At the back, we have this massive backplate that has a very interesting design exposing the chip. Alongside the blower type fan, we also have at the rear end the exhaust with another Radeon logo.
In terms of ports, we have three DisplayPort 1. We can also see here the slots for ventilation. Overall, the design of this card is very refreshing compared to previous reference cards from AMD, it does have the usual design language while having a little bit of modern touch.
Another important feature here is the new RDNA architecture taking advantage of the latest 7nm manufacturing process. The new RDNA architecture looks to focus more on gaming-related tasks rather than other aspects such as artificial intelligence and whatnot. It also focuses more on improving the gap between performance to power consumption thanks to the new efficient 7nm manufacturing process which is very refreshing to hear for an AMD card, we all know how infamous they are for being power-hungry.
This new technology also features support for PCI Express 4. The XT also features technologies such as image sharpening which combines contrast-adaptive sharpening with GPU upscaling to enhance the image quality in terms of edge sharpness.
We also have the Radeon Anti-Lag which helps in reducing input lag for an overall better gaming experience. The results are very interesting and should be taken into consideration if you have the same processor as mine and planning on getting this card. All gaming benchmarks are an average of 3 identical runs with the same ambient temperature, I also made sure the settings are the same for each run. So for APEX legends which is one of the most popular battle royale game right now, at p resolution, the XT is way ahead of my Zotac with an average of Bumping the resolution to p, the XT still performs well at an average framerate of Changing the resolution to p, the XT still performed well for the most part with an average of The next two games I believe are high CPU intensive games or games that highly utilize the CPU for background computations and whatnot.
It got an average FPS of Bumping the resolution to p helped a bit and lowered the gap compared to my Zotac but still performed lower than I was expecting. The FPS is still high for this game at an average of Turning up the resolution to p again helped close the gap a little bit but the XT paired with an AMD Ryzen 5 x still underperformed at We should be expecting well over FPS for this particular game. By the way, huge shout out to Bossmac of Back2Gaming.
I researched about the games that are CPU intensive and it was very interesting.
If you think otherwise about these results and testing, feel free to comment down below as I am very open to learning even further. In superposition, at p High settings, the XT scored about points while getting around points at p extreme.
You can also check the individual FPS on this chart. In 3DMark Firestrike Ultra, which also bumps the resolution to 4k, and the test I used for power draw and thermals which I will show you in a bit, the XT scored a total of with a GPU score of One of the things we know about previous AMD cards is that they are known to be power-hungry and gets a little toasty.
For the XT, with the new 7nm manufacturing process, the maximum it got while running 3D Mark Firestrike ultra is 86 degrees which I think is pretty decent, the average temperature is also only around To be honest, while gaming for a longer period more than the usual synthetic benchmark, I sometimes see this card go beyond 86 degrees.
So, with all that being said, the AMD Radeon RX XT is a pretty decent card that can perform quite well and has significant improvement compared to previous generation cards from AMD thanks to its completely new architecture. But my advice is to check AIB cards and see how well they can improve the card in terms of thermals, sound levels and overall performance as the reference card is quite loud and still gets toasty especially after longer sustained load.Log in or Sign up.
Hi all, I am hoping you guys can help.Stuttering and poor performance RX 5700 XT Ryzen 7 3700x
The only way I have ben able to semi stop this is to cap the framerate to or below in the radeon software but it doesnt go completely and surely I shouldnt have to do that? My old nVidia ti run everything smoothly which should be a pile of junk in comparison. I have a completely clean install of Windows 10 using the latest drivers I am now not sure if it is a fault card or something else I need to change to get this to work properly.
It has been many years since I have had a nice card to use so taking all advice on settings for everything to ensure this is setup correctly. I am a bit of a loss as to what settings should be enabled both in the radeon software and in game. Should I be using freesync? The radeon software recommends a number of settings but should I have vertical refresh off, always on, enchaned?
Lots of settings but no obvious explination as to what they do. I am hoping someone can help me. I don't want to have to return it, I was looking forward to being able to finally game without everything looking like minecraft. Thank you. EDIT: forgot to add running x hz with everything highest settings reducing during testing for noise. LickehDec 10, JonasBeckmanDec 10, That's about my suggestion, you could chance and wait on the driver situation but the RMA and return time is also a thing and so that could be a important factor as well for having a enjoyable experience NOW and not later at some completely unknown future time frame.
EDIT: Factoring in the high refresh rate, p resolution and the way the card operates for earlier games or even anything less demanding So at p that's almost everything. Could try AMD VSR and do 4x so instead of x you're using x and downsampling but it's still working around a problem and might not always be a desirable "solution" nor might all games scale well plus other issues with downsampling and using workarounds for issues until they get properly fixed but it's been a thing since the cards came out and now it's almost six months so that also factors into why I would go for a return if it's not behaving as expected.
