AFOX Radeon RX 560 4GB Complete review


Radeon RX 560 4GB Complete review- When we are testing this GPU after a long time we discover that it did get better over time, in some latest updates. We saw some big performance improvements in the latest software updates from AMD. It is really a great value GPU in the market these days. I mean I will never recommend this GPU to anyone but if you want to play really low-graphics games then this GPU might get you the best performance. You can easily find this GPU for just $40-50. Which is totally worth the price. So in today’s article, we will give you a full review of this GPU after 4 years.

AFOX Radeon RX 560 4GB has 1024 Stream Processors. The Cuda cores are more than AMD Radeon RX 550 and AMD Radeon R7 250. There is no Ray tracing support. There are also 16 ROPs that help in rotating, resizing, and much more. There are 64 Texture Units. There are also 16 Compute units that help with the CPU performance to get the most out of this GPU.

Electric characteristics:

Maximum power draw: 75W

This GPU’s maximum power consumption is 75W compared to its predecessor’s 200W. There are also many variants of this GPU that can be further overclocked thus eating more power. Which allows the users to get more out of the GPU. The power limit of this GPU is around 100W which is a lot to get faster performance when it’s overclocked.


Pixel fill rate: 20.4 Gigapixels/s
Texture fill rate: 81.6 Gigatexels/s
Single precision computes power: 2611.2 GFLOPS
Double precision computes power: 163.2 GFLOPS

The pixel fill rate of This GPU has scored 20.4 Gigapixels/which is amazingly fast compared to its predecessors. The texture fill rate also scores 81.6 Gigatexels/s. That’s why it supports 1080P at high frame rates thanks to ROP’s. Now let’s talk about the texture fill rate. Texture fillrate measure how many texels can a GPU render per second. Texture fill rate is always measured in the amount of me like (1s). Texels are basically is three-dimensional space objects and called textured pixels. Single computing also scores 2611.2 GFLOPS, and double precision computes power scores 163.2 GFLOPS this is amazingly fast. In terms of performance, this GPU is faster than GTX 750.


Length: 6.7 inches (170 mm)
Width: Dual-Slot

These days the size of the GPU is also important because there are a lot of cases that don’t fit some long GPUs. This GPU is 6.7 inches, which can fit in most PC cases. Plus the GPU is also Dual-slot which helps in heat overflow.

Features & Support:

Other features: Direct Compute 12
AMD PowerTune
AMD ZeroCore Power
ATI/AMD PowerPlay
HD3D Technology
High Dynamic Range (HDR) Support
Open CL support: 2.0
OpenGL support: 4.6
DirectX support: 12.0
Mantle support: Yes
Vulkan support: 1.1.108
Shader model: 6.4

There are a lot of new features in this GPU, and they are updated over time. The most amazing new features of this GPU are Direct Compute 12, AMD PowerTune, AMD ZeroCore Power, ATI/AMD PowerPlay, HD3D Technology, HDCP, High Dynamic Range (HDR) Support, etc. This AFOX Radeon RX 560 4GB has Open CL support 2.0 which is a lot more efficient than the last gen Open CL. This will help in boost in performance. AFOX Radeon RX 560 4GB also has Open GL 4.6 support which is also faster than the Open GL 4.5. AFOX Radeon RX 560 4GB also has DirectX 12 ultimate support. The Vulkan support is also 1.1 which makes the drivers experience more up-to-date. The Shader model makes the texture experience more accurate and more efficient and fast. AFOX Radeon RX 560 4GB has the Shader model 6.4.

Gaming Experience:

The gaming experience of this GPU is really great. AFOX Radeon RX 560 4GB has the fastest memories, fast clock speeds, faster memory clock speeds, more Cuda cores, the newest architecture, and higher bandwidth. Which makes the gaming experience more. The more Cuda cores the faster the performance of a GPU will be. Running GTA 5 on this GPU will give you around 50+ FPS. And in almost every game this GPU shows the best performance.

My name is Shahzada Fahad and I am an Electrical Engineer. I have been doing Job in UAE as a site engineer in an Electrical Construction Company. Currently, I am running my own YouTube channel "Electronic Clinic", and managing this Website. My Hobbies are * Watching Movies * Music * Martial Arts * Photography * Travelling * Make Sketches and so on...


  1. Shahzada, interesting and nicely written, I still couldn’t find a reasonably priced GPU new for a basic gfx data analysis PC. An option on a RX 5600xt fell through so I had to order a dual fan RX 560 4GB GDDR5.
    Paying 33% more for new cards without hw en/decoders and only PCIEx4 or worse seemed appalling in case it’s wanted in an old 10th gen or Zen2 PC in future.
    As AMD driver support is better on old cards, with the extra software download still available from AMD website for use with WHQL drivers installed by WinUpdate, I find older AMD gear still usable long after more recent Nvidia.
    There’s a driver mod team too, who managed to add the AI background noise suppression to the Polaris GPUs, shortly after its experimental release on RDNA2.
    The main drawback is so much more software is written for CUDA than OpenCL and AMD have been pushing ROCM from HPC into ML and it’s been Intel that seems to support OpenCL more loudly.

  2. On the explanation of the memory bandwidth, it looked imprecise and unclear, so I checked an old review to confirm the details.
    The GDDR5 frequency is 1750MHz, quad data rate gives the bandwidth of 7Gb/s (just under 1GB/s data transfer). As the data bus is 128bit, the 112GB/s is from 7Gb/s x 128/8bits per Byte = 7x64x2Gb/s /8 b/B = 7x8x2 GB/s= 112GB/s.
    Nowadays the RDNA2 GPUs were clocking as high as 2700GHz and default memory clock is 2GHz, but they actually started using faster rated GDDR6 18Gb/s than the originally specced 16Gb/s in production Q2/21 long before the RX 6×50 cards launched.
    Even looking at the Pascal competition the frequencies were similar, so the RX 560 4GB was actually underwhelming in 2017 on launch, more was expected.
