    Great budget gaming card

    This is a great budget gaming card. I built it up with an i5-7400, 8 GB DDR2400 RAM and a 500 GB SSD. All is hooked up to a 30-inch 2560x1600 IPS display. Games I play include Lord of the Rings Online, Guild Wars 1/2, Diablo series, CS:GO, Borderlands 1/2. Looking to make some cash I sold my GTX 1070 and put this Radeon RX560 into the rig. I see absolutely no difference in real-world gaming experience between the two cards at 2560x1600. I know on paper and by tech specs there is no comparison between these classes of cards (and that the GTX 1070 blows it away). But all of the above games assign highest/best quality settings to both cards when I auto-detect the graphics properties. Sure, FRAPS tells me a different story when I actually watch framerates. But as far as gaming experience goes I see absolutely no difference. Actually, I prefer the colors and saturation of the AMD Radeon RX560 over the GTX 1070. Bottom line - in more demanding top tier games this card would most likely be trounced by other offerings. But if you are playing games similar to those listed above, even at 2K resolutions, the RX 560 will do perfectly well and provide you quite a satisying experience without stuttering or lag. I hope this helps someone making a decision on their purchase.

    Disappointed with the purchase and customer servic

    Purchased this graphics to meet the new configuration I was building with Asrock X470 MB and AMD1700X CPU because the cpu lacked a apu. After installing the display on hdmi port came up and then installed all the needed drivers to enable an dual monitor setup. During usage after 2-3hrs the system used to go full blank with black screen of death. I tried everything changing the MB, RAM, PSU then found out that its an issue with the GPU. The front of the card was freaking burning hot even though the stats showed 60 deg c. I am not a gamer or pro..just normal usage with no overclocking enabled. Created an RMA and CS sucks. They wanted me to pay the shipping for RMA. The whole ordeal took 20 days to get an response that the card is working fine and just for peace of mind will send a new replacement. When I received the notice of shipment they are sending the same card back and was acknowledged by the techinican that they made in a mistake in resending the same one. I would never buy any of the products again from this manufacturer. I am still yet to receive the shipment and check it out. For all probabilities the issue still remains the same. I bought an MSI Nvidia gpu and is working like a breeze with no issues. Should not have purchased at the first instance itself. Very very disappointed

    The worse GPU I've purchased.

    Firstly, I have many computers, from high end to low end and of all the computer parts I've had in between, I've never had more of an issue than I have had with this card. I've had this card for 5 months now and it's already died. This card is nearly incompatible with windows 10. By that, I mean, you'll maybe get an update from windows, or amd, and poof, your card is ruined. It's not like it slows down, it just ceases to work. You'll lose all power to your display and spend hours trying to figure out how to fix it. Guess what, you won't. Because AMD is refusing to address this problem correctly. If you even wanted to fix this gpu, you'd have to backtrack dozen's of updates, even still, windows 10 may just revert that because, oh well, windows 10 can't be told no anymore. The good news, this company has a 3 year warranty, the BAD? It's impossible to create an account. They want ALL of your billing information, phone number, full name, email, just to be able to EMAIL THEM. That's not even for the warranty part. If you choose to even include that information, guess what, you go to their non-secured web-page(their words) and by the time you've finished? The page has timed out. AVOID the hassle, do not purchase this card, or anything with AMD until Microsoft and AMD decide to make their products even remotely compatible without having to use loaner CPU's and GPU's to update drivers and firmware that should already exist.

    Good entry level card - with a caveat.

