At the E3 2019, AMD launches their most anticipated 7nm Navi GPUs, the Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT starting at $379
Finally, at E3 2019, AMD breaks the deadlock and introduces the gamers with next-generation GPUs. Yes, the 7nm based Navi GPUs are now out and will be available from 7th of July 2019.
Navi GPUs are based on AMD’s new RDNA architecture that leverages new graphical features and enhances the overall graphics performance.
This architecture delivers 1.25x the performance per clock and 1.5x performance-per-watt than previous GCN architecture based GPUs.
Basically, this theory was laid by AMD at the COMPUTEX 2019. But today at E3, they have actually announced the two members of this new GPU family – the Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT.
Radeon RX 5700 XT – the RTX 2070 killer
This new 7nm based GPU is the direct competitor to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 and it is priced lower than it, at just $449.
It has 9.75 TFLOPs of raw computing power, 8GB of GDDR6 memory, 40 compute units along with 2560 stream processors.
It has a 1605MHz base clock speed, boost clock up to 1905MHz. Also, there’s a special gaming clock speed of 1755MHz.
When the GPU is tested out on modern triple-A gaming titles against the RTX 2070, the RX 5700 XT nearly beats its competitor in every game while testing out at 1440p ultra settings.
Radeon RX 5700 – the RTX 2060 killer
Another family member to this GPU lineup is the RX 5700 which is also based on 7nm based RDNA architecture. This is a slightly downgraded version of RX 5700 XT and is priced at $379, it will go head to head against the likes of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060.
This RX 5700 features 7.95 TFLOPs of raw computing power, 8GB of GDDR6 memory, 36 compute units along with 2304 stream processors.
It has a 1465MHz base clock speed, boost clock up to 1725MHz. Also, there’s a special gaming clock speed of 1625MHz.
When this GPU was put into a test against the RTX 2060 in popular esports title – Apex Legend, it fairly beat its competitor by a healthy margin.
Also comparing the performance in all triple-A gaming titles at 1440p Ultra settings resulted in the RX 5700 as the clear winner.
These new GPUs have been designed very carefully and the low power consumption along with proper optimizations will help deliver superior performance.
Also, these cards will support PCIe 4.0, currently supported only on X570 motherboards coupled with Ryzen 3000 processors. Both these cards will go on sale from July 7th onwards.
