It looks like AMD has another graphics card up its sleeve. According to recent rumours, AMD is apparently working on a new graphics card called the Radeon RX 560D; which, of course, is targeted at the low end market.
It’s said that this graphics card will feature 896 stream processors and will consume about 50% less power compared to the original Radeon RX 560. If true, then this graphics card may just be very attractive to cryptocurrency miners.
Speaking of which, the RX 560D may indeed be graphics card that’s made primarily to cater for digital currency mining instead of gaming. According to folks at VideoCardz, the Radeon RX 560D is basically just a rebrand of the RX 460 – via a BIOS update. That aside, it seems very likely that the RX 560D will only be made available in China. That said, we’ll have to wait for an official announcement by AMD to know for sure.
Unfortunately, aside from rumours of several key details of the graphics card, not much else was said about the Radeon RX 560D. Despite this, being a low-end graphics card, we do expect this graphics card to relatively affordable. Regardless, as with any other graphics card rumours, we do advise our dear readers to take this one with a pinch of salt.
