Published: 2 months ago | Comments

AMD finally releases RX 560

We knew this card would arrive at some point. Polaris 11 was the only GPU in RX 400 series that was not available with all cores enabled, at least not as an official desktop gaming solution in all regions. Chinese board partners decided to give us a taste of full Polaris 11, but these cards were only available in some regions. Starting from today, fully-enabled Polaris 11 will be available as RX 560, everywhere.

The new card features 1024 Stream Processors, 64 Texture Units and 16 Raster Units. The Radeon RX 560 is equipped with 2GB GDDR5 memory across 128-bit interface. Board partners will also offer 4GB variants.

This card has higher clocks than RX 460, but also higher typical board power (TDB) of 80W.

The RX 560 will be cheaper than RX 460 at launch: suggested retail price is 99 USD.
