In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 580 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 560D 2GB.

The RX 580 has a 167 MHz higher core clock speed and 88 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 560D. This results in the RX 580 providing 120 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 RX 580 has a 167 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the RX 560D. This results in the RX 580 providing 22.8 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 less than a year after the RX 580, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

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 RX 580 has 2048 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 RX 580 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 580 has 224 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 560D, which means that the memory performance of the RX 580 is massively better than the RX 560D.

The Radeon RX 560D 2GB has 896 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 580 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 560D is 699 and the actual shader performance of the RX 580 is 3147. The RX 580 having 2448 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 580 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 560D.

The Radeon RX 560D 2GB requires 75 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 580 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB requires 150 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 RX 580. The RX 580 requires 75 Watts more than the RX 560D to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX 580 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
First off we should point out that this is not the new AMD Vega graphics card line. The new AMD Radeon RX 500 series are an uprated version of the RX 400 series that they are replacing. This HIS RX 580 IceQ X2 OC graphics card is one of the two more powerful models from the new AMD Radeon RX 500 Series.

This RX 580 is the 4GB version and there is also the higher VRAM version, RX580 8GB available.

Architecture
It equips a GPU codenamed Polaris 20 XTX, which has 2304 shader processing units, 144 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The Radeon RX 580 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB central processing unit runs at 1257MHz and goes up to a top 1366MHz when in boost and turbo mode, where as the reference RX 580 card's boost is a lower 1340MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 2000MHz.

Power Consumption
The RX 580 4GB has a power TDP requirement of 150W. This means it will require at least a 500W PSU with one dedicated 8-pin connector.

Performance
Early benchmarks indicate that the AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB will be similar in performance to the Nvidia GTX 1060 in terms of gaming performance. This puts the RX 580 4GB about 8% faster than the model it replaced, the AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB. Comparing the RX 580 to RX 570 we see 1440p frame rates around 8-15% better with the RX580 version

System Suggestions
The new HIS RX 580 IceQ X2 OC 4GB released on the 18th April 2017 and is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a high-end processor, like the new Ryzen R5 and at least 8GB of RAM for optimal gaming performance.
