In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 EVGA SC GAMING ACX 3.0 8GB Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon RX 560D 2GB.

The GTX 1070 has a 504 MHz higher core clock speed and 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 560D. This results in the GTX 1070 providing 130.3 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1070 has a 504 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Render Output Units than the RX 560D. This results in the GTX 1070 providing 84.6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 560D was released over a year more recently than the GTX 1070, and so the RX 560D is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 1070.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GTX 1070 has 6144 MB more video memory than the RX 560D, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1070 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1070 has 256.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 560D, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1070 is massively better than the RX 560D.

The Radeon RX 560D 2GB has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1070 EVGA SC GAMING ACX 3.0 8GB Edition has 1920. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 560D is 699 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1070 is 4624. The GTX 1070 having 3925 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1070 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 560D.

The RX 560D transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1070. This means that the RX 560D is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1070.

The Radeon RX 560D 2GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1070 EVGA SC GAMING ACX 3.0 8GB Edition requires 180 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the RX 560D and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1070. The GTX 1070 requires 105 Watts more than the RX 560D to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1070 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 560D.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon RX 560D 2GB is a middle-class graphics card based on the third revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
It equips a GPU codenamed Polaris 10 which is a 1st gen Polaris GPU, offering 896 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it requires at least a 350W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
This graphics card is rebrand of the Radeon RX 460 and was designed and marketed towards cryptocurrency miners and low to mid-end gaming. A light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 560D 2GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 1600p screen res and expect around 45+FPS. THe low TDP makes it a cost effective choice for cryptocurrency miners.

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 460 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a mid range CPU and 8GB of system memory for optimal performance.
Overview
