The ASUS Radeon RX 5700 XT STRIX OC is a huge improvement over the AMD reference design. It comes with an excellent cooler that reduces temperatures and noise levels at the same time, matching NVIDIA's offerings. Idle-fan-stop is included, too, and the factory overclock nets additional performance.

For $500 you can buy a 2070 SUPER.
OCUK have it at pre order at £499 at the moment. Not sure if the price is placeholder or not but it is more expensive than a FE RTX2070 at £475.

wow, this custom design 5700xt is so close to the RTX 2070super, its essentially tied with it in overall performance.
This is why I think AMD will take performance crown in [CES/Computex?] 2020 before Nvidia will release the 7nm parts, even if it will be only for a short time.

tbh i am not that impressed.
specially if the price ends up adding 50$ or more to the price of the card.
i will wait for beefier Navi card.these were supposed to be RX 600 series and they were supposed to be cheaper.
thank you for the review.

rx5700st strix is 5.2% faster than 5700xt +0,7% oc= 105.9% (1440p)
2070 super FE is 11,4% faster than 5700xt stock so 6,6% faster than 5700xt strix asus oc (1440p)
2070 Gaming X trio is 3% faster than 2070 fe + does 6% oc, so 15% faster than 5700xt strix oc. (1440p)
2070 trio is 10 degrees cooler and 8db quieter at stock or 15 degrees cooler and 4db quieter if 5700xt is on quiet bios.
both card draw around 230w in gaming load and similarly in idle,but 5700xt draws 26w more in multi monitor mode which probably means no fan stop when 2 or more monitors are connected.

looks like the card from asus is a dud at 500 quid,waiting for sapphire to deliver better acoustics and thermals.

Considering its their Strix brand with 3 fans, I expect this to be prices $50 more, especially initially when demand is high, so basically a reference 5700xt is still the better option at $400. Hopefully more AIB custom models end up being only $20 more.

the card achieves a 5% performance improvement over the AMD reference design, which is quite solid
I feel so old when it looks like I'm the only one remembering when overclocking was done to gain 20-30% more MHz, thus enabling a $200 part to run as fast as a $500 part. 5% more performance for 10% more $$$ was something you wouldn't even look at back then (unless budget was not an issue).

What´s the point of Asus sending cards for review and not reveal the price?

Price is a key aspect when analyzing a product.

Maybe its something they are still not 100% sure about? especially regarding competition in this space from other AIBs. I really hope this card is sub 450$. There's the STRIX experience of having a card, but there's only so much you can ask from a model before you go into the territory of a faster one

When you write Ray tracing andantages for RTX cards then why not run games like Battelfield, Tumb Raider and Metro in DXR mode for RTX card and non DXR mode for those RX and GTX card??

Well, it does say "Asus" on the box, doesn't it? ;)

For some reason nearly all the vendors are extremely slow at providing price info, I wish I knew why.. I agree with you 100%, pricing is the most important aspect

Seems to be pushed hard to be competitive, certainly not an overclocker's dream.... eek.

Founders Edition RTX 2070 Super is 6% faster at 1440p than this custom 5700 XT and 2070 Super custom cards are 5% faster than founders edition, so no. Considering the terrible oc headroom (0.7% perf gained) I'd think even 2060 Super custom would beat this card when overclocked. Custom 2060 Super cards are on par with 2070 non-super out of the box, and still has ~10% oc headroom left.

Why not test AMD on Ultra and Nvidia on Low?

I recommend to check more test sites for the RX 5700 XT's performance. They are much closer to the 2070S compared to the original TPU review. Techspot f. e. only measured 2% difference between the ref RX 5700XT and ref 2070S.


And it also features a dozen games, not just 3-4. I love TPU and I start reading reviews here (and Guru3D) then go to Techspot, but I'm not really convinced of the newly selected games for the reviews. For example we have Ace Combat 7, which is a non-mainstream game and the performance of AMD cards there is pathetic (RX5700 is 10% behind a 1660Ti, WTF), while a more mainstream racing game, Forza is not included in the test (where AMD cards lead NV counterparts by nearly the same percentage as in AC7). I also don't really get why Darksiders 3 or Divinity Original Sin 2 is included.

Maybe its something they are still not 100% sure about? especially regarding competition in this space from other AIBs. I really hope this card is sub 450$.

Nope. This card is 500 pounds at OCUK, the SAME as the Strix 2060S.

Yeah 2% or 9%, add 6% OC potential to that, 2070S still 10% faster.

$90 more than the ref for the cooler and the custom PCB same idea as the 2070S StriX oc also reviewed by TPU, and makes direct comparision possible, $490 looks realistic pricewise. But I wouldn't pay more than $299 for 256 bit card with 251 sq.mm chip. There is so much potential for a price drop that it will hurt me if it happends. The price is not the problem, the price drop too soon is the problem. And we have 6nm incoming, with 18% better density and clocks next year. The 212 sq.mm shrink costing less than $249 and clocked 18% higher will hurt alot.

Anand measured 5%: https://www.anandtech.com/show/14618/the-amd-radeon-rx-5700-xt-rx-5700-review/16
Only, this isn't about performance alone. If you get the 2070S, you get to play with RTX/DXR. If you get the 5700XT, you don't ;)
