AMD Radeon Pro 560: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon Pro 560

Summary

AMD started Radeon Pro 560 sales 5 June 2017. This is Polaris architecture notebook card based on 14 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5.08 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 81.28 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x8 interface. Power consumption is at 75 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 7.70 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
