How well can the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB run games
12 Jan 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the more powerful mid range graphics cards, the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB might struggle sometimes with the more system demanding game 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 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB graphics card, when running 2020 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 graphics hardware can run 269 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Microsoft Flight Simulator and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 7 FPS, Medium: 5 FPS, High: 4 FPS and Ultra: 3 FPS. We proceeded to look at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to see how that compared and saw that it returned a playable 31 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB at 1440p and researched how Microsoft Flight Simulator might perform on it leading us to predict a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 5 FPS, Medium: 4 FPS, High: 3 FPS and Ultra: 2 FPS. We then checked out Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 62FPS, M: 49FPS, H: 33FPS, U: 24FPS. And another popular game was Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order that returned L: 5FPS, M: 4FPS, H: 3FPS, U: 2FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB we get the impression that it is going to underperform if you try and run modern games.

How many years will the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB then a good choice would be 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB as this is better than 882 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 85% better performance as well. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, as it can run 752 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 45% increased graphics performance.

I already got the money to buy this GPU, but I was reading that in some cases the GTX 1050 SC GAMING, 2GB (Well, almost every GTX 1050, it´s just an example), has more performance in some games, I´m going to buy a Ryzen 5 1400, so, ¿Which is a better option?, thanks.

Yeah you're right , that's what i'm thinking too , actually , it might be dumb but i'm hesitant to get an RX 560 or an R9 290 for now i've got 2 options , it might be uncomparable in terms of performance but in terms of price….it lets you think ?
