Based on AMD's fourth-generation GCN architecture and built in the efficient 14-nm FinFET process, the Polaris 11 GPU of the Radeon RX 560 works with a very low TDP of only 80 watts. In conjunction with a FreeSync monitor, you can save money not only with the graphics card but also with the corresponding output device. Above all, price-conscious gamers will be absolutely satisfied with the excellent price / performance ratio of the RX 560.
The features of the ASUS Radeon RX 560 STRIX 4G Gaming at a glance:
Efficient dual fan cooler design
4GB GDDR5 video RAM
Max. 1.285 MHz Boost clock (OC mode)
3.500 MHz (7,000 MHz) memory clock
1x 6-pin power connector
ASUS Radeon RX 560 STRIX 4G Gaming with factory OC & dual fan cooler design
The Radeon RX 560's efficient Polaris 11 graphics chip contains 16 compute units with a total of 1,024 shader units. The GPU of the Radeon RX 560 STRIX 4G Gaming from ASUS clocks in the boost clock with an average of 1.275 MHz in gaming mode. By OC mode this can be increased to 1,285 MHz. The 4GB GDDR5 video memory clocks 3,500 MHz (7,000 MHz), is connected to the GPU (graphics chip) with a 128-bit memory interface and promises solid performance.
With the DirectCU III cooler design from ASUS, the copper heatspipes are located directly on the graphics chip. The heat dissipated on aluminum fins is swirled by three fans. If the graphics chip is not fully charged and requires less cooling, the fans are either shut down or completely switched off. This allows the graphics card to operate as quietly as possible.
The gray-black radiator cover is equipped with RGB LED lighting. Together with the RGB illuminated Strix logo on the top, the Strix graphics card is stylishly set in scene. The RGB LEDs are controlled by the Aura lighting technology. This is also found on various ASUS mainboards. Some of these motherboards even have connectors for RGB LED strips, which then match the mainboard and graphics card for lighting!
Two 4-pin fan connections allow up to two PWM fan fans to be connected to the graphics card. This makes it possible to adjust the rotational speed of the PWM case fans to the temperature of the pixel accelerator. Since the graphics chip usually produces more heat during the rack than the CPU, this solution ensures a better venting of the housing.
14 nm FinFET and GCN 1.3: The AMD Radeon RX 560
Thanks to the efficient 14-nm FinFET manufacturing process and extensive control, power savings and clock rate technologies, the Radeon RX 560 achieves impressive performance with a very low TDP of only 80 watts. The reason for this is the 14 nm technology that allows more transistors to be housed on a smaller surface while the power requirement drops.
The fourth-generation, state-of-the-art Graphics Core Next architecture (GCN 4.0) supports useful features such as a command processor, a geometry processor, new multimedia cores, an optimized display engine, and an improved memory controller. Other supported technologies include Async Compute, Vulkan, DirectX 12 and AMD's FreeSync technology.
Monitors can be connected to the graphics card via three paths. Display port, HDMI or DVI-D Dual-Link are available. This means that up to three screens can be connected to the graphics card in a multi-display setup using EyeFinity technology. The HDMI port in standard 2.0b transmits theoretical resolutions up to 4K / UHD at 60 hertz and has HDCP 2.2 for sending and receiving encrypted signals. Via Displayport 1.4 would be even 8K / UHD at 60 hertz possible.
In order to exploit the full potential of the card in the future, new drivers from AMD or ASUS should be downloaded and installed at regular intervals.
Graphics card exchange without waiting for caseking!
During the warranty period of 2 years from the date of purchase, Caseking will be exchanged directly by the customer for defective graphics cards - ie those with a defect confirmed by us - of all the brands mentioned below directly against new product (if stocked). A sending of the faulty goods to the manufacturer and associated longer waiting times are thus completely eliminated! If the graphic card to be replaced is no longer available or available, we will issue a credit note.
