The Radeon RX 560 896SP is a graphics card by AMD, launched in July 2017. Built on the 14 nm process, and based on the Polaris 21 graphics processor, in its Polaris 21 XL variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The Polaris 21 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 123 mm² and 3,000 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked Radeon RX 560X, which uses the same GPU but has all 1024 shaders enabled, AMD has disabled some shading units on the Radeon RX 560 896SP to reach the product's target shader count. It features 896 shading units, 56 texture mapping units and 16 ROPs. AMD has placed 4,096 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 1090 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1175 MHz, memory is running at 1750 MHz.
Being a dual-slot card, the AMD Radeon RX 560 896SP does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 45 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort. Radeon RX 560 896SP is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x8 interface. The card measures 170 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution.
