If you’re using an AMD RX 560 graphics card and it’s constantly underperforming, there might be something wrong with your graphics driver.
Driver is an essential piece of software that enables your devices to communicate with the operating system. That said, if your RX 560 driver is faulty or outdated, you will encounter various performance issues such as the driver not working or crashing. To avoid this, you should always keep your graphics driver up-to-date.
How to update your RX 560 driver
Here are two ways you can get the latest Radeon RX 560 driver. Simply choose the one that’s right for you.
Option 1 – Manually – You’ll need some computer skills and patience to update your driver this way because you need to find the exactly right driver online, download it and install it step by step.
Option 2 – Automatically (Recommended) – This is the quickest and easiest option. It’s all done with just a couple of mouse clicks – easy even if you’re a computer newbie.
Option 1 – Download and install the driver manually
If you’re technically savvy and familiar with computer hardware, you could directly search for the correct driver from the manufacturer’s website and install it on your own. Follow the steps below:
- Go to AMD’s support page.
- Select Graphics > Radeon 500 Series > Radeon RX 500 Series > Radeon RX 560. Then click Submit.
- Choose the correct operating system.
- Click the Download button next to the driver you’d like to download.
Restart your computer to employ the changes and see if the new RX 560 driver works properly. If you still have difficulties using the graphics card or if this process is too complex, you may prefer the easier method below.
Option 2 – Automatically update the RX 560 driver
If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your RX 560 driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.
Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.
You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks:
- Download and install Driver Easy.
- Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
- Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All). Or you could click Update next to the AMD Radeon RX 560 driver to do it for free, but it’s partly manual.
If you need assistance, please contact Driver Easy’s support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once done, restart the PC and your RX 560 driver should be good to go.
