In brief: eSports and low horsepower GPU games @ 1080p, 75W TDP, but OEM stock OC'ed cards may use more at stress loads. HDMI 2.0b and Display Port 1.4(ready), DVI no longer includes analog VGA signals. Dimensions stated as: a" x b" x c" are from mfgr websites - others are from reviews. Slots slightly below GTX 1050. Note - some are 2GB and some are 4GB.

The RX 560 is mostly comparable to the GTX 1050 in temperature and performance, but it's slightly cheaper and slightly weaker. For a little bit more money, it's a more capable version of the RX 550, though it does use 25 more watts. As I stated with the GTX 1050, it's graphical capabilities comparable to the Playstation 4's performance. It will provide 60+ frames per second gaming for low to mid budget games and ~30 frames per second for larger titles. It will definitely handle light video editing but not professional video editing. It will be a relevant budget card for the remainder of this decade.
