Average Bench: 22% (198th of 715)

Based on 60,738 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 67FF Models: Radeon RX 560, AMD Radeon (TM) RX 560, Radeon(TM) RX 560 Graphics, AMD Radeon(TM) RX 560, ASUS Radeon RX 560

The Radeon RX 560 is third in the line up of AMD’s second generation Polaris GPUs aimed at the entry-level 1080p gaming market with a sub-$100 launch price, due for release in May 2017. It is the successor to the now nine month old RX 460. Like the RX 460, it is based on Polaris 11, but comes with all 16 compute units enabled (2 more than in the 460). Coupled with a 6% improvement in boost clock speed from 1200MHz to 1275MHz, a minimum increase in overall effective speed of 10% against the 460 is anticipated. The RX 560 is fresh competition to NVIDIA’s GTX 1050 in terms of price and performance. User benchmarks reveal that NVIDIA’s GTX 1050 is faster than the RX 460 by 17% and so it is expected that the 560 will close most, if not all, of that gap. [May '17 GPUPro]

Very poor average bench

The AMD RX 560 averaged 77.9% lower than the peak scores attained by the group leaders. This isn't a great result which indicates that there are much faster alternatives on the comparison list.

Strengths

Avg. Locally-deformable PRT (Bat) 26.9fps
Avg. Force Splatted Flocking (Swarm) 24.2fps

Excellent consistency

The range of scores (95th - 5th percentile) for the AMD RX 560 is just 6%. This is an extremely narrow range which indicates that the AMD RX 560 performs superbly consistently under varying real world conditions.

Weaknesses

Avg. High dynamic range lighting (Teapot) 28.1fps
Avg. Parallax occlusion mapping (Stones) 37.8fps

the lighting fps is dog water (i own this graphics card) It's worse than the gtx 680, (5 years older than this graphics card), it cant even run minecraft with low-end shaders (with optifine) at more than 20 fps. Overall, A horrible graphics card for the money, Just buy a gtx 680.

it's an awesome budget GPU and it plays games like gaming Nvidia cards but at a cheaper price

I don't think about buying this GPU as i suggested spending a little bit more for a much more powerful RX 570 4GB instead. Offered weaker performance than GTX 1050 while requiring significantly more power which makes this GPU a poor choice for those who just want to upgrade GPU or are building the new computer.

Just get a RX 550 if you want light gaming.

My brother was forced to purchase this during the height of the mining craze. I wouldn't advise you to purchase this, as these days there are many great performers for just a little bit more cash. It runs older games at decent settings, but newer ones... SWBF2 at 720p w/ Low crashes constantly.

This card, at its high price, costs MORE than the GTX 1050, and is still slower and worse! Don't buy RX cards if you want the "best bang for your buck."
