Packaging and Overview
The box is similar to other ASUS graphics cards, but smaller and built completely out of cardboard. At the front, we can see the picture of the card and at the back feature of the card.
The first impression, the new STRIX RX RX560 is very compact just like its predecessor; the cooler shroud is made out of plastic and out of the box has no colored highlights, though you can use included stickers add some red accent into it. The card cooling is provided by two 80mm Wing-Blade 0dB fans.
At the back, ASUS used a full mat-black PCB which is just 7.5-inch in length.
On the back, we will find a single PWM case fan connector, which allows the GPU to control one case fan speed according to GPU temperature to give maximum air flow.
The display output includes one DVI-D, one HDMI 2.0 and one Display Port.
ASUS uses a full custom PCB and their high-quality components, with 4-phase VRM design. Also, VRMs are covered by a small heatsink to cool them. In the center, we can see AMD’s Polaris 11 chip and it sounded by memory modules.