    FYI - RX 560's come in two forms now - 1024 shaders and 896 shaders. AMD doesn't do a good job being clear on which card is which. This one's the 896 shader version. Read the fine print before you buy but the actual performance difference is only about 3%-10% real world. Pro's - Very good FPS performance on 720p. Ok FPS performance on 1080p. (This is not for 4k games but does support 4k video). The card runs cool and quiet. DX12 and Vulcan support. It's a vast improvement on the Intel 530 integrated graphics it's meant to replace. It's a few FPS slower than the 1024 shader version and the GTX 1050 2gb cards (varies from game to game) - but it's less expensive too. If you want 60 FPS+ 1080p gaming you should get an RX 570 or a GTX 1060 anyway. This one's attached to an older 720p TV and does very well in e-sports titles. Most AAA titles can be played at lower to mid settings. The most demanding titles will display but won't play well. It need's a dedicated power connector because of t's power requirements so check your power supply to make sure it's big enough. I needed a budget priced card to give a handed down gaming PC some punch for my son on his TV (I kept my GTX 1070 for me). This works great. If his TV (monitor) was 1080p I would have gotten a higher end card.

    Perfect For Most Tasks and Gaming Low to High

    Posted

    It's exactly half the power of an RX480 in terms of stream processing and performance which for the price it's a very good option, it's suited for Low to High Graphics with Medium or High being the most common game settings used, over that and it doesn't do as well, but that's to be expected with a non-full sized graphics card. It ran fine in everything from an old Inspiron 530 to a new modern Ryzen system. It's suprisingly cool and quiet, the fan rarely comes on. The graphics quality of video's is crisp and clear. It works well for Mid to High end content creation, the speed and memory of 4GB is currently enough though I wish it was 8GB and had more stream processors, for how it's being used it works fine no complaints. Handles web browsing, video playback, gameplay and more... Runs fine with software like: Blender Unreal Engine 4 GIMP Substance Painter Substance Designer Bitmap 2 Material Youtube (1080p 60FPS no problem.) Windows 10 Pro Linux Games like World of Tanks or CS:GO (Low to High Settings, FPS does normally between 60 to 159 with 90 and higher being more common and with tweaked got 248 Max.) The price is really perfect for this product.

    I had a cyberpower with an GP of only 2gb DDR3, but ironically all the other stats were killer: AMD 8350 eight core @ 3.5 GHZ w/o overclock, 16 gig ram... stock, 2 TB hard drive. So this was a solid model other than graphics card. Even with the increased prices right now for 189.99 current full price, this 4 gb DDR5 GPU made my computer run pretty much anything in "high". I was impressed because I wasn't expecting that. Later on I ended up getting an AlienWare Aurora R7 with a NVidia gforce GTX 1070 8 gig video card, as much as I like this PC... it isn't that much better than my 2 yr old CP was with the RX 560. The Alien Ware is much quieter, and obviously runs a little smoother.... But for people with a relatively limited budget and an already decent rig, this video card will allow you to play any current game. at the time of this review. Maybe not in High, but at least in medium for the full 60 fps. For example I could put COD black ops 3 in HIGH accross the board without much stuttering, didn't try GTA 5

    Mind you, this is not a "premium" graphics card, but to me and my boys it is a GREAT investment. Previous card was an NVidia GeForce 970 and this card outperforms it. For example, in an older game, Just Cause 3, the framerates at 1080p jumped from 45-50 to an average of 110. This is but one small example. The fans are much quieter and overall the card runs much cooler. According to HWMonitor Pro, on Idle it runs about 43 Celsius and the highest I've seen under load is about 90 celsius. I had bought a GeForce 1050 Ti, but I believe this outperforms that card as well. Definitely worth the money if you're looking to upgrade your rig. The system specs are as follows: i7-4400 16GB DDR3 256GB SSD 1TB 7200 RPM HDD AMD XFX RX560 450 watt power supply Windows 10 Pro

    Giving it 5 stars but there is a catch w/ old BIOS

    Posted
    Flood404

    In order to use this card your motherboard's BIOS has to be UEFI and not using a legacy BIOS. So do not expect this card to work in something made in 2011 or older. Or Socket 775 systems or older or AM2+ or older those will most likely not have the UEFI BIOS. If you tried to install this in a computer running a legacy BIOS. The driver will refuse to load with a code 43. Does not matter if the computer is running windows 10 or 8.1 or even 7 it will not work because of the UEFI BIOS requirement.

