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 noise levels. The reference 5700 XT is great for beating benchmarks, but it is not so great for actually playing games with. Thousands of people purchased the reference card expecting flagship performance, instead they got a shopping trolley with a V8 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 (EFps) gaming metrics in due course. 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]

MORE DETAILS

AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 is a mid-range, first generation Navi 10 gaming GPU. Navi (aka Radeon DNA or RDNA) is built on a 7nm process and includes new anti-lag and image sharpening technology. The 5700 is a high performance 1440p card with 36 compute units (compared to 40 in the 5700 XT), a game frequency (comparable to Nvidia’s boost frequency) of 1.63 GHz (versus 1.76 GHz in the 5700 XT) and 8 GB of GDDR6 high-speed memory, delivering 448 GB/s of memory bandwidth. At $349 USD, the 5700 is more affordable than the $399 USD 5700 XT, its approximately 15% faster and more power hungry sister card (225 W for the 5700 XT, versus 180 W for the 5700). However, initial benchmarks suggest the 5700 offers comparable value for money. Not to be outplayed, Nvidia have swiftly responded by announcing new Super (refresh) versions of the RTX 2060, 2070 and 2080, for sale by the end of July 2019. Benchmarks and prices are necessary to confirm which graphics card offers the best bang for buck. What is certain is that there is a lot more choice in the upper end of the GPU market. [Jul '19 GPUPro]
