Radeon RX 5700XT & Radeon RX5700 Gaming Benchmarks
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is an action-adventure video game developed by Eidos Montréal in conjunction with Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix. It continues the narrative from the 2013 game Tomb Raider and its sequel Rise of the Tomb Raider. These tests were done with Ray tracing and DLSS turned off.
The Radeon cards performed pretty well in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. At 1080p, the RX5700 averaged 93 frames per second and the RX5700XT with a few frames more at 103 average. At 1440p, the RX5700 averaged 71 frames per second and the RX5700XT averaged 78 frames per second. At 4K scores get even closer as the RX5700 yielded 36 frames per second and the XT variant 40 frames per second. In all three resolutions, the RX5700 was able to exceed the performance of the RTX 2060 and match the performance of the RTX 2070. The RX5700XT’s performance puts it between the RTX 2070 and the RTX 2080.
Witcher 3 closes the chapter on Geralt’s life. The game features a massive open world that the player can explore. Witcher 3 uses REDEngine developed independently by CD Projekt RED. The game engine features stunning visuals.
Witcher 3 allows the Radeon cards to really get some legs at 1080p and 1440. The non-XT GPU was able to match the performance of the RTX 2070 with an average frame rate of 93 frames per second. The RX5700XT sits firmly between the RTX 2070 and the RTX 2080 with an average frame rate of 103. At 1440 the gap narrows a bit as the RX 5700 still beats the RTX 2070 with a frame rate of 78 FPS. The RX5700XT is still planted between the two higher RTX cards with an average frame rate of 78 FPS. At 4K the differences narrow considerably and the RX5700 is able to beat out the RTX 2060 and narrowly match the RTX 2070. The same can be said for the RX5700XT as it matches the performance of the RTX 2070 at 45 FPS. The RTX 2080 is able to extend a considerable lead at 60 frames per second.
Mordor: Shadow of War is an action RPG game based on the novels of J. R. R. Tolkien. It’s the sequel to Monolith’s successful Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor game and the events of the game take place after The Hobbit but before the Lord of the Rings. The game builds upon the nemesis system that made the first game such a surprise hit, and it’s just brutal to PC hardware.
Shadow of War was brutal to the minimum frames on the Radeon cards. In all three cases, we see the RX5700 matching the performance of the RTX 2060 and the RX5700XT matching the performance of the RTX 2070.
Far Cry 5 is an action-adventure first-person shooter video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Toronto and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It is the successor to the 2014 video game Far Cry 4, and the fifth main installment in the Far Cry series. The game was released on March 27, 2018
FarCry 5 is an AMD optimized title and I’d expect to see the Radeon GPUs do well in this test. And they do. At 1080p, The RX5700 matches the performance of the RTX 2070 with an average frame rate of 120 and the RX5700XT is nipping on the heels of the RTX2080 with an average frame rate of 129 frames per second. At 1440 that trend continues although to a lesser extent and the RX cards average 88 FPS for the RX5700 and 99 for the 5700 XT. As we get to 4K the prowess of the RTX 2080 allows it to outpace the RX5700XT but the XT card still sits somewhere between the RTX 2070 and the RTX 2080. At 4k The RX5700 averages 47 FPS and the RX5700XT yields 52 FPS.
