Test Driver

  • Radeon Software Crimson 17.6.2

GPU Tweak II

The ROG STRIX RX560 Gaming has 1336Hz boost clock speed, but didn’t run at factory OC speed out of the box; you need to install GPU Tweak II software, in order to set the OC mode for the card. The card has three modes, OC mode (1336MHZ), Gaming mode (1326MHz) and Silent mode (Stock clock speed).

For manual Overclocking controls, you need to click on Professional Mode on down right corner. The Professional Mode has all the necessary options for Overclocking.

Overclocking

For Overclocking we didn’t apply any voltage, just set the Power Limit slider to the max and pushed the clock speed higher. But sadly I only manage to get +30 MHz more at the core, which results in a 1356MHz. I try to push for more, but even with added voltage card didn’t achieve any higher clock speed. So it’s safe to say this card not meant for Overclocking and most users at this price point not expected to do any Overclocking anyway.
