AMD has just introduced two series of their latest graphics chip (GPU) products, the Radeon RX 5700 and Radeon RX 5700 XT.
The two new graphics cards were announced at the AMD Next Horizon Gaming event at the annual event of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2019 which was held in Los Angeles, California, USA.
Quoting TechRadar, AMD presents two graphics cards with the aim of competing with new products made by Nvidia, the GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2070.
Radeon RX 5700 XT
In terms of specifications, the Radeon RX 5700 XT has a higher performance than the regular version of the RX 5700. The Radeon RX 5700 XT has 40 compute units and 2,560 stream processors. The maximum clock speed is set at 1,905MHz.
AMD also pinned 8GB of GDDR6 RAM with memory bandwidth capacity of up to 14Gbps, along with 64 rendering output units (ROPs) and 256 texture units.
Radeon RX 5700
Meanwhile, the regular version of the Radeon RX 5700 graphics card has more or less the same specifications as the ‘brother’. It’s just that the Radeon RX 5700 has a slightly lower specification, only equipped with 36 compute units and 2,304 stream processors and a maximum clock speed of 1,725MHz.
Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT Performance
For performance, AMD claims the Radeon RX 5700 XT can play the game ‘World War Z’ 10 percent faster than its competitors, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070.
While the AMD Radeon RX 5700 is better to run the ‘Apex Legends’ game than its competitors, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060.
However, unlike the newer Nvidia graphics cards, the AMD Radeon RX 5700 and Radeon RX 5700 XT are not equipped with the latest lighting technology, i.e ray-tracing.
Price and Availability
For the price, AMD sets the Radeon RX 5700 at US $379 or around N136k naira and the Radeon RX 5700 XT with a tag of US $449 or around N161k naira in Nigeria.
The latest two graphics cards from AMD are planned to go on sale on the market on July 7.