EU gives like what a two week open return process so that's not really a long time for waiting on a software fix for the drivers and US and elsewhere well whatever terms and conditions apply.
Last edited: Dec 10, Thank you for you reply. The noise is really quite loud. I can hear it clearly with the case closed over everything else. I am assuming that isn't normal behaviour for the card and should RMA it. Not sure if the monitor I have would work with gsync though. That or other Pascal models instead of Turing isn't bad either and for x it should be plenty powerful. Looks like the Ti is holding up well to the too so doubt it's going to have any problems. The noise if coil whine will increase with higher FPS, so try enabling and disabling V-Sync in a game and see if it gets quieter You should also run two separate power cables to the card, factors come into play like wire gauge for power delivery and grounding.
Yeah the voltage spikes and higher transients or how it was called for power draw makes it very discouraged to use 1x 8-pin to 2x 6-pin split PSU power cables even if the GPU technically pulls less power on average than earlier models before let's see the w cap that such a split could carry if the PSU has a strong enough rail for it but if it's something like that chances are the PSU would already come with multiple 6 or 8 pin cables or a single strong rail and there would likely be no need for a split cable like that.
EDIT: It doesn't quite do the same as Ryzen CPU's can but it's still something to consider and also applies for undervolting where it would draw well below the w total just to mention it. EDIT: Still a lot I don't know about the 's though or Navi in general, so many changes in hardware and the drivers, trying to learn but a lot of it is also pretty high level that I can barely get the basics of if even that.
So much to learn, entire power play thing is different or gone and there's SMU it seems to be called instead mentioned here and there in various Linux kernel code commits and snippets.
Last edited: Dec 12, JonasBeckmanDec 12, I am actually in the process to changing the PSU just awaiting delivery. It would appear on uncapped frame rates hitting above my monitor refresh rate hz it causes the noise.
I am running two seperate PCIe power cables and reinstalled using the latest Adrenaline package. It does appear to be slightly less noisy than before but the PSU is still screaching under load.Even in a more competitive graphics card scene than we've ever witnessed, it stands out. Processors like the AMD Ryzen 7 X and the brand new Ryzen 9 X have enabled AMD to make a dramatic comeback to the high-end of the processor market that nobody could have guessed a few years ago.
And, well, this graphics card succeeds. AMD hopes to boost rasterization performance in games by tailoring its graphics architecture specifically around gaming — rather than the compute-focused performance of the AMD Radeon VII.
This architecture should be able to provide up to 1. This boost to performance-per-clock is joined by the benefits to power efficiency brought by the move to 7nm. This is an open-source library of image-improving technologies, and should theoretically work on most GPUs — if not now, then in the future.
But, obviously these effects will work best on AMD processors. The AMD Radeon RX also has a feature for the esports players out there, who are less focused on image quality, and are more focused on raw performance. This mode will essentially tell your processor to wait until the GPU is ready before sending new frames to it. CPU: 3. No matter how many cool software features come to AMD Navi, the most important thing, especially in a post-Nvidia Turing landscape is raw performance.
It provides excellent p gaming performance, and plenty of features that will actually be usable from day one. If AMD is able to drop prices on this card by about 50 bucks or quid, this graphics card will be a no-brainer. Home Reviews.

When using the Radeon software I've tried to turn off every setting, chill, anti-lag, free-sync etc.
The cards GPU clock can go to 6 Mhz or in this case Mhz it seems to start at 6 Mhz and climb up for a brief period of time in the middle of a game, decreasing my FPS only to boost up right after giving me my FPS back. The temperature of the card is not high when this happens, in this case about 60 Celcius.
Sometimes the card is not even hot enough for the fans to start. So in short, I get lag spikes because the card decides to go into some sort of low power mode at random times.
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT review
Only to kick in right afterwards and boost the FPS back to normal. In this case the game displayed is StarCraft 2, but this has happened even worse so while gaming Apex Legends which is a real pain. Also to note that these two games are the only games I play as I don't use the PC for primarily gaming. The lag spikes occurs regardless of graphic settings and regardless of display and resolution, I can have them all on LOW or all at MAX.
I mean I'm at loss, I've recorded statistics of the card and PC while gaming with the problem, there's no odd cause what I can see more than that the card just clocks itself down for no apparent reason.
Any suggestion as to what the cause might be or what I can try next is greatly appreciated, I suspect this to be driver issues though. Here's the spike, you can see it almost at the end. The dead zone to the far right is when the game's been turned off an Windows explorer is displayed. The games run smoothly on a high FPS only to give me spikes at any random time.Sporting a new RDNA architecture that boosts performance while reducing power requirements, and with a price drop to keep AMD competitive with Nvidia's new RTX Super that launched last week, expectations from the faithful have been high.
