from completed build AMD "GameCube" (Budget Ryzen 3 update)
Unlike the first revision (rev 1.0), this card does not use any power connectors whatsoever. Its power comes directly from the PCIe slot. That should result in marginally slower clocks (1176MHz), but I'm seeing core clocks at 1224MHz anyway, regardless of what monitoring software I use. Even AMD shows the core clock at 1224MHz, with AORUS showing its Gaming Mode clock at 1224MHz, Silent Mode at 1275MHz, and OC mode at 1300MHz. So far, I've been able to overclock to 1350MHz with -15% power target. Wonderful. It also helps to have 2 fans and a larger heat sink than other RX 560s. This card's temps never rose above 61 degrees Celsius when under load.
Do you like games like Gears of War and Forza Motorsport? Mid-High settings play just fine on this card. Performance is comparable to an Nvidia GTX 1050Ti for roughly 65-80% of the price. It's also pretty good with the Ryzen 3 2200G: a great budget gaming option to have.
