AMD Radeon RX 560 Mobile
AMD started Radeon RX 560 Mobile sales 5 January 2017 at a recommended price of $99.99. This is Polaris architecture notebook card based on 14 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 96 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-B (3.0) interface. Power consumption is at 55 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at
percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.

Cloud Gate is an outdated DirectX 11 feature level 10 benchmark that was used for home PCs and basic notebooks. It displays a few scenes of some weird space teleportation device launching spaceships into unknown, using fixed resolution of 1280x720. Just like Ice Storm benchmark, it has been discontinued in January 2020 and replaced by 3DMark Night Raid.
Fire Strike is a DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming PCs. It features two separate tests displaying a fight between a humanoid and a fiery creature seemingly made of lava. Using 1920x1080 resolution, Fire Strike shows off some realistic enough graphics and is quite taxing on hardware.
3DMark 11 is an obsolete DirectX 11 benchmark by Futuremark. It used four tests based on two scenes, one being few submarines exploring the submerged wreck of a sunken ship, the other is an abandoned temple deep in the jungle. All the tests are heavy with volumetric lighting and tessellation, and despite being done in 1280x720 resolution, are relatively taxing. Discontinued in January 2020, 3DMark 11 is now superseded by Time Spy.
Let's see how good Radeon RX 560 Mobile is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
Here are the average frames per second in a large set of popular games across different resolutions:
|Far Cry 5||35|
|Far Cry 5||30|
|The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt||35|
|Far Cry 5||27|
|The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt||20|
