The AMD RX 560 XT has arrived in China and we are not sure whether this card is going to be exclusive to the Chinese market or if it is going to release for other markets as well. Having that said, the graphics card comes with 1792 cores which are double compared to the regular AMD RX 560 XT.
We already have the AMD RX 560, RX 570, RX 580 and RX 590. We also got an AMD RX 470D a while back and it is safe to say that things are getting a bit confusing when it comes to cards that are based on Polaris. It is unlikely that the AMD RX 560 XT is based on Polaris 11 or 21. If I was to venture a guess I would say that the card is based on a higher-end version of the architecture. Polaris 20 or 10 is more likely.
The AMD RX 560 XT also features 12 Texture Units and 32 ROPs and comes with 4 GB of GDDR5 VRAM which runs across a 256-bit bus at 6600 MHz effective clock speed. Doubling the cores does improve performance but it is still not on par with the AMD RX 570. So this card comes between the regular AMD RX 560 and the RX 570. You can check out the benchmarks below:
From the benchmarks, we can see that the graphics card is able to run modern games at 1080p 60 FPS. This could be a response to the upcoming Nvidia GTX 1660 and 1650 graphics cards that are going to come out soon but we also know that AMD Navi cards are going to release later this year. Keeping that in mind it is possible that AMD is trying to clear out inventory in order to make room for the new cards that are going to be shipped later this year.
Let us know what you think about the AMD RX 560 XT and whether or not this is something that you might be interested in getting for yourself.
