AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT Review

The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT is a post-Nvidia Turing graphics card. AMD has improved its RDNA architecture to the point where it can compete with Nvidia’s formidable offerings. Not only does it compete with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070, but it also holds its own against the new Nvidia GeForce GTX 2060 Super. The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT is one of two new graphics cards aimed at dampening Nvidia’s long-standing dominance in the midrange market. It’s a little hotter than its Nvidia equivalents (the RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 Supers), and early overclocking results aren’t great. Apart from that, the card is a promising one, putting AMD in a stronger position than it has been in for years.

Features and Chipset:

The AMD Radeon RX 5700 is the first graphics card with a 7nm manufacturing process that is available to the general public. The new design should be able to deliver up to 1.25 times the performance of the old GCN, or Graphics Core Next, architecture at the same clock speed. The benefits of moving to 7nm in terms of power efficiency are added to this improvement in performance per clock.


It has a sleek design with a dark grey (nearly black) color scheme accented by the red LED flashes in the logo. The “dent,” as it’s been dubbed by many, has created some debate among consumers, with half of them loving it and the other half despising it.

Multiplayer Games:

Apex Legends is the newest and most thrilling battle royale game to hit the market. The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT struggled to play this game in 4K, but it was a formidable challenger at the more realistic 1440p and 1080p resolutions. For 144Hz displays, every resolution on the test cards here provides faster than 144fps, so you 1080p/240Hz gamers don’t have much to worry about.

Real-world Gaming:

At 77 frames per second, at 1440p, the AMD Radeon RX 5700 matches the GeForce RTX 2070 Superframe for a frame. In Rise of the Tomb Raider, it outperforms the RTX 2060 Super by a few frames. The game is well-optimized for the PC platform, but the higher visual quality settings make it quite demanding. Far Cry Primal and Far Cry 5 are both challenging games in their sense. In our World of Tanks Encore benchmark, the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT outperforms Nvidia’s top-end graphics card, the RTX 2070 Super. Hitman Absolution, Tomb Raider, and Bioshock: Infinite all run smoothly on older AMD and Nvidia graphics cards.


With this AMD graphics card, playing games like Metro Exodus and World War Z at 1440p is a breeze. When you dial up the resolution to 4K, the AMD Radeon RX 5700XT struggles a little, but it’s not meant for that type of task in the first place. The 5700XT outperforms the Vega 64 by roughly 20% while using 20% less power. Although it has 38% fewer compute units, it still gives 20% faster frame rates in-game. As a result, the RADEON VII is effectively obsolete. 


  • Reasonable.
  • great value for a mid-range video card.
  • 1440p gaming performance is excellent.
  • There are a lot of features that are geared toward the future.
  • Radeon Image Sharpening enhances the visual fidelity of games.


  • Cooler with a blower.
  • There is no ray tracing.
  • Overclocking our sample yielded only moderate early results.


AMD delivers its new graphics architecture, a suite of software enhancements, and enough speed for the money to keep 1440p gamers happy and competitive GeForce cards at bay with the Radeon RX 5700 XT.
