5700 xt vs 2070

The tension between Nvidia and AMD in the market makes it difficult for gamers to choose between competing units. Radeon 5700 XT and RTX 2070 perfectly illustrate this fight. So, to clear up these turbulent times, we'll put these GPUs under the microscope to see which one is the best for you.

Nvidia was the first to rush the scene with their 1999 GeForce 256 GPU. They've been improving their processes ever since, but if anyone has a product to challenge them, it's AMD.

Historically, AMD has weakened Nvidia by offering GPU cards at a slightly lower price, and it looks like they will continue this frugal move, which is good for us. This means that if you are looking for mid-market GPU options, choosing Radeon will give you value for money.

In terms of raw graphics processing power, Nvidia still tops the list, although AMD's latest achievement, Big Navi, keeps them on the alert. Another limitation of AMD is that they are more open when they roll out feature updates. They have always been designed to achieve the best performance on AMD hardware, but are fully compatible with Nvidia technology.

In all this, there is only one real winner... us. Both companies must continue to reinvent themselves in order to survive, and we benefit from it. Nvidia’s

RTX 2070 GPU is built from the ground up using its proprietary Turing micro-architecture. Its TU106 silicon build has 2304 CUDA cores, with a basic clock speed of 1620MHz and a frequency increase of 1815MHz. The computing power of the CUDA core in the Turing architecture is 7.5, which is really impressive, but the best thing about this Turing chip is the dedicated RT and Tensor cores.

We will discuss the RT kernel in more detail later, but the Tensor kernel can't wait! These things called DLSS 2.0 are artificial intelligence neural learning networks whose sole purpose is to provide important graphics. The

AMD, which has always determined to make a breakthrough, built the 5700 XT GPU with the first-generation proprietary RDNA micro-architecture. In the true AMD spirit, it is backward compatible with the previous GCN architecture. RDNA has 2560 cores, divided into two shader engines. The key feature of RDNA is called Wave32. It is a form of data flow similar to concurrent Turing processing. It supports more complex troubleshooting and sharing, ultimately improving performance and efficiency. The

Radeon card also has an AI-like mechanism, allowing everyone to sing and dance in the Turing architecture. However, technically speaking, it is not artificial intelligence. It is called machine learning, and it runs through SIMDS ALU, which increases the competition between images and videos. AMD’s

Radeon 5700 XT has excellent heat dissipation capabilities; we are talking about the melting heat of the graphics card. You can bring this GPU to a maximum temperature of 110 °C for impressive performance, plus less cooling requirements mean quieter gaming. But it is a blower card, so when you overclock it, it gets very hot. The

RTX 2070 is not as volcanic as the 5700 XT. We believe that some people will prefer it. It can only withstand operating temperatures between 70-80°C. RTX is a series of outdoor GPUs, which means they work well, but since they release excess heat into the case instead of completely dissipating it, it is best to ensure that the airflow in the case is optimized.

The decisive factor between the two GPUs can be simply boiled down to which one is smaller. Well, in the case of 4,435 inches (height) x 9 inches (length) x 2 slots (width), the size of the RTX 2070 is more moderate.

At 5.51 inches (height) x 11.69 inches (length) x 2 slots (width), the 5700 XT is not much larger than the Nvidia GPU, but depending on your current configuration, every inch may be a decisive factor.

For 1080p resolution, there is no doubt that RTX 2070 is the best GPU. It can beat Radeon cards in almost all types of games. Visually speaking, Two Weeks is not a particularly demanding game, but the extra fps is definitely welcome, even if this is a 1% victory for Nvidia and AMD. Both Overwatch and GTA5 won 4% for Nvidia, and PUBG pushed up the gap by 8%, but it was CSGO that really saw the RTX card winning by 14%.

When we turned things over and threw these two fighters onto the 1440p stage, it was the same old story. The Nvidia card claims that 12% W averages 104.9 fps, which exceeds the AMD card’s 92.5 fps. RTX 2070 continued its reign of terror in 4K, dropping the average fps to 63.6 fps, but won by a difference of 13%.

has not yet caught on. RT is a beautiful concept in theory and practice. I think more and more games will support it in the future. All Nvidia RTX cards have ray tracing, but unfortunately the Radeon 5700XT does not. If you are on the AMD team and want RT, you should jump to the Radeon GPU with RDNA 2 architecture, which can be any product from the 6000 XT series or higher.

We are happy to report that both GPUs have excellent 8GB GDDR6 memory configurations. We are on the verge of GDDR7, but GDDR6 is as good as it is currently.

As you know, there are other things to consider before making a decision. As mentioned above, AMD has a more consumer-friendly spirit, which in turn creates a strong and loyal community.
