10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon RX 560 Yeston Gaea 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.

What FPS performance can the Radeon RX 560 Yeston Gaea 4GB get on latest AAA 2021 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. 256 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

A Radeon RX 560 Yeston Gaea 4GB card at 1080p is seeing a weak frame rate when running Resident Evil 8 on Ultra - 0 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Dying Light 2 which is 1 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Back 4 Blood performs on this hardware, which gets a weak 22 FPS.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the Radeon RX 560 Yeston Gaea 4GB ran Resident Evil 8 to a weak performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Another game researched was Dying Light 2 with predictions of L: 2FPS, M: 2FPS, H: 1FPS, U: 1FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Back 4 Blood, which returned L: 44FPS, M: 35FPS, H: 23FPS, U: 17FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon RX 560 Yeston Gaea 4GB is going to underperform if you try and run modern games.
