How well can the Radeon RX 5700 XT Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB run games
15 Sep 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the Radeon RX 5700 XT Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2020 popular games. This short Radeon RX 5700 XT Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. This graphics hardware can run 990 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a strong frame rate from Cyberpunk 2077 with 83 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Marvel's Avengers which returns a strong 87 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Microsoft Flight Simulator which we saw getting a good 76 FPS.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the Radeon RX 5700 XT Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB will run the upcoming game Cyberpunk 2077 to a good performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 167 FPS, Medium: 132 FPS, High: 89 FPS and Ultra: 63 FPS. Another game tested was Marvel's Avengers, L: 175FPS, M: 138FPS, H: 93FPS, U: 66FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Microsoft Flight Simulator, which returned L: 153FPS, M: 121FPS, H: 81FPS, U: 58FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 5700 XT Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB we get the impression that it is a strong choice at these screen resolutions. With Ultra graphics settings being regularly reached at 1440p gaming its easy to consider bumping up the screen size to 4K for this graphics card.

How many years will the Radeon RX 5700 XT Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 5700 XT Sapphire Nitro+ 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 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB? Are you looking to upgrade a Radeon RX 5700 XT Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB? Then we would suggest getting a 20 Series GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, as it can run 998 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 21% increased graphics performance.

Radeon RX 5700 XT Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT Sapphire Nitro+ 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 1770 MHz base clock speed and up to 2010 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 1770 MHz, rising to 2010 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 265W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with one available 8+8-pin connector.


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


System Suggestions
The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT Sapphire Nitro+ 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.
