How well can the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon V3 4GB run games
AMD Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon V3 4GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon V3 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.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2021. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon V3 4GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. 256 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Resident Evil 8 getting 0 FPS with the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon V3 4GB, Forza Horizon 5 predicted to get 22 FPS and Far Cry 6 getting 0 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon V3 4GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Resident Evil 8 where it was weak. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We added Forza Horizon 5 to our research and predict it will be weak with a 17 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Far Cry 6 which got 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon V3 4GB, this is going to struggle at this higher gaming resolution.

How many years will the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon V3 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon V3 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 PowerColor Red Dragon V3 4GB? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 45% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 625 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 110% better and can run 965 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.
