Rumours regarding AMD’s plans to debut an RX 560D graphics card turned out to be true after all. XFX has apparently launched what may just be the world’s first RX 560D graphics card. For those who are not aware: the RX 560D is a graphics card made specifically to cater for digital currency miners.
According to VideoCardz, the XFX RX 560D graphics card will be based off of a cut-down AMD Polaris 21 GPU (formerly known as Polaris 11). In addition, this graphics card will feature a stream processor count of 896; a core clock speed of 1196MHz; memory clock speed of 7GHz. Besides that, the XFX 560D also has a memory capacity of 4GB.
Unlike most mining-centric graphics cards, the XFX 560D comes equipped with video output ports as well. These include one each of HDMI, DisplayPort, and DVI ports. Those aside, when it comes to design, the XFX RX 560D features a matte black cooler shroud that houses two red open-air cooling fans. Judging from its photos, it looks like this graphics card will draw power using a six-pin power connector.
Unfortunately, it seems very likely that the XFX RX 560D graphics card will only be made available in China. That said, given the current state of cryptocurrency mining, it’s unlikely that consumers in Malaysia will want to buy this graphics card anyway.
