10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon RX 560 Kuroutoshikou 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.

Lets look at the Radeon RX 560 Kuroutoshikou 4GB game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2023. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 238 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

Running at 1080p this card gets a weak frame rate from Forza Horizon 5 with 22 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Far Cry 6 which returns a weak 0 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Battlefield 2042 which we saw getting a weak 0 FPS.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Forza Horizon 5 to see how the Radeon RX 560 Kuroutoshikou 4GB dealt with it. It scored up a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 44 FPS, Medium: 35 FPS, High: 23 FPS and Ultra: 17 FPS. Next we looked at Far Cry 6 which was weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Battlefield 2042 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 0. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 560 Kuroutoshikou 4GB we get the impression that it is not the best choice to run modern games.
