AMD Radeon RX 560 XT full review- in this article, I am going to review RX 560 XT in detail, so in this article, you will know about the Architecture, Frequency, Memory specifications, power consumption, Video Features, Performance, and Gaming Experience of this GPU

AMD Radeon RX 560 XT

AMD Radeon RX 560 XT

Name and Architecture:

Manufacturer: AMD
Model: Radeon RX 560 XT
Architecture: Graphics Core Next 4.0
Fabrication process: 14 nm
Transistors: 5.7 billion
Bus interface: PCI-E 3.0 x 16
Launch date: March 2019

When this gpu was out in 2019, we knew that it was going to beat some of the best gpu in the market and this gpu really did. This gpu has a similar performance to the RX 570, but slightly has fewer Cuda cores and a little slower clock speeds. This gpu has 5.7 Billion transistors which are really big in number compared to the RX 560. This gpu is also so powered efficient thanks to its Fabrication process because it’s based on 14NM. This gpu has some of the most amazing bases and boost clock speeds. Everyone that has a compatible motherboard will eke the best performance from this gpu.


Graphics clock: 973 MHz
Boost clock: 1073 MHz

The base frequency of this GPU is 973 MHz, which is faster than most new GPUs. The Boost Clock is also faster than other GPUs at this point which is 1073 MHz the base frequency is going to help in mostly GPU-bound games like Call of Duty Warzone.

Memory specifications:

Memory size: 4096 MB
Memory type: GDDR5
Memory clock: 1650 MHz
Memory clock (effective): 6600 MHz
Memory interface width: 256 bit
Memory bandwidth: 211.2 GB/s

AMD Radeon RX 560 XT has 4 GB of GDDR5 memory with a frequency of 1650 MHz. Which is really fast compared to its predecessors. The memory clock of this GPU is 6.6 GHz, which is amazingly fast, and don’t forget this GPU is also power full. The memory bandwidth is a lot faster than its predecessor also. Like it’s faster than AMD Radeon RX 550 and AMD Radeon R7 250. The memory bandwidth is freaking 211 GB/s which is awesome.  The cache memories are also good in terms of performance. The memory clock of this AMD Radeon RX 560 XT is 6.6 GHz which will help in boosting game performance.

Cores & Texture:

Compute units: 28
Color ROPs: 32
Stream processors: 1792
Texture units: 112
Decoders: Adobe Flash
DXVA 1.0 & 2.0
MPEG 2 (SH & HD)
MPEG-4 Part 2 (DivX/Xvid)
MVC (Blu-ray 3D)

AMD Radeon RX 560 XT has 1792 Stream Processors. The Cuda cores are more than AMD Radeon RX 550 and AMD Radeon R7 250. There are also 32 ROPs that help in rotating, resizing, and much more. There are 112 Texture Units. There are also 28 Compute units that help with the CPU performance to get the most out of this GPU.

Electric characteristics:

Maximum power draw: 150W

This GPU’s maximum power consumption is 150W 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 170 W which is a lot to get faster performance when it’s overclocked. You can get 10-15% more FPS when it’s overclocked but I would not recommend that if you don’t know about overclocking.

Video features:

Multi-monitor: Up to 4 displays
Maximum digital resolution: 7680 x 4320
Maximum DP resolution: 7680 x 4320
Maximum DVI resolution: 2560 x 1600
Maximum HDMI resolution: 4096 x 3112
Anti-Aliasing technologies: 24 x MSAA
24 x SSAA
Adaptive AA
MLAA 2.0
HDMI version: 2.0b

The max monitor support increases with the increase of new technologies and with new updates from monitors, TVs, etc. the GPU’s updates as well. This GPU can support maximum display at 8K with up to 1 monitor. There are vainest with different display outputs. But you will find more than 4 display connectors. There are some variants with thunderbolt displays at well. But there will be 2 display ports 1.4 and 2 HDMI 2.0b connectors. The display port can support 8K at 60Hz which is amazing. Because there will be no lags, and no delays with this new DP version. There is no 8K support on HDMI.


Pixel fill rate: 34.34 Gigapixels/s
Texture fill rate: 120.18 Gigatexels/s
Single precision computes power: 3845.63 GFLOPS
Double precision computes power: 3845.46 GFLOPS

The pixel fill rate of This GPU has scored 34.34 Gigapixels/s which is amazingly fast compared to its predecessors. The texture fill rate also scores 120.18 Gigatexels/s. That’s why it supports 4K at high frame rates thanks to ROP’s. Single computing also scores 3845.63 GFLOPS, and double precision computes power scores 3845.46 GFLOPS this is amazingly fast. In terms of performance, this GPU is faster than GTX 760.

External connectors:

Standard display connectors: 3 x DisplayPort 1.4
Power connectors: 1 x 6-pin
Audio input for HDMI: Yes

Well, one of the most important and key factors about this GPU is its power consumption. This GPU is not that power-hungry. This GPU needs 1 x 6-pin connectors. There are also 2 display ports, 1 HDMI, 1 Type C port, which is really great for multiple monitors. There is also Audio input from HDMI which also helps with these new monitors.


Length: 9.5 inches (241 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 9.5 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 AMD Radeon RX 560 XT 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. AMD Radeon RX 560 XT also has Open GL 4.6 support which is also faster than the Open GL 4.5. AMD Radeon RX 560 XT 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. AMD Radeon RX 560 XT has the Shader model 6.4.

Gaming Experience:

The gaming experience of this GPU is really great. AMD Radeon RX 560 XT 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 powerful. The more Cuda cores the faster the performance of a GPU will be. Running GTA 5 on this GPU will give you around 60+ FPS. And in almost every game this GPU shows the best performance.
