  1. Hi guys,
    I recently bought an AMD sapphire radeon rx 560 pulse 4 gb overclocked
    At first I thought it was 024 stream processors version as I dont know about 896 version do exist among rx 560 family.
    but when I used gpu - z it showed me 896 stream processors and oem name as AMD BAFFIN (RX 460).

    Does this mean I got an rx 460 in the name of rx 560?
    if so can I unlock the remaing compute units to 1024 stream processors as other rx 460's are done?
    please help me with this problem guys.,please help me

    If goods were not as advertised, you may wish to look into whether they are "counterfeit".
    Major vendor businesses (Amazon, eBay, NewEgg, etc) all have policies and you may wish to look into that.

    May explain variant in the market, but not how OP apparently purchased the 1024 stream processor version and received the 896 - or is that called 'bait and switch'?


    Further investigation indicates that Sapphire is confused about its product line. There is a specification for a 896 version, with only 2GB VRAM - see far right column http://www.sapphiretech.com/productdetial.asp?pid=76B1DA6D-2B50-4BAF-BDC6-4B5B869BF277&lang=eng - but if you click on it, it connects to an information page which says 1024.

    @ferrarif5, I would go back over your invoice to see if you actually got what you bought.
