AMD Radeon RX 560 (Laptop)

The AMD Radeon RX 560 for laptops (RX 560M) is a mid-range Polaris 10 gaming graphics card for laptops. It was first shown at CES 2017 in the Lenovo Legion Y520 as the "AMD RX 560M" with up to 4 GB GDDR5 VRAM. According to our sources, the RX 560M is a rebrand of the old RX 460 for laptops with the possibility of small bumps to the clock speed and/or shader count. As a result, gaming performance should be similar to the old Radeon RX 470 for laptops or perhaps even the desktop version. The Nvidia equivalent will likely be the GeForce GTX 1050 based on performance predictions.