    I bought this for my son’s computer to allow him to play games and I have to say for the money this was the best option I had and it was well worth it. He now plays games just as well as I can on my computer even though I have much more expensive equipment without any issues. He doesn’t get the mad frame rate but at medium high settings he’s happy and so am I.

    After having used Nvidia products for years I must say I have come to realize there literally is little or no difference between the brands. AMD/ATi adrenaline edition software really is top notch, runs my games great, works excellent with Windows and offers fair amounts of VRAM for games. One negative is running on a Linux system the GRUB boot screen is not the correct coloring. Least not sine I last tested it and forum support, good luck getting help there.

    This card works well. Got it for my sons to update their computer so they could play fortnite and Minecraft. Paired it with a 600 watt power supply and the computer purrs. Had no issues with installation, had it ready within five minutes. By the way this is my first time installing both a graphics card and power supply. Also quick note: it is compatible with windows 7, and 10. It will not work or be detected with windows 8/8.1.

    Was a great price and was on the shelf for me to pick out!!!! I didnt need anything fancy just a nice GPU to help run my games when my motherboard IO went out. Saved me alot of hassle from buying a new computer. Best buy staff were super helpful in my area also!!! I even came back to buy more gear later that day cuz they helped me so much. This product improved my gaming and video experience immensely without breaking the bank.

    Coming from the outdated gtx 560 ti, this has been a worthy upgrade. Would recommend checking the price for the rx 580 8gb online since the price has gone down and it will give a better bang for your buck. Started up in a different resolution than normal but I just downloaded the updated drivers from the website included in the instructions and it was fixed during install. Great product thus far!

    I've been using this graphics card for a few weeks. It replaces an old malfunctioning graphics card in my 2014 Lenovo. I had to also upgrade the power supply to 600W. The card is very quiet, even when under load. The card handles most things with ease. The cooling fan rarely has to start up unless I'm playing a game. The heat sink alone does a good job keeping the chip cool. So far I've been very happy.

    Never play 120 fps games. I simply replaced two ATI Crossfire cards (HD 6700 series) from a couple of generations back and gained more space and less clutter with fewer cables in a new case. But in my research it was getting good reviews and as far as I understand the Crossfire feature is accomplished without the tether in the newer generation cards anyway so I can expand later if necessary.

    I got the XFX RX 560 4GB with GDDR5 for the great price and the fact the GPU takes ONE (not Two) 6 pin power plug for backup power. It runs quiet and cool even when pressed into service for game mode. It also powers thru other tasks, that use the GPU for help (Audio / Video editing). It will fit into almost any computer case easily. (I will add: NOT in "1/2 height" cases though!) Great GPU for upgrading an older system too!

    I upgraded from a gtx 710 and wow this thing is doing the trick. I can play overwatch on epic settings at 80 fps and skyrim on high settings. Fortnight looked kinda funky but it was I was able to rock 90 fps on high settings on call of duty as well which my last graphics card gave me a headache to try and play. I had to buy a better power supply to handle this.

    I play computer games mostly as a single player or in a hot seat mode. I play very few real time games with a high volume of units so I cannot grade this unit for use with real time games with a high volume of units, etc. I play all my games with the options (unit details, water, etc.) set to the highest levels. I play Civ VI with 5-7 leaders and have no problems. I have had no problems with game lag or crashing.

    This card is actually a re branded RX 460. It plays World of Tanks on lower resolutions in ultra. At 1080p, it does 30~50 fps in World of tanks. drop the resolution down and it will do 60fps. I put it in a back up system. It was on sale for $99. In the current market, it is fine for it's price. The GTX 1050 ti I have is much better but can cost 80%+ more these days. For what I paid, I can't complain.

    The card performs well for the price i paid. It was on sale for 99.99, just know that this is the 560D version that only has 896 stream processors. The bestbuy website said this one came with 1024 stream processors. This is incorrect. This is basically a rebagged rx 460. So just be careful, if you are looking for the full rx 560, then look elsewhere.
