10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse Mining 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 Sapphire Pulse Mining 4GB game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2021. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 253.

The Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse Mining 4GB graphics card is returning a weak performance on Back 4 Blood at 1080p of 21 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is FIFA 22 which we saw got good frame rates of 67 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Dying Light 2, which is predicted to get 0 FPS under tests.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse Mining 4GB by playing Back 4 Blood which yielded a weak performance.

This graphics card delivered 51 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Dying Light 2 which is predicted to get weak results with a 0FPS on Ultra 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse Mining 4GB, this is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.

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

Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse Mining 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse Mining 4GB is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Polaris 21 which has 16 Compute Units activated and thus 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 16 ROPs. This is a low power version of the RX 560 with a Boost downclock to 1216MHz from 1275MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, 7GHz effective.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 80W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no Extra Connectors are required.

Performance
This graphics card was designed and marketed towards cryptocurrency miners, only featuring a single DVI output. This means it can only be used with single monitor displays. Nevertheless, it is a light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse Mining 4GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 900p screen res and expect around 45+FPS

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 560 Sapphire Pulse Mining 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. Higher resolutions will be an issue due to the limited 4GB of VRAM.. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
