How well can the Radeon RX 560 HIS iCooler OC 2GB run games
AMD Radeon RX 560 HIS iCooler OC 2GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon RX 560 HIS iCooler OC 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 HIS iCooler OC 2GB graphics card, when running 2022 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. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 239 games in the list.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon RX 560 HIS iCooler OC 2GB can run Battlefield 2042 at 1080p and saw it 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 20 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the Radeon RX 560 HIS iCooler OC 2GB performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Battlefield 2042 and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked the performance on Back 4 Blood to see if that runs well. It was weak with a 15 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon RX 560 HIS iCooler OC 2GB is not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.

How many years will the Radeon RX 560 HIS iCooler OC 2GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 560 HIS iCooler OC 2GB 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 HIS iCooler OC 2GB? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 49% better and can meet 616 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the Radeon RX 560 HIS iCooler OC 2GB would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300 which meets 309 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 23% better performance.
