RX 560 with Athlon II X3 450 1080p, 1440p, 4K benchmarks at Ultra Quality

The RX 560 is more suitable for budget PC builds and less demanding games. The price/performance ratio is excellent for RX 560 against the competition in budget graphics cards. The RX 560 's power requirements are reasonable and it is very efficient compared to the competition. With regards to max load temperature, the RX 560 's cooling is excellent at keeping it cool and under control. This combination between RX 560 and AMD Athlon II X3 450 has less than 15% bottleneck in many games and can cause minor FPS loss. With current 4096 MB RAM, the RX 560 can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.

The RX 570 might be the mid-range flagship of the latest GCN 4.0 set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most entry-level PC gamers. On the other hand, the RX 560 is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 99. AMD ’s xx60 cards have always been defined by entry-level prices with performance that knocks on the door of mid-range graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the GCN 4.0 graphics card inside the RX 560, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

The RX 560 is much more cheaper than the RX 460 as it costs $ 99. Compare this to the RX 460, which came originally at a price of $ 140. Meanwhile, the NVIDIA closest equivalent card is the GTX 1050 which costs $ 169. Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the RX 560 consistently delivers frame rate increases over the RX 460, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade.

Whether it is a justifiable upgrade depends on what graphics card you are upgrading from. Users with a RX 460 will not see a remarkable increase in frame rates after paying more for this RX 560. Similarly, those holding onto GTX 1050 's GTX 950 graphics cards will not have a reason to jump teams yet.

Critics Reviews

Conclusion. The pace at which new hardware hit our lab this summer meant we couldn’t review all of AMD’s Radeon RX 500-series cards consecutively.
The Radeon RX 560 Series Graphics plays gamers' favorites at a smooth 1080p, from the latest eSports games and MOBAs to the most popular, graphically intensive AAA titles. As more games adopt DirectX 12 and Vulkan™, combined with frequent software updates by AMD, the RX 560 will also continue to deliver in the future.
When the Radeon RX 560 launched in April it was the only RX 500-series card with a meaningful under-the-hood tech boost compared to the RX 400-series. The graphics processor in the older RX 460 ...
Related AMD Radeon RX 590 Rumored To Launch on ... The graphics card that has leaked out is the Radeon RX 560X which is the direct replacement to the Radeon RX 560 (successor of the Radeon RX 460).
By contrast, AMD never shipped a fully enabled Polaris 11 part under the 400 series (excluding the Macbook Pro specific Radeon Pro 460), so the RX 560 was a notable step up from the 14 CU Radeon ...
The AMD Radeon RX 500 series cards, as previously confirmed, will include the Radeon RX 580 (Polaris 10), Radeon RX 570 (Polaris 10), Radeon RX 560 (Polaris 11) and the Radeon RX 550 (Polaris 12).
AMD’s Radeon RX 500-series refresh was a quick blitz of mostly recycled GPUs and iterative nomenclature. But there were a couple of developments that made the 500-series notably more competitive ...

Rx 550 4gb vs rx 560 2gbBoth have the same cost, so what is worth more 2x vram from 550 or 2x stream processors from 560+ clock speed?

vram is irrelevant to actual performancethe same for stream processorsthe 560 is superiorthe gtx 1050 ti should be around the same price and is better

R7 370 or RX 560Which would run better for gaming,r7 370 2gb 256 bit or rx560 2gb 128 bit.R7 is 1000mhz,rx560 is 1300mhz. Also would it run most games on high-ultra if I went crossfire with R7?

neither graphics cards should have any issues with the games you have listed as long as you play at 1080p.If you plan on playing newer games soon, I would suggest the RX 560, if you arent then pick the R7 370

R7 370x2 or RX560?I have looked and I can either get another R7 370 or a new RX560 for about the same price.The 560 is faster but 370 has twice the memory bandwidth (256 as opposed to 128)

R7 370 has similar performance as rx560. So its not worth the upgrade (its more like sidegrade). Crossfire is not supported well (or at all) in many games, so it depends of what are you planning to play. Its better to wait for now, because the cheapest gpu which worth the upgrade is rx580 or gtx 1060. And the prices are still high because of the miners.

GTX 1050 TI VS RX 560 4GB For 1080pSo i already have Pentium G4560 and a GTX 750Ti, looking for an upgrade. Which one is better?Price difference is not far here, before anyone saying RX 570 is a better option, the RX 570 is far far more expensive than the two.Please share your thoughts! Thanks.
