Introduction

 

GIGABYTE has released quite a few Radeon RX 500 series graphics cards, in both GIGABYTE and AORUS branding - but the package we received today found us with the AORUS RX 570 4GB, and the faster RX 580 8GB AORUS. As I've already reviewed SAPPHIRE's oh-so-meh RX 580 Nitro+ I thought that GIGABYTE could impress me with a cheaper mid-range card.

Before we dive into the card itself, the flagship RX 500 series card is the GIGABYTE RX 580 8GB AORUS XTR - which arrives as a ridiculous 3-slot graphics card. Personally, I think mid-range cards need to justify their unnecessary bulky coolers, and the RX 580 8GB AORUS breaks those rules. So I decided on looking at what felt like a better fit for its price, and the market - with the GIGABYTE RX 570 4GB AORUS, a dual-slot graphics card that will handle gaming at 1080p 60FPS without a problem.

 

 

The big difference between the XTR and normal AORUS versions of GIGABYTE's refreshed Radeon RX 500 series is that the XTR card features the massive WINDFORCE 2X cooling system that keeps Polaris 20 XTX cooler with its 2 x 100mm fans, and four composite copper heat pipes that are connected directly to the GPU. GIGABYTE goes a step further with its WINDFORCE 2X cooling system as it has an advanced copper back plate that we'll be testing out on the AORUS RX 570 4GB.
