5700 xt vs 2060 super

Now you know the situation, guys. Nvidia and AMD are in constant competition for the graphics edge. In 2019, they released what we think everyone considers a game changer: Radeon 5700XT and GeForce RTX 2060 Super.

Both GPUs have entered the world of high-end graphics market. Each GPU firmly grips both corners of your wallet to play a tug of war for your hard-earned money.

So, to help you determine which GPU is really worth your money, we placed these two beasts in the classic "vs" competition, comparing key design and performance factors, until we were crowned the best.

We will fill in the details of your story in these fierce battles between these discordant manufacturers. AMD may eventually take out Intel in the vicious CPU war, but it turns out its conflict with Nvidia is a bit difficult to quell. To be honest, as the years go by, it gets hotter and hotter.

It all started in 2000, when AMD first threw its hat into the ring in the form of the Radeon R100. Up until that point, Nvidia had been alone in the ring, without even realizing it, and she immediately stood up and accepted the challenge.

Twenty years later, we are well aware that this "healthy" market competition is the best thing that has happened in the history of infographics. Nvidia can no longer sit still, stagnation is the only way for AMD to lose a foothold in its already disadvantaged position. When we're here in 2021, Nvidia is still a graphics giant; AMD is a philanthropist giving you a higher price / performance ratio. The

RX 5700 XT uses AMD's proprietary RDNA 1 microarchitecture and 12nm Navi10 chip design. It has 2560 cores or execution units that run in vector mode. This means that a single calculation or operation is divided among several units.

Distributed across the RDNA architecture are 10.3 billion transistors, 2560 shader units, 160 texture units, and 64 render output units. In layman's terms, this means it's packed with everything that makes modern games so crazy. Hassle-free and enjoyable. It has a base clock speed of 1605MHz and a boost level of 1905MHz, which is much faster than Nvidia's clock speed, which means that XT will be able to write more pixels per second.

Nvidia used Turing's TU106410A2 variant to build their RTX 2060 Super. Its proprietary reproduction of the execution unit is called the CUDA kernel. The 2060 Super has a total of 2,176 CUDA cores, so on the surface it seems to perform poorly against the largest number of XT cores, but these core variants are fundamentally different in their processes. The CUDA kernel does not work in a vector mode, but a unit of scale. This means that separate calculations are handled by separate units.

This variant of the Turing architecture has 10.6 billion transistors (6 million more than XT), 2,176 shading units (slightly less than XT), 136 texture units (and less), and 64 rendering units (the same ). In terms of clock speed, you can expect a base of 1470MHz and an increase of 1650MHz.

Although the Nvidia card uses an outdoor design, it can sometimes get a little hot, but the 225-watt Radeon blower card does have the upper hand in terms of heat capacity. This thing can work perfectly at bonding temperatures up to 110°C. It sounds scary, and its shell may melt, but for these high temperatures, it meets the specifications 100%.

2060 is more conservative in terms of heat dissipation. The extreme temperature is 89°C and it operates at a very low 175 watts, which is far from the vulcanization performance of AMD cards. Super works well and is cool in most cases, so if for some reason, it may be extreme OC and you want to further increase its cooling coefficient, you may have set a custom water cycle. The overall size of the

full GPU varies from product to product, but as a stand-alone unit, the size is 4,435 inches (height) x 9 inches (length) x 2 slots (width). Nvidia's 2060 Super is the smallest of the two. Although very close. AMD’s 5700 XT is almost identical in height, only less than 2 inches taller, and the width of the two slots is the same.

At 1080p, these two GPUs go hand in hand. In games like "Overwatch" and "Grand Theft Auto", its average frame rate reached 138 and 110 fps. Some games have seen them take a hit. Nvidia cards claim an average 135 fps win rate in PUBG of 6%, while AMD cards have improved in other MMOs such as Fortnight, for example, with an average of 157 fps and an 18 win rate.

Let’s take a look at the 2060 Super’s 22% victory in CSGO at an average of 280 frames per second, but it can’t keep up with the 5700 XT’s victories in "The Witcher 3", "Apex Heroes" and "Battlefield V".

Pushing things into 1440p in some Ultra HD benchmark tests, the 5700 XT showed its metal, strangely winning all games except Fortnite. It even revoked control of 2060 Super on CSGO. "The Witcher 3" and "Strange Travel" saw the Nvidia card regain some dignity, but it couldn't catch up with XT.

At 4K resolution, the 5700 XT continues to maintain a winning streak, which is about 2% higher than the 2060 Super in 12 games. This is not on a grand scale, but victory is victory.

as RTX card,

It is provided by ray tracing technology. In fact, RDNA 1 cannot support it at all. If you want to be loyal to AMD and enjoy ray tracing, the newly released RDNA 2 GPU is your only option.

We hope that there will be some more interesting things in our memory round, but the truth is that these things have the same memory configuration. Due to their stacked chip architecture, they must all have GDDR6 buffers, each with the same 8GB capacity. The memory buffer is the translation unit that transfers messages to and from the CPU, so no matter which GPU you choose, the computing dialog will be smooth and fluid.

When you get a deeper understanding of your memory formats, the symmetry will continue to exist. They all have a 256-bit bus interface, 448 GBps bandwidth, and an overall maximum memory speed of 14 GBps.

There is nothing else for GPU So reflexively slow, in degrees these two industry giants are waging a war of attrition. In terms of performance, they are the two most similar units we've put head-to-head in the "vs" format, but in our opinion the 5700 is supreme. You don't always win by silly numbers, but you consistently win from game to game.

If you have never checked the prices of these GPUs, you will prefer AMD's high-end graphics cards. None of them can be considered cheap now, but you can expect to find a 5700 XT that is at least $70 lower than the 2060 Super. Considering some future proofs that XT has but Super does not have, this is crazy... because of PCIe 4 support. So the war is far from over, but this battle is for AMD!
