The RX 560 Aero ITX yields superb performance. It is a fact that, until not too long ago, playing on computers mounted on HTPC boxes used to be an arduous task, especially if you wanted to use a box for ITX mini motherboards, where space is not especially great for the installation of Most-used size cards for desktop boxes.
However, for some time now most manufacturers have put some batteries in this regard and have begun to take new models aimed at this segment of users. I think we can all remember the famous Geforce GTX 970 or the same Radeon Fury Nano. And to this list of illustrious graphics solutions for a format that is quite in vogue among users is now joining the new MSI Radeon RX 560 Aero ITX, wanting to steal the post to those that are now on the market.
The MSI card is the first model of this manufacturer that employs the Polaris 21 graphic core, as evolution of the current Polaris 11 that we already know to be installed in the current Radeon RX 460, but to which they have been unlocked all available graphic cores In the old Polaris 11 up to 1024 SMs, which we assume will result in a generous increase in performance compared to the 896 SMs that had the original model.
This model of MSI does carry a slight overclock in its cores, that have frequencies of 1,196 MHz of base and 1,320 MHz with the activated boost. However, memory is maintained in the stock specifications with 7 GHz. And speaking of memory, there will be two versions that go on sale of this graph: one with 4 GB and another with 2 GB of GDDR5 each.
The video outputs are quite basic but, in turn, functional. In this model we can find both a DVI-D port, an HDMI 2.0 and a DisplayPort 1.4, which basically covers all the video inputs of any monitor that is currently on the market (but if you use D-Sub 15 input You will need to buy an active adapter for it to work).
