How well can the Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse 4GB run games
AMD Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse 4GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse 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.

How well will the Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse 4GB run 2022 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics 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 247 games in the list.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse 4GB shows us that FIFA 22 is getting a good result of 67 FPS, and then we are seeing Star Citizen predicted to return a playable 35 FPS while another game on our list is the Grand Theft Auto VI which is predicted to get 0 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Star Citizen to predict how the Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse 4GB would deal with it. Our research revealed a playable series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 70 FPS, Medium: 56 FPS, High: 37 FPS and Ultra: 27 FPS. Next we looked at Grand Theft Auto VI which we predict will be weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at FIFA 22 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 51. Running games at 1440p with a Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse 4GB is a perfectly suitable selection of hardware for theis larger screen size. If a game at 1440p struggles a bit or experiences a frame drop then you can tweak settings in game to help get it stable. This might mean lowering it to medium or low in some specific options.

How many years will the Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse 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 Sapphire Pulse 4GB? A great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 47% better performance and can run 616 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse 4GB would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300 which meets 309 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 22% better performance.
