The Aorus RX 580 XTR 8G is the highest performing graphics card in Gigabyte’s RX 580 line-up. It’s designed to deliver VR capability, increased level of performance, smooth VR, seamless support for next-gen gaming monitors, and CPU-free game streaming or recording. Furthermore, the model also supports AMD’s newest technologies such as Direct 12 and Vulkan, FreeSync, and Liquid VR.
Aorus RX 580 XTR 8G utilizes 8GB of GDDR5 memory with 2304 stream processors and 36 compute units. It ships with 1439MHz core clock speed, and has 2000MHz memory clock speed which is connected to a high speed 256-bit memory interface. The 6+2 multi-phases board design enhances the power efficiency and stability over the reference design. Dual alternate spinning 100mm fans and four direct touch pure copper composite heat-pipes deliver a heat dissipation capacity of triple fan cooler in a much shorter design.

As far as this GPU goes, the XTR version of the this Auros GPU is premium through-and-through, and has all the bells and whistles Gigabyte is capable of including at this time. That includes a massive cooler that makes the card look and feel more like a high-powered flagship GPU instead of merely a midrange offering. For example, it measures 10.8 inches, making it the same length generally as a GPU like the GTX 1080 Ti, or the RX 390 in AMD parlance.
The reason it's so big, of course, is because it has an absolutely gigantic cooling mechanism that is named Windforce 2x. It's a cooling sandwich that attaches on both sides of the GPU, with a copper contact block underneath the GPU that's attached to a metal backplate, and a huge heatsink/fan array on top. The dual 100mm fans spin in opposite directions for reduced turbulence, and each fan has a small triangle on its leading edge to split the air and guide it through channels on top of the fan for better airflow. The fans are also "active" in that they don't spin at all when the GPU is not under load, and a handy "Fan Stop" indicator lights up to let you know they are indeed not spinning since you can't see them when looking at the card from above.
- AMD LiquidVR Ready
- Experience the immersive world of VR gaming and entertainment. With Polaris architecture and AMD LiquidVR technology, this GPU is compatible with the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive.
- HDR Ready
- This card is compatible with HDR (High Dynamic Range) content. When paired with an HDR capable display, you'll be able to experience enhanced contrast and colors for a sharp, vibrant visual experience.
- FreeSync Technology
- Reduce screen tearing with AMD's FreeSync Technology. FreeSync enables the monitor to dynamically adjust its refresh rate to the frame rate being output by the graphics card, thereby greatly reducing screen tearing, stuttering, and other artifacts.
- With support for up to 4 monitors, AMD Eyefinity allows you to customize how your displays are shown on your desktop. Having multiple displays can not only make you more productivity, but can also provide an immersive gaming experience. If you're looking to stream online via Twitch, having a separate display for the twitch chat as well as the capture window for both your gameplay and webcam can facilitate the process.
- Is one graphics card not enough? AMD's CrossFire works with compatible motherboards and allows you to install and combine up to two of the same GPUs to split the processing load and render graphics with improved frame rates and image quality for supported applications.
