AMD Radeon RX 560 2GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon RX 560 2GB 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 2GB 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. The Radeon RX 560 2GB can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 245 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon RX 560 2GB can run Grand Theft Auto VI at 1080p and predict it will return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Back 4 Blood returns a weak 19 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon RX 560 2GB at 1440p and researched how Grand Theft Auto VI might perform on it leading us to predict a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked out Back 4 Blood which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 37FPS, M: 29FPS, H: 20FPS, U: 14FPS. And another popular game was Days Gone that returned L: 57FPS, M: 45FPS, H: 30FPS, U: 22FPS at 1440p. 1440p gaming on the Radeon RX 560 2GB is not a viable PC gaming choice.

How many years will the Radeon RX 560 2GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 560 2GB in your PC? This Radeon RX 560 2GB 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 2GB?

Radeon RX 560 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.

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 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 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.
