AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT/RX 5700: A Step In The Right Direction

Specs Compare: Radeon RX 5700 XT vs RX 5700




There are some changes to the Navi 10 GPUs used on the higher-end Radeon RX 5700 XT and the normal RX 5700. The biggest of which are the 40 vs 36 compute units and 2560 vs 2304 stream processors that stand out, but the up to 1905MHz boost clock on the RX 5700 XT versus the up to 1725MHz on the RX 5700.




We have the same 8GB of GDDR6 on a 256-bit memory bus providing 448GB/sec memory bus, the same as NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER.



Both of the new Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards are PCIe 4.0 compatible, with the RX 5700 XT with a 225W total board power and the RX 5700 with 180W total board power. A good improvement over the 280-300W on the Radeon RX Vega 56 and 64 graphics cards.




AMD has a new way of measuring GPU clocks in something it calls Boost, Game, and Base clocks - with Game clock being the new one that is a clock target under typical gaming loads.




We have a new Radeon Display Engine capable of driving DisplayPort 1.4 HDR and HDMI 2.0b with 4K 240Hz, 4K 120Hz with HDR and 8K 60Hz with HDR support.




This is the monitor that dreams are made of, something you'll want to pair with a Radeon RX 5700 XT.
