Somewhat unexpected, AMD finally announces the availability of its Radeon RX 560 video card. As was rumored before, this model is based on a full Polaris 11 GPU with 16 compute units, 16 ROPs, 64 texture units, 1024 stream processors, a 128-bit memory bus and 2GB or 4GB GDDR5 memory.
The Radeon RX 560 offers 2.6 teraflops of computing power and has a base clockspeed of up to 1175MHz, 1275MHz Boost and a memory clockspeed of 7000MHz.
It has a typical board power of 80W so it's a couple of Watts too much to be slot-powered. Display outputs of the reference model include DisplayPort and HDMI.
You can expect the RX 560 in retail stores for $99.
