On Sunday, 7 July, AMD will release processors Ryzen 3000 and Radeon RX 5700-series. Along with these core resources will publish reviews of new products. However, the Polish resource Benchmark.pl accidentally published the results of tests of the new graphics cards before the appointed time, allowing to assess the new items we can now.
But first recall the characteristics of the new graphics cards of AMD company. Junior model of the Radeon RX 5700 built on a 7-nm graphic processor 10 Navi XL, which has a 2304 stream processors, 144 texture and 64 raster units. The base clock speed of the chip is 1465 MHz, and in Boost mode it raises to 1725 MHz. Also the graphics card is equipped with 8 GB memory, GDDR6 with a frequency of 1750 MHz and a total bandwidth of your system memory is 448 GB/s. cost of the graphics card Radeon 5700 RX will be $379.
In turn, Radeon RX XT 5700 received a more powerful version of the Navi processor 10 with the prefix “XT”, which features 2560 stream processors, 160 texture and 64 raster units. Frequency here is also significantly higher: a base equal to 1605 MHz, and in Boost mode it increases to 1905 MHz. The memory subsystem is the same: 8 GB GDDR6 with a frequency of 1750 MHz and bandwidth 448 GB/s. the Price of this card will be $449.
And as for the test results. In games Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Far Cry 5 older AMD Radeon RX XT 5700 was able to bypass his direct rival, the GeForce RTX 2070 Founders Edition. Only in Far Cry 5 at 1080p AMD fell behind by 1 FPS.
In turn, Radeon 5700 RX were able to get around in these games, not just the usual GeForce 2060 RTX, but RTX-and-improved GeForce 2060 Super.
But in the game II Wolfenstein The New Colossus the new AMD showed themselves much worse. Here both models are unable to even catch up with GeForce RTX 2060, remaining at the level of GeForce GTX 1070 Ti. This is due to using early versions of drivers, which, moreover, did not support overclocking.
In synthetic benchmarks there is a similar situation. In 3DMark Fire Strike Radeon RX and RX 5700 5700 XT outpaced the GeForce RTX RTX 2070 and 2060 respectively Super. In turn, 3DMark Time Spy both video cards were between the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and regular GeForce RTX 2060.
And in the end I would like to draw attention to a chart showing the level of energy consumption systems with new graphics cards. The measurements were performed in a PC Intel Core i9-99000K. In the end consumption of the system with 5700 Radeon RX XT 280 W, 1W lower consumption of the system with the GeForce RTX 2070 FE. In turn, Radeon 5700 RX system consumes as much as 570 Radeon RX – 247 W, slightly higher consumption GeForce RTX 2060 FE.
