memory , you may need to find out if thats really the case.

Tom's Hardware says the ASRock RX 580 is a good card but runs a little hot and noisy. One of the better no-rebate prices yet though.

I have a 580 paired with a top-of-the-line CPU from 10 years ago. Runs new games pretty well. Goes to show that your gaming computer money is best spent on GPU and not on CPU.

What will be a good example of maxing out 8GB on a 570?

What is your top of the line CPU from 10 years ago? I'm running dual Xeon x5680 on my workstation with a evga gtx 970 oc.... I'm getting around 80fps in dota2... will this card be much better?

No more games? Glad I jumped in before they shutdown the free games.

I only do mainly photo editing with Lightroom and Photoshop. Would the 4GB be enough? Any recommendation would be really appreciated!

Seems like a good price for a new card. Clocked decently high as well.

Got this exact same card and I don't know which other cards you're used to have, but this noise level is reasonable.

And yes best no rebate price. I got mine sadly 1 year ago at $250. Man... Could've waited

Not true if you're playing it 1080p The CPU will bottleneck the graphics card at that point at 100% usage. If you do a super resolution it'll eliminate that though 1440p or 4K. Example of 3770K paired with a RX 580 8 GB bottleneck horribly in battlefield 5 at 1080p. Turn the sample resolution to 150% takes care of it