Our primary purpose today is to show how it performs, check out the new features, and determine how it stacks up to the competition—both from Nvidia as well as AMD's existing portfolio. I mentioned this previously, but AMD's addition of a new 'Game Clock' muddies the waters, with AMD reporting maximum performance using the boost clock instead of the game clock.
The game clock is a relatively conservative estimate of the actual in-game clockspeeds the RX family will see, meaning games will usually run at higher clockspeeds. That's the same approach Nvidia takes with its boost clock, while AMD's boost clock is sort of the maximum clock the GPUs will see there's actually still some 'silicon lottery' luck involved where some GPUs may actually exceed the stated boost clock.
Anyway, don't get too hung up on comparing GFLOPS as there are architectural differences and in the end it's gaming performance that matters. While the circuit boards, memory, and GPU are the same, there are some design differences for the cooling shroud.
Specifically, the RX XT has a grooved shroud with a curved section that has resulted in some "dented" jokes. The idea is that the indent provides for additional airflow, particularly in confined spaces—like if you're running CrossFire. I'm not sure how much it really matters, and often the curviness looks more like a weird manufacturing defect than something truly necessary, but it ends up mostly as an aesthetic opinion.
Some may like it, some won't, and there will inevitably be custom cards from AMD's partners that ditch the blower cooling and go with two or three fans. AMD says the new cooling is better than its previous generation cards, though I'm not fully convinced.
It's not extremely loud—a far cry from the cooling on the Vega cards—but that probably has more to do with the lower power requirements than any massive change in the cooling design. Idle noise and thermals tend to be about the same for most GPUs, but playing a game is a different matter. It's not the end of the world, but objectively Nvidia wins by comparison. The reduction in price was also absolutely necessary and perhaps even premeditated.
With competition between AMD and Nvidia heating up, anyone looking to buy a new graphics card will benefit. Now that Navi is here, Nvidia has dropped the price you'll pay for relatively similar performance—e. There's no hardware level RT acceleration and no Tensor processing clusters for AI and machine learning. And just as critically, even though it's possible to support DXR via drivers and shader calculations, AMD isn't doing that either at least not yet.
Let's get to the testing, where we're using our standard GPU test bed—full specs are to the right. The overclocked Core iK running at 5. We've benchmarked using the latest drivers available at the time of testing, including retesting older GPUs to ensure our results are up to date.
All Nvidia GPUs were tested with the For AMD, we used the Sadly, there simply isn't enough time to do that, especially when new drivers arrive every few weeks. We also checked Vulkan performance in Strange Brigadeand found that the DX12 implementation is currently a bit faster so we stuck with that.Search titles only.

Navi 5700xt microstutter, lag?
Did not change a thing. Kexts are the same as before and up to date. I read that HDMI might work? Maybe try updating to Catalina I spent so many hours trying to get it running, it sucks! I returned both of them and will go on with the iGPU again. Hi guys, I am having the same issue.
But how does it stack up against the competition?
Featuring dualmm fans that pull air directly onto the large, it comes with an aluminum heatsink with a copper baseplate underneath. This has proved a capable design, that although improved by board partners which added additional fans or more capable heatsinks, is enough to allow for automated overclocking out of the box.
It does get a little noisy, but it keeps the card nice and cool. More on that below. Aesthetically, both cards are quite distinct, with the RTX having an arguably more premium look with its material choices. Some have suggested that looks like someone squeezed the card too hard when handling it, but we quite like the look. It should be noted that the Nvidia RTX Founders Edition features higher clock speed and pricing than some of its entry-level, add-in-board partner editions. Although specifications can never tell the whole story, especially with GPUs, there are some interesting take-homes from this comparison.
The process node is the first one, with AMD having a significant advantage in transistor size over the Nvidia competition. The rest is improvements in its RDNA architecture. We expect this frequency to be much more common and even raised perhaps to 2GHz in the third-party options and with overclocking. They are promising, though, and suggest AMD is at least competitive.
The Nvidia card supports ray tracing and deep learning super sampling. All Nvidia cards also support its G-Sync frame syncing technology, as well as Nvidia Ansel for taking high-resolution screenshots, and the Nvidia GeForce experience for capturing in-game screenshots and footage for streaming and recording.
The RX XT adds support for Radeon Image Sharpening and Fidelity FXtwo post-processing techniques that can improve some segments of a game scene which might otherwise appear blurry due to too heavy-handed anti-aliasing or low resolution textures.
Fidelity FX is open source, though it must be enabled by the game developer, while the Radeon Image Sharpening can be enabled in any game.
