RX 5500 XT 4GB vs RX 580 vs RX 480 at 1080p performance

AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT 4GB / i7-8700K

At 1440p, RX 5500 XT 4GB 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 5500 XT 4GB 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 5500 XT 4GB against the competition in budget mid-range cards. With current 4096 MB RAM, the RX 5500 XT 4GB 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.
