AMD Announces Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 Graphics Cards and More at Next Horizon Gaming

Recommended Posts


At AMD's Next Horizon Gaming event, the company announced the highly anticipated Navi-based graphics cards, the RX 5700 XT and RX 5700. The RX 5700 XT will have 40 of RDNA's compute units, which have been redesigned to offer greater performance, offer 9.75 TFLOPs of compute power, a Base clock of 1605 MHz, a Boost clock of 1905 MHz, and a Game clock of 1755 MHz. Those are the same specs leaked by VideoCardz, and Game Clock was explained as the average clock speed you can expect in games. Other information provided was that the shroud and back plate for the card is made of aluminum and it uses a vapor chamber for cooling. For power delivery it uses an 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe connection and a 7-phase digital power system. The RX 5700 will have 36 CUs, offering 7.95 TFLOPs, a Base clock of 1465 MHz, Boost clock of 1725 MHz, and a Game clock of 1625 MHz. The performance demonstrations and graphs showed the RX 5700 XT beating the RTX 2070 and the RX 5700 outperforming the RTX 2060.

Of course the big question is what the prices and availability will be for these graphics cards. The RX 5700 XT will be priced at $449 and the RX 5700 at $379, both launching on July 7, alongside the Ryzen 3000 series CPUs. Purchasing one of these GPUs or a select Ryzen CPU will get you three months of Xbox Game Pass for PC.

AMD showed off a bit more than just these two cards, such as new tools and features developers and gamers will get to use. FidelityFX is an open source image quality toolkit that will be released on GPUOpen and with its collection of high quality post-processes, developers will be able to use it to bring out the details in their games. While it will need some amount of development to be enabled in games, Radeon Image Sharpening will bring some of the same image improvements to games without FidelityFX, and the performance hit should be very small, on the order of 2% based on the graph shown. FidelityFX will take advantage of some of features in Radeon graphics cards, such as Rapid Packed Math, which was introduced with the RX Vega GPUs though it was not clear if non-Navi GPUs will supported FidelityFX, completely or partially. Radeon Anti-Lag was also revealed as a means to reduce input lag, cutting the time between you clicking a button and the result appearing on screen by as much as a third.

At the end of the event two more products were shown off. One was the 50th Anniversary Edition of the RX 5700 XT with a special shroud and increased clocks: 1680 MHz Base clock, 1830 MHz Game clock, and 1980 MHz Boost clock. It will be available at AMD's website for $499. The other product was the much anticipated Ryzen 9 3950X, the 16 core/32 thread CPU for the AM4 platform. It will have a base clock of 3.5 GHz, a boost of 4.7 GHz, 72 MB of cache, and all within a 105 W TDP. It will launch in September at a price of $749.
