How well can the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the more powerful mid range graphics cards, the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB might struggle sometimes with the more system demanding game requirements. All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2019 popular games. This short Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 332 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a weak frame rate from Diablo 4 with 0 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Planet Zoo which returns a weak 24 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Red Dead Redemption 2 which we saw getting a playable 29 FPS.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB will run the upcoming game Diablo 4 to a weak performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Another game tested was Planet Zoo, L: 47FPS, M: 37FPS, H: 25FPS, U: 18FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Red Dead Redemption 2, which returned L: 58FPS, M: 46FPS, H: 31FPS, U: 22FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB we get the impression that it is not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.

How many years will the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB in your PC? This Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 87% better and can run 895 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.
