In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX Vega 8.

The RX 560 has a 244 MHz higher core clock speed but 16 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the RX Vega. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the RX 560 manages to provide 0.7 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 560 has a 244 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega, but the RX Vega has 16 more Render Output Units than the RX 560. As a result, the RX Vega exhibits a 11 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 Vega was released less than a year after the RX 560, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The RX Vega 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 Vega also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX Vega has 246.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 560, which means that the memory performance of the RX Vega is massively better than the RX 560.

The Radeon RX Vega 8 has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 841 and the actual shader performance of the RX 560 is 1318. The RX 560 having 477 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the RX Vega performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB requires 80 Watts to run but there is no entry for the RX Vega. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the RX Vega and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 560. The RX 560 has been recommended a PSU with 50 Watts more than the RX Vega. The difference is significant enough that the RX 560 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX Vega.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview Radeon RX Vega M GL is a dedicated Graphics processor found in Intel's Desktop 8th Gen G-Series CPUs. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed Vega M which offers 20 Compute Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 931MHz and goes up to 1011MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU utilises its own onboard HBM2 memory. Radeon RX Vega M GH has 4GB of second-generation High Bandwidth Memory, clocked at 1.4Gb/s. Sat on a 1024-bit memory interface, this provides total memory bandwidth of 179.2GB/s. Performance The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GTX 1050. Select the Specific Version you have of this Graphics Card According to your Processor for a more Accurate Rank and experience using our tools. System Suggestions We recommend 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon RX Vega M GH.Overview
\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\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\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\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.
