Yesterday at their Next Horizon E3 event, AMD official released the specifications and performance details for their upcoming Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards. These new graphics cards feature AMD’s 7nm Navi GPU which features the RDNA core architecture that replaces AMD’s GCN architecture which was launched back in 2011. The Radeon RX 5700 series is also the first graphics card lineup to feature PCI-Express 4.0, which offers twice the bandwidth compared to PCI-Express 3.0.
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT Specifications
Starting with the Radeon RX 5700 XT, it has 40 compute units and AMD confirmed that their compute design still features 64 stream processors so you will have 2560 stream processors in total. The Navi GPU will also have 256 texture mapping units, and 64 raster operation units. The card will have a base clock of 1605 MHz, but has two additional clock speeds, a boost clock and a game clock. The boost clock is the maximum speed the reference card will hit, while the gaming clock is the average clock speeds while gaming. The boost clock is set at 1905 MHz and the game clock is 1755 MHz.
With the boost clock the card will have a maximum of 9.75 TFLOPS of single-precision Compute. The card will also feature 8GB of GDDR6 memory, which runs across a 256-bit wide interface. AMD will be making use of the latest 14 Gbps memory, which is the same as NVIDIA’s TU104 cards, which offer bandwidth up to 448 GB/s. The card has two 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors and a total board power (TBP) of 225W. The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT will have a retail price of $449.
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT Design
The Radeon RX 5700 XT will offer a more premium design compared to its little brother the RX 5700. The reference card will feature an aluminum alloy shroud and full-cover backplate. Cooling the GPU is an enhanced vapor chamber and blower-style fan. The base of the vapor chamber uses a graphite thermal interface material which is similar to the pads used on the Radeon VII. The card has a 7 phase digital power design, which AMD says is made for overclocking.
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT Performance
AMD directly compared the RX 5700 XT to NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2070 in a handful of titles at 1440p resolution. On average it was about 10% faster than the competition. AMD also compared it to their Radeon RX Vega 56 and those numbers were even more impressive.
AMD Radeon RX 5700 Specifications
AMD’s second card in the Radeon RX 5700 series is the RX 5700 (non-XT). This card has 2304 stream processors, 256 TMUs, and 64 ROPs. The clocks for base, game, and boost clock are 1465 MHz, 1625 MHz, and 1725 MHz respectively. At peak performance it will be able to deliver 7.95 TFLOPs of compute performance. The card features an 8+6 pin PCI-Express power connector and has a total board power of 180W. This card will have a retail price of $379.
AMD Radeon RX 5700 Performance
AMD put the Radeon RX 5700 against NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2060 ($349) in a handful of games at 1440p and again it beat the NVIDIA card in these tests by about 10%.
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition
AMD will also have a Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition. It features a black and gold shroud with clocks of 1680 MHz base clock, 1830 MHz game clock and boost clocks of up to 1980 MHz. This variant would deliver a total Compute power of 10.14 TFLOPs and should be around 5-10% faster than the Radeon RX 5700 XT. This variant will be available for a price of $499 US.
All three of these cards will be available on 7/7/19.
