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.

    Many thanks, Ryan, to you and the team for all the hard work. We do appreciate it.

    Hoping for really competitive results in the mid-range for compute, that AMD doesn't have drivers that support the new architecture is absurd. To not even run on some older computer work means this was clearly not ready for prime time. Shame on you, Lisa.

    I write this, very disappointed that the choice of a mid range GPU right now isn't much more difficult.

    ...older COMPUTE work...<sigh>

    Holy crap.. I wasn't actually expecting Amd to come close to Nvidia with these. (Regardless of the hype by Amd) The 5700XT is just a smidge slower than the 2070S.. and it's quite a impressive jump over the RX580/90s they replace.

    My whining about compute aside, you're right. The 5700XT competes very well against the 2070S - better than I hoped for.

    Yeah. AMD's showing is strong enough I'm wondering if we'll see farther NVidia price cuts in the near future.

    They are indeed impressive agains nVidia's Super cards but by pricing they're more of a Vega 56/64 replacement.

    I was considering it from a new norm on video card pricing as to me their upper mid range and don't appear to compete with Vega multipurpose cards to replace them.

    Looks like that completely outsized Particle Physics subscore was real, from multiple results coming in. Interesting. Given AMD seems to be going for a hybrid RT approach for RDNA 2.0 in 2020, I wonder if this was a half step towards building out this portion of the chip for it.

    Under OpenCL, it beats a 2080TI under CUDA, in that one subtest.

    Can someone explain to me why Navi requires twice the number of transistors (10.3B) compared to Polaris (5.7B) for the same number of CU's ?
