AMD’s New Radeon RX 5700 XT GPU Priced At $449

It’ll be going up against NVIDIA’s RTX 2070

AMD has finally dropped more details about its upcoming RX 5700 XT graphics card during E3, including pricing. The new cards are based on AMD’s new 7-nanometer Navi GPUs and are part of the company’s new RDNA family.

There will be two versions of the RX 5700: $449 (Php 23.3K) Radeon RX 5700 XT, which will take on NVIDIA’s RTX 2070, and the $379 (Php 19.7K) RX 5700, which competes with the NVIDIA RTX 2060. The RX 5700 XT is obviously more powerful, with 40 compute units, boost speeds upwards of 1.9GHz, and up to 9.75 teraflops. Using World War Z as a benchmark, the Radeon RX 5700 XT managed to run 116 fps compared to the 102 FPS of a similarly-equipped gaming rig with an RTX 2070.

The RX 5700 meanwhile sports 36 compute units, has boost speeds of up to 1.725Ghz and up to 7.95 teraflops. AMD’s own benchmark showed that the RX 5700 was able to run Apex Legends at 88 FPS, while a similarly equipped gaming rig with an RTX 2060 managed an average frame rate of 72 FPS.

It’s clear that AMD is targeting the mid-range gaming market with these two cards, with their top-end mainstay still being the Radeon VII. The new cards will be dropping on July 7, 2019.
