In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB.

The RX 5700 XT has a 105 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce RTX 3070, but the GeForce RTX 3070 has 52 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 5700 XT. As a result, the GeForce RTX 3070 exhibits a 61.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the RX 5700 XT. 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 XT has a 105 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce RTX 3070 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RX 5700 XT providing 6.7 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 GeForce RTX 3070 was released over a year more recently than the RX 5700 XT, and so the GeForce RTX 3070 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the RX 5700 XT.

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 XT has 1 MB more video memory than the GeForce RTX 3070, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX 5700 XT also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 5700 XT has 448 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce RTX 3070, which means that the memory performance of the RX 5700 XT is massively better than the GeForce RTX 3070.

The GeForce RTX 3070 has 5888 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce RTX 3070 is 10186 and the actual shader performance of the RX 5700 XT is 3170. The GeForce RTX 3070 having 7016 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the RX 5700 XT performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce RTX 3070 requires 220 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB requires 225 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the GeForce RTX 3070 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the RX 5700 XT. The RX 5700 XT requires 5 Watts more than the GeForce RTX 3070 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the RX 5700 XT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce RTX 3070.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 3070 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Ampere Architecture. This card has also been rumoured to be called the GeForce GTX 2170. Architecture It equips an Ampere GPU Codenamed GA104 which is a First Gen Ampere GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 2944 Shader Processing Units, 212 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Ampere architecture provides the world's best consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It also has 544 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU Name: GA102 GPU The central unit runs at 1424MHz and goes up to 1872MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Third Gen GDDR6 through a 320-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448 Gb/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 220W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with available 8-pin + 6-pin power connector. Performance Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 3070 suggests it will be faster than the Geforce RTX 2070 Super, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 3070 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.Overview
The Radeon RX 5700 XT 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 40 Compute Units activated, offering 2560 Shader Processing Units, 160 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The GPU features a 1605 MHz base clock speed and up to 1905 MHz with boost clock, making it an estimated 15% 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 1605 MHz, rising to 1905 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 225W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with one available 8+6-pin connector.

Performance
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB competes with GeForce RTX 2070 8GB, which is available for $599.
Specs currently available suggest the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB performance should be in the same region as the GeForce RTX 2070.
System Suggestions
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 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 4K. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
