AMD launches the midrange Radeon RX 560 XT graphics card for the Chinese market
AMD’s Chinese website has revealed the Radeon RX 560 XT graphics card, which according to the marketing text will offer performance upgrades in a value-for-money SKU. A comparison list of FPS scores is conveniently given to demonstrate the new card’s superiority over the RX 560 and how close it is to performing like the RX 570. For example, in AMD’s Battlefield V test scenario the Radeon RX 560 XT manages 60 FPS, walloping the RX 560’s paltry 40 FPS and only falling a short distance behind the RX 570’s 70 FPS.
With 28 compute units, the RX 560 XT is closer to the level of the RX 570 (32 compute units) in this regard too. AMD has stated that the new graphics card has a memory clock of 6.6 Gbps and a 256-bit memory bus width. Base and boost clocks are quite a bit lower than the RX 570, but the new addition has almost as many texture units (112 vs. 128) and has the same amount of render output units (32).
Unlike the RX 560, which was based on Polaris 11, the new midrange card has a faster Polaris 10 chip. Pricing hasn’t been mentioned, but a speculated price of 1,000 yen (~US$149) has been suggested. The Radeon RX 560 XT is a China-only product and is not expected to be made available in western markets.
