How well can the Radeon RX 560 XFX Single Fan OC 4GB run games
AMD Radeon RX 560 XFX Single Fan OC 4GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon RX 560 XFX Single Fan OC 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.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2021 popular games. This short Radeon RX 560 XFX Single Fan OC 4GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. This graphics hardware can run 256 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

The Radeon RX 560 XFX Single Fan OC 4GB graphics card is returning a weak performance on Resident Evil 8 at 1080p of 0 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Forza Horizon 5 which we predict will get weak frame rates of 22 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Battlefield 2042, which is predicted to get 0 FPS under tests.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Resident Evil 8 to see how the Radeon RX 560 XFX Single Fan OC 4GB dealt with it. It scored up a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we looked at Forza Horizon 5 which we predict will be weak with a 17 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Battlefield 2042 that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 0. Running games at 1440p with a Radeon RX 560 XFX Single Fan OC 4GB is not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.

How many years will the Radeon RX 560 XFX Single Fan OC 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 560 XFX Single Fan OC 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 XFX Single Fan OC 4GB? A suitable upgrade choice for the Radeon RX 560 XFX Single Fan OC 4GB is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which is 44% more powerful and can run 625 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB which is 109% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 965 games from the most demanding games today.
