Average Bench: 105% (31st of 666)

Based on 363,665 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 731F Model: AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT

Out of the box the reference 5700 XT has high burst speeds but under load it overheats and therefore drops frames to the extent that it is more or less unusable for demanding games like PUBG. In order to settle the card it was under volted by 120 mV and the maximum clock was lowered to 1,980 MHz (the stock BIOS and 19.9.1 driver defaulted the card to 2,030 MHz). The fan curve also had to be turned up to around 50% power at 75 degrees (which is a lot noisier than stock). After making these changes the card delivered far more consistent performance albeit with a reduced top speed and unacceptable (hair dryer) levels of noise. There were also incompatibilities with GTAV: enabling reflection MSAA resulted in very poor, almost matt, reflection fidelity (the same bug appeared on several Navi and Vega cards). The reference 5700 XT is great for beating benchmarks, but it is not so great for playing games. Thousands of people purchased the reference card expecting flagship performance, instead they got a shopping trolley with a V6 engine. It appears that the same marketing tactics were employed for the reference Vega 56 and 64 series of graphics cards which we will purchase for our gaming lab and generate effective Fps gaming metrics as soon as possible (results here). AMD appear to have very short term marketing strategists at the helm, they seem more concerned with this years bonuses than the longevity of the brand. [Jul '19 GPUPro]

Works fine- until it doesn't. I have tried feverishly to fix the random green screen and black screen crashes- to no avail. The most I've been able to do is reduce the frequency of the crashes. I literally can not even play valorant because it crashes my computer after being in a game for one second. Like legitimately, one second.—Jan '21

Crashes constantly. Runs incredibly well at a good price point when it rarely decides to work

Second time and last time I buy AMD. Screen goes green and soon as you stress the card a bit, not doing insane thing, just playing Warhammer 2 on high setting with 300 units on screen was enough, or running any sort of benchmark. At least I got a refund but only due to cheer luck of buying it online with escrow.—Jul '21

The only problem with this card is some crashes which can be very frustrating at times, and its all cause AMD Drivers.

2070 super performance in some games

Nearly unbeatable in terms of price per performance. This GPU rivals Nvidia RTX 2070S while costing around several dollar or hundred dollar less, but you're going to need a bigger PSU to accommodate this power hungry GPU but the price per performance negate that disadvantage.

With the driver issues, just get a 2070S......

Good 1080 Ti/2070 Super alternative if you can find them for a decent price, will have 3GB less VRAM than the 1080 Ti, but will be supported for longer through drivers.

I have the XFX Thicc edition XT, and while it performs well, I had a DOA and needed to return and order another one. What ATI (XFX?) seem to lack is quality control. I used to have very dependable XFX cards from the 7700 -era which were still functioning last year, despite the many years of abuse I have put them through. My complaint is the size of this card is giant and it sags, but otherwise it's a monster and requires at least 700W PSU to stay on the safe side.

Best Mid GPU


2 years ago.

Lots of power, lots of issues. While the RX5700XT is probably unbeatable for sheer computing power per dollar right now, the horrible, ancient drivers make the cards unbearable to use. I was getting massive tearing when using FreeSync, and the display driver frequently crashed. The fan design isn't nearly as bad / noisy as it's sometimes made out to be tough.
