AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 Unleashed – See Features, Specs, Price and Some Benchmarks

AMD recently announced their latest Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards at E3 2019. The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 are based on a 7nm process technology featuring AMD’s new RDNA gaming architecture. The RX 5700 XT features 40 compute units, 8GB of GDDR6 memory and up to 1905MHz of boost clock speed. Meanwhile, the Radeon RX 5700 features 36 compute units, also 8GB of GDDR6 memory and up to 1725MHz of boost clock speed. Both graphics cards are not AMD’s flagship GPU. The Radeon VII is still faster than both graphics cards and I’m guessing AMD still has something under their sleeve. The Radeon RX 5700 XT comes with an MSRP of $449, while the RX 5700 comes with an MSRP of $379. AMD also announced a Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition, offering a slightly faster performance compared to the RX 5700 XT. It comes with an MSRP of $499. The RX 5700 series graphics cards will also be available on July 7, same time the 3rd Gen Ryzen 3000 series CPUs and X570 motherboards are released in the market. Check out more of their features and specifications below.

AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT Announced

AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 Graphics Cards

Both the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 graphics cards are geared towards 1440p gaming. They don’t (natively) support real-time ray tracing, but AMD built these GPUs with new features that would enhance the gaming experience of a user. These new features are the following:

Ground-breaking RDNA gaming architecture – Built from the ground up for superior performance, scalability and power efficiency, RDNA was designed to power the future of PC, console, mobile and cloud-based gaming for years to come. It features a new compute unit design optimized for improved efficiency, and a multi-level cache hierarchy designed to provide reduced latency, higher bandwidth and lower power. It also includes a streamlined graphics pipeline that is optimized for performance-per-clock and high clock speeds. Delivering up to 1.25X higher performance-per-clock and up to 1.5X higher performance-per-watt compared to the previous-generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture, RDNA provides the computational horsepower to enable thrilling, immersive gaming by enhancing explosions, physics, lighting effects and more, and by delivering fluid, high-framerate gaming experiences.

AMD RX 5000 Series GPU Features

Radeon Image Sharpening (RIS) – Restores clarity to in-game images that have been softened by other post-process effects. RIS combines with GPU uspcaling to provide sharp visuals at fluid frame rates on very high-resolution displays, and works across DirectX® 9, 12 and Vulkan® titles.

AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT RIS Off On

FidelityFX – An open-source developer toolkit available in the coming weeks on GPUOpen that makes it easier for developers to create high-quality post-processing effects that make games look beautiful while offering a balance of visual fidelity and performance. FidelityFX features Contrast-Adaptive Sharpening (CAS) that draws out detail in low-contrast areas while minimizing artifacts caused by typical image sharpening routines. Developers plan to integrate CAS into a number of popular games, and Unity Technologies plans to integrate it into its real-time 3D development platform.

Radeon™ Anti-Lag – Optimized for eSports, Radeon™ Anti-Lag improves competitiveness by decreasing input-to-display response times by up to 31 percent4, delivering an experience similar to higher framerates.

Extreme refresh rates – RDNA enables DisplayPort™ 1.4 with Display Stream Compression (DSC) to deliver extreme refresh rates, color depth and resolutions up to 8K HDR at 60Hz or 4K HDR at 144+ Hz on cutting edge displays, including the world’s first monitor to support DSC: the new ASUS Republic of Gamers 43-inch monitor previewing at E3. The new monitor is capable of delivering 4K HDR at 144Hz with a single DisplayPort™ 1.4 cable.

Largest gaming display ecosystem – With over 700 supported monitors to choose from, gamers can enjoy stutter-free, tear-free gameplay with AMD Radeon FreeSync™ and Radeon FreeSync™ 2 HDR technology.
