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

The Radeon RX 560X 4GB is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

What FPS performance can the Radeon RX 560X 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. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 256.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon RX 560X 4GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Dying Light 2 and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 3 FPS, Medium: 2 FPS, High: 1 FPS and Ultra: 1 FPS. We proceeded to look at Resident Evil 8 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon RX 560X 4GB at 1440p and researched how Dying Light 2 might perform on it leading us to predict a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 2 FPS, Medium: 2 FPS, High: 1 FPS and Ultra: 1 FPS. We then checked out Resident Evil 8 which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And another popular game was Battlefield 2042 with predictions of L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 560X 4GB we get the impression that it is not the best choice to run modern games.

How many years will the Radeon RX 560X 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 560X 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 560X 4GB? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 45% better and can run 625 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300 which is 20% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 311 games from the most demanding games today.

Radeon RX 560X 4GB is an Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture. The specs of the Radeon RX 500X series graphics cards are identical to the standard Radeon RX 500 series.

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.

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 the competitive MOBO gamers. 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 560X 4GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 1080p screen res and expect around 45+FPS. Performance is exactly the same as the Radeon RX 560.

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 560 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
