Amd rx 5700 xt

Although many people may think that AMD cards are not supported or cannot handle ray tracing, this is not the case. As we can see from Crytek's Neon Noir demo, the AMD graphics card is very capable of ray tracing rendering, in fact it is very good at it too! The

Neon Noir benchmark is free software that allows you to see how your system compares to other systems in terms of ray tracing technology. Neon Noir is based on a ray tracing demo of the same name seen during GDC 2019.

Although it can be used for any hardware setup, there are some recommended minimum specs to keep in mind.

If you want to find more information about the Neon Noir benchmark, you can find a very detailed article on their website that describes it in more detail.

As you might have guessed, Nvidia performed well. With the RTX 2080Ti at the top of the list, the RTX 2080 SUPER and RTX 2070 SUPER followed closely. The main surprise came from the fact that AMD’s RX5700 XT was significantly better than the GTX 1080 in 1080p tests and benchmarks, at 1440p at ultra settings .

These test data come from Wccftech, which uses a variety of different GPUs to run a series of benchmark tests. Specific to AMD RX5700 XT and GTX 1080, the RX 5700 XT reached an average of 49FPS when running at 1440p, and the 99th percentile was 28FPS. In comparison, the Nvidia GTX 1080 averages 41FPS when running at 1440p, and the 99th percentile is 28FPS.

This shows that AMD is not as backward as people think in terms of ray tracing. They still have some time to play, because Crytek's "grid-based" ray tracing may not become part of Cryengine until 2020 at the earliest, and we may see further improvements from AMD before then.

If you want to see how well your system compares, you can download Neon Noir for free from Crytek's marketplace.
