Performance Results: 2560 x 1440
Given what we’ve already seen from GeForce RTX 2060 Super and 2070 Super, both of AMD’s Radeon RX 5700-series cards are best suited to gaming at 2560 x 1440. They’re also beyond ample for 1920 x 1080, though we don’t think you need to spend $350 or $400 dollars for smooth frame rates at that resolution.
Across our benchmark suite, Radeon RX 5700 XT averages 9.9%-higher frame rates than the GeForce RTX 2060 Super at 2560 x 1440. Radeon RX 5700 averages 11%-higher frame rates than the GeForce RTX 2060 at the same resolution. The GeForce RTX 2070 Super does serve up average frame rates 6.9% higher than Radeon RX 5700 XT, but it costs 25% more.
Compared to AMD’s previous generation, Radeon RX 5700 XT achieves 15%-higher average frame rates than Radeon RX Vega 64 at a $100-lower launch price.
Before any of the GeForce RTX Super cards were announced, AMD said it was targeting GeForce RTX 2070 with its Radeon RX 5700 XT. The top-end Navi card does deliver 6.4%-higher average frame rates than its intended GeForce mark, which means it often lands close to the venerable GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
