How well can the Radeon RX 560 4GB run games
AMD Radeon RX 560 4GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon RX 560 4GB is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

This PC hardware performance game review for the Radeon RX 560 4GB graphics card, when running 2021 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 259 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

Running at 1080p this card gets a playable frame rate from Days Gone with 31 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Resident Evil 8 which returns a weak 0 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Far Cry 6 which we predict will get a weak 0 FPS.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon RX 560 4GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Days Gone where it was weak. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 62 FPS, Medium: 49 FPS, High: 33 FPS and Ultra: 24 FPS. We added Resident Evil 8 to our tests and saw it was weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Far Cry 6 leading us to predict 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. 1440p gaming on the Radeon RX 560 4GB is not a viable PC gaming choice.

How many years will the Radeon RX 560 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 560 4GB in your PC? This Radeon RX 560 4GB card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 560 4GB? A good choice when looking to upgrade the Radeon RX 560 4GB would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which meets 634 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 45% better performance. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the Radeon RX 560 4GB then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300 as this is better than 312 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 20% better performance as well.
