I bought a RX 580 8 GB OC edition from Asus in 2018 and I know that the RX 500 series released in 2017.
The question is when will my graphics card driver support end ? Because I don't want to replace it by an another one until 2024 or even 2025.
My PC (Desktop System) :
Yet again you are wrong, Windows 1809 is supported until November 2020.
zelda412 Nobody knows how long they will be supported, although the term "support" has a couple of different meanings. If you mean, "How long will the RX 580 continue to receive performance and feature updates", then quite likely not much longer, since if you look at the release notes mostly everything since the RX 5000 series was released is focused on them. Vega users experienced this as well despite having much more expensive cards. AMD is also set to release their first ray tracing capable cards later this year, so their resources are going to be heavily focused on those.
If you mean, "How long will the RX 580 continue to receive new driver packages", then likely for at least two more years. The HD 7000 series through the R300/Fury series will be the next batch to be moved to legacy support.
There is precedent, however, that cards not even out of warranty have been moved to legacy support, namely the HD 6000 series, because they were not DirectX 12 capable. A similar thing may be about to happen as DirectX is about to receive its largest update in years, DirectX 12 Ultimate, which will have features only supported by the next generation of cards coming later this year, RDNA2, but again if a card doesn't receive any updates, is it really supported?
Okay, I get it. Thank you for your responses.
Now I ask you an another question: If my RX 580 has definitely no more updates from AMD and switch to the legacy package driver, can I still use it for my current games and update my Windows 10 (major updates) or not at all ?
Legacy drivers do not contain the required DirectX, OpenGL and Vulkan driver API files. The answer to your question is no. If you fall into such a situation, your graphics card will already have bad performance for current games. You probably will not use it, anyway... If you will use it, you can try it with the old OS and an old display driver.
mstfbsrn980 I have doubts about this, but right now it's clear, thanks for your fast response.
Sadly, it means that I have to change the graphic cards when my RX 580 is done (lagecy mode by AMD) and if it happens so quick, then I have to act.
I realize now why this is the very bad point of a PC. Especially with Windows 10 since it's a OS As a Service, so when my RX 580 has no more support, I have no longer the possibility to update my PC.
RX 580 will have driver support for a long time. If AMD will support it, your GPU may even have ray tracing. ASUS RX 580 is a good GPU for 1080p entry level gameplay. However, your processor remains a bit high. Half of your processor will probably sleep in most games with it.
