AMD Radeon RX 560 XT: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon RX 560 XT

Summary

AMD started Radeon RX 560 XT sales 13 March 2019. This is GCN 4.0 architecture desktop card based on 14 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6.6 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 211.2 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is Dual-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 241 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 150 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.79 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
