The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT is based on AMD's all-new Navi 10 GPU featuring the RDNA architecture. We thoroughly test the card's gaming performance and look at power, heat, noise, overclocking, and clock frequency stability, too, sometimes with surprising results.

92'c? wow.so much for 7nm , when you go lower nm , You will get more hard cap.I don't expect 5 nm or 3 nm to give miracle.

It's so bad for a new arcitecture, perf per watt is still lower than gtx 10x0 (7nm vs 16nm). Pretty close to vega vii. Let me hope that navi isn't full rdna.

That's more because of crappy blower cooler these thing have(what ever amd's marketing team is saying about them). Power consumption is not much different from nvidia, slap RTX like cooler on it and those temps will go down. So yeah I would say good cards, but really need AIB custom models to really be an real option against rtx cards.

Well RX 5700 equals Turings on Perf/W so it's more like XT is running with more free TDP settings.

Only RX 5700XT, RX 5700 is close to RTX 2070 super and surpassed all Pascal series cards

We repeatedly see threads of people that want to upgrade, but don’t want RTX. Many of them say they can go and get a 1080Ti and have the upgrade performance they want. Trouble is, unless you have one already, that mythical used beast is expensive.

For much less money I would advise them to get a 5700XT. It trades blows back and forth with 1080Ti, even at 2560x1440.

Whats worse is it manage to run louder than Vega 56 while being hotter.

1. Unreal Engine should be renamed to GeForce Engine.
2. Overall better results than i expected.
3. Custom cards!

@ any AMDer reading, you need to step up your reference card design game. Temps, noise, clocks fluctuation. Get rid of that blower once and for all!

Something is seriously wrong with this first batch of cards if there is such huge difference in temps 68 vs 92.
Especially on blower cards that are less affected by case temps, and many of these test are done in open air test bench anyway.

Overall, things look pretty good. Perhaps some driver updates will get the temp and power usage back into line a little. Really looking forward to the custom board reviews, though

I was expecting the RX5700 to be a better choice, but it's not faster by around 10% than the 2060, so giving $50 more for the RX5700 XT is a rational move.

Man, it consumes 25W more than the 2070... :D 25W. :D Yes, less nm, and? You buy GPUs according to die size? And there is the undervolt. Yu I'm pretty sure it will consume less than the RTX2070. And don't forget, it's $100 less than the 2070-2070S.

A 5% lead over the competing green cards is somewhat underwhelming, even before taking thermals and noise into account. At this price point I'm inclined to remain in the Nvidia camp for now.

I'll wait for price adjustment to $349 and buy AIB version then. God damn it AMD can't you deliver good drivers and decent cooling solution at release? 92 (110)C temp and 43 dBA on $400 GPU, c'mon AMD are you serious? So little added effort is needed for this GPU to get praising reviews instead of mediocre ones.

Yeah right, everyone was expecting a 5% deficit at least. That it has a 5% lead is a massive turn up for the books.

Custom cards will be the way to go.
