In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q.

The RX 5700 has a 490 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2060. This results in the RX 5700 providing 94 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 RX 5700 has a 490 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the RTX 2060. This results in the RX 5700 providing 47 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 RTX 2060 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 RX 5700 has 2048 MB more video memory than the RTX 2060, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX 5700 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 5700 has 184 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 2060, which means that the memory performance of the RX 5700 is massively better than the RTX 2060.

The GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q has 1920 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 2060 is 2275 and the actual shader performance of the RX 5700 is 2583. The RX 5700 having 308 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 5700 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RTX 2060.

The RX 5700 transistor size technology is 5 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RTX 2060. This means that the RX 5700 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RTX 2060.

The GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q requires 65 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 RX 5700, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the RTX 2060. The RX 5700 requires 115 Watts more than the RTX 2060 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX 5700 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RTX 2060.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q is the low-power variant of the RTX 2060 Mobile and is a mid-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card for laptops based on the Turing GPU architecture. It is considered a great price to performance graphics card. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. The GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q supports real-time ray-tracing and excels at 1080p screen resolution. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106 which has 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The central unit runs at 975 MHz and goes up to 1185 MHz in Boost mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1375MHz, or 11GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 65W the RTX 2060 Max-Q is averagely resource-intensive and will fairly significantly reduce laptop battery life at full load. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2060 6GB Max-Q is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a mid-range 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.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1465 MHz, rising to 1725 MHz with boost clock enabled..

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with high-speed GDDR6 and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit memory interface, providing total memory bandwidth of 448 GB/s.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 8GB. 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, 8GB 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 180W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with one available 8+6-pin connector.

Performance
The AMD Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB competes with GeForce RTX 2070 8GB, which is available for $499.
Specs currently available suggest the AMD Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB performance should be in the same region as the Radeon RX Vega 64.
System Suggestions
The AMD Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). For the most demanding AAA games it should be ideally suited to 1440p. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
