AMD quietly downgraded some Radeon RX 560 graphics cards

From PC Gamer: Customers who buy a Radeon RX 560 graphics card may get a bit less than they bargained for. That's because some cards are now shipping with fewer compute units and stream processors than originally advertised when AMD launched the Radeon RX 560 in April.

When the Radeon RX 560 first came out, AMD listed the card as having 16 compute units and 1,024 stream processors. Then several months later, AMD launched a cut down Radeon RX 560D SKU in Asia with 14 compute units and 896 stream processors. It was easy to spot the difference because of the slightly different model names, but now some regular Radeon RX 560 cards are shipping with downgraded specs. was first to spot the change, noting that several Radeon RX 560 cards in the marketplace are now shipping with only 896 stream processors. It's not clear when exactly that started happening.
