ALL the benchmarking software and games are run at least three times before taking any numbers from them. To make thing equal we tried our best to make the rest of the system run identically to measure the reviewed parts perform to their best. We believe that everyone should take advantage maximum capability of their products by modestly overclocking them to bring the best performance possible so, we run everything Overclocked. Though we didn’t push them or make tweaks any way that any regular users cannot do, we keep the overclocking to a basic level, which anyone can achieve easily. For a game benchmark, we use one particular section of the game which can repeatable and has a decent level of coverage of that game (including, action, long distant seen and other elements of that game). If any component didn’t perform as expected on any particular benchmark, we retest multiple time and sometimes cross check with the manufacturer or other 3rd party sources to confirm the results.
One thing I want to clear before the benchmarks, for some reason, Futuremark refuses to identify the RX 560 and I also try to compare my results with other RX 560 scores from 3DMark database, the RX 560 also not listed there. Therefore it only shows the card as “Generic VGA”. I did reinstall both 3DMark and drivers but still showing the same thing.

Just like the previous RX460, the new RX560 is also not meant to run max settings or higher resolutions. But in 1080p resolution with medium to high settings, the RX560 can play most current games with 60+ FPS. For E-sports games like CS: GO, DOTA and others the RX560 can comfortably maintain a steady FPS. Also, you can see the RX560 done quite well compared to other cards and with Volken and DirectX 12 games are coming out performance should improve in future. Though the new GPU Chip and better cooler the ROG STRIX RX560 has managed to catch the GTX 1050, much improvement from RX460. Though, the improvements also have to do with driver optimization as the RX 460 results are from the old test and new drivers have improved the performance.
