In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary.

The RX 5700 XT has a 75 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the RX 6700 XT. This results in the RX 5700 XT providing 12 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 XT has a 75 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 6700 XT and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RX 5700 XT providing 4.8 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 RX 6700 XT was released over a year more recently than the RX 5700 XT, and so the RX 6700 XT 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 6700 XT has 4096 MB more video memory than the RX 5700 XT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX 6700 XT also has superior memory performance overall.

The memory bandwidth of the Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB and the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary are the same, which means the RX 6700 XT and the RX 5700 XT have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB and the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary have 2560 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the RX 6700 XT is 3328 and by the RX 5700 XT is 3295. Knowing that the shader performance of the RX 6700 XT is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB requires 170 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary requires 225 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the RX 6700 XT and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the RX 5700 XT. The RX 5700 XT requires 55 Watts more than the RX 6700 XT to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX 5700 XT may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 6700 XT.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB is an Enthusiast gaming Graphics Card based on the second (2.0) Revision of the RDNA Architecture.

Architecture
The Navi 22 GPU offers support for GDDR6 Memory, DirectX 12.0, Vulkan 1.0, and OpenGL 4.5. This variant of the Navi 22 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 2500 MHz with boost clock. This puts its predicted performance roughly in line with the GeForce RTX 3070.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1605 MHz, rising to 2500 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 12GB. 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, 12GB 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 170W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB competes with GeForce RTX 3070 8GB, which is available for $499.
Specs currently available suggest the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB performance should be in the same region as the GeForce RTX 3070.
System Suggestions
AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB 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.
