AMD has quietly added Radeon RX 560; cheap but quite powerful graphics card to its Radeon series. The graphics card consumes 80W power while packing a good enough performance giving 1080p on few titles and 60FPS on most of the new games. All in all, it only costs $99.
- AMD Radeon RX 560 has following hardware specifications:
- Powered by Polaris 21 GPU
- Base Clock: 1175 MHz
- Boost Clock: 1275 MHz
- 1024 Stream processors
- 64 TMUs
- 16 ROPs
- 2GB/4GB GDDR5 configurations available
- 7Gbps with 128-bit memory bus
- TDP: 80 Watt
AMD has pitched a very low price for Radeon RX 560. The card surely takes in less power while giving away good output performance relatively. Radeon RX 560 will soon become a number one choice for customers looking for a low-end budget GPU or a GPU under $100. For comparison, AMD showed a test comparison between Radeon RX 560 and Radeon R7 360.
The comparisons show how good the GPU handles the power hungry games like Battlefield 1, CIVILIZATION V, Hitman and others. For a GPU under $100, the Radeon RX 560 gives 60 FPS 1080p gaming experience. This move from AMD is quite plausible and well targeted at audience who look for a GPU under $100.
Meanwhile, AMD may launch a mid or low-end VEGA GPUs, although it is not sure at this point. There can be a possibility of a mid-range Vega card, this is mere speculation only. This came from a leaked benchmark sample revealing an unknown AMD Vega with a core clock of 1200MHz and a boost clock of 1400MHz. This could translate into a mid-range or low-end VEGA GPU. The benchmarks point at a Vega GPU slower in performance than a GTX 1080/Titan, hence this gives possibility of a mid/low-end Vega graphics card.
