Meet the Radeon RX 5700 XT & Radeon RX 5700

The true stars of today's launch are, of course, the new Radeon cards themselves. For today’s launch AMD is going completely reference, and that goes for their partners as well. So what you’ll see here is what you’ll get, in terms of features, design, and performance.

    All FIXED--had to come back and correct the record. I used the "clean" install method from the 19.6.3's--and all is well so far with the 19.7.1's, I am delighted to say...;) Couldn't leave it hanging like that. I should have done that the first time, because it is a new driver set of greater size and feature support (for the 5700's)--yes, mea culpa! How many times is it the last thing I try that *works*? (utterly rhetorical)...Arrghghghg! Only thing out of the ordinary I saw were some funky desktop colors that vanished with the initial reboot after installation--running fine now!

    Drivers need, it would seem.

    Thanks. It is good enough for me as it is. Technical Details could be another article. But the Number of Performance, Price in Percentage does the job.

    Thank you for the good work Ryan and thank you for not awarding some ridiculous silver "award" to Radeon of your colleagues did with Ryzen 3000 :)

    So it's noted, I'm the one that suggested the Silver award. I'm as equally culpable for that as I am the lack of an award here.

    Fwiw both decisions were prudent if you ask me. Ryzen 3 changed the the entire direction CPU performance was taking - for over half a decade we had incremental improvements at best. Now the triplet price/performance/power is completely upended by the new generarion zen. While the new radeons are interesting they are nowhere near as market-moving...

    Does it have VP9 10 bit? I know Raven Ridge does. It's nice for YouTube hdr.

    Well, the Compute portion is still bare-bones. Do these cards just not run on the omitted applications?

    Why no 1660 TI included in this benchmark?
