Radeon RX 5700XT & Radeon RX5700 Gaming Benchmarks Continued
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is a tactical shooter game set in an open world environment and played from a third-person perspective with an optional first-person view for gun aiming. Players play as members of the Delta Company, First Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group, also known as “Ghosts”, a fictional elite special operations unit of the United States Army under the Joint Special Operations Command. The game can be played as a single-player experience or you can invite up to 3 of your friends to fill out your squad.
Ghost Recon Wildlands is a great equalizer in my opinion. It is brutal on all cards across the board. The Radeon GPUs keep the trend going here with the RX5700 able to sit in between the RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 and the RX5700 resting between the 2070 and the 2080. At 1080p, the RX5700 averaged 64 FPS and the 5700XT averaged 64 FPS. As we up the resolution to 1440, we see the cards fall just below 60 FPS with averages of 51 and 58. At 4K, performance is still above the 30 FPS mark at 32 for the RX5700 and 36 for the RX5700XT.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is an action role-playing game with first-person shooter and stealth mechanics. Players take the role of Adam Jensen, a man equipped with mechanical cybernetic implants called augmentations.
Much like we saw in FarCry 5, the Radeon GPUs perform well on an AMD optimized title. At 1080p, we see both Radeon GPUs eclipse the RTX 2070 at 91 FPS and 100 FPS. At 1440p, similar results occur and the RX5700 is able to best the 2070 with an average frame rate of 63. The 5700XT is able to match the performance of the RTX 2080 with an average frame rate of 69. When we crank up the resolution to 4K, there’s really hardly any difference in the cards on the field at this point. I know the charts make it look like a large lead but really it’s not. If we look at the RTX 2080 performance, you can see there are only 6 frames per second difference from the RX5700. As I said in the beginning, this is an AMD optimized title so, keep that in mind.
Battlefield V is a first-person shooter video game developed by EA DICE and published by Electronic Arts. Battlefield V is the sixteenth installment in the Battlefield series. Battlefield V features a limited single-player campaign in the form of War Stories, the rest of the missions and adventures are online multiplayer. For this specific test, I did not have DXR or DLSS turned on.
Even though Battlefield V supports Nvidia’s RTX and DLSS technologies, I would assume this would be an Nvidia optimized title. The Radeon cards do a good job here keeping up with the cards from the green team. At 1080p, the RX5700 averaged 128 FPS, in 1440 96 FPS average and in 4K 52 average frame rate. The RX5700XT averaged 136 frames per second at 1080p, 99 FPS and 1440, and at 4K averaged 56 frames per second.
Final Fantasy XV is an action role-playing game developed and published by Square Enix as part of the long-running Final Fantasy series. It was released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2016, and for Microsoft Windows in 2018. The game features an open world environment and action-based battle system, incorporating quick-switching weapons, elemental magic, and other features such as vehicle travel and camping. Final Fantasy XV was the first production game to feature DLSS. The test results below are with DLSS off.
Final Fantasy XV is a heavily optimized game on the Nvidia GPUs. This was really apparent during the benchmark test. When testing the Radeon cards massive studders would happen and the screen would freeze for up to 6 seconds. This was especially apparent on the RX5700XT at 1080p. At 1080p, the results show that the RX5700 actually pulls ahead of the XT card. Again, the studders were only apparent on the XT card and at 1080p. This is the average frame rate across three runs. FFXV really doesn’t like playing well with the XT GPU. The RX5700, however, did well with an average frame rate of 107 at 1080p. At 1440, things were a bit smoother but I still experienced micro studders while doing frame captures. The average frame rate at 1440 was 75 FPS and 79 FPS respectively. At 4k, the benchmark run smoothed out considerably and the Radeon cards behaved as I’d previously experienced. The RX5700 was able to match the performance of the RTX 2060 with an average of 42 FPS and the 5700XT matched the 2070 with an average of 47 FPS.
