AMD Radeon RX 560X Mobile: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon RX 560X Mobile

Summary

AMD started Radeon RX 560X Mobile sales 5 January 2017. 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 92.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-B (3.0) interface. Power consumption is at 65 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 20.26 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090.
