Does the AMD RX 560 still hold up?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have been using my PC for 4 years now, it's showing signs of age, and my graphics card used to be pretty fast during that time running my favorite games at 100 FPS. Is the RX 560 still a good standard for today's graphics cards?

it depends on what you do really

if you play the same game forever, then it'll be good forever

 

personally still using an RX460 to play games occasionally on my secondary PC

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Don't really understand the question. It's vastly inferior to current generation cards, and even some last generation cards for that matter, but the only question that every really matters is: is it good enough for you? If all you do is play CS:GO and LoL, sure, it's great. If you're wanting to play modern AAA titles at higher than low settings, probably not so much.

The 460/560 and 1050 have become the new 750 Ti. Solid little cards available cheap on the used market and capable of handling last-gen games at mid-details 1080p.


Sincerely,

 

me

Yeah I meant playing new AAA titles like ones from Ubisoft or some other big game right now. Thank you for answering the question though!
