Black friday deals are putting 4k monitors in many shopping baskets today
In terms of GPU and CPU, AMD has been one mile behind Intel and Nvidia as far as I can remember. However, due to some impressive arrivals in the AMD camp in July, this trend may change for the first time in more than a decade.
On July 7, AMD introduced a series of new hardware, including the 3rd generation Ryzen series and its NAVI RDNA GPU, one of which is the RX 5700 XT. The
AMD RX 5700 XT is highly anticipated by consumers because they heard whispers about its possible arrival a few months ago. It should be on the market at the same time as its powerful new Ryzen product line, and it is custom-designed for Nvidia's RTX 2070. However, due to the arrival of the Intel SUPER series (a series of GPUs that can provide additional performance at no additional cost), AMD had to re-adjust its target to 2060 SUPER.
Fortunately for AMD, the RX 5700 XT is still very affordable and offers many cool new features that AMD has never seen before. This gives consumers a headache when deciding whether to buy RX 5700XT or Nvidia RTX 2060 SUPER.
Let us take a look at the RX 5700XT and see how competitive it is in terms of price, performance, heat dissipation and features.
With this in mind, let's stop wasting time and just jump in.
From a design standpoint, the RX 5700XT offers some of the best aesthetics I've seen in a long time. It is equipped with a sleek design, made up of a dark gray (almost black) color theme, and the red LED flashing in the logo is more prominent.
Many people call it a "dent", which has caused some controversy among buyers, half like it and half hate it. Personally, I think it looks great; according to AMD, it offers more than aesthetic appeal. The dent should be a design feature of the cooling, allowing turbofans to be more efficient in tight spaces, such as SLI.
At this point, I have not fully accepted that theory, but I like this layout anyway. In general, the beauty of this GPU is difficult to change, and it looks elegant from all angles.
As mentioned above, AMD has introduced some very impressive features in the new NAVI GPU series, trying to give them an advantage over rival Nvidia. That being said, let us explore them in more detail and let you know what to expect from this outstanding GPU.
Now, although AMD has raised many questions about the 7nm manufacturing process used in the new RX 5700XT, this is not the first time we have seen this on one of their cards-RADEON VII has won the championship. However, this is the first time we have seen it used with the RDNA architecture. The combination of the two clearly shows that AMD has decided for the first time to use this manufacturing process to focus on gaming platforms. So what is the difference between the new architecture in terms of game performance?
Good question. When used with the RDNA architecture, the performance of the RX 5700XT is similar to that of the RADEON VII, but technically it is the weaker of the two cards (and much cheaper). AMD claims that the new architecture should provide an additional 25% performance improvement over cards with the same clock speed using the GCN architecture. good.
Talk Briefly About Heat Dissipation Problem AMD claims that the heat dissipation solution used in this card is better than the previous generation of blower-type graphics cards. That said, it's hard to back up these claims at this testing stage. The fan isn't the quietest thing in the world, but it's certainly not as loud as some next-gen cards released by AMD. I'm looking at you Vega.
Speaking of Vega, one of the biggest changes we saw when comparing Navi and Vega can be found in the new computing unit. RNDA CU is designed around a "workgroup processor". In theory, this means that it uses a couple of connected compute units to share resources in order to perform better in high-workload scenarios. While sharing resources, the RDNA compute unit at Navi still has more dedicated silicon than lastgen's GCN CU.
Each UC will also be equipped with an additional programming unit and an additional scalar unit. From a performance standpoint, this means that the Navi CU can double the instructional speed of the GPU, thus creating a more efficient computing unit dedicated to gaming.
Although Vega CU is more suitable for professional workload scenarios, the Navi architecture focuses more effectively on game performance. Good news for players around the world.
So we have learned about some of the features that this card is equipped with, now it's time to look at the level of performance in the game.
Before we start, it is necessary to understand the displayed clock speed and the expected value in the real world. So from the above specifications, it can be seen that this card is equipped with "basic clock", "accelerated clock" and "game clock", of which the accelerated clock is the most generous. In other words, when we tested the 5700XT, we rarely saw the clock speed reaching the height of the boost clock shown. Our results show that, on the other hand, the game clock is a more realistic number than we expected in the real world.
So please keep this in mind. In any case, the
clock speed is not affected. In most cases, the 5700XT is a very efficient GPU for 1440p gaming. That
