Default video card question

can't change platform right now, so on my fx8350 system would it be a stupid thing to do going from an 8Gb 390X to an RX 580?
most resources on the net qualify this a side-grade, to put it mildly.
opinions, experiences?

cheers

It is a side grade, or slight down grade to go from 390x to the 580, as the 390x pulls ahead in most games by a few fps, or at least that was the case a year ago. I know the 390x runs very hot and is power hungry, and i am not sure about the 580 as i didn't really care about those areas when i looked into it. So if the 580 is coolerr and draws less power, and that is important to you, then that would be the only good reason to switch

thanks.
yeah, power consumption and heat would probably be the only reason to switch cards as the 580 is more efficient in both respects, but since I'm not worried about those issues I'll hold it off for the time being.

Hardwood is still being judged by the masses

I'll have to mostly agree with the others.
I went from dead 290x to rx 580. 3dMark results are consistently about 10% higher with a significant drop in temp and power use.

I went from a 290x to a 570. In modern games the 570 performs as well if not a little better.
