In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB.

The RX 560 has a 55 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 480, but the RX 480 has 80 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 560. As a result, the RX 480 exhibits a 86.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the RX 560. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX 560 has a 55 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 480, but the RX 480 has 16 more Render Output Units than the RX 560. As a result, the RX 480 exhibits a 17 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the RX 560. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 560 was released less than a year after the RX 480, 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 480 has 2048 MB more video memory than the RX 560, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX 480 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 480 has 112 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 560, which means that the memory performance of the RX 480 is massively better than the RX 560.

The Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 480 4GB has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 560 is 1318 and the actual shader performance of the RX 480 is 2917. The RX 480 having 1599 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 480 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 560.

The Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB requires 80 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 480 4GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 560 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 480. The RX 480 requires 40 Watts more than the RX 560 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX 480 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 560.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
\r\Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

\r\nGPU
\r\nIt equips a GPU Codenamed Polaris 21 which has 16 Compute Units activated and thus 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 16 ROPs. It has a small overclock to the boost clock speed of the RX 560, running at 1287MHz comparedto 1275MHz at stock clock speeds.

\r\nMemory
\r\nThe GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, 7GHz effective.

\r\nPower Consumption
\r\nWith a rated board TDP of 80W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no Extra Connectors are required.

\r\nPerformance
\r\This graphics card was designed and marketed towards the competitive MOBO gamers. 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 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 900p screen res and expect around 45+FPS

\r\nSystem Suggestions
\r\Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. Higher resolutions will be an issue due to the limited 2GB of VRAM.. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
