In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5900 are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB.

The Radeon RX 5900 has a 140 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 5700. This results in the Radeon RX 5900 providing 45.8 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon RX 5900 has a 140 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 5700 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon RX 5900 providing 8.9 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon RX 5900 was released less than a year after the RX 5700, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The Radeon RX 5900 and the Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the Radeon RX 5900 and the Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB are the same, which means the Radeon RX 5900 and the RX 5700 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The Radeon RX 5900 has 2560 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon RX 5900 is 3170 and the actual shader performance of the RX 5700 is 2583. The Radeon RX 5900 having 587 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon RX 5900 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 5700.

The Radeon RX 5900 requires 225 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB requires 180 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the Radeon RX 5900 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the RX 5700. The Radeon RX 5900 requires 45 Watts more than the RX 5700 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon RX 5900 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 5700.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The Radeon RX 5900 is an Enthusiast gaming Graphics Card based on the first (1.0) Revision of the RDNA 2 Architecture. These specs are yet to be confirmed.

Architecture
The Big Navi 10 XL GPU offers support for GDDR6 Memory, DirectX 12.0, Vulkan 1.0, and OpenGL 4.5. This variant of the Big Navi 10 XL GPU features 40 Compute Units activated, offering XX Shader Processing Units, XX TMUs and XX ROPs. The GPU features a XX MHz base clock speed and up to XX MHz with boost clock, making it an estimated XX% faster than a Radeon RX Vega 64. This puts its predicted performance roughly in line with the GeForce RTX 2080.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at XX MHz, rising to XX MHz with boost clock enabled.

The GPU is equipped with high-speed GDDR6 and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit memory interface, providing total memory bandwidth of XX GB/s.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to XXGB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However,the GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming, In some limited scenarios, XXGB might be a bottleneck and Performance could be better were the Frame Buffer larger, however this would only be an issue in the most demanding games.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 225W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with one available 8+6-pin connector.

Performance
AMD Radeon RX 5900 competes with GeForce RTX 2070 8GB, which is available for $599.
Specs currently available suggest the AMD Radeon RX 5900 performance should be in the same region as the GeForce RTX 2070.
System Suggestions
AMD Radeon RX 5900 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). For the most demanding AAA games it should be ideally suited to 4K. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
The AMD Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB is an Enthusiast gaming Graphics Card based on the first (1.0) Revision of the RDNA Architecture.

Architecture
The Navi 10 XL GPU offers support for GDDR6 Memory, DirectX 12.0, Vulkan 1.0, and OpenGL 4.5. This variant of the Navi 10 XL GPU features 36 Compute Units activated, offering 2304 Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The GPU features a 1465 MHz base clock speed and up to 1725 MHz with boost clock, making it an estimated 15% faster than a GeForce RTX 2060. This puts its predicted performance roughly in line with the Radeon RX Vega 64.
