The RX 560’s advantage over Radeon RX 460 grows to just over 7% in our 80-second Battlefield 1 test sequence. That’s enough of a boost to put AMD ahead of GeForce GTX 1050…technically. In reality, the competing cards are nearly indistinguishable in a look at frame rate over time.

Clearly, AMD’s Radeon RX 570 has plenty of room to breathe at these settings. You’d be fine enabling Battlefield’s High quality preset. But whereas Radeon RX 560 starts in the $120 to $130 (£100-£120) range, the RX 570 sells for roughly $260 and quickly gets more expensive from there. We’re a long way from the sub-$200 (£180) prices AMD started with. As a result, our Best Graphics recommendations hit GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and 1060 6GB, and skip right over the top Polaris options.

Radeon RX 550 struggles under Battlefield’s Medium preset, making the RX 560 a practical floor for 1920x1080.
