In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC 2GB are marginally better than the AMD Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB.

The RX 560 has a 5 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the RX 560. This results in the RX 560 providing 0.3 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX 560 has a 5 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 560 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RX 560 providing 0.099999999999998 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC 2GB and the Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC 2GB and the Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC 2GB and the Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB are the same, which means the RX 560 and the RX 560 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC 2GB and the Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB have 1024 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the RX 560 has 0.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate and 0.099999999999998 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, but the has GB/sec greater memory bandwidth. Although the GPUs are very similar in performance, the RX 560 takes the edge.

The Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC 2GB requires 80 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 560 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 560. The RX 560 requires 5 Watts more than the RX 560 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the RX 560 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the RX 560.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC 2GB is an Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Polaris 21 which has 16 Compute Units activated and thus 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 16 ROPs. It has a small factory base overclock from 1175MHz to 1180MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, 7GHz effective.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 80W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no Extra Connectors are required.

Performance
This graphics card was designed and marketed towards the competitive MOBO gamers. A light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC 2GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 900p screen res and expect around 45+FPS

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. Higher resolutions will be an issue due to the limited 2GB of VRAM.. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
