How well can the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC V3 2GB run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the more powerful mid range graphics cards, the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC V3 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.

Here is a performance review on how capable the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC V3 2GB is at running the more popular games of 2019. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 334 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Running at 1080p this card gets a playable frame rate from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with 29 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Need For Speed Heat which returns a playable 29 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Death Stranding which we predict will get a weak 0 FPS.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC V3 2GB to see that it got a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 58FPS, M: 46FPS, H: 31FPS, U: 22FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Need For Speed Heat which seemed weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 22 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Death Stranding where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 0 FPS. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC V3 2GB we get the impression that it is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.

How many years will the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC V3 2GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC V3 2GB in your PC? This Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC V3 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 PowerColor Red Dragon OC V3 2GB? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB, which has 88% better performance and can run 897 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, as it can run 685 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 40% increased graphics performance.

Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC V3 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC V3 2GB is an Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.
GPU It 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 factory base overclock from 1175MHz to 1180MHz.
Memory The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, 7GHz effective.
Power Consumption With 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.
Performance 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. It is identical to the Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC 2GB except for having a smaller form factor and single-fan cooling solution. This will make it worse for overclocking. The Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC V3 2GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 900p screen res and expect around 45+FPS
System Suggestions Radeon RX 560 PowerColor Red Dragon OC V3 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900.rnHigher resolutions will be an issue due to the limited 2GB of VRAM.. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
