New card is GDDR6 rather than the GDDR5 in the RX580's

i'm going to get rid of the Nvidia GTX680. My question here is
should i pull one of the RX580's from  my main machine   intel i5 8600K 3.6 GHZ
16GB RAM and replace it with the new card and move the RX580 over to
machine number 2, intel i5 4570 3.20 GHZ 4GB Ram. Or should i put
the new card in machine number 2 ?   Or will it make any difference at all
which box i put it in ?

Hmmm I don't think it will make much difference imo.
If it were me though, I'd put the newest card with the newest CPU (which is also faster)  :thumbsup:
