How well can the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI 8GB run games
2 Aug 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI 8GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Here is a performance review on how capable the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI 8GB is at running the more popular games of 2020. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. The Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI 8GB can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 988 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI 8GB is predicted to run Grand Theft Auto VI with reasonable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 55 frames per second. Comparing this to Horizon: Zero Dawn which is predicted to get strong results, where it averages 86 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Death Stranding, which is running at 75 frames per second.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Grand Theft Auto VI to predict how the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI 8GB would deal with it. Our research revealed a playable series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 110 FPS, Medium: 86 FPS, High: 58 FPS and Ultra: 42 FPS. Next we looked at Horizon: Zero Dawn which we predict will be good with a 65 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Death Stranding that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 57. 1440p gaming on the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI 8GB is a very good hardware option at these screen sizes. Ultra is easily achieved across almost all games at 1440p and we would suggest an increase of screen size up to 4K for this graphics card.

How many years will the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI 8GB in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI 8GB? A suitable upgrade choice for the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI 8GB is the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which is 23% more powerful and can run 997 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 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 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
The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI 8GB competes with GeForce RTX 2070 8GB, which is available for $599.
Specs currently available suggest the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI 8GB performance should be in the same region as the GeForce RTX 2070.


System Suggestions
The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 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 4K. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
